Following the debut of the updated 2018 Range Rover Sport, Land Rover has now unveiled the updates to the flagship Range Rover. The 2018 Range Rover gets an updated exterior with new LED headlights and several updates inside to make it even more comfortable.
The 2018 Range Rover gets some subtle updates, like a new grille with a Gloss Black surround and a new front bumper with wider vent blades. The LED headlights feature 24 LEDs with unique daytime running lights. There are new lower side accents with vent graphics with two alternative design schemes – Satin Body-Colored and Atlas Accent Finish. At the rear the bumper has been restyled and now integrates the exhaust tailpipes.
There are six new alloy wheel designs to choose from and two new design packs: the Black Exterior Pack or the Shadow Exterior Pack. As the names suggest, the Black Exterior Pack covers certain components in Narvik Black, like the badging, grille, mirror caps and door handles. The Shadow Exterior Pack uses a Shadow Atlas color, instead of the Narvik Black.
Inside the 2018 Range Rover gets wider front seats that are covered in higher quality leather. There are also new 20-way Oxford leather or 24-way Semi-Aniline leather front seats if you want to upgrade even further. Rear passengers aren’t ignored, since the rear seats also are wider and the power recline controls have been repositioned.
The 2018 Range Rover gets a list of new technology upgrades, like the two 10-inch touchscreens, which are part of the Touch Pro Duo infotainment system. The upper screen on the center console can be angled to counter glare and improve visibility while the fixed lower 10-inch display manages more functional tasks such as the climate control, seat and vehicle settings. In front of the driver there’s a 12-inch display dual dial, single dial and extended mode views available.
To keep everyone safe, there are new driver assistance technologies, like the Drive Pro Pack that adds High Speed Emergency Braking, Blind Spot Assist and Lane Keep Assist. The Park Pack adds a 360-degree Parking Aid, Reverse Traffic Monitor and Clear Exit Monitor. The 2018 Range Rover comes standard with a Rear Camera, Lane Departure Warning, Emergency Braking, Front and Rear Park Distance Control, Cruise Control and Speed Limiter.

The Range Rover SVAutobiography Dynamic is the range topping model with its 557 horsepower and 0-60 mph time of 5.1 seconds.
