By: Carol Mitchel

Land Rover is claiming that the latest Range Rover is made quieter than its forerunner. The 2007 model was also given sharper to further boost its hushed performance.

Adaptations in the 2007 version include the aspirated 4.4-liter V-8 produces 305 horsepower that produces 325 pounds-feet of torque. The supercharged version, on the other hand, uses a 4.2-liter V-8 that generates 400 horsepower that delivers 420 pounds-feet of torque. Both V-8 engines team with a ZF six-speed-automatic transmission. They are capable of generating far better power than the previous BMW Inline 6.

Rover used the latest advances in car technology to produce enhanced , suspension, adaptive headlights, lattice-like grille, a tire-pressure monitor, and Terrain Response system. The latter includes a touchscreen that works with the navigation, audio and phone systems. Said touchscreen conveys off-road traffic information to the driver. Terrain Response system lets drivers dial in even when driving on snow and sand. Said system adjusts throttle, suspension, and brakes to accommodate the terrain. The supercharged version also utilizes an electronic rear differential. Further, the improved air suspension is fitted with an adjustable ride height.

Land Rover is famous for its unsurpassed off-road vehicle capabilities. These capabilities are matched with a brand new look that is brought about by its firmer monocoque body with integrated chassis. The car maker also focused on the modifications of power vents, wheels and lamps.

The SUV accommodates up to five occupants. Its posh interior is trimmed in luxurious leather and wood. The interior is also equipped with Three-zone automatic air conditioning, power seats, and nicely sized leather steering wheel. Backseat DVD entertainment, rearview camera and special stainless-steel pedals are incorporated in the supercharged version of the vehicle.

With regards to safety, 2007 Range Rover is given 8 standard airbags, antilock brakes and all-terrain Dynamic Stability Control to secure car occupants.
