2003 Land Rover Range Rover - Price Quote

Visit Land Rover for more information on the Land Rover Range Rover.

The 2003 Land Rover Range Rover is the largest vehicle in this manufacturer's line-up. Big brother to the compact Freelander and the slightly smaller but full-sized comfort-oriented Discovery, the Range Rover has been described as "the most capable vehicle in the world".

For 2003, the Range Rover has seen the comfort levels be brought up to rival the supreme standard of the off-road, go anywhere/do anything performance profile. Add to these two ingredients iconic exterior styling and the winning combination you are left with can only be Range Rover.

Available Models
The 2003 Land Rover Range Rover comes in only one trim level- the top one, HSE.

Interior Features
You name it and the 2003 Land Rover Range Rover probably has it as standard equipment. Air conditioning with dual-zone automatic climate control combines with leather upholstered power seats with memory settings to provgide occupant comfort levels that are second to very few.

The list doubles in size when you add driving convenience features like heated power mirrors, day/night rear-view mirror, power steering etc, and then doubles again when you add utilitarian functions. Compass, analog clock, trip computer, DVD navigation system and of course, the Harmon Kardon premium audio system.

Exterior Features
Changes have been made to the 2003 Range Rover increasing its height and making it longer than the original model. Also, greater ground clearance and steeper approach and departure angles add to the capability and the credible off-road look of this versatile auto.

The real Range Rover story comes when the hood is opened. This is only the third all-new Range Rover in 31 years and it has been made with more power than ever before although with a smaller, lighter and more efficient powerplant. On this one, an all-aluminum, 4.4-litre V8 BMW manufactured engine has been thoroughly modified for off-road use on a Land Rover platform and as such it is fully capable of wading through water, heavy-duty towing and negotiating steep off-road angles.

A free-revving, 32-valve V8, it produces 282 horsepower at 5,400 rpm and generates 325 lbs-ft of torque at 3,600 rpm. A state-of-the-art five-speed transmission provides fully automatic and CommandShift manual operation.

Safety and Security
Billed as the safest Land Rover ever produced, the Range Rover has every safety innovation the designers could find. Passive safety technology includes dual front airbags, front side airbags, front and rear side head-protection airbags, state of the art three-point belts with pretensioners in all outboard positions and the child seat restraint LATCH system.

Extensive active safety technology includes antilock 4-wheel disc brakes with brake assist, hill descent control, an antiskid system, a tire-pressure monitor, and both front- and rear-obstacle-detection systems.
