Average Guy’s Review: 2012 Range Rover Supercharged
Range Rovers are the SUVs you drive when you have made it to the big leagues. Everyone knows what a Range Rover is, and knows how luxurious they are. But when you look at a brand new Range Rover, you think it is JUST a luxury SUV and nothing more. However, Range Rovers have always been amazing off-roading vehicles even though they have that fancy exterior. Range Rovers are truly a wolf in sheep’s clothing. These SUVs are meant to give you a smooth ride on the trails and make you feel like you are in first class at the same time.
Here is our Average Guy’s review on the 2012 Range Rover Supercharged.
Price: Tested Model Price $99,420
Engine: 5.0L V8
Torque: 461 lb-ft
Weight: 5,891 lbs
Top Speed: N/A
How did you feel about the exterior of the car?
-Well, it most certainly is a Range Rover. It has the distinct feel that you normally get with Range Rover. There are small changes, like the lights but for the most part it is the same Range Rover.
How did you feel about the interior of the car?
-This car has such an incredible interior. When I sat down I was greeted by incredibly comfortable seats. Everything was easy to reach, and the styling was gorgeous. While the car was off, I was greeted by a screensaver type image on the speedometer. As soon as I turned the car on, the screens came alive and presented all the gauges in a glorious fashion.
What was your favorite part about driving the car?
-There was a great amount of power at the wheels. As soon as I stepped on the pedal, the Range Rover got up on it. And what made the power even better was the smooth ride. This SUV has a high price for a reason, and it shows in how smooth the ride is.
Did it have enough power?
-Like I said before, plenty of power. Continuous power while I was accelerating and could get off the line in a hurry.
What was your least favorite aspect of the car?
-Least favorite? Well, I guess it would have to be the media interface. Navigating through menus and what not was a pain. And the navigation was subpar. This was by far my least favorite and most frustrating aspect.
How much would you price this car at?
If you have the money and were looking for a car in this class, would you buy it? If not, which car would you buy?
-In this price range, I would have to go for a Porsche Cayenne Turbo or a BMW X6 M. The Porsche is worth the extra couple grand, but worth it. And the BMW X6 M is cheaper than the Range Rover and more my style.

that's a SPORT model.
And the X6 is an ugly car for the record (the reviewer said it better suited him)
