How would you spec the 2022 Range Rover SV?
A few months ago, Land Rover introduced the all-new Range Rover. It featured a bold redesign and looks more elegant than ever before, both inside and out. At the time of its launch, customers only had limited choices in terms of trim and variants.
Today, the British marque has expanded its lineup by introducing an even posher version of the SUV – the Range Rover SV. Best of all, you can make your SV distinct from the rest. Land Rover's Special Vehicle Operations (SVO) is offering over 1.6 million ways to customize the Range Rover SV.
The design of the Range Rover SV looks similar to the standard Range Rover. In fact, it's hard to tell the two apart if you don't look closely. Up front, the SV features a slightly restyled bumper and grille design. The lower grille also adopts horizontal slots featuring full-width metal-plated bars – a design feature exclusive to the SV.
Customers can also fit 23-inch forged Diamond Turned Dark Grey Gloss alloys or choose between 13 other designs. To further distinguish it from a standard Range Rover, there's an SV logo on the tailgate and the fender blade. As for colors, 14 unique paint finishes are exclusive to the SV with matching contrast colors.
While the exterior updates are subtle, there's a big difference inside the cabin of the Range Rover SV. For starters, Land Rover used ceramic for several trim pieces inside the cabin such as the shifter, volume control, and Terrain Response dial. The automaker says the production process for the ceramics alone takes 10 weeks to finish.
Aside from ceramic, wood veneers and mosaic marquetry can also be spec'd by customers for their own Ranger Rover SV. Each piece is handcrafted by the artisans at SVO. Long wheelbase versions can even have the marquetry extend from the front up to the fridge door at the rear. Land Rover will also offer a wide variety of leather for the seats. However, customers can also opt for sustainable fabrics.
If the 1.6 million choices are a bit too much, Land Rover is offering curated design themes. Customers can then adjust their specs from there. As for the powertrain, the 530PS Twin Turbo V8, 510PS Extended-Range plug-in hybrid (SWB only), and the D350 straight-six Ingenium diesel are all available.
Land Rover didn't say how much the new Range Rover SV will cost. Tick all the right options, however, and it will be one very expensive SUV.
