Does the 2023 Land Rover Defender 110 V8 ‘Out-Defender’ the OG?

Maybe the 2023 Land Rover Defender 110 V8 isn’t perfect, but neither was the old Defender – isn’t that kind of the point?

Update: 2013 Jaguar XF 2.0T

Jaguar’s XF is a dark horse. In a segment where deciding on a car generally means deciding which color of gray your Audi, BMW, Mercedes-Benz will be, the XF is quietly confident sitting in the background. It’s almost certainly the best looking car in its segment, and its interior is a delightful departure from the black, aluminum, and modernist interiors of the competition. The material choices are warm and inviting, and most everything feels good to the touch.

Big Apple Debut Planned For New Range Rover Sport

Land Rover’s new, fourth-generation Range Rover was a huge leap over the third-generation SUV. Therefore, it’s logical to assume that the Range Rover Sport will be a similarly big update. We’ll find out for certain in just a few weeks, as Land Rover has announced that the new Range Rover Sport is coming to the 2013 New York International Auto Show.

Driven: 2013 Land Rover Range Rover HSE

The fourth-generation Range Rover is better in literally every area; cabin design, exterior sheetmetal, powertrains, ride and handling, and even fuel economy. No stone has been unturned, and the result is what is not only the best vehicle in its class, but quite possibly the finest all-around vehicle money can buy.

Quick Drive: 2012 Land Rover Range Rover Sport Supercharged Limited Edition

As for the Range Rover Sport driving experience, it’s just as good as we remember. Jaguar/Land Rover could slot this 5.0-liter, supercharged V-8 in every vehicle it made, and we’d be happy as clams. Even in this heavy SUV, it is supremely quick. The run to 60 happens fast, but climbing from highway speeds is what’s really impressive. After some harassment by an overzealous Toyota Corolla, we dipped into the skinny pedal and found ourselves clipping along well into the triple digits.

Driven: 2012 Mercedes-Benz ML63 AMG

AMG has seemed to master the big power from its turbos with a minimum of lag. Even though they are pumping out 18.8 pounds of boost, the 5.5-liter V-8 still gets up and goes with little hesitation. Power is abundant in low, middle, and high parts of the rev range, which allowed us to dive into the throttle at nearly any engine speed and get pushed back in the big AMG-spec leather seats. Power delivery, despite the big turbos, is quite linear and predictable, with a broad, accessible torque curve. The throttle response is pleasingly crisp and responsive, as well.

Lessons In Design: 2012 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque

We wanted to see how residential designers would look at a good example of automotive design. We were also curious to compare that reaction to our car journalist’s view and the view of consumers on the street. We chose the Land Rover Range Rover Evoque as our subject car because it is relatively new and we wanted a fresh evaluation. We also chose the Evoque because it is an attempt to create something of a new segment: the stylish, high-end, urban active lifestyle vehicle. Any time designers work in a new or nearly new segment, the design problem gets more complex because trial and error hasn’t vetted many ideas, some of which inevitably prove unsatisfactory. We drove the Evoque extensively around LA, through Hollywood, Beverly Hills, and Venice and, of course, on the 405, the 105, the 5, the 10, the 101 and the PCH.

Driven: 2012 Land Rover LR4 HSE Lux

A whiff of sophistication and elegance seems evident from the first tall step one takes into the LR4 cabin. Materials feel of a high quality if not overtly rich—there are certainly plastics in evidence, though few enough and nice enough that we don’t mind them. Controls are laid out in a reasonable fashion; the instrument panel is a bit button-heavy, but most drivers won’t take more than a few days to understand the fundaments. Perhaps most importantly, the controls that come to hand most often, steering wheel, gear lever, door handles, etc, all feel very robust and thoughtfully appointed.

Comparison Test: 2012 BMW X3 xDrive35i vs. 2012 Infiniti EX35 vs. 2012 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque vs. 2012 Volvo XC60 R-Design

We wanted to put Evoque to the test. Lining up the big-selling BMW X3, the ultra-powerful Volvo XC60 R-Design, and the original-gangster-small-crossover Infiniti EX35, we figured to have great representation within this class.

Base Versus Loaded: 2013 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque Five-Door

Until then, though, let’s take a deeper dive into the smallest vehicle to wear the Range Rover badge, the Evoque. The Evoque is available in three different trims: Pure, Prestige, and Dynamic. Pure represents the base (but still amazingly well-equipped) model, while Prestige is the luxury oriented offering and Dynamic has a sportier lean. Both the Prestige and Dynamic are strikingly similar, except for a few very minor areas. Still, the Prestige is slightly more expensive to start (by about $900), while the Dynamic is pricier overall.

Comfort/Involvement Index: 2012 Land Rover Range Rover Supercharged

Involvement Notes: All the on- and off-road prowess of the standard Range Rover, but with a forced-induction punch that makes it feel nicely quick. Despite the overall size, it’s still quite agile. Feedback through the suspension is limited, but a talkative steering rack makes up for that. One of our favorite big SUVs.

First Look: 2013 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque Special Edition

Beijing is shaping up to be the show for limited-edition luxury vehicles. First we saw the Jaguar XJ Ultimate, and now there’s the Land Rover Range Rover Special Edition. And yes, Mrs. Beckham helped with this.
