Santa Barbara Auto Group is proud to announce that Autobytel has named the 2014 Land Rover Range Rover as the 2014 Truck of the year. This category honors the truck or SUV that earns the highest respect and votes from Autobytel editors.

“We are so proud to represent and provide our customers with outstanding vehicles from Land Rover,” shares Land Rover Santa Barbara General Sales Manager, Scott Westbrook. “The Range Rover continues to be a customer favorite and the awards are certainly well deserved for this remarkable vehicle.”

The 2014 Land Rover Range Rover gained high marks for its new supercharged 3.0-liter V-6 engine. The power still remains healthy with the six-cylinder developing 340 horses and 332 lb-ft of torque, but the real advantage is in the fuel mileage that now returns 17mpg in the city and 23mpg on the highway. Still, it remains as quick as almost any sport sedan on the market, excellent handling, and a refined four wheel drive powertrain systems that can get you anywhere you need to go.

Another stand out feature is the constantly adjusting air springs on the Range Rover making it glide over the pavement and soak up every unfortunate bump in the road to deliver a remarkably comfortable ride for all passengers. The Range Rover stays completely flat even at high speeds due to the active anti-body roll system managing its sway bars for maximum stability. The air springs provide another benefit allowing the SUV to be raised to provide additional ground clearance in the off-road mode or lowered to the ground in Access mode to make it easier to get in and out of the tall SUV.

Whether you plan on taking the Range Rover off-road or just navigating your local terrain there is nothing the Range Rover cannot get through. The Terrain Select system allows drivers to customize the Land Rover’s four-wheel drive system when faced with a specific problem. There are settings for grass/gravel/snow, mud and ruts, rock crawling, sand, and a low-range feature. The test drivers at Autobytel tried and “couldn’t get this rig stuck.”

Autobytel editors were impressed by not only the fuel economy and the power, but the impressive luxury touches found in the Range Rover. Not only did they name it Truck of the year, but labeled the Range Rover “as close to a perfect luxury SUV as human hands can build” and “the most capable luxury SUV ever offered for sale.”

Here at Santa Barbara Auto Group we believe that without a question, this is the best Range Rover the Land Rover Company has ever offered. Interested drivers are welcome to call, email, or visit Land Rover Santa Barbara to learn more about this incredible SUV or to schedule a test drive today.
