  • New door seals to reduce cabin noise
  • Dampened lower tailgate for smoother operation

Overview
The 2009 Land Rover Range Rover, last redesigned in 2003, is mostly carryover from the 2008 model year. The Range Rover is Land Rover's flagship model, and is known around the world for its combination of luxury and true off-road capability. For 2009, the Range Rover adds a new Autobiography option package on Supercharged models. Additionally, the 2009 Range Rover offers upgraded leather on the steering wheel and dashboard, along with new door seals for a quieter cabin and tailgate refinements for smoother operation.

Model Lineup
The 2009 Land Rover Range Rover is available in V8 HSE and V8 Supercharged models. The only significant differentiator between the two is under the hood. The HSE is equipped with a 4.4-liter V-8 engine while the Supercharged model receives a supercharged 4.2-liter V-8 engine. A few other features are standard only on the Supercharged model, such as a unique grille and side vents, Windsor leather-trimmed interior, 20-inch aluminum wheels, a locking rear differential, and performance-oriented front brakes.

Options on the 2009 Land Rover Range Rover V8 HSE include 20-inch, 7-spoke alloy wheels; electronically controlled, infinitely variable locking rear differential; rear-seat entertainment system; and a luxury interior package that includes 14-way adjustable heated and cooled front seats, Windsor leather-trimmed seat facings, removable luggage net, additional wood on the center console, and adaptive front lighting.

The new Autobiography package is available only for the V8 Supercharged model. It includes the highest-quality leather trim for the console side surfaces, door casings and the entire instrument panel. In addition, full semi-aniline leather seats have a softer feel. The new package also includes a 4-zone automatic climate control system and a rear-seat entertainment system, as well as multiple surfaces covered in wood trim.

Powertrain
The 2009 Land Rover Range Rover V8 HSE is powered by a 4.4-liter V-8 engine that generates 305 hp at 5750 rpm and 325 lb.-ft. of torque at 4000 rpm. In V8 Supercharged models, the engine is the 4.2-liter, supercharged V-8 engine that pumps out 400 hp at 5750 rpm and 420 lb.-ft. of torque at 3500 rpm. Power is transferred through a 6-speed automatic transmission with manumatic shifting. All Range Rovers have standard ABS with emergency brake assist, dynamic stability control, and the Terrain Response System (TRS). The TRS constantly monitors the terrain and adjusts accordingly to five settings: general, grass/gravel/snow, mud/ruts, sand and rock crawl. V8 Supercharged models also come equipped with Brembo front brakes for improved stopping power. EPA fuel-economy estimates for both V-8 engines are 12 mpg city/18 mpg highway.

Safety
The 2009 Land Rover Range Rover is loaded with safety features, including a rearview camera with parking assist; double-locked doors; ABS with emergency brake assist; dynamic stability control; Hill Descent Control; and adaptive front headlights. All Range Rover models have 8 air bags: front, head and side seat air bags for the driver and front passenger, and side and curtain air bags that cover all rows.

The 2009 Range Rover has not been rated by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) for crash protection or rollover resistance, nor has it been tested by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).

Technology
Advanced technology on the 2009 Land Rover Range Rover includes an Electronic Air Suspension System that features adjustable ride-height control. It comes with suspension air bags for automatic load leveling, allowing the vehicle to deliver a level ride height even when loaded with cargo, as well as providing off-road clearance as needed in the highest setting, or lowering the Range Rover to make it easier to exit and enter the vehicle when it is stopped. The suspension air bags are cross-linked so they can still articulate the axle over rocks or ruts. Four different heights are programmed into the electronic air suspension control. Three of these are driver-selectable with a console-mounted switch. For on-road driving, the suspension is set to standard height. The computer uses height sensors at each wheel to adjust the air pressure inside each air bag to keep the vehicle level. If vehicle speed is faster than 60 mph, the computer automatically lowers the vehicle for improved high-speed handling.
