Range Rover Autobiography Long Wheelbase Review
  • Remarkable rear seat comfort; supple ride; cabin refinement and quality; surprising agility; thunderous V8 engine with decent economy; road presence and design
  • Even at this level there are still expensive options; tacky woodgrain finish; huge turning circle; CarAdvice doesn't have one on its long-term fleet

FJ Summit 8: Ouray, Colorado
