Coming soon: 2020 Range Rover Fifty Limited Edition

When Land Rover first introduced the Range Rover in 1970, most people had no idea what a  luxury SUV was. With time, the automaker proved its craftsmanship, and the Ranger Rover has became an icon and a firm South African favourite. And, this icon has just completed its 50 years of existence. To celebrate this feat, Land Rover has developed a limited-run special edition, the 2020 Range Rover Fifty. Only 1970 units will be built, commemorating the year it was launched in.  

The 2020 Range Rover Fifty is built on the classy and luxurious Autobiography trim level in both standard and long-wheelbase layouts. The model has two distinct 22-inch wheel designs in addition to a ‘Fifty’ script lettering made personally by Land Rover’s Chief Creative Officer, Gerry McGovern OBE. You can find this emblem on the exterior of the SUV and at most parts inside, including headrests, dashboard, illuminated doorsills, and on the centre console, which numbers every SUV as "1 of 1970”.

The 2020 Range Rover Fifty gives you four standard colour choices: Carpathian Grey, Rosello Red, Aruba, and Santorini Black. However, if you really want to stand out in the crowd, we suggest you opt for limited hue options offered by the Land Rover Special Vehicle Operations (SVO). These SVO Range Rover Fifty SUVs come in Tuscan Blue, Bahama Gold, or Davos White, copied from the colour palette of the earliest Range Rovers. These will be available in limited numbers.

In North America, the 2020 Range Rover Fifty will give buyers just one engine option, i.e., the Land Rover’s supercharged 5.0L V-8 generating 368kW and 625 Nm of torque. The South African market will be getting a range of powertrains: Expect diesel, petrol, and even the P400e plug-in hybrid.

The 4.4L SD8 Diesel is rated at 250kW and 780 Nm of torque. The P400e is powered by a 2.0L Petrol engine assisted by an electric motor to generate 297kW. All the mills including the 5.0L V8 mate to an 8-Speed Automatic Transmission.

Although interested customers in South Africa can now order the Range Rover Fifty, the pricing options are not yet revealed. Since it’s based on the Range Rover Autobiography, which starts from R2,764,300 here, expect a significant premium over the standard model.

The sophisticated Autobiography is already a very capable SUV boasting Pixel LED headlights with signature DRL, four-zone climate control, configurable ambient interior lighting, perforated Semi-Aniline leather seats, 24-way heated and cooled, massage front seats with executive-class rear seats, heated leather steering wheel, InControl Connect Pro pack, MeridianTM surround sound system and so much more. It looks like the 2020 Range Rover 50 notches up its luxuriousness, even more, to make it special. This is one of the most exciting launches this year!
