New Range Rover shows off its pulling power

The Land Rover team recently took it upon themselves to tow the Airstream from the English Lake District to the top of the Atlas Mountains in Morocco before heading back to the UK.

The newly-launched Airstream 684 Series 2 aluminium travel trailer was easily attached to the Range Rover’s electrically-deployable tow bar, with the luxury SUV having no problem pulling the trailer thanks to its impressive 339PS SDV8 engine.

The ‘silver bullet’ was on the road often for more than 12 hours a day, and traversed an enormous variety of different terrains including the dangerous hairpin bends of the High Atlas.

The new Range Rover towed the 2,399 kg Airstream 3,676 miles in as little as 11 days. The car was also subject to a variety of extreme weather conditions, with the Range Rover coping with powerful side winds and more.

Ben Samuelson, whose firm Samuelson Wylie Associates planned and executed the trip, was deeply impressed by the new car: “The new Range Rover’s towing ability is nothing short of stunning. It pulled the two and a half tonne Airstream like it simply wasn’t there.”

The team was also impressed with the extraordinary refinement found throughout the car. The new Range Rover tackled tough mountain terrain with little effort, despite its load consisting of more than tonnes.

“With 700 NM of torque from that mighty V8 diesel at our disposal, there wasn’t an incline that slowed us down at all,” adds Ben.

The new Range Rover is available to order now with prices starting from £71,295.
