I have little doubt that anyone who can afford this vehicle can also afford to fill it up at $5 per gallon, but one wonders how many Range Rover owners will feel sheepish continuing to use their vehicles as suburban errand runners. If you can get past the potential for social ostracization, though, the Range Rover is still an incredibly appealing vehicle. What I like best about it is its low cowl, with fantastic views out the front and side windows. You sit up on a perch in the Range Rover, rather than sunk down into it. And in an age when so many vehicles are designed like bank vaults, with high sides and narrow windows, I rather enjoy sitting on the Range Rover throne for all to see.
