|2001 was the
penultimate year of the Range Rover P38/4.6 model. With the obvious need to
upgrade the vehicle to remain competitive, the anaemic 4.0L engine was
dropped and only the 4.6 was offered.
4.6 HSE Edition: Base price was $68,000 Standard wheels were the ten spoke 18' "Hurricane" alloys. The JAMES navigation system was now standard on the HSE (it was optional on the 2000 HSE). It had a more powerful 460-watt Alpine stereo (vs. the 300-watt Alpine standard in the 4.6 SE). The HSE had only had two options, a leather and wood steering wheel for $400 and a lightstone interior with color keyed piping on seats and carpet for $750. The color of the leather parking brake boots cubby box lids and steering wheels matched the color of the seats this year (the leather was always black in past years).
