Hi Shahid,

Would love to see it perform with us in NIOC ;o))

Then we will come to know how capable machine it is and what offroading they are talking about

..but to tell you the truth when this Rangie is retired the only vehicle that will take its place will be another Range Rover.

You talk my language. The Range Rover is my firm favourite when it comes to SUVs. Only a Range Rover can be a Range Rover. If only I had the moolah...

I am sort of confused....!

Vehicles which are exteremly capable world over (read Land rovers, TLC amazon's et al),...would not work at the terrain we do at NIOC. Reason only SWB high GC vehicle can come away with little damage. Case in point the two Grand Vitara's which are licking their wounds fresh from yesterdays OTR.

Does this make them any less capable,..or the losely coined term Soft roaders. I dont think so...but I am truely confused now!

Some call the TLC Amazon the ultimate off-roader but the ultimate offroader would be impaled at the simplest of terrain in the aravalies,.. where the humble Cj3b & MM550 hop over.

So is it about versatility even then apart from dunes (where these V8 monsters rule) the MM's come away from all other off-roading terrain thrown at them.
