Land Rover introduced the Range Rover in 1970, and it created the luxury SUV segment that has become so popular since then. The carbureted 3.5-liter wasn’t a powerhouse with just 132 horsepower, but the cabin was incredibly plush by the standards of SUVs at the time. Initially, Land Rover prioritized the Range Rover’s stye by over only offering it as a three-door with large windows and skinny pillars. The five-door didn’t arrive until 1981, but some markets continued to receive the three-door variant until the 1990s.
