Ford Range Rover

Looks like Ford stole something from Rover before they let it go. Is this just me or does this have some RR qualities in the body?

Is it sealing if you own it when you copy it? But it does sure look like a Land Rover.

I've seen that car in person a few times, and it never reminded me of a rover. It is really large, kind of like a Buick Roadmaster from the early 80's. Butt ugly car in my opinion.

your right, not steeling at all, hell they invested enough. I just thought it was funny that BMW came out with some "land rover features" on their 4wd before they dropped them, now it seems like Ford did the same thing. I would probably do the same if I was ceo of Ford. Just looked very roverish to me. Another good point, I have never seen this in person, but from the pic, it just got me wondering.

I fully agree.
