I would see them around but never knew much about their capabilities until a friend bought one from Washington State and drove is back to New York. Thats when I found out cruising speed was only about 45-50 mph, flat out at 55.
Then again he and his kids rode their motorcycles up to Prudhoe Bay Alaska and down to Panama through Mexico, so this was no big deal.

while top speed was that.. due to gearing..

we wheeled up power lines. my 78 k20 chevy bounced around like a milkshake and my bros 79 k30 was no better.
we watched our cousin go up that rocky side shuffling hill and he was like on a cushion... wow.. our kidneys hurt and he was falling asleep

Now the Preferred SUV of Affluent Soccer Moms

"... whose owners will probably never stray too far from day-school lines or fashion-boutique parking lots."

Taking the kids to soccer practice in the (now ex) wife's 4WD Ford explorer. Having past their field on the facilities 1 lane road I made a K-turn. The wife absolutely freaked out when the first tire touched grass.

Last Range Rover advertisement I recall had the SUV driving down down the side of a mountain at high speed ...Maaaketing.

I suspect they're are also favored by Rover service departments. :)
