Overview

All Range Rovers were designated "HSE" except the special edition Westminster LE introduced this model year. The optional heated accessory package was carried over from 2003, and a new Luxury Interior Package option was introduced (See "Options" below), which added a 14-way adjustable driver's seat and more leather trim.   

The MSRP was increased to $71,585, $385 over the 2003 model plus $665 for destination. The price included Roadside Assistance and complimentary scheduled maintenance during the 4-year/50,000 miles warranty period. In mid-2004, an even more generous "VIP package" was added to UK Range Rovers providing five years or 75,000 miles of free maintenance and roadside assistance. .

Special Editions

In the US market, the limited "Westminster" edition was introduced. It cost approx $84,000 (including destination charges) and was the first 2004 Range Rover shown to the public (at the NY Auto Show).  Land Rover produced 300 of the vehicles.

The 2004 Range Rover Westminsters all have Java Black exterior paint.  The model has the same black "grand ebony" (jet "piano" black -- "similar to that seen on the finest grand pianos") wood that was first seen on the 2002 Westminster Edition of the previous P38 Range Rover. Jet Black leather interiors with more leather covered surfaces, deep cut pile carpeting, and the deep pile leather Contour seats from last year's Oxford Edition (see official press photo at right). The only features in the interior not in Jet Black were the ivory headliner and grab handles.

The Westminster also introduced Rain Sensor windshield wipers that activate automatically when water is detected, and an integrated cargo area luggage net. They all had the seven spoke 20" Alloy Wheels (vs. the standard six spoke 19" wheels).  The Westminster has a silver rectangle "Westminster" badge on the back where other models had the "HSE" logo.

Autobiography Edition
The Autobiography Edition was not sold in the U.S. but went on sale in the UK on Saturday November 8, 2003.  The 2004 Autobiography was based on the Range Rover V8 Vogue (similar to the NAS HSE model).  The Autobiography Edition comes with the same black "grand ebony" (jet "piano" black) wood as the NAS Westminster Edition (above) and black Jet leather interior, 20 inch alloy wheels and a Logic 7 sound system with 14 speakers and sub-woofer, especially tuned to match the Range Rover's internal acoustic characteristics.  Available in either Java Black or Zambesi Silver, the Range Rover Autobiography Edition was priced from £65,995, rising to £69,995 for the Autobiography Edition DVD, which comes with twin eight-inch DVD screens mounted in the rear of the front seats, though when parked, an in-dash screen may also be activated, giving three-screen viewing. Land Rover reported that one hundred and twenty five (125) of the 2004 Autobiography Editions were sold.
