The Range Rover, a $31,000, four-wheel-drive station wagon built in England and owned by people like the queen of England and the prince of Wales, will go on sale to American colonists this week. The luxurious 4x4, which will beat out the Jeep Grand Wagoneer for most expensive sport utility vehicle in the U.S. market, will officially debut tomorrow in 36 dealer showrooms around the country. To drum up interest in the car, which is the rich relative of the Land Rover, star of countless safari movies, the folks at Range Rover of North America invited auto writers to a hands-on preview last week at a secluded retreat near posh Tuxedo, N.Y., about 50 miles north of New York City.

The completely redesigned 2013 Range Rover is, predictably enough, the best one ever. As such, it retains its off-road primacy among luxury SUVs. When it comes to slogging through mud and sand, fording streams and tap dancing up rocky inclines, the Range Rover is the upmarket king of the hill. I know, I know. Who's going to go mudding and fording and bouncing off rocks in vehicles with base prices between $83,545 and $130,995? But thanks to the off-road driving programs afforded Range Rover customers, the number of owners taking their vehicles on mud-and-crud expeditions is doubtlessly higher than the luxury SUV general population.

I've discovered that Land Rover's Discovery has a lot in common with my Discovery. Like my 16-foot-9-inch Old Towne canoe, the newly arrived Land Rover compact sport utility is roomy, comfortable, tough, functional and intended to take me to out-of-the-way places. Like the Burger King at the top of Mount Everest, for example. The Discovery debuted in Europe back in 1989, but arrived here only a few weeks ago, after undergoing some revisions designed to make it more attractive to U.S. customers.

Toucans and parrots screeched. Jungle moss dangled from gleaming all- terrain vehicles. People who usually sell $30,000-to-$55,000 adventure-mobiles shuffled about in suede hiking boots and khaki safari duds as they snapped photos of patrons munching cheese cubes and fruit balls. In one corner of the sparkling, glass-enclosed Great Britains showroom at York and Terwood Roads last week, amid the Range Rovers and Jaguars, a clown twisted balloons into silly hats and other shapes.

POLICE IN Collingdale, Delaware County have identified a person of interest in what they believe was an intentional hit-and-run that left a borough man seriously injured. Investigators want to talk to Conroy Williams, the owner of a black Range Rover that allegedly mowed down Joel Witherspoon, 36, early Saturday morning outside his home on Bedford Avenue. "It would behoove him to come and talk to us," Collingdale Police Chief Robert Adams said of Williams, of Philadelphia. Adams said a detective interviewed Witherspoon yesterday at Crozer-Chester Medical Center and Witherspoon provided Williams' name.

The cover of the sales brochure for the new, improved Range Rover is in the form of a signed photograph by Lord Litchfield, the jet set's official cameraman. It depicts two inevitably tweedy English gentlemen in a grassy pasture overlooking the manor house. They are there with their hunting dogs and a green Range Rover, which is identified only by Litchfield's notation in the white margin beneath the picture. The folks at Range Rover of North America know, of course, that there are a limited number of English gentlemen in this country.

THEY SAID they had evidence aplenty, with a cell phone, a palm print and the best kind of witness - a cop - picking the bad guy out of a photo lineup. But yesterday, one day after charging a West Philadelphia man with murder in the wreck that killed a Villanova student this week, Haverford Township police backpedaled big-time. They arrested the wrong man, they said, before quickly announcing they now had the correct suspect in custody. And Donnie Sayers made it easy for them: He called Haverford detectives Thursday night and confessed that he had driven the stolen 2008 Range Rover that plowed into Daniel Giletta's sedan at more than 100 mph just after midnight Wednesday, police said.

A JURY yesterday ruled against Philly rapper Meek Mill in his civil-rights lawsuit against the city, a cop and a former cop over a 2012 traffic stop. The mostly white panel of four men and four women found that Officer Alvin Outlaw and then-Officer Andre Boyer did not unlawfully stop, detain and arrest Mill on the night of Oct. 31, 2012. Mill, 26, whose real name is Robert Williams, showed no reaction when the jury forewoman announced the verdicts after about two hours of deliberation.

PHILLY RAPPER Meek Mill's civil lawsuit against the city, a cop and a former cop will be heard by a federal jury next week in a case that mixes celebrity, alleged bad-cop behavior and the possible smell of pot. Mill, 26, of North Philly, is slated to testify. His high-profile lead attorney, Dennis Cogan, is expected to show that one defendant, fired police Officer Andre Boyer, had numerous civilian complaints against him. In addition to Boyer, the city and police Officer Alvin Outlaw are defendants in the case.

It's something of a hard sell to suggest that an automobile that starts at $62,600 is a good value. But in the thin fiscal air where the Range Rover respirates, the remarkable, all-new 2014 Range Rover Sport is a deal at that price. Look at it this way: The Sport, a shorter, sportier version of the somewhat more grandly appointed Range Rover flagship, is more than $20,000 cheaper in base form than its big brother. Yet it shares the big guy's architecture and engine choices, as well as its impeccable road manners and exceptional off-road capability.

Wrongly accused of murder, he'd just gotten sprung from jail. He hadn't eaten for nearly two days, as anxiety sapped his appetite. But when Kenny Woods walked free from the Delaware County jail yesterday afternoon, he didn't rush home to rest or run around reveling in his freedom. He stopped to get his girlfriend a birthday cake. "I love my family," he said simply, as his girlfriend, Victoria Walton, happily displayed the vanilla-cream cake Woods bought on his way home from prison.
