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.

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.

OK, it's about adolescents, but does The Incredibly True Adventure of Two Girls in Love have to be, like, so adolescent? Writer-director Maria Maggenti's nice-looking first feature is a caricaturish tale of two high school seniors' first lesbian experience. Randy Dean (Laurel Hollomon), a tomboy goof-off who lives with her aunt and her aunt's lover ("just your normal, typical lesbo household") and works after school at a filling station, meets Evie Roy (Nicole Parker), a straight-A student who wears a Rolex, drives a Range Rover, and is breaking up with her boyfriend.

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.

The stolen car yielded crucial clues: a palm print on the steering wheel, a fingerprint on the rear window, a snapshot on a cell phone. Thanks to those clues, a young West Philadelphia father was in a suburban jail Thursday night, held on $1 million bail in the hit-and-run crash that killed one Villanova University student and critically injured another. Police were trying to determine whether a second person was involved in the crash shortly after midnight Wednesday in Bryn Mawr.

HE ENTERED the courtroom as wide-eyed as a preschooler and dressed like one, in a blue Cookie Monster hoodie.

Delaware County Magisterial District Judge Elisa Lacianca set bail at $1 million.

Bail was set at $1 million cash for a 21-year-old West Philadelphia man facing multiple charges, including vehicle theft and homicide, in the Bryn Mawr crash that took the life of one Villanova student and left another in critical condition. Kenneth Woods, 21, who was arrested at 11:05 p.m. Wednesday without incident at his home in the 4000 block of Aspen Street, professed his innocence during and after a preliminary hearing in district court. "I have no clue what's happening," he said after being advised of his rights in court.
