great find!!! Was it just me or did it look like the Commander made it through easier than the Range Rover? I love to see the Commander in action.

I'm sure mine wouldn't do that since I lose power steering driving through rainwater, or going through the carwash. Of course dealer says "can not duplicate".

Great Vid! From what I can tell the XK crossed the river about 25 seconds faster than the RR.

The Range Rover looked like it was on 22"s. I think I would have gone slow with those shoes on too.

That yellow (Land Cruiser?) made it through pretty quick as well. He didn't look like he was afraid to bounce around a little.

That was a sweet video from my home country. It's nice to see that filipinos can appreciate 4X4 vehicles, especially the commander. I am gonna email or call my relatives in the Philippines as soon I write this to tell them I got a commander too. Sweet!!! I think the commander did cross the river faster than the range rover. I am suprised that the owner even put it through the test like that. But I guess if you pay for a $60,000+ dollar 4X4 SUV, you would hope that you could at least do that kind of stuff. Nice video.

Crossing a river like that could end well or really,really bad.
I can't believe that RR and that tire/wheel combo. Even though it made it I sure wouldn't be out there on street tires.

Those look like stock 06 Range Rover wheels to me. So unless 22's are stock...

I don't know why it happens. But it is very disappointing that a "trail rated" vehicle can't even go through the car wash. Seems like a loose belt or something, but it's tight and in good shape.
