Miles to the Gallon: 12 City / 18 Highway
Kendall Jenner is a fashion model, social media star, and reality TV personality. Jenner rose to fame through her attachment to the Jenner/Kardashian family. Initially appearing on Keeping Up with the Kardashians, it wasn’t long before Jenner was cultivating a following of her own. In the intervening years since her first televised appearance, Jenner has become one of the biggest social media and fashion stars in the world.
Kendall Jenner Loves Luxury
While Kendall Jenner is typically lauded as one of the more ‘regular’ members of the Jenner – Kardashian dynamic, you wouldn’t just run into her on the street. With a net worth featuring almost as many digits as her actual age, Jenner has grown up in the lap of luxury. While Jenner is most commonly associated with her fashion and beauty work on social media, she has grown into one of the biggest car collectors in the entire family. Try to think back to when you were 23-years-old. If you had $30 million dollars then, do you think you would splurge on a new car or two?
Kendall Jenner has a constantly growing car collection, which we will get into later, but her favorite vehicle seems to be her 2012 Range Rover. The Land Range Rover, more commonly shortened to the Range Rover, is a luxury SUV that has become quite popular in Hollywood. Developed by the Rover Company starting in 1951, there have been four generations of the legendary car. Kendall Jenner came across her $90,000 Range Rover back in 2012. The Range Rover was a gift that Kendall Jenner acquired for her 16th birthday. A few years later, Jenner would trade the car in for an upgraded black model.
Kendall’s luxurious Range Rover features dark black rims and completely blacked-out windows. When you have more than 116 million followers on Instagram, it can help to keep people from creeping through your car windows! Jenner’s Range Rover is part of the fourth generation of the iconic vehicle. The legendary luxury SUV features everything that a young starlet could ever want. Stock models for the 2012 Range Rover feature leather and wood cabins, a digital entertainment and environment control console, and windows that completely subdue outside noise. Driving through L.A.’s horrific traffic suddenly doesn’t sound so bad, does it? Other amazing features include a 14-point speaker system by Harman Kardon, satellite radio, and broad external visibility.
While much can be said for how the 2012 Range Rover looks, more focus should be on what happens beneath the hood. Kendall Jenner’s sturdy luxury SUV features a V8 engine that delivers blink-of-the-eye acceleration and a healthy top speed of 130 MPG. As far as fuel economy goes, the Range Rover performs well in comparison to other high-end SUVs. With 12 MPG in the city and 18 MPG on the highway, the 2012 Range Rover does just enough to keep Kendall from needing to stop at a gas station every fifteen minutes.
As far as 16th birthday party gifts go, we’ve got to say that Kendall Jenner ended up with a pretty good one!
The Rest of the Garage
Even though Kendall Jenner is head-over-heels in love with her Range Rover, that is far from the only car in her garage. After all, it makes sense to upgrade your vehicle after a couple of years, right? For Jenner, upgrading her Range Rover meant adding an entire fleet of luxury vehicles to her garage. As a certified car-crazy celebrity, Jenner has never been afraid of splurging on what she likes. Let’s take a brief walk through the rest of her garage.
For our first stop, we’ll take a glance at Kendall’s beautiful 1957 Corvette Stingray. This gorgeous classic convertible is hard to ignore when it comes rolling down the street. As a fan of classic cars, Jenner knew that she wanted a sleek, powder-blue drop-top vehicle for the paparazzi to get her good side. This car features a 283 horsepower, enlarged V8 engine. If you want to drive around a Stingray as pretty as Jenner’s, you are going to have to get in the garage yourself or have a professional mechanic to upgrade your used purchase.
Even though Kendall loves her old cars, she couldn’t avoid purchasing her own Ferrari Spider. Of course, it helps that Jenner purchased her Ferrari Spider at the same time as her sister. Talk about twinning, right? Kendall’s Spider features a matte silver coat with some serious muscle underneath the hood. Kendall’s Ferrari Spider features a 4.5 liter V8 engine, 398 pounds of torque, and a top speed pushing 210 MPH. If you want to drive like Kendall, you only have to put down a cool $280,900. Maybe we could all pitch in?
Kendall Jenner has been working as a professional model since the age of 14. Now one of the biggest stars on the planet, it looks like Jenner is going to be set to cash in on her fame for life. Nowadays, Jenner is working on expanding her brand into several new ventures including her own jewelry, nail polish, makeup, and clothing lines. Jenner has also become a prominent social media starlet who reportedly makes significant chunks of cash for each sponsored post. Talk about living the dream!
