An Extended Leather Package covers the dashboard, doors, armrests, and grab handles with premium leather. There are five new exterior paint colors...more

Overview

We enjoy the Land Rover LR4 even though it’s several years old. The 5.0-liter V-8 engine still pumps out a healthy 375 hp and 375 lb-ft of torque, but it’s no surprise to find out that it manages only 17 mpg on the highway. However, off-highway driving is where the LR4 really proves its worth, thanks to an adjustable air suspension and the complex Terrain Response system. Land Rovers are supposed to be able to ford rivers and climb mountains yet still look classy enough to park in front of a castle, and the LR4 certainly delivers the goods. Although no one would describe the LR4 as inexpensive, it costs significantly less than a Range Rover and almost mimics the Range Rover’s regal British exterior styling, the same base V-8 engine, and sophisticated front and rear air suspensions. Like many mid-size SUVs, the LR4 is offered with an optional third row that increases seating capacity to seven, but we find the third row best suited for small children. Although the Land Rover LR4 is a big, heavy vehicle, it is easier to maneuver around town than are several of its competitors, thanks to a low beltline, slim A-pillars, and a large rear glass area—all of which enhance outward visibility.
