The 2008 Land Rover LR3, available in SE and HSE trims, is a luxury SUV featuring seating capacity for up to seven and a freshened design this model year. Power for the LR3 comes from a 4.4-liter gas-powered V8 that generates a solid 300 horses and 315 lbs.-ft of torque. Safety features include front and side-head airbags, ABS brakes, high-density discharge headlights, child safety rear door locks, park assist and traction control. Comfort and convenience features include dual zone climate control, full power accessories, power mirrors, navigation, and a trip computer.Read more Read less
For 2008, the V6 engine is no longer available in the U.S. market, leaving only V8-powered Land Rover LR3 SE and HSE models. Seven-passenger seating is also now standard across the model line. A power passenger seat is a new standard feature, and the HSE model gets a power-adjustable steering wheel with memory function. New stitching is part of the premium leather upholstery. There's also a new walnut wood trim inside the HSE, along with a black lacquer finish available at no extra charge.
Off-road ability; seating space and comfort; available technology and luxury features.
The LR3 is stands out in its class of premium sport utility vehicles with a good mix of tough off-road ability, interior comfort, and a good on-road ride. The Terrain Response allows even novices to get through tough off-road situations. Inside, it offers available appointments--such as second-row heated seats, a heated windshield, and adaptive lighting headlamps--that aren't widely available.
