The Land Rover LR4 takes off as a new vehicle, replacing last years LR3. This mid-size luxury SUV is powered by a 4.4L V8 which produces 375 hp and 375 lb-ft of torque. The 4WD system is linked to the engine and a six-speed automatic transmission. The LR4 offers plenty of comfort and luxury amenities on the inside but it is still a capable off-roader, carrying on the Land Rover tradition.Read more Read less
The all-new LR4 is Land Rover's replacement for the outgoing LR3. The name doesn't mean it's any bigger than the previous SUV from Land Rover -- as a matter of fact, it's a new vehicle, built on the same platform as the LR3, but with 1300 new parts. The LR4 is the fourth generation of Land Rover's mid-sized SUV, with a new direct-injected 5-liter V8 and a much cleaner center console. Exterior styling got a major freshening, with LED tail lights, a 2-bar grille and improved aerodynamics.
Large, powerful engine; luxury; off-road capability
The LR4 delivers the upscale interior and 4-wheel drive capability Land Rover has built its reputation on over the decades. Though the engine of this model is a half-liter larger than the one in the model it replaces, it has the same gas mileage as the smaller unit in the LR3. Though the interior has luxury appointments like leather seats and dual-zone climate control, the Terrain Response system and hill descent control make the LR4 more than capable of taking on the toughest trails.
