Large, powerful engine; luxury; off-road capability
The LR4 delivers the upscale interior and 4-wheel-drive capability upon which Land Rover has built its reputation over the decades. The big V8 engine is potent and efficient, the interior is luxuriously appointed with goodies like leather seats and dual-zone climate control and the Terrain Response system and hill descent control make the LR4 more than capable of taking on the toughest trails. In other words, the LR4 is pure Land Rover and sets the bar high for luxury off-road competitors from Europe and Japan.
