As the midsize SUV in the Land Rover lineup, the LR4 delivers the brand’s trademark luxury and ability in a family-friendly package. With boxy lines that maximize interior space, the LR4 can seat seven, swallow a mountain of vacation gear, and then take you virtually anywhere.
What's New for 2014
The LR4 looks fresher for 2014 thanks to a new grille, front bumper and headlights. All models get wade-sensing technology to assist in fording streams. A single-speed transfer case (without low range) is now available for buyers who don’t need heavy-duty off-road capability. Most significant, last year’s V8 engine has been replaced by a supercharged 3-liter V6.
Although it doesn’t look much different than before, the LR4 is more competitive than ever now that its only major shortcoming—fuel efficiency—has been erased by the new V6.
Choosing Your Land Rover LR4
The new V6 serves as the sole engine. At 340 horsepower, the V6 is 35 horsepower shy of the old V8, but promises 20 mpg in combined driving—a substantial improvement. As before, the LR4 comes standard with full-time four-wheel drive, hill descent control, and Land Rover’s Terrain Response System, which optimizes performance for five driver-selected road conditions. The leather cabin seats five, or seven with the optional third row.
Even an entry-level LR4 comes with premium features as standard:
HSE: Adds hard-drive navigation, voice controls, seven-spoke wheels, keyless access and starting, power-folding mirrors, protector-beam headlights with high-pressure washers, parking sensors, and a front DVD display screen.
HSE LUX: The ultimate LR4 piles on exclusive features like premium Windsor leather, a refrigerated compartment, a 17-speaker Meridian audio system with subwoofer, a driver memory package and interior mood lighting.
It would be hard to feel cheated by the lavishly equipped base LR4. If your budget allows, though, there's nothing wrong with paying extra for the HSE or HSE LUX—the latter costs $60,795, which is still class-competitive for a fully-loaded SUV with Land Rover's serious off-road credentials.
