2014 Land Rover LR4 Overview

Is the 2014 Land Rover LR a Good Used SUV?

Despite its off-road capabilities, the 2014 Land Rover LR4 is not a particularly good SUV. Although it has a powerful supercharged V6, its fuel economy is poor. Also, its reliability is well below the segment’s average. With the standard LR4’s terrain response system, it can handle most off-road challenges. Otherwise, for day-to-day use, there are much better SUVs in the class.

Used 2014 Land Rover LR4 Performance and Interior

The LR4 has a standard supercharged 340-horsepower V6, which is mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. The LR4 is a heavy, tall SUV. However, its engine provides good acceleration. According to the EPA, the LR4 gets 15 mpg in the city and 19 mpg on the highway. These are low numbers for the luxury midsize SUV class.

On paved straightaways, the LR4 has a compliant ride. Still, off-roading is a better fit for the LR4 than tackling twisty, paved roads. The LR4 can tackle almost any terrain. Its standard Terrain Response system allows drivers to select one of four settings, depending on conditions. A fifth mode, rock crawl, is available on LR4s equipped with the Heavy Duty package.

The 2014 Land Rover LR4 seats five. An available third row increases seating to seven, but it’s only suitable for smaller children. The first two rows have a comfortable amount of space. The outward seats in the second row each have a complete LATCH connection for securing child seats.

Standard features in the 2014 Land Rover LR4 include push-button start, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, automatic climate control, Bluetooth, two USB ports, and a standard 380-watt Meridian sound system. The LR4’s gauges can be hard to read, and the touch-screen display often requires numerous steps to carry out basic functions. The LR4’s available surround-view camera system comes in handy – especially while off-roading – because it shows hazards on all sides.

Should I Consider Another Used LR4?

The 2014 Land Rover LR4 is part of the SUV’s only generation, which spanned the 2010 through 2016 model years. Though 2012 and 2013 models have a lower price, you’ll miss out on noteworthy updates. Changes for 2014 include a more fuel-efficient V8 engine, a standard rearview camera, and revamped front-end styling.

Which Used Land Rover LR4 Is Right for Me?

The 2014 LR4 has three trim levels: base, HSE, and HSE LUX. Each trim has distinctive 19-inch alloy wheels. The base model has halogen headlights, an air suspension, a split tailgate, a terrain response system, and push-button start. The HSE adds Xenon headlights with LED daytime running lights, heated outside mirrors, rear climate control, and third-row seating. The HSE LUX has upgraded leather, heated front and rear seats, a power-tilting steering wheel, interior mood lighting, a heated windshield, a chilled center cubby, and a 17-speaker stereo system. The base LR4 offers the best combination of value and price, and it has the off-road features Land Rover shoppers look for.

Considering the LR4’s below-average reliability, you might want to consider a certified pre-owned model. Land Rover extends its original new-car warranty to seven years or 100,000 miles for certified pre-owned vehicles. Every CPO Land Rover must pass a 165-point inspection. Additional benefits like towing and roadside assistance may be available, so read the Land Rover warranty page carefully.

2014 Land Rover LR4 and Other SUVs to Consider

Which Is Better: 2014 Land Rover LR4 or 2014 BMW X5?

Unlike the LR4, the 2014 BMW X5 has athletic on-road handling. However, the BMW can’t match the Land Rover’s off-road capabilities. Inside, the X5 has a user-friendly infotainment system, and its gauges are more legible. While the X5’s reliability is just average, it bests the LR4’s subpar rating. Overall, the X5 is the better SUV, especially if you seldom take your adventures off-road.

Which Is Better: 2014 Land Rover LR4 or 2014 Acura MDX?

The 2014 Acura MDX has composed on-road handling and good fuel economy – two traits the LR4 lacks. Both models have nice interiors. In regards to safety, the MDX has almost-perfect crash test ratings, a standard multi-view rear camera, and available adaptive cruise control. While the MDX has a lower reliability rating, we still recommend it over the LR4. However, you’ll want to invest in a certified pre-owned model, which comes with a good warranty.
