Is the Land Rover Range Rover a Good SUV?

Yes, the Range Rover is a good luxury large SUV. Much of its appeal stems from its roomy cabin and comfortable seats, as well as class-leading off-road proficiency. This vehicle rides gently on pavement too, and it has a lineup of powerful powertrains, including a thrifty diesel. That said, the Land Rover has a history of below-average predicted reliability ratings, and its infotainment system can be frustrating to use.

Should I Buy the Land Rover Range Rover?

If you’re looking for a high-end cruiser capable of venturing off the pavement, this may be the right vehicle for you. However, Land Rover offers several refined vehicles ready for adventuring. If you’re willing to sacrifice some space, you might consider the Range Rover Sport, Range Rover Velar, or Land Rover Discovery. Not only are they all similar to their larger sibling, but they’re all more affordable too. The Range Rover Sport has an MSRP of $68,650, the Velar retails for $56,300, and the Discovery starts at $52,300.

Should I Buy a New or Used Land Rover Range Rover?

Unless you really want to buy new, there’s little reason to pick a 2020 Range Rover over a used model. The main change Land Rover made for 2020 was swapping the base supercharged V6 engine for a turbocharged inline-six. Otherwise, this Land Rover is largely unchanged.

The 2020 Rover belongs to a generation that launched for 2013. Since then, Land Rover has introduced periodic updates. The 2014 model gained a base supercharged V6 engine and a long-wheelbase body type. The 2016 Range Rover added a turbodiesel engine option.

For 2017, Land Rover outfitted its flagship SUV with a 10.2-inch standard touch screen, and the top-trim SV Autobiography Dynamic debuted. The 2018 model gained refreshed exterior and interior styling and a second touch screen. And for 2019, Land Rover added Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and a plug-in hybrid model.

Land Rover Range Rover Versus the Competition

Which Is Better: Land Rover Range Rover or Mercedes-Benz G-Class?

In a side-by-side comparison, the Mercedes-Benz G-Class comes out slightly ahead of the Range Rover. It’s one of the few vehicles in the class to rival the Range Rover’s off-roading dominance, and it boasts more standard tech features and nicer cabin materials. Keep in mind that the Mercedes is also one of the few competitors to exceed the Land Rover’s already exorbitant price. The base G-Class costs around $33,600 more than the base Range Rover.

Which Is Better: Land Rover Range Rover or Land Rover Range Rover Sport?

The main reason to choose the Range Rover Sport over the larger Rover is price. With a starting MSRP of $68,650, the base Sport costs around $22,250 less to buy. The trade-off is some passenger and cargo space, but you’ll get a similar list of standard equipment and a comparable base powertrain. Both SUVs have a range of robust powertrain offerings, including a supercharged V8, a turbodiesel, and a plug-in hybrid. Both vehicles shine off the road as well. Notably, unlike the big Range Rover, the Sport can be had with a third row of seats. Choosing between these two is a matter of preference and budget.

Range Rover Interior

How Many People Does the Range Rover Seat?

Most full-size luxury SUVs have three rows of seats, but not this one. The Range Rover seats up to five people in two rows. It comes with leather upholstery and heated and power-adjustable front seats.

Available upgrades include massaging front seats, ventilated front seats, added power adjustments, upgraded leather upholstery, a refrigerated center console, and a heated steering wheel. There is also a bounty of rear-seat amenities, such as heated, ventilated, massaging, power-adjusting, and power-reclining seats.

Whether you sit in the front or rear, you’ll be treated to generous amounts of head- and legroom and supportive, comfortable seats. Long-wheelbase models add 7.5 inches of rear-seat legroom, creating plenty of space for even the tallest riders.

Range Rover and Child Car Seats

There are two complete sets of LATCH connectors for the rear outboard seats.

Range Rover Interior Quality

The Range Rover’s cabin is full of premium materials and soft-touch surfaces, though many rivals have more stylish interiors.

Range Rover Cargo Space

Regardless of configuration, this Land Rover has less cargo room than its three-row competitors. Most models have 31.8 cubic feet of space behind the rear seats and a total of 68.6 cubic feet behind the first row. The long-wheelbase model offers up to 75.6 cubic feet of space with the rear seats folded. Plug-in hybrid models trail the pack, with 28.3 cubic feet behind the rear seats and a maximum of 65.1 cubic feet.

Range Rover Infotainment, Bluetooth, and Navigation

The standard Touch Pro Duo infotainment system consists of two 10-inch touch screens – one for entertainment and most vehicle settings and the other primarily for climate functions – as well as a navigation system, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration, Bluetooth, a Wi-Fi hot spot, a 13-speaker Meridian stereo, satellite radio, HD Radio, and USB ports.

A rear-seat entertainment system with twin 10-inch monitors is available.

The infotainment system draws mixed reviews. A few critics note that the two touch screens are easy to use, but others find the controls cumbersome, with sluggish response times and frustrating menu layouts.

Range Rover Performance

Range Rover Engine: Everyone Gets an Engine

This Land Rover offers a wide range of powertrains to choose from. Standard is a 3.0-liter inline-six engine rated at 355 horsepower and 365 pound-feet of torque. It’s a mild hybrid with a 48-volt battery. The HSE trim uses this same engine but squeezes out 395 horsepower and 405 pound-feet of torque. Both the base and HSE trims can be had with a 3.0-liter turbodiesel engine that makes 254 horsepower and 443 pound-feet of torque.

All three of these engines provide ample power for most driving scenarios, whether you’re putt-putting around the city or zipping around the freeway.

P525 HSE and Autobiography models use a 5.0-liter supercharged V8 engine with an output of 518 horsepower and 461 pound-feet of torque. Both models are available as a plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV). This powertrain features a 2.0-liter four cylinder engine and an electric motor that together produce 398 horsepower and 472 pound-feet of torque. The PHEV powertrain transitions smoothly between gas and electric power.

In the range-topping SVAutobiography Dynamic, the supercharged V8 engine makes 557 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque. The V8 engines are brawny enough to impress in just about every situation.

Regardless of engine, the only available transmission is an eight-speed automatic.

Range Rover Gas Mileage: Great for Roving

The base Range Rover gets an EPA-estimated 19 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway, which is fantastic for the class. The diesel model is even more fuel-efficient, getting up to 22 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway.

As of this writing, the EPA has not evaluated the plug-in hybrid model. Land Rover claims it has an all-electric range of 22 miles and can be charged in about 14 hours with a standard outlet, but Level 2 charging reduces that time to roughly 2 hours and 45 minutes.

Range Rover Ride and Handling: Poised and Smooth

This Land Rover delivers a cushioned ride on most roads, and it tackles corners and curves with composure and minimal body lean. Unlike other bulky SUVs, it is also relatively easy to maneuver.

Range Rover Off-Road Performance

This vehicle proves itself an adept off-roader. It comes standard with four-wheel drive and a Terrain Response system that helps it excel on sand or dirt and rocky or snowy trails. Few other SUVs can match its off-road capability.

Range Rover Towing Capacity

When properly equipped, the Range Rover can tow up to 7,716 pounds.

Which Land Rover Range Rover Model Is Right for Me?

First, you'll need to choose between the standard wheelbase (SWB) or long-wheelbase (LWB) model, the latter of which is only available in a couple trim levels. Next choose from several engine options, including a turbocharged diesel, an inline-six, a V8, and a plug-in hybrid powertrain. Finally, there are four main trim levels: Base, HSE, Autobiography, and SVAutobiography Dynamic.

Note that not every trim is available in every body style or with every engine.

There are also some standard driver aids, such as front and rear parking sensors, a rearview camera, lane departure warning, low-speed forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, and rain-sensing windshield wipers.

A 254-horsepower diesel engine is available for $800. Other options include heated rear seats for $510, a heated steering wheel for $255, an upgraded 19-speaker stereo for $1,885, and several packages that add safety features.

Land Rover Range Rover HSE

The Range Rover HSE starts at $95,950 and comes with a plug-in hybrid powertrain: a turbocharged 2.0-liter engine and an electric motor that produce a combined 398 horsepower. For $96,150, you get a gas-only 395-horsepower inline-six engine. Regardless of setup, the HSE also picks up perforated leather seats, 20-way power-adjustable front seats, power-reclining rear seats, heated rear seats, and the contents of the Drive pack and Park Pro pack, minus the park assist system.

Most of the same packages are available, though pricing differs slightly. You can also get a rear-seat entertainment system with two 10-inch screens for $2,245 and quad-zone automatic climate control for $410. Ventilated front seats are available for $305, or you can get ventilation in both rows for $610. Alternatively, you can get ventilated front and back seats plus 22-way power-adjustable massaging front seats for $2,090.

The diesel engine remains available.

The P525 HSE variant comes with a supercharged 518-horsepower V8 engine. It starts at $105,950 and comes similarly equipped to the HSE. Most of the same options are available too, though you can add a rear locking differential for $1,120.

The long-wheelbase P525 HSE has an MSRP of $109,950.

Land Rover Range Rover Autobiography

The Autobiography trim lets you choose between the supercharged V8 ($143,800) and the plug-in hybrid ($130,300). It also gains many of the features that were optional in earlier trims, including Terrain Response 2, an active locking rear differential, quad-zone automatic climate control, adaptive cruise control, a head-up display, a park assist system, semi-aniline leather upholstery, and heated, ventilated, and massaging front seats.

The rear-seat entertainment system remains available. Massaging rear seats (and a few other seating options) are available for $2,650.

The LWB Autobiography only comes with the V8 engine and has an MSRP of $150,300.

Land Rover Range Rover SV Autobiography Dynamic

Retailing for $178,500, the SV Autobiography Dynamic picks up an even stronger supercharged V8 that makes 557 horsepower. It comes with its own unique styling elements and just about every feature you can get in this Land Rover, except for the rear-seat entertainment system.

The long-wheelbase SVAutobiography Dynamic starts at $209,500.

The Final Call

The Land Rover Range Rover stands out for its ability to venture off road in style and comfort. Whether in the front or rear, you'll enjoy plenty of room and comfortable seats. There’s also several robust powertrains to choose from. However, the Range Rover is one of the priciest luxury large SUVs, and many rivals have larger cargo holds and more user-friendly infotainment systems.

Don’t just take our word for it. Check out comments from some of the reviews that drive our rankings and analysis.

  • "Noted for its luxurious appointments and impressive off-road ability, the 2020 Land Rover Range Rover luxury SUV is the pinnacle of its breed. Offered in both standard and long-wheelbase models, the 2020 Range Rover isn’t as large as a Cadillac Escalade, and it only seats five, even in LWB form. But what the Range Rover lacks in overall hauling ability it more than makes up for in status, styling and speed." -- Kelley Blue Book
  • "From its easily recognizable exterior to its simply sumptuous interior, the 2019 Land Rover Range Rover remains the pinnacle of luxury SUVs. Offering power, performance and luxury in a vehicle more off-road capable than anything else in its class, the Range Rover can take you places a Cadillac Escalade, Lincoln Navigator or Audi Q7 wouldn't dare tread. And, unlike some makes, the Range Rover isn't some dressed-up version of a lesser SUV. It is unique from the ground up. Powerful, comfortable and surprisingly agile for its size, the Land Rover Range Rover is the ultimate expression of ruggedness and comfort wrapped in a very seductive shell." -- Autotrader (2019)
  • "It's not an exaggeration to say that the 2019 Land Rover Range Rover is one of the most versatile vehicles on sale today. With standard four-wheel drive, configurable traction settings and an air suspension, the Range Rover is capable of tackling muddy trails and wading through water nearly 3 feet deep. Yet it's equally able to tackle the worst of the urban jungle thanks to its cosseting cabin and high-end luxury features. It's similar to the Range Rover Sport, but the bigger Range Rover offers increased passenger room, a nicer interior, and a road presence that the Sport just can't match." -- Edmunds (2019)
