2013 Land Rover Range Rover Overview

Is the 2013 Land Rover Range Rover a Good Used SUV?

The 2013 Land Rover Range Rover is a 2-row SUV ideal for people who want creature comforts when driving off road. Its posh cabin features roomy, comfortable seats and a bevy of leather and soft-touch materials. Two beefy engines move the Range Rover with ease. Cornering is composed, and off-road capabilities are outstanding. Still, the Range Rover is a gas guzzler. It also has a poor reliability rating and little cargo space for large families. If you plan to do more than off-road driving, there are much better luxury large SUVs available.

Used 2013 Land Rover Range Rover Performance and Interior

The full-time four-wheel-drive 2013 Land Rover Range Rover comes with a potent 375-horsepower V8 engine that produces near-instant acceleration and 375 pound-feet of torque. Supercharged and Autobiography models are powered by a brawnier supercharged V8 engine that produces 510 horsepower and 461 pound-feet of torque. An eight-speed automatic transmission is standard. These brawny engines take a toll on fuel economy. The base model gets up to 14 mpg in the city and 20 mpg on the highway, which is on the low end of class fuel economy estimates.

The 2013 Land Rover features exceptional handling capabilities, both on and off the pavement. It’s considerably lighter than previous models, which helps it deliver sharp driving dynamics on the pavement and excellent agility around corners. The 2013 Land Rover Range Rover can tackle harsh terrain and steep hills with ease. It also comes with Land Rover’s Terrain Response system, which allows you to select from several drive modes to maximize traction on the given terrain. The available Terrain Response 2 system adjusts these drive modes automatically based on driving conditions.

The five-seat 2013 Range Rover’s cabin outshines its large luxury SUV rivals with elegant styling and high-end materials. The leather-upholstered seats and well-cushioned headrests are comfortable in both rows. There are two complete sets of LATCH child-seat connectors in the rear outboard seats and a tether-only connection in the middle seat. Most vehicles in this class have three rows, so it’s understandable that the Range Rover has one of the smallest cargo capacities in the class (71.7 cubic feet).

The 2013 Range Rover comes with tri-zone climate control, Bluetooth, a 13-speaker Meridian stereo, navigation, and a touch-screen infotainment system and USB ports. A rear-seat entertainment system, a 19- or 29-speaker Meridian audio system, a refrigerated front center console, and quad-zone climate control are available in some models. The available infotainment system is not user-friendly. It has unclear menus and requires multiple inputs to execute simple audio and climate adjustments.

How Safe Is the Range Rover?

As with many luxury large SUVs, the Land Rover Range Rover was not crash tested by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The Range Rover offers a long list of safety features. All used 2013 Range Rovers come standard with a rearview camera and front and rear parking sensors, while some models are available with blind spot monitoring, cross traffic monitoring, parallel park assist, adaptive cruise control, and a surround-view camera system. This system uses multiple cameras to display a 360-degree view of the SUV’s surroundings.

Is the 2013 Range Rover the Best Model Year to Buy?

The 2013 Land Rover Range Rover is the first model year in the SUV’s fourth generation, and it’s roomier and lighter than the previous generation. The 2013 model saw the introduction of Land Rover’s fully automatic Terrain Response 2 system, which improves the SUV’s off-road handling capabilities. The 2014 model introduced a long-wheelbase Range Rover and traded the 2013 model’s base V8 engine for a supercharged V6. The 2015 Land Rover Range Rover offers a few more safety features than 2013 and 2014 models, including standard rain-sensing windshield wipers and an available traffic sign recognition system. If these updates are unimportant to you, the 2013 model is the one to buy.

Which Used Land Rover Range Rover Is Right for Me?

The 2013 Land Rover Range Rover comes in four trims: Range Rover, HSE, Supercharged, and Autobiography. The base Range Rover is the best bet for most shoppers. It has a long list of standard features, including tri-zone climate control, navigation, leather upholstery, heated front seats, a power liftgate, satellite radio, Bluetooth, a 13-speaker Meridian stereo, a USB port, and a touch-screen infotainment system. The HSE trim adds little beyond a panoramic moonroof and heated rear seats.

Serious off-roaders should consider the Range Rover Supercharged trim, which includes front fog lights and the Terrain Response 2 system, which automatically detects the best driving mode based on road surface. The Autobiography trim includes a number of tech and luxury amenities like a back-seat, dual-screen entertainment system and a cooled front center console. It also features soft-close doors and an active rear locking differential.

Due to the Range Rover’s poor reliability rating, you may 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. The model's original sale date determines whether it is eligible for the CPO program.

2013 Land Rover Range Rover and Other SUVs to Consider

Which Is Better: 2013 Land Rover Range Rover or 2013 Lexus LX?

Both the 2013 Lexus LX and the Range Rover provide standard four-wheel drive and excellent on- and off-road handling. However, the eight-seat LX has a perfect reliability rating, a user-friendly infotainment system, and more overall cargo space. Whether you’re looking for a daily driver, an off-road beast, or an SUV that can handle both, the LX is the better choice.

Which Is Better: 2013 Land Rover Range Rover or 2013 Toyota Land Cruiser?

If you don’t mind its lack of interior opulence, you’ll find the four-wheel-drive Land Cruiser to be the better SUV. It has responsive steering and limited body roll on the road, as well as outstanding off-road capabilities. It also has a better reliability rating and an easy-to-use infotainment system. With three rows of seats, it also has more overall cargo space than the Range Rover.

Which Is Better: 2013 Land Rover Range Rover or 2013 Mercedes-Benz GL-Class?

For riding on paved surfaces, the GL-Class is the better SUV. Its composed handling, exceptionally sharp steering, and adjustable air suspension make it a comfortable option for everyday driving. It also has a beautiful, quiet cabin. Its base turbodiesel V6 engine isn’t as strong as the Range Rover’s V8, but it earns some of the best fuel economy estimates in the class. The Mercedes GL-Class can also hold more cargo than most rivals, including the Range Rover.
