2018 Land Rover Range Rover Overview

Is the 2018 Land Rover Range Rover a Good Used SUV?

The Range Rover is a decent option if you’re shopping for a used luxury SUV.

There are a few highlights that set the 2018 Range Rover apart from the rest:

  • Handsome and roomy five-seat interior
  • Many standard and available safety features
  • Silky smooth ride quality
  • Terrific off-road ability
  • Powerful gas and diesel engines
  • Great fuel economy for a large SUV
  • Hefty 7,700-pound towing capacity

There are some major drawbacks though:

  • Below-average predicted reliability rating
  • Frustrating dual-screen infotainment system
  • Smallest cargo hold in the class

Ultimately, there are other luxury large SUVs that are more practical to live with day to day. Rivals like the 2018 Toyota Land Cruiser and 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLS are roomier, they rate much higher for predicted reliability, and they typically demand lower asking prices.

Which Used Range Rover Trim Is Right for Me?

The 2018 Range Rover is available in five trim levels: base, HSE, Supercharged, Autobiography, and SVAutobiography. The base model is the best option for most shoppers, given its wide array of standard features and punchy V6 engine options. If you want the V8 engine, you’ll need to opt for the Supercharged trim or higher.

  • Range Rover: The base model has a 340-horsepower supercharged V6, an eight-speed automatic transmission, and four-wheel drive. A turbodiesel V6 with 254 horsepower is also available. The standard Touch Pro Duo infotainment system features navigation, two 10-inch touch screens, a digital gauge cluster, a Wi-Fi hot spot, 13 speakers, HD Radio, satellite radio, USB ports, and Bluetooth. Standard features also include push-button start, tri-zone automatic climate control, leather upholstery, heated and 16-way power-adjustable front seats, a hands-free power liftgate, LED headlights, a heated windshield, heated side mirrors, an adaptive air suspension, and 19-inch alloy wheels. Standard safety features include a rearview camera, parking sensors, forward collision warning with brake assist, rain-sensing windshield wipers, and lane departure warning.
  • Range Rover HSE: The ritzier HSE trim offers the same supercharged V6 engine option, but it produces 380 horsepower. This trim also adds a panoramic sunroof, power soft-closing doors, 20-way adjustable front seats, a heated steering wheel, heated rear seats, and 20-inch wheels.
  • Range Rover Supercharged: The midrange Supercharged model adds a 518-horsepower V8 engine and larger 21-inch wheels. This trim is also available in a long-wheelbase body style, which adds an extra 7 inches of rear legroom.
  • Range Rover Autobiography: The Autobiography trim is powered by a 518-horsepower V8, and it's also available in standard and long-wheelbase body styles. This trim adds a locking rear differential, crawl control, fog lights, a 29-speaker stereo, quad-zone automatic climate control, and massaging front seats that are both heated and ventilated. It also offers blind spot monitoring, lane keep assist, adaptive cruise control, a driver drowsiness monitor, traffic sign recognition, parallel park assist, and 360-degree parking sensors.
  • Range Rover SVAutobiography: The opulent SVAutobiography model packs a 557-horsepower V8 engine and the Executive Class Comfort Plus package, which includes heated and massaging rear seats with leg rests.

What Does Land Rover's Certified Pre-Owned Warranty Cover?

Land Rover offers a certified pre-owned program for vehicles five years old or less and with fewer than 60,000 miles. Eligibility is determined by the vehicle’s initial sale date. Land Rover extends its original new-car warranty to seven years from the original sale date or 100,000 miles for certified pre-owned vehicles. Every CPO Land Rover must pass a 165-point inspection. Additional benefits like towing, roadside assistance, and trip interruption benefits may be available, so read the Land Rover warranty page carefully.

Land Rover has one of the best CPO programs in the industry, according to our analysis. Only Tesla and Lexus have more robust programs.

2018 Range Rover Versus the Competition

Some of the Range Rover’s strongest competition comes from within the Land Rover family. For instance, the 2018 Range Rover Sport shares most of its components with the Range Rover, but it offers seating for up to seven passengers. The 2018 Land Rover Discovery is another option. It isn’t available with the Range Rover’s powerful V8 engine, though it does offer both V6s, and it can seat seven occupants as well.

Which Is Better: 2018 Range Rover or 2018 Mercedes-Benz G-Class?

The 2018 Mercedes G-Class has a similar appeal to the Range Rover. Each SUV is exceptionally capable off-road, packs a lineup of truly muscular engine options, and boasts a high-end interior. Neither are top picks in this class, but of the two, the Rover is a better buy. It earns far superior fuel economy, and it’s much more comfortable to drive on everyday road surfaces. Used models tend to be a bit less expensive as well.

Which Is Better: 2018 Range Rover or 2018 Lincoln Navigator?

The 2018 Lincoln Navigator can’t match the Range Rover when it comes to off-road ability. That said, it’s a much better SUV for everyday driving. The Navigator has an easier-to-use infotainment system, which features Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Its seating area is roomier and can fit up to seven passengers. The Navigator also boasts more cargo space and a superior predicted reliability rating than the Rover. Best of all, used models are far less expensive. Opt for the Lincoln.

2018 Range Rover Performance

How Does the 2018 Range Rover Drive?

The Range Rover delivers an amazing mix of comfort and athleticism. This big SUV feels stable around turns, with responsive steering and an adaptive air suspension that does an incredible job of soaking up bumps and dips in the road. Rough patches of pavement barely even register, especially in models fitted with the smaller 19-inch wheels. The Rover is surprisingly easy to park for such a large SUV. If there is a hiccup, it’s with the brakes. They provide fine stopping power, but the SUV tends to nosedive during panic stops, which can be alarming.

When it comes to off-road performance, though, the Range Rover is a champ. All models are outfitted with four-wheel drive, multiple traction control modes, and a two-speed transfer case with high- and low-range gearing. The Range Rover’s suspension flexes and articulates well over rough terrain, and it can provide up to 11.6 inches of ground clearance. It’s an easy SUV to drive off the road as well; its onboard computers work behind the scenes to adjust the brakes and suspension for maximum grip.

The Range Rover is available with multiple engine options, and all are more than capable of hauling the SUV around with ease. The standard supercharged V6 and available turbodiesel V6 feel refined, and they can hustle the Range Rover from zero to 60 mph in just over seven seconds. Both are paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission that fires off quick, smooth shifts. The V8 is the most exciting pick in this lineup. It produces a nice rumble from its exhaust pipes and it can accelerate the Range Rover to 60 mph in around five seconds.

  • Base engine: 340-horsepower 3.0-liter supercharged V6
  • Available engines:
    • 254-horsepower turbodiesel 3.0-liter V6 (base and HSE)
    • 380-horsepower supercharged 3.0-liter V6 (HSE)
    • 518-horsepower supercharged 5.0-liter V8 (Supercharged and Autobiography)
    • 557-horsepower supercharged 5.0-liter V8 (SVAutobiography)
  • Drivetrain: four-wheel drive
  • Transmission: eight-speed automatic
Does the 2018 Range Rover Get Good Gas Mileage?

The Range Rover’s diesel and gas V6 engines earn great fuel economy for a luxury large SUV. The V8’s fuel economy is on par with top class competitors.

  • Base and HSE with V6: 17/23 mpg city/highway
  • Base and HSE with diesel V6: 22/28 mpg
  • Supercharged and Autobiography: 16/21 mpg
  • SVAutobiography: 14/19 mpg
2018 Range Rover Towing Capacity

When properly equipped, the Range Rover can tow up to 7,700 pounds.

2018 Range Rover Interior

How Many People Does the 2018 Range Rover Seat?

The Range Rover is a two-row SUV with five seats. The front seats are comfy and supportive, and they provide ample head- and legroom for tall occupants. The driving position is nice as well, and it offers excellent front and side visibility. Rear visibility is just okay.

Unlike in most vehicles, the rear seats are where you’ll really want to sit in the Range Rover. These seats are cushy and quite spacious, especially in long-wheelbase models, which boast a tremendous 47 inches of rear legroom – 7 more inches than the standard-wheelbase model. There’s no shortage of amenities either, including rear leg rests and massaging functionality.

The Range Rover’s cabin is elegantly styled, and practically every surface is upholstered, padded, or trimmed with high-end materials. Its appearance is more reserved than showy though. The interior remains library quiet, even at higher speeds.

Standard seating features:

  • leather upholstery
  • heated and 16-way power-adjustable front seats

Available seating features:

  • heated, ventilated, and massaging front seats
  • heated rear seats
  • heated and massaging rear seats with leg rests (Executive Class Comfort Plus package)
How Many Child Car Seats Fit in the 2018 Range Rover?

The Range Rover has two full sets of LATCH connectors for securing child car seats.

2018 Range Rover Features

The Range Rover is equipped with the brand’s latest Touch Pro Duo infotainment system, which features two 10-inch touch screens. The upper screen manages most of the audio, phone, and navigation functions. The lower screen is accompanied by two knobs, and it adjusts the seating, climate, and vehicle settings.

This layout has a sleek and futuristic look, but it’s not user-friendly in practice. The menus are confusing, it can take a few steps just to change basic settings, and the screens tend to respond slowly to inputs. Additionally, the setup requires a bit too much attention from the driver.

  • Standard infotainment features: two 10-inch touch screens, a navigation system, a 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster, HD Radio, satellite radio, 13 speakers, Bluetooth, USB ports, and a Wi-Fi hot spot
  • Available infotainment features: a rear-seat entertainment system with 8- or 10-inch screens, a 19-speaker stereo, and a 29-speaker stereo
  • Additional standard features: tri-zone automatic climate control, keyless entry, and push-button start
  • Other available features: quad-zone automatic climate control, a beverage cooler, power soft-closing doors, rear sunshades, and a panoramic sunroof

2018 Range Rover Dimensions

Range Rover Cargo Space

The Range Rover has 31.8 cubic feet of cargo space behind its rear seats, and 68.6 cubic feet with these seats folded (or 75.6 cubic feet in long-wheelbase models). That’s a large cargo area, and it’s more than enough room for transporting big items. That said, every other luxury large SUV has more space, especially the long-wheelbase 2018 Lincoln Navigator and 2018 Cadillac Escalade.

These cargo dimensions are for comparative purposes. There is no substitute for visually examining the storage area in any car you’re considering.

2018 Range Rover Length and Weight

  • Curb weight: 4,958 to 5,505 pounds
