2019 Land Rover Range Rover Ratings & Reliability
Owners of any ultra-luxury sedan will feel right at home in the stately Range Rover. The supercharged V6 and excellent eight-speed automatic provide effortless motivation, and the air suspension swallows up bumps with ease. Handling is responsive and secure but not sporty. We averaged 17 mpg overall in our tests. Terrain-coping mechanisms and adjustable ride height give it standout off-road abilities, as well as the ability to lower the body for easier cabin access. Interior furnishings and seats are first-rate, but the dual touch-screen infotainment system responds slowly to inputs. A 254-hp turbodiesel V6 provides ample power. A plug-in hybrid with 31 miles of electric range and a limited-edition, V8-powered SV Coupe are available as 2019 models.
2013-2018
2013 Redesign Year
Land Rover Range Rover 2018
An impressive redesign of the Range Rover brought an eight-speed automatic transmission along with supercharged V6 and V8 engines delivering immediate thrust. Combined with an aluminum unibody, fuel economy increased considerably. We averaged 17 mpg with the base V6. While not exactly stellar, this is better than most of the class. Handling is responsive and secure, but not sporty. However, ride quality is unsurpassed, as the suspension system swallows up nearly every bump. Further, offroad ability remains legendary. Tasteful wood, leather and chrome trim, in concert with very comfortable and supportive seats maintain the Range Rover’s reputation for luxury. However, some of the controls are dated, including the touchscreen infotainment system. Safety features such as blind spot monitoring, cross-traffic alert, and lane-departure warning are options -- despite the high price of entry.

2003-2012
2003 Redesign Year
Land Rover Range Rover 2012
The upscale Range Rover pioneered the luxury-SUV concept, always featuring luxury-car amenities, but complicated and inscrutable controls. Its height-adjusting air suspension can raise or lower the body for different on- and off-road conditions. An extensive 2003 redesign brought much-improved ride, handling, and refinement. Excellent BMW engines were used until 2006, when the Range Rover switched to a Jaguar V8. After 2009, a 375-hp 5.0-liter V8 was standard with a 510-hp supercharged version optional. Off-road capabilities remained first-rate.

1995-2002
Land Rover Range Rover 2002
This upscale SUV comes with all sorts of luxury-car amenities, power everything, and leather galore, as well as a number of advanced engineering features such as a sophisticated all-wheel-drive system and air suspension. When you park, the body can lower itself to ease access. Once under way, it rises again. It rises still more when you select Low Range, the better to clear off-road obstructions. The Range Rover rode comfortably for an SUV and handled adequately, though it didn't accelerate briskly-even with its husky V8. Don't expect much in the way of fuel economy.
