Land Rover's Range Rover has long been an icon among luxury SUVs. It couples the ambience and feature-rich convenience of an ultra-luxury sedan with the off-road savvy of a true four-wheel-drive SUV. And the current model is a radically updated flagship that's plush, comfortable, and loaded with advanced technology.
Major changes for this fourth-generation model include weight-saving aluminum unibody construction, a switch to a six-cylinder as the standard engine instead of a V8, and the latest iteration of Rover's terrain-adapting electronics.
Overall, this stately coach emphasizes tranquility over dexterity. The inline six-cylinder gasoline engine and excellent eight-speed automatic transmission provide effortless power. We averaged 17 mpg on premium fuel, which isn't great but still beats most rivals.
