The 2014 Land Rover LR4 receives important updates this year. Foremost is a new drivetrain, including a new 3.0-liter V6 engine and 8-speed automatic transmission. The 2014 LR4 also gets a new front bumper and headlights, and Meridian replaces harman/kardon as the audio system of choice.
To meet ever-tightening fuel economy standards, the 2014 Land Rover LR4 SUV replaces last year's V8 with a new supercharged 3.0-liter V6 and a new 8-speed automatic. The change improved fuel economy by two mpg in the EPA's city, highway, and combined scale, but unfortunately it's still unimpressive. The good news is that the 2014 LR4 retains all the off-road capability it was born with, including available low-range gearing and 4-corner air suspension. It lets you drive your big SUV places soft-roaders like the Audi Q7, Infiniti QX60, and BMW X5 would fear to tread. On the other hand, if blazing trails isn't your thing, maybe one of those would be a better pick thanks to the LR4's still-bad fuel economy.

"Purchased a new LR4 a few months ago and already have over 4,000 miles from driving part way across the country. This vehicle fits my needs in every way. The size of it easily allows multiple bikes to be put in it. The third row seats comfortably fit adults while also folding flat with the second row to allow lots of hauling space. The ride is quite smooth with the air suspension. The interior is well appointed in the HSE model and the interface for the touch screen is easy to use (the backup camera is also a must if parallel parking in a city). My primary concern prior to purchasing the car was reliability but I have done highway, city and light off-road driving without any issues except for a squeak from the rear brake which went away after a few days. Overall, a great car especially versus the competition."

"We just picked up our LR4 last week and it has been a great experience. Looking for a mid to large sized luxury SUV and this fit the bill. Almost went with Lexus GX but we got a better deal on the LR4 plus more accessories. The tire pressure indicator did come on after the first day but due to over inflation at pick up. It costs a bundle but is exceeding my expectations. I'll report out again after six months of driving."

"I've owned the 2011 for a couple of months now and compared it to the competition when looking to buy. For the same price, the amount of luxury and capability you get for the money makes the LR4 a hands down winner when compared to BMW, Audi, Lexus and Mercedes. The LR4 is extremely capable offroad and the interior is very comfortable with a high level of finishes. I'm very happy that I made the purchase. Excellent design and value for the money."
