2015 Land Rover LR4 KBB Expert Review
Land Rover’s LR4 luxury SUV for 2015 is quite an impressive piece of design. From a luxury standpoint the LR4 offers all the nobility of the brand’s best features, from elegant leather and wood interiors to sophisticated infotainment and safety features. Every bit the equal of the Mercedes-Benz GL450 and Infiniti QX60, the LR4 leaves them both at the road’s end (along with a number of the LR4’s competitors). Off-road ability is what made Land Rover famous, and its full-size luxury SUVs have not given up an inch of ability in the quest to move up-market. Then again, if off-road ability isn’t a priority, you can find more luxury, a quieter cabin and much better fuel economy in an Audi Q7 3.0 TDI.

Looking for a rugged, go-anywhere SUV that also demonstrates your success in life? Land Rover’s 2015 LR4 is just the ticket.
You May Not Like This Car If...
A soft ride, quiet cabin and good fuel economy are not among the 2015 Land Rover LR4’s praises. If any or all of these traits are important to you, a nice Audi Q7, Infiniti QX60 or even the larger Cadillac Escalade makes more sense.
What's New for 2015
After last year’s significant engine upgrade, changes for the 2015 LR4 luxury SUV are minimal. Land Rover’s InControl Apps and smartphone integration is now available, as is a new dual-tone Windsor Leather seat option. Side step rails are now standard while adaptive cruise control and collision mitigation are made available.
Land Rover’s suspension engineers have done a masterful job infusing the 2015 LR4 luxury SUV with two traits not commonly associated with a tall center of gravity and a rugged body-on-frame design: a comfortable ride and stable handling. Don’t get us wrong, the LR4 is no corner-carver, but under normal driving conditions it does just fine. The LR4 is quite comfortable in around-town maneuvers, too. A tight 37.5-foot turning radius is as equally handy for navigating tight parking lots as it is snaking through twisting dirt trails. The LR4’s 3.0-liter V6 is more than up to the task, with 340 horsepower and a smooth-shifting 8-speed automatic transmission. Get the LR4 off paved roads and its true abilities shine, able to tackle almost any terrain from snow to rocks to loose sand or deep mud, all by merely twisting a dial.
4-CORNER AIR SUSPENSION
One of the 2015 Land Rover LR4 SUV’s best features is its adjustable air suspension. With just a push of a button the LR4 can raise itself to clear treacherous obstacles, or lower itself to allow easy entry for passengers and cargo.
HILL DESCENT CONTROL
Both novice drivers and pros alike will appreciate the LR4’s Hill Descent Control. As a supplement to the Terrain Response system, Hill Descent Control automatically holds the LR4 to a slow-and-steady speed so you don’t ever have to touch the brake pedal.
The 2015 Land Rover LR4 SUV's cabin is as upscale and modern as one might expect, made even more opulent with the HSE LUX trim’s available dual-tone Windsor leather seating. Quality materials abound, and the intuitive and clearly labeled buttons and dials have a visual and tactile heft. An optional third row extends seating from five up to seven, but that optional rearmost seat is best left to kids. Otherwise it's roomy: There's good 2nd-row legroom, with more than 40 cubic feet of cargo room behind the second row.
Land Rover’s luxury LR4 SUV for 2015 reminds us of the box a sleeker SUV was shipped in. But that's okay, as the squared-off shape is indicative of its utilitarian, go-anywhere mission. Land Rover has softened the look with a slightly rounded-off front end and bumper, along with new wheels and paint colors. The effect is one of upscale utility, which sounds like an oxymoron until you look at an LR4. It's easy to see out of thanks to all the windows, and the 2-piece asymmetrical tailgate is both distinctive and useful. The panoramic glass roof? That's just pure luxury.
Notable Standard Equipment
The 2015 Land Rover LR4 comes in Base, HSE and HSE LUX trims. Base models come standard with seating for five and are comprehensively equipped, including the air suspension, start/stop technology, the single-speed transfer gear, a Meridian sound system, and front and rear parking sensors. The HSE and HSE LUX trims come standard with seven seats. The HSE also adds front park-distance control, xenon headlights and a navigation system. The full-boat HSE LUX adds surround sound to the Meridian system, the Windsor Leather package and unique wheels.
Notable Optional Equipment
A nifty 5-camera system is available that relays a surround view of your LR4, letting you see where your eyes can’t. Other extras include a rear-seat DVD entertainment system and adaptive cruise control with collision-mitigation braking. Those who plan to do serious off-roading should consider the Heavy Duty Package that includes a locking rear differential, low range for the transfer case and a full-size spare tire. Seven-passenger seating is optional on base models.
Under the Hood
The 2015 LR4 luxury SUV is powered by a potent 3.0-liter supercharged V6. Mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission, this setup provides strong acceleration but somewhat punishing fuel economy. The V6 also features start/stop technology that shuts off the engine at an extended stoplight. A heavy dual-range, off-road-ready transfer case is optional, rather than standard. Towing capacity for the V6 is 7,716 pounds.
3.0-liter supercharged V6
340 horsepower @ 6,500 rpm
332 lb-ft of torque @ 3,500-5,000 rpm
EPA city/highway fuel economy: 15/19 mpg
The 2015 Land Rover LR4 has a Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) starting just above $51,000. The mid-tier HSE trim begins around $56,250, while the top-line HSE LUX is just over $61,500 and can reach nearly $80,000 when loaded. At these prices the 2015 LR4 is in line with the Audi Q7, BMW X5 and Porsche Cayenne. It is several thousand more than the base prices of 7-passenger crossover SUVs such as the Infiniti QX60, Acura MDX and Buick Enclave. Before buying, be sure to check the KBB Fair Purchase Price below to see what others in your area are paying. Resale value has traditionally been a sore spot for Land Rover vehicles, but the 2015 LR4’s prospects are looking brighter. Its residuals are in the middle of the pack among luxury SUVs, in line with rivals like the BMW X5 and Infiniti QX60, but still below the Audi Q7 and Lexus GX.
