2015 Land Rover Range Rover Review

By

KBB Expert Rating: 7.1

The 2015 Range Rover is the flagship SUV in Land Rover's lineup, offering some of the best on-road and off-road capability money can buy. Now in its fourth generation, this high-end 5-passenger SUV boasts sleek design, a lightweight aluminum body and sophisticated safety and technology systems. While the Range Rover's ability to roam to the ends of the Earth are renown, most surprising is its exceptional comfort and abundant power from a supercharged V6 or V8. Available in standard- or long-wheelbase form and spanning from an $84,000 "base" model to a $200,000 4-wheel-drive yacht, this British luxury SUV easily matches or bests rivals such as the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class and Lexus LX. However, the Range Rover has yet to attain its rivals' resale values.

You'll Like This Car If...

Whether it serves as a suburban status symbol for ferrying the kids or a terrain-conquering grand-touring vehicle used for getaways to the chalet, the 2015 Range Rover has an uncanny ability to serve the needs and tastes of its affluent buyers. For the ultra-rich, Autobiography models add further opulence.

You May Not Like This Car If...

If you need seating for more than five, consider a 3-row luxury SUV such as the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class or the considerably less expensive Acura MDX or Infiniti QX60. Want a diesel Range Rover? Wait one more year. Finally, you may want to ask yourself if you'll ever utilize this SUV's extreme off-road abilities.

What's New for 2015

A less expensive long-wheelbase version is available in the Range Rover HSE, and that trim also gains soft-close doors and heated/cooled front seats. A Driver Assistance Package adds lane-departure warning, Park Distance Control that can prevent side impacts in tight confines, and assistance systems for getting into and out of parallel-parking spots.

Driving the Range Rover
Driving Impressions

On the highway, Range Rover's ultimate SUV is as hushed and controlled as a luxury sedan. Off the asphalt, this brute has the ability to scale small mountains and claw...

... its way over craggy paths. And it can do this, all within the supple confines of a leather-laden cocoon. Though most drivers probably won't take advantage of the Range Rover's extreme off-road abilities or use its adjustable ground clearance to wade through nearly three feet of water, this SUV has the capability to push far beyond civilization. In the urban jungle where most Range Rovers roam, its ride is so refined that you'll think you're in a luxury sedan. Supercharged V8 models are very fast, with the ability to leap to 60 mph in just 5.1 seconds. More efficient V6 models can do that in only a couple of seconds more. Despite its tall profile, the Range Rover is utterly stable in corners.

SUPER ABILITIES
It may not leap tall buildings, but the 2015 Range Rover can sure scale other objects. When elevated nearly a foot via air suspension, this SUV can clamber over obstacles or wade through creeks. Low-range gearing and Terrain Response, meanwhile, can make off-road amateurs look like pros.

MERIDIAN AUDIO SYSTEMS
Befitting a British luxury vehicle is a British audiophile sound system. Even base models boast a 380-watt Meridian unit, but if you really appreciate high-end audio, go for the upgraded versions. The 825-watt Premium system boasts 19 speakers, while Signature Reference variant is sonic bliss with 1,700 watts and 29 speakers.

The 2015 Range Rover is tough on the outside but soft and luxurious within. Two rows of seats hold five passengers, and this luxury SUV's boxy design yields plenty of room for cargo behind the rear seat. At nearly 40 inches, rear legroom is spacious even in standard-wheelbase models. Long-wheelbase Range Rovers offer an additional 7.3 inches of stretch-out room. For the ultimate in rear-seat comfort, Range Rover Autobiography models offer executive rear seating, which replaces the 3-passenger bench with a pair of sculpted seats with recline and massage functionality. The front seats are a pleasure and offer a commanding view.

Exterior

All-new just last year, the 2015 Range Rover retains its classic boxy shape while sporting classy and modern touches such as a honeycomb grille and vertical lines just behind the front wheels that break up the big SUV's proportions. At 196.8 inches in length – shorter than a full-size sedan – a standard-wheelbase (SWB) Range Rover is relatively easy to maneuver. Long-wheelbase (LWB) models are stretched to 204.7 inches. Beneath the paint, this generation Range Rover is the first to use an aluminum unibody structure. The lightweight metal has helped this SUV shed up to 700 pounds versus the previous generation.

Notable Equipment
Standard Equipment

The 2015 Land Rover Range Rover comes in four main trims: Range Rover, HSE, Supercharged and Autobiography. Even in "base" form this SUV offers much, as should be expected from its $84,000-plus price tag. Beyond its on-road refinement and off-road hardware, this 4-wheel-drive luxury SUV includes leather interior, power tailgate, rearview camera, xenon headlights, 19-inch wheels and hard-drive navigation system. Entertainment is brought by a 380-watt/13-speaker Meridian audio system with 8-inch touch screen. HSE models include heated and cooled front seats, panoramic roof, larger wheels and a soft door-closing feature. Supercharged and Autobiography models include the supercharged V8 engine and further amenities.

Optional Equipment

Options for the Range Rover are abundant. For around $2,000, the Vision Assist package adds a surround-camera system, blind-spot monitoring and the Terrain Response 2 system. Higher-grade versions of the Meridian audio systems equal sonic bliss. The new Driver Assistance Package with lane-departure warning and traffic-sign recognition to warn you of speed limits and road information is standard on Autobiography models and optional on others. Back-seat bliss can be had with heated and cooled seats with massage, center-console cooler and dual-screen entertainment system. Those who wish to take their 6-figure SUV off-roading may opt for a locking differential on the V8 supercharged model.

Under the Hood

Two supercharged engines are available for the 2015 Range Rover: a gasoline V6 or V8. The V6 arrived last year and replaced the naturally aspirated V8. The 3.0-liter V6 makes 340 horsepower, enough to get this large SUV up to speed quite quickly. The 510-horsepower supercharged 5.0-liter V8 makes this Range Rover faster than many sports cars, though it has an appetite for premium-grade gasoline. With either engine the Range Rover is rated to tow 7,716 pounds. Both have a defeatable engine start/stop feature that ekes out better fuel economy. Land Rover has announced that a 3.0-liter turbodiesel Range Rover will arrive in the U.S. for the 2016 model year. It is said to be 32 percent more fuel-efficient than the current gasoline V6.

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.: 17/23 mpg

5.0-liter supercharged V8
510 horsepower @ 6,500 rpm
461 lb-ft of torque @ 2,500-5,500 rpm
EPA city/highway fuel economy: 14/19 mpg
