As good as it gets...

2003 Land Rover Range Rover HSE 4WD 4dr SUV (4.4L 8cyl 5A)
If the price tag for this truck is
intended to manage your expectations to
the highest point, Land Rover has
succeeded. I've been a BMW owner for
years, and when I saw (and read) about
the German engineering that contributed
to the re-design of the third-
generation Range Rover I was intrigued.
The BMW 4.4 liter V8 (tuned to the
needs of the more weighty Rover than
the 5 series) seems a plenty powerful
match-up to the Rover. (Coming from the
polar opposite ride, a 1997 M3, I can't
be a good judge of handling,
acceleration, etc. on comparison.)
Actual fuel economy, reset for a 4-hour
stretch of interstate with cruise on
was 20.6 mpg.
