Used 2014 Land Rover Range Rover SUV for Sale
Edmunds' Expert Review
The 2014 Land Rover Range Rover is opulently furnished and, unusual for a modern luxury SUV, quite capable off-road. If you don't mind its size and occasionally cumbersome on-road handling, it is a genuine delight.
When it comes to ultra-luxury sport-utility vehicles, the five-passenger 2014 Land Rover Range Rover has very few peers. It resides at the top of the lux-u-vee food chain, the benchmark against which many other premium-brand SUVs are measured. Not only does it exude class and offer every spoil imaginable, it's also the real deal from a utility standpoint: It's able to go farther off-road than virtually any other four-wheeled luxury vehicle.
Fully redesigned last year, the 2014 Range Rover is still very fresh, with crisp new styling and a relatively lightweight aluminum body -- indeed, it weighs about 700 pounds less than the previous Range Rover. This massive weight reduction helps it turn and stop better than before, and when equipped with the optional supercharged V8 engine, it is stunningly fast. Expectedly, fuel economy has never been a strong suit of any previous Range Rover, though this year's new supercharged 3.0-liter V6 provides a significant bump in efficiency. Six-cylinder models earn a 19 mpg EPA combined rating compared to a mere 16 mpg combined with last year's naturally aspirated V8 engine.
One of the best places to enjoy the improved performance is from the stately second row of the new long-wheelbase (LWB) Range Rover. Nearly 8 inches longer than the standard-size 2014 Range Rover, the Supercharged LWB version has an additional 7.3 inches of rear seat legroom. The extra room and supremely quiet cabin make for a lavish experience on their own, and optional equipment like power-deployable rear tables, massive DVD entertainment screens, and reclining and massaging rear seats with power footrests virtually guarantees your passengers will get a thorough pampering.
Regardless of which size Range Rover you choose, few owners are likely to take their vehicles on a back-woods expedition, but this luxury SUV is nonetheless right at home on muddy trails or in deep snowpack. A full-on four-wheel-drive system with low-range gearing is standard, and Land Rover offers a couple different terrain management systems, the most sophisticated of which is able to detect varying trail conditions and tailor drivetrain, suspension and stability control functions accordingly
That all-terrain capability, along with its iconic design, is what sets the Range Rover apart from its rivals. However, these competitors are impressive vehicles in their own right. The athletic 2014 Porsche Cayenne has some of the best road manners in this class, not to mention an available six-cylinder diesel that returns stellar fuel economy. The 2014 Mercedes-Benz G-Class isn't nearly as civilized to drive, but it's amazing off-road and has rock-star appeal, especially in G63 AMG form. The 2014 Lexus LX 570 is also quite capable off-road, and its eight-passenger seating is a boon for larger families. If you just want a luxury SUV that goes fast, the Cayenne Turbo and Mercedes ML63 and GL63 are all compelling alternatives to the V8 Range Rover as well.
None of these alternatives boasts the 2014 Land Rover Range Rover's beguiling British heritage and safari-ready aesthetics, though. If you've decided on a Range Rover, this is certainly the most refined and desirable one to date.
trim levels & features
The 2014 Land Rover Range Rover is a five-passenger luxury SUV available in three trim levels: base, Supercharged and Supercharged LWB (long wheelbase). An optional Executive Class seating package for the Supercharged models provides rear bucket seats and decreases passenger capacity to four.
The base Range Rover comes standard with 19-inch wheels, an adjustable air suspension, front and rear parking sensors, a rearview camera, LED light signature, heated and power-folding mirrors, a power clamshell-style liftgate, automatic xenon headlights, privacy glass, keyless entry/ignition, tri-zone automatic climate control, eight-way power front seats, rear seats with manual recline, driver memory settings, leather upholstery, a power tilt-and-telescoping steering column and a heated steering wheel. Also standard is a navigation system with an 8-inch touchscreen interface and voice control for most infotainment functions, along with Macassar striped wood trim, Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity, and a 13-speaker Meridian audio system with USB/iPod/auxiliary audio ports and satellite and HD radio.
Optional for the base 2014 Range Rover is a Vision Assist package that includes an automatic setting for the Terrain Response system, configurable mood lighting, surround-view parking cameras, adaptive headlights with automatic high-beam control, a blind-spot monitor, reverse traffic detection and auto-dimming sideview mirrors.
Stand-alone options for the base Range Rover include an automated parallel-parking system (with a parking exit feature that helps you steer out of a tight space), a rear-seat entertainment system with remote control, panoramic sunroof, wood and leather steering wheel, soft door closers, an upgraded 19-speaker Meridian surround-sound audio system, adaptive cruise control and a Tow package.
The Range Rover's HSE package adds 20-inch alloy wheels, foglights, the panoramic sunroof, auto-dimming sideview mirrors, 12-way power front seats, heated rear seats and upgraded leather upholstery. With the HSE, you can further opt for 22-inch wheels and a couple of extra interior upgrade packages. The Front Seat Climate Comfort package adds ventilated and massaging front seats and a front cooler box. The Four Zone Climate Comfort pack adds four-zone automatic climate control and rear seats that have heating, ventilation, power recline and power lumbar adjustment.
Moving up to the Range Rover Supercharged model earns you a supercharged V8 engine, 21-inch alloy wheels, stainless steel pedals, the automatic Terrain Response system and the contents of the HSE package. Options essentially mirror those available for the base Range Rover, though an additional black lacquer interior wood choice is available, as is a locking rear differential. The Range Rover Supercharged LWB is equipped similarly but gives you lots more rear legroom, an extended panoramic sunroof and power rear window shades.
For the Supercharged and Supercharged LWB, you can also get the Autobiography package. It brings in almost all of the above standard and optional equipment but adds specific 21-inch wheels, extensive extra leather trim including the headliner and dashboard, 18-way-adjustable front seats with massage and memory, two 8-inch rear entertainment screens (10.2-inch screens in the LWB version) and a 29-speaker Meridian audio system with simulated 3D surround-sound technology that's said to provide a concert-like experience for every occupant. It is available in 22 distinct exterior colors. Optional for the Range Rover Autobiography are bright silver side vents, 22-inch wheels (standard-wheelbase model only) and a Rear Executive Class Seating package that incorporates two individual rear seats with memory, extra power adjustments, massage functions and a center console (the rear seatback cushions have a larger range of recline adjustment in the LWB model).
Topping the range is the Autobiography Black package, which is only available on the Supercharged LWB model and only with the rear bucket seats. For a princely sum, it adds perforated leather upholstery on the seats and headliner, power-folding rear tables, rear footrests (with additional leg support on the passenger side), a rear cooler box and upgraded interior/exterior trim (with leather upholstery and wood covering most surfaces in the cabin, and extensive metal detailing on the outside of the vehicle).
performance & mpg
Base and HSE package 2014 Land Rover Range Rovers are powered by a supercharged 3.0-liter V6 engine that generates 340 horsepower and 332 pound-feet of torque. The regular- and long-wheelbase Range Rover Supercharged models have a supercharged 5.0-liter V8 that generates a stupendous 510 hp and 461 lb-ft of torque. An eight-speed automatic transmission is coupled to either engine, and a full-time four-wheel-drive system is standard.
We have yet to test the 2014 Range Rover with the new standard supercharged V6, but Land Rover says it can hustle from zero to 60 mph in 7.1 seconds, hardly slow, but about a half-second slower than the outgoing V8 model. The payoff comes at the pump. The EPA rates the base 2014 Range Rover at 19 mpg combined (17 mpg city/23 mpg highway), a significant improvement over last year's V8 engine.
At our test track, the standard-wheelbase Range Rover Supercharged thundered to 60 mph in just 4.7 seconds, which is nearly as quick as Porsche's Cayenne Turbo. 2014 Range Rover Supercharged models built in calendar year 2013 are rated by the EPA at 15 mpg combined (13 mpg city/19 mpg highway), while models built in 2014 get an EPA rating of 16 mpg combined (14 mpg city/19 mpg highway).
In addition to full-time 4WD with low-range gearing for serious off-roading, all models come with Land Rover's signature Terrain Response system, which allows the driver to optimize powertrain, suspension and electronic stability and traction-control functions for five distinct, mostly off-road traction situations. Standard on the Range Rover Supercharged and optional on base Range Rovers is Terrain Response 2, which features an automatic function that commands the system to employ its many sensors to select the most appropriate setting. A locking rear differential is optional on the Supercharged and standard with the Autobiography package.
The 2014 Land Rover Range Rover comes equipped with antilock brakes, traction and stability control (with rollover control and hill descent control), front-seat side airbags, side curtain airbags, front-seat active head restraints and a driver-side knee airbag. Front and rear parking sensors and a rearview camera are also standard.
All models also feature Emergency Braking Assist, which uses forward-sensing radar and primes the brake system if a collision seems imminent. Optional on base models is adaptive cruise control with Intelligent Emergency Braking. It uses the radar to detect a possible collision situation and initiates braking to help avoid it. If the driver doesn't respond and a collision is deemed unavoidable, the system can engage full-force braking. The optional Vision Assist package adds blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alerts and a surround-view camera system. Models with the Autobiography or Autobiography Black package include all of the above safety equipment as standard.
We haven't sampled the new supercharged V6 in the 2014 Land Rover Range Rover yet, but the first word that comes to mind when we think of the Supercharged V8 model is fast. Indeed, the Range Rover Supercharged is a hooligan's delight when you're feeling frisky, though the gas pedal response is a bit abrupt, which can make it difficult to drive this powerful SUV gracefully. The larger, heavier Range Rover Supercharged LWB model doesn't feel quite so spirited, but there's still enough power on tap to motivate it in refined, elegant fashion.
Alas, the 2014 Range Rover still doesn't handle quite as well as the German-brand performance SUVs in this segment, but thanks to its lower weight, it's considerably more poised and responsive around turns than previous versions. Unfortunately, ride quality can be somewhat brittle over rough pavement in the standard-wheelbase model, especially if you choose one of the larger wheel sizes. You'll find a bit more comfort in the long-wheelbase Range Rover, which does a better job of ironing out road imperfections. During your test-drive, you'll want to pay particular attention to the steering. It's light and precise at low speeds (which makes for easy maneuvering around town), but we've found it gets somewhat heavy at highway speeds, which might bother some drivers.
Off-road, the Range Rover is truly spectacular, as it pounds through sand, slogs through mud, creeps over downed trees and walks up rocky trails that could be difficult even on foot. Therein lies the intrinsic appeal of the 2014 Land Rover Range Rover: It is undeniably expensive, but it can take you places that would be off limits to most other luxury-brand automobiles.
The Range Rover's cabin is as elegant as a modern five-star hotel, with clean surfaces and an industrio-chic design unlike anything else on the market. All materials are first-rate, with artfully stitched leather and gorgeous wood trim.
The driver faces a wide instrument panel with digital gauge dials. An 8-inch touchscreen in the center stack handles infotainment and other secondary controls, while a bank of dials handles basic climate control functions. On the console beneath those is Land Rover's controversial dial-type transmission selector, as well as the dial for the clever Terrain Response system's driver-selectable modes.
Rear-seat headroom and legroom are adequate for most adults with the standard wheelbase, but due to the lower roof and aerodynamic shape, tall individuals may find the rear quarters snug compared with those in the higher-ceilinged Lexus LX 570 and Mercedes GL-Class. In the long-wheelbase Range Rover, however, the rear seat is absolutely cavernous, and even the tallest passengers will have room to stretch out. There are also numerous options to enhance rear seat comfort, including reclining seatbacks, power-deployable tables and an optional (and opulent) two-seat layout to replace the three-across bench seat. No third-row seat option is offered.
The Range Rover's cargo area is adequate but not huge, with 32.1 cubic feet of cargo space with the rear seats up. In the standard-wheelbase model, there's a maximum of 71.7 cubic feet of cargo space with the rear seats folded, while the Supercharged LWB model offers a more generous 82.8 cubes. One nice feature the Range Rover does offer is a clamshell-style rear hatch that allows you to load cargo easily without having to rub against a dusty or dirty bumper.
Features & Specs
More About This Model
There's no better indication of how far Land Rover has come in the past several years than the new long-wheelbase version of the 2014 Range Rover. Launched at the 2013 L.A. Auto Show, the top-of-the-line Land Rover was pitched as an alternative to ultra-luxury sedans like the new Bentley Flying Spur and Mercedes-Benz S-Class.
Unlike those vehicles, however, the big Range Rover is a vehicle for those who prefer to be driven. That should make it as popular with Chinese and Middle Eastern plutocrats as it will be with the Hollywood glitterati.
Land Rover last launched a long-wheelbase Range Rover back in 1992 (it was known as the County LWB) but the new vehicle's origins owe more to the Autobiography Ultimate Edition of 2011. Back then it was all about Land Rover testing the market for a $150K Range Rover and it proved a huge success. Indeed, it was so successful that this newcomer is testing the market for a $200K SUV.
This Is How It's Different
Land Rover has extended the wheelbase of the Range Rover by 7.8 inches, almost all of which is given over to rear legroom, which is up by 7.3 inches. You only need to look at the disproportionate length of the rear doors to notice the difference, but there's also an "L" badge on the back for those who don't notice the gargantuan new doors.
From the inside, the rear quarters are now positively palatial, with genuine space to lounge even if you were at the front of the queue when God handed out height. You can have a standard bench seat or individual "Executive" chairs that adjust electrically in 18 different ways while massaging, heating or cooling your derriere.
The Executive seatbacks also recline by 17 degrees for a chilled-out posture. That's 11 degrees more than in the standard Range Rover. All long-wheelbase vehicles will be also equipped with standard powered door blinds and a panoramic sunroof.
Over 500 Horsepower — Standard
As befits its status, the 2014 Range Rover long-wheelbase model will only be available with Land Rover's 5.0-liter supercharged V8, because if you're going for excess, you might as well go for great excess. It's an engine that's fast becoming a staple of the Jaguar Land Rover lineup — it's even used in the Jag F-Type sports car — and for good reason.
Here it develops 510 horsepower and 461 pound-feet of torque, which is enough grunt to push the massive SUV from zero to 60 mph in just 5.5 seconds. To drive it is to be reminded of Rolls-Royce's old adage about "adequate" performance. Flex a toe and it powers forward with a nonchalant shrug, but it never feels overly jumpy or twitchy.
Many customers will never actually drive this Range Rover, so we took the occasion to ride in the back ourselves. You sit high, of course, and waft along in near silence, the combination of a long wheelbase and sophisticated air suspension turns the most pitted road surface into a newly crafted raceway. Impressively, it succeeds in combining a cushioned ride with strong body control, which helps to maintain a happy equilibrium inside the cabin. Even if the chauffeur is pushing on a little, your champagne is safe.
Should an owner care to take a turn at the wheel, the Range Rover will indulge with an impressive array of talents. Its sheer bulk means it must be handled with a modicum of care, but it can be hustled along with confidence, even on twisty roads for which you might think it is ill-suited. You can't quite overcome the laws of physics and it would be wrong to say it has the finesse of a sedan, but for a giant SUV, it's tremendous.
If Power and Plush Seats Aren't Enough, There's More
Land Rover has woken up to the growth market for personalization. At the higher reaches of the market, off-the-peg solutions are now unacceptable. To capture this market (and the generous margins it provides), Land Rover has set up an "Engineered to Order" (ETO) division to offer bespoke solutions. If you want a Rover with pink rims and a picture of Kim Kardashian on the head restraints, ETO will happily oblige — for a price.
The first product of its labor is the Autobiography Black special edition. It's only available in long-wheelbase trim and only a hundred will be offered in the U.S. for the 2014 model year. The Black is about as far as it's possible to get from the original concept of the Range Rover as a farmer's friend. The front grille, tailgate and faux side vents come dressed in black enamel and chrome, while the seven-spoke, 21-inch rims have a high-gloss finish.
Inside, the rear center console features electrically deployable tables and a chiller compartment for a bottle of bubbly. You can even choose one of 10 colors for the mood lighting to fine-tune your ambience. In standard form, the Autobiography Black will retail for $185,000, although the first 25 to reach the U.S. will come dressed in Valloire White paint and cost a mighty $199,500.
There's no denying that such a hefty sum brings a high level of opulence and an impressive list of gadgets. It's a fine place in which to make a multimillion-dollar decision or entertain a friend, although we'd argue that the quality of the trim still isn't quite a match for the backseat of a Bentley.
Why It Exists
Land Rover's executives admit that the willingness of consumers to part with vast sums for an SUV has surprised even them. It's a market they're determined to exploit, however, and this variation on the top-tier Range Rover is just the first example.
Bentley and others are known to be readying their own super-luxury SUVs, but for now at least, the 2014 Land Rover Range Rover long-wheelbase has no direct rival. Its blend of cabin space, power, features and pure exclusivity gives it a solid head start. And in parts of the world where the roads are poor and it's preferable to be driven than to drive, the Range Rover's versatility should prove a huge success.
Edmunds attended a manufacturer-sponsored event, to which selected members of the press were invited, to facilitate this report.
