Which Range Rover does Edmunds recommend?
Edmunds' Expert Review
Overall rating4 / 5
Land Rover's Range Rover is a five-person, all-wheel-drive sport-utility vehicle that has infiltrated popular culture to the point where people refer to it strictly by model name. At its core, the Range Rover is an all-terrain vehicle that's designed to take its passengers in comfort over hill and through valley as well as through the rough and tumble of downtown city streets.
This effortless performance is achieved through powerful engine options, a clever all-wheel-drive system and an adjustable suspension system. This allows the Range Rover to traverse rutted roads and snowy or muddy trails with confidence. Meanwhile, a plethora of interior and exterior options help make your Range Rover unique.
It's this go-anywhere capability that has garnered the Range Rover its reputation. Combined with its stately exterior and interior designs and five trim levels spanning multiple price segments, the Range Rover easily earns our recommendation for a luxury SUV.
Trim levels & features
While the standard 2017 Land Rover Range Rover comes well equipped, the Range Rover HSE offers more standard features, such as soft-close doors, a panoramic roof and a higher output gasoline engine. The Range Rover Supercharged is similarly equipped but has a supercharged V8. Next, the Autobiography adds more luxury options and driver assist systems while the SVAutobiography Dynamic adds more power and sportier suspension tuning. Long wheelbase versions of the Supercharged and Autobiography add more than 7 inches of extra rear legroom.
The Land Rover Range Rover comes with your choice of a gasoline-fed supercharged V6 (340 horsepower, 332 pound-feet of torque) or a turbocharged diesel V6 (254 hp, 443 lb-ft). An eight-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive are standard. Unlike other variants, there is no optional upgraded seat package, and a panoramic roof is only available as an option in this standard trim. Even still, a 13-speaker Meridian sound system and Land Rover's InControl Touch Pro infotainment system (with a new 10.2-inch touchscreen) are standard. Plus, many options are available to get your Range Rover equipped nicely.
Next up is the Range Rover HSE that includes a few more standard features, such as 20-inch wheels, soft-close doors, upgraded front seats and access to a greater catalog of options. You can get the HSE with either the diesel V6 from the standard model or a powered-up version of the turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 (380 hp, 332 lb-ft).
Next is the Range Rover Supercharged, which is powered by a supercharged 5.0-liter V8 (510 hp, 461 lb-ft). The Supercharged variant comes with 21-inch wheels, a more capable Terrain Response 2 system and All-Terrain Progress Control, which is basically the off-road version of cruise control.
The next rung up is the Range Rover Autobiography. And although it comes with the same 3.0-liter turbocharged V6 engine as the HSE (the supercharged V8 is optional), it features significantly more content than the Supercharged, such as a 29-speaker Meridian sound system and standard driver assist systems such as blind-spot monitoring and lane departure intervention.
If you want the sportiest Range Rover, go with the Range Rover SVAutobiography Dynamic. It utilizes an uprated version of the 5.0-liter supercharged V8 gasoline engine and produces 550 hp and 502 lb-ft of torque, providing very sports-carlike 0-60 mph acceleration (5.1 seconds, says Land Rover). The Dynamic variant also features a lowered ride height and a more aggressive on-road suspension calibration.
The long-wheelbase models all share the same extended chassis. The Range Rover's wheelbase is lengthened by 7.9 inches, and rear seat legroom grows by 7.3 inches. Otherwise, they feature similar setups as their short-wheelbase twins. As the top dog, the SVAutobiography LWB comes with reclining executive-class seats, which include deployable tables, a center console cooler (with glasses) and a rear-seat entertainment system.
Each vehicle typically comes in multiple versions that are fundamentally similar. The ratings in this review are based on our test of the 2016 Land Rover Range Rover HSE TD6 (turbo 3.0L V6 diesel | 8-speed automatic | AWD).
NOTE: Since this test was conducted, the current 2017 Land Rover Range Rover has received some revisions, including a revised InControl Touch Pro navigation and entertainment system and the new Terrain Response 2, an automated driving mode system. Our findings, however, remain broadly applicable to this year's Range Rover.

2017 Land Rover Range Rover Diesel for Sale
The 2017 Land Rover Range Rover is priced high, but it has the luxury features, amenities, design and heritage that deserve the price. Yes, you could spend less to get similar off-road capability, or get the luxury experience somewhere else, but you won't find both in one place. And Land Rover has consistently delivered on making a do-everything luxury product. You could even say it practically invented the genre.
Though most buyers will purchase an available model off the sales floor, the true benefit of the Range Rover experience is being able to configure and option the car to your exacting specifications because the Range Rover offers tremendous opportunities for fine-tuning. From the variety of engine choices, such as a turbocharged V6 with two power outputs, a supercharged V8 with two power outputs, and a turbodiesel V6, and even two wheelbases, you can almost mix and match any chassis and powertrain configuration to your needs. Regardless of powertrain or chassis, though, you'll get an eight-speed automatic transmission and Land Rover's InControl Touch Pro touchscreen navigation and entertainment system with a Meridian stereo system. The Terrain Response all-wheel-drive system and adjustable suspension damping are also standard, and they are what allow Range Rovers to crawl over just about any terrain. Terrain Response ensures torque is applied to the wheel or wheels that have the most grip, and it works great on slick and rough terrain.
Of course, these are the just the basics. Going further, there are multiple wheel choices in various sizes, numerous exterior color options, and leather and wood trim packages. Most variants allow you to add on step rails and mud flaps and paint the roof in different colors. Certain models even have unique leather treatments; the seats in the new for 2017 Land Rover Range Rover SVAutobiography Dynamic can be swathed in quilted red leather, for example. Long-wheelbase models, in particular the Autobiography Long Wheelbase and SVAutobiography Long Wheelbase, can be equipped with first-class rear seats complete with fold-away tables and a drink chiller in the center console.
If a do-it-all luxury off-roader such as the Range Rover is something you'd be interested in, let Edmunds help find or configure the perfect 2017 Land Rover Range Rover for you.

Should I lease or buy a 2017 Land Rover Range Rover?
Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
