Which Range Rover does Edmunds recommend?
Edmunds' Expert Review
It's not an exaggeration to say that the 2019 Land Rover Range Rover is one of the most versatile vehicles on sale today. With standard four-wheel drive, configurable traction settings and an air suspension, the Range Rover is capable of tackling muddy trails and wading through water nearly 3 feet deep. Yet it's equally able to tackle the worst of the urban jungle thanks to its cosseting cabin and high-end luxury feature. It's similar to the Range Rover Sport, but the bigger Range Rover offers increased interior room, a nicer interior, and a road presence that the Sport just can't match.
Realistically, Range Rovers will rack up more miles cruising Rodeo Drive than crawling through Joshua Tree National Park. Up until now, its beefy engines weren't exactly optimized for the low-speed city driving that most owners will experience. But new for 2019 is a plug-in hybrid variant that promises up to 31 miles of electric-only driving before the turbocharged four-cylinder joins in.
The Range Rover plug-in is the only model currently on sale for the 2019 model year. The other gasoline- and diesel-powered models you'll find on dealership lots are model-year 2018 vehicles. You can read about and shop for these models on our 2018 Land Rover Range Rover page. We'll update our review once the full line of the 2019 Range Rover becomes available.
Trim levels & features
More information about other trim levels and powertrains will be released later this year, but for now the 2019 Land Rover Range Rover is only available in the HSE trim. This well-equipped five-passenger full-size SUV is loaded with standard features, though a few more are available in packages or as stand-alone options. The P400e's plug-in hybrid powertrain is a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder paired to an 85-kW electric motor, driving all four wheels through an eight-speed automatic transmission. Read our 2018 Land Rover Range Rover review for information about last year's model range.
Land Rover estimates the plug-in hybrid will achieve 31 miles of all-electric range before the gasoline engine kicks on. According to Land Rover, charging the 13-kWh battery takes 7.5 hours from a 10-amp supply such as the ones that power a traditional wall socket. A heavy-duty 32-amp wall box can charge the battery in 2.5 hours. The total system output is 398 horsepower and 472 pound-feet of torque.
Standard exterior features on the P400e HSE plug-in hybrid include 20-inch wheels, LED headlights and taillights, automatic wipers, power-folding heated and auto-dimming mirrors, a hands-free liftgate, a self-leveling air suspension with automatic height adjustment for loading and unloading, adaptive suspension dampers, a low-range transfer case, selectable terrain modes, a panoramic glass roof, keyless entry and soft-closing doors.
Inside, you'll find tri-zone automatic climate control, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, a heated and power-adjustable tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel with wheel-mounted paddle shifters, driver-seat memory settings, 16-way heated and power-adjustable front seats (with four-way power lumbar), 60/40-split heated rear seats, leather upholstery, a navigation system, a 10-inch touchscreen, and a 19-speaker audio system with USB connectivity and satellite and HD radio. Standard safety features include a rearview camera, front and rear parking sensors, a blind-spot monitor with rear cross-path alert, lane departure warning, a driver-condition monitoring system and traffic sign recognition.
A number of features packages are also available. Packages with driver assistance technologies include Drive Pro, which brings adaptive cruise control and lane keeping assist; Park Pro, which adds an automated parallel and perpendicular parking system; and Vision Assist, which brings automatic high beams, foglights, ambient lighting, a head-up display and a 360-degree parking camera.
Notable stand-alone options include 21-inch wheels, heated and ventilated front and rear seats, massaging front seats, four-zone climate control, faux-suede headliner, a cooler under the center armrest, a dual-screen rear entertainment system, additional wood interior trim and a tow package.
Each vehicle typically comes in multiple versions that are fundamentally similar. We haven't yet driven the Range Rover with the plug-in hybrid powertrain, but we have driven a diesel-powered model of this generation. The ratings in this review are based on our full test of the Land Rover Range Rover HSE TD6 (turbo 3.0L V6 diesel | 8-speed automatic | AWD).
NOTE: Since this test was conducted in 2016, the current Range Rover has received some revisions, including a revised InControl Touch Pro Duo navigation and entertainment system and the new Terrain Response 2, an automated driving mode system. Our findings remain broadly applicable to this year's Range Rover.

Land Rover Range Rover vs. the competition
2019 Land Rover Range Rover
2019 Land Rover Range Rover Sport
Land Rover Range Rover vs. Land Rover Range Rover Sport
The Range Rover Sport is the Range Rover's smaller, less expensive sibling. It doesn't offer all the luxury amenities or deep customization options of the full-size Range Rover, but the midsize Sport has a similar level of off-road ability. It's priced lower than its big brother and, unlike the Range Rover, the Sport can be optioned with a third row of seating.
Land Rover Range Rover vs. Land Rover Discovery
Like most Land Rovers, the Discovery can tackle light off-roading. Most Discovery trims come with three rows, though it's difficult to get into and out of the back unless you moonlight as a Cirque du Soleil contortionist. Its cabin isn't as decadent as the Range Rover's, but it also costs significantly less.
Land Rover Range Rover vs. Toyota Land Cruiser
It might seem strange comparing a Toyota to a Range Rover, but the Land Cruiser is a seriously capable off-road machine. With a locking center differential, a low-speed, off-road-oriented cruise control system and the trick KDSS system (which can disconnect the front and rear stabilizer bars), the Land Cruiser is another good choice for those looking for on-road luxury and trail-conquering performance.
The 2019 Land Rover Range Rover comes with a high price tag, but it packs the luxury features, amenities, design and heritage that demand that 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. Whether you're looking for the ultimate cruiser brimming with luxury features or a family shuttle with all the latest safety tech, there's a Range Rover for you.
We expect a full range of gasoline and diesel engines will be available in the near future, but for now, the sole powertrain is a new-for-2019 plug-in hybrid. A turbocharged four-cylinder and electric motor combine to send nearly 400 horsepower to all four wheels via an eight-speed automatic transmission. This powertrain gives the Range Rover an enviable mix of fuel efficiency and raw power. Range Rover says the plug-in can travel up to 31 miles on electricity alone, giving it one of the lengthiest all-electric range estimates we've seen in a plug-in SUV.
The Range Rover comes with a wealth of standard features, including Land Rover's InControl Touch Pro Duo 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 just the basics. Going further, buyers have multiple wheel choices in various sizes, numerous exterior color options, and leather and wood trim packages. You can even add unusual luxuries, such as massaging front seats, customizable ambient lighting, and a refrigerator beneath the front 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 2019 Land Rover Range Rover for you.

Should I lease or buy a 2019 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.
