INTRO TO THE 2012 LAND ROVER LR4 VEHICLE
The seven-passenger Land Rover LR4 is a decadent sport utility vehicle inspired by true off-road capability and luxurious appointments. But therein lays the caveat: While this expensive SUV can handle just about any rugged terrain, your nerves might not if vehicular damage is involved.
I drove a 2012 Land Rover LR4 with the standard direct-injection 375-horsepower 5-liter engine and 375 pound-feet of torque. The transmission featured a six-speed automatic CommandShift with Normal, Sport and Manual shift modes and Land Rover’s permanent four-wheel drive system called 4ETC. Available in one trim with HSE and HSE LUX packages, my test drive cam with the following standard highlights: leather upholstery; interior walnut trim; leather-wrapped steering wheel with mounted controls; dual-zone climate control; asymmetrical split tailgate; alpine roof with sunblind and a moonroof; center cooling box; nineteen-inch alloy wheels; rain-sensing wipers; rear parking sensors; seven-inch touch-screen; Bluetooth; and a USB port and auxiliary input jack. Price lands at $48,900. Additional packages and options included $750 XM Radio and HD radio services, a $1,200 Vision Assist for HSE LUX Package (a five-camera surround system and Adaptive Front Headlights), and a $9,225 7 Seat Comfort HSE LUX Package (upgraded leather upholstery and climate system, eight-way power driver’s seat, seventeen-speaker Harmon Kardon audio system). Total price for my test drive was $60,175.
Competitors are best determined by your driving purpose. The BMW X5 or Mercedes-Benz GL-Class also SUV suburbia showboats, while the VW Touareg is more known for its put-to-the-test capability with good looks and refinement as strong second.
