Driving a 2010 Land Rover LR4 is quite different than driving an LR3. The immediate differences are a comparative abundance of power, more confidence-inspiring handling, and slightly improved steering response. Of course the last two points are almost moot when it comes to the nearly-6000 pound SUV's road manners, but any improvement is welcome in this class. The few owners who manage to take the LR4 off-road will certainly appreciate the available surround camera system, adjustable air suspension and terrain response system. For the rest of the owners, these systems provide piece of mind and won't detract from on-road manners.
When Can I Buy One?
Land Rover LR4s should start trickling into dealers this month with an official on-sale date of September 1st. Pricing starts at $48,100 and the LR4 can be optioned up past $63,000. The $3650 HSE package seems like a worthy upgrade as it includes heated front and rear seats, steering wheel, washer jets, as well as navigation, Bluetooth integration for cell phones, and 19-inch wheels. Those looking for 20-inch wheels will have to shell out an additional $2500.
