2019 Land Rover Range Rover Review: Have Your Cake And Eat It, Too

by Gabe Beita Kiser

Once a symbol of the hard-working English farmer, the Land Rover Range Rover has become a pop culture icon thanks to hordes of celebrity owners singing its praises and leaving photos all over their social media channels in recent years. The 2019 model has been around since 2012, but despite its age is still one of the most luxurious ways of getting from A to B. Updated for the new year with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration, added safety features, and a standard panoramic sunroof, there are six models on offer - and you can choose between three engines, with the supercharged gasoline V6 and V8 units available in two different states of tune, while a turbo-diesel V6 is available for those with 'alternative' preferences when it comes to their choice of fuel. The Range Rover doesn't leave anything to the imagination; it's a car for people who've arrived, and this is made abundantly clear by sky-high asking prices. It goes up against the likes of BMW's newly redesigned X5 and Porsche Cayenne while offering the off-road ability of a Toyota Land Cruiser.

2019 Land Rover Range Rover Changes: 🚙What’s the difference vs 2018 Range Rover?

Land Rover has kept the fourth-generation Range Rover for six, going on seven years now, through the magic of updates, and 2019 is no different. The 2019 Range Rover gets a host of new tech features such as the no-cost smartphone package, which sees the addition of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration. All models now get to enjoy a panoramic sunroof, and Land Rover has finely tuned the wade-sensing system to better inform the driver when crossing bodies of water. A surround-view camera system and lane-centering assist are new optional items, and the adaptive cruise control now features steering assist.

Pros and Cons

  • As good on-road as it is off
  • Long wheelbase version offers lots of space
  • Powerful diesel engine
  • As luxurious as ever
  • Characterful gasoline engines
  • Luxury that belies its age
  • Larger wheels don't do the ride quality any favors
  • Lackluster standard engine
  • You have to pay large amounts for high luxury
  • Heavy weight hinders all-round performance and handling

Range Rover Exterior

The 2019 Range Rover will look familiar to anyone living in, or close to a 1% area; it's an imposing monolith of a car that doesn't try to hide the fact that it's expensive and important. Slim-line headlights and the famous hexagonal grille combine contemporary and old in harmony, while the solid-body line ends with a muscular rear.

Standard exterior features for 2019 include rain-sensing window wipers, a sliding panoramic roof, as well as side window privacy glass. The lighting system consists of auto headlights with daytime running lights, LED taillights which feature follow me home tech, and finally, a set of auto-dimming side-view mirrors. The base model rolls on a set of 19-inch split-spoke wheels, the HSE model gets 20-inch 12-spoke wheels, and the Supercharged and subsequent models sport 21-inch efforts in various finishes and designs. The face of the base model gets a gloss black mesh grille with Shadow Atlas foil and premium LED headlights with signature daytime running lights. The exterior of the base model also features satin-finish body-colored trim. The HSE features an Atlas grille mesh foil with a Narvic Black frame. Front fog lights get added to the Autobiography. The SVAutobiography models change things up with an exclusive Graphite Atlas grille with bright chrome inserts.

Dimensions

As a full-size luxury SUV, you'd expect the 2019 Range Rover to take up some space - and, you'd be correct. The Range Rover looks dominant wherever it goes thanks to a total length of 196.8 inches in short-wheelbase format, growing to 204.7 inches for the long-wheelbase car, while both configurations have a total width of 86.6 inches with the mirrors extended and sit 73.5 inches tall; this figure drops by 1.9 inches when easy access mode is enabled. Wheelbase measurements are 115 inches for the SWB, and 122.8 inches for the LWB. These dimensions are comparable to the BMW X5, which is slightly wider, and the Toyota Landcruiser, which is somewhat taller. Off-road junkies will be pleased to hear that the standard ground clearance of 8.7 inches can be raised to a serious 11.6 when hitting the rough stuff, and the SWB car has an approach/ramp/departure angle measurement of 29.7/28.2/27.6 degrees, besting the BMW X5. The big Brit weighs between 4,941 and 5,728 pounds depending on wheelbase and engine configuration.

  • Wheelbase 115.0 in
  • Height 73.6 in
  • Max Width 78.1 in
  • Front Width 66.6 in
  • Rear Width 66.3 in

Exterior Colors

Gone are the days when the Range Rover was only available in white, green and that weird orange: these days a Range Rover is more customizable than a 1993 Honda Civic running a Spoon engine with a Motec exhaust, which is especially true when you take a look at the exterior paint options. Standard colors include favorites like Narvik Black and Fuji White as well as metallic hues such as Firenze Red, Indus Silver, and Byron Blue, while the premium metallic range consists of Carpathian Gray, Silicon Silver, and Aruba. Land Rover's Special Vehicle Operations department takes the color options to a whole new level, and provide match-to-sample paint services, which means you can paint your Range Rover in any color of your choosing. Some examples of SVO colors are Spectral Racing Red, Madagascar Orange, and Verbier Silver, as well as a range of two-tone options. The SVAutobiography Dynamic also gets a unique two-tone option with Firenze Red and a Santorini Black roof - to give it a sportier appeal, despite it being a luxury-focused SUV.

Range Rover Performance

Luxury SUVs are expected to handle and perform like the premium sedans they are slowly starting to replace, which is no easy task, especially for a 5,000 pound AWD off-road barge like the 2019 Range Rover. What Land Rover has done is to simply throw power at their lumbering behemoth in the hopes that it would light a fire under all that steel, leather, and glass, and we're glad to report that it's worked - for the most part. The slowest car in the range, the diesel-powered vehicle, will accelerate to sixty in only 7.5 seconds and will continue on to a top speed of 130 mph. At the other end of the performance scale, supercharged V8 cars will get there in an astonishing 5.1 seconds, a time that would have absolutely stunned English fox hunters of old, while the V6 in the middle of the range reaches 60 in seven seconds flat. The 2019 Range Rover can tow up to 7,716 pounds in almost all configurations.

Engine and Transmission

Technically there are three engines on offer: a supercharged 3.0-liter V6, which is offered as the base engine and develops 340 hp and 332 lb-ft of torque; a 3.0-liter turbocharged V6 turbodiesel that churns out 254 hp and 443 lb-ft of torque; and a supercharged 5.0-liter V8 that develops 518 hp and 461 lb-ft of torque. The supercharged 3.0-liter V6 is offered in a higher state of tune on HSE models where it produces 380 hp and 339 lb-ft of torque, and the big V8 can be had in SVAutobiography Dynamic spec, where it creates 557 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque. The base model V6 lacks some low down grunt, which is precisely where the diesel performs at its best, but the rest of the engine options are absolute bombers, delivering rapid acceleration and sports car-like mid-range acceleration.

All Range Rovers come standard with an eight-speed automatic transmission and selectable AWD system, which offer ultra-smooth shifts and quick transitions into the various gearing modes. Where the Range Rover separates itself from rivals such as the BMW is in its real-world off-roading capability: a two-speed transmission with an electronic center differential combined with Land Rover's all-terrain response traction system means you'll be able to cross a river while enjoying a slice of cake with no hassles.

Handling and Driving Impressions

Driving the 2019 Range Rover is so calming and relaxed, that you'd think you were sitting in your own living room listening to your favorite Josh Groban track. On a serious note, the Range Rover offers a soft ride and it soaks up the bumps will aplomb if you stick to the standard-sized wheels, as the 22-inch alloys tend to crash through road imperfections. Make no mistake - the Range Rover might be quick in a straight line, but you are forced to take it easy when cornering. Steering is precise enough and weighs up reasonably well at higher speeds, but there's no getting around the fact that 5,000-odd pounds of car lifted 8.7 inches above the ground - you can be sure it's going to want to lean over on its sides. Additionally, the air suspension can be more than just a little wallowy in its softer settings. Drive like a reasonable person, and the Range Rover will reward you with a compliant and pleasurable driving experience that might not be as car-like as the BMW X5, but is lightyears ahead of the Toyota Land Cruiser.

Off-road, the Range Rover is in a class of its own: the terrain response system adapts to the type of conditions and matches the demands of the surface. The driving modes include grass/gravel/snow as well as mud, sand, and rock crawl. A maximum wading depth of 35.4 inches and a standard approach/ramp/departure angles of 29.7/28.2/27.6 degrees on SWB models is impressive, but do you really want to risk soaking those mohair floor carpets or polished wheels?

Range Rover Gas Mileage

Gas mileage on the 2019 Range Rover ranges from surprisingly good to "are you sure there isn't a gas leak somewhere." The base engine, a supercharged V6, will return 17/23/19 mpg city/highway/combined, and the low-output supercharged V8 will get 21/16/18 mpg. The most fuel-efficient model is the turbodiesel in SWB configuration: it will get 22/28/24 mpg, surprisingly good for a bulky car such as the Range Rover. For those who own private oil fields, the gas mileage figures of the high-output supercharged V8 in LWB guise won't be an issue, at 13/19/15 mpg, which should get you from the 18th hole to the clubhouse without any problems. The 5.7-liter V8 Landcruiser is just as thirsty, with a figure of 13/18/15 mpg. Fuel tank sizes range from 22.7 gallons for the diesel, and 27.3 for the rest of the range. The diesel will travel an estimated 545 miles on a tank, and the most fuel-efficient gasoline engine, the low-output V6, will get you 519 miles.

Range Rover Interior

The interior of the Range Rover is best described as a modern take on a 19th-century smoking lounge; there is a stately feeling to the interior, which has been impeccably curated with a clean, yet bulky, design that convincingly combines off-road bravado with premium luxury. The controls might not be the most user-friendly, but it's a small price to pay for the elegant layout of the dashboard. Even in base form, the Range Rover packs a lot of interior features, such as push-button start, a power liftgate, three-zone climate control, and a rear-view camera system.

Higher up in the range, on the SVAutobiography trims, you're greeted with knurled knobs, a full-length rear center console with a flush-mounted Zenith clock, and even extendable cargo trays finished in the finest wood veneer. The devil is in the intricate details, and it's things like the quilted leather that makes the Range Rover feel so special.

Seating and Interior Space

2019 base models are fitted with 16-way adjustable power seats with manual recline, that offer class-leading comfort and support while cruising down the highway, or when crossing a mountain pass. HSE models get 20 possible adjustments as well as power recline, while top-spec cars are fitted with 24-way adjustable heated and cooled seats with massage functionality. The rear bench seat offers a power recline feature on HSE models and upwards, and also features intelligent seat fold tech which allows you to fold and configure the seating arrangement from the cargo hold. The available executive seats offer wider and deeper cushioning and features a power fold center console, creating a truly luxurious four-seat layout; but, for an even more luxurious experience, the seating count drops to four in the SVAutobiography trims with a full-length center console and individual power seat adjustment and reclining functionality on the LWB. Those who like to enjoy polo matches from the comfort of their cars are also taken care of, because Range Rover offers rear tailgate-mounted seating.

  • Seating capacity
    5-seater
  • Front Leg Room 42.5 in
  • Front Head Room 39.3 in
  • Rear Leg Room 40.2 in
  • Rear Head Room 39.2 in

Interior Colors and Materials

Only the best will do when it comes to interior materials and color options, and characteristically, the Range Rover fails to disappoint. In base form, the large SUV is upholstered in grain leather and is matched up with a Morzine headliner. Leather colors include Ebony, Vintage Tan, and a combination of Ebony and Ivory, amongst others. HSE models get perforated leather or perforated semi-aniline leather seats, while SVAutobiography cars are treated to perforated Windsor leather, quilted for extra luxury, carbon fiber inserts, and a perforated leather headlining. The interior finishes are just as impressive; Land Rover offers a selection of nine different options, some of which are exclusively available on higher-spec cars. The standard Grand Black veneer can be swapped out for Satin Straight Walnut, Black Burl Ash, or even Steel Weave Carbon Fiber. Once again, the SVAutobiography Long Wheelbase steals the show, offering copper-woven carbon fiber trim inserts as model-specific trim, while the headliner is exclusively had in perforated leather.

Range Rover Trunk and Cargo Space

You'll find 31.7 cubic feet of trunk space behind the second-row bench seat on the short-wheelbase car, which grows to 68.6 cubic feet when the back seats are folded down. The long-wheelbase car offers a similar 31.7 cubic feet of space behind the second row of seats, and 75.6 cubic feet with the second row folded down. The optional executive style seats will reduce the minimum storage capacity to 24.5 cubic feet and will also reduce total cargo volume to 68.4 cubic feet. A nifty feature is the intelligent seat cargo mode, which moves the front seats forward while folding the rear seats. Range Rover takes the act of loading cargo and transforms it into an art form: the easy-access mode will drop the rear air suspension to make loading heavy or unwieldy objects that much easier.

Small items can be tucked away in the large center console bin unless you opt for a mini-fridge, and the executive seating in the rear also features a lockable storage bin. Front and rear cupholders will hold enough Hennesy to make all occupants lean in their seats (except the driver of course), and you even get the option of rear fold-out tables on top trims in the rear which offer enough space for a laptop or a healthy helping of caviar.

Range Rover Infotainment and Features

Features

With a starting price of close to $90,000, you'd be entitled to expect an impressive features list, and the 2019 Range Rover delivers. Land Rover has thought it good to include features such as a panoramic sunroof, auto-dimming side mirrors, as well as interior details that include 16-way power-adjustable seats, three-zone climate control, and a power liftgate. The base model gets, LED headlights, lane-departure warning and Land Rover's terrific terrain response off-road system with sand/snow/gravel and many more terrain specific modes. Higher up in the range, hands are kept warm by a heated steering wheel, while keyless entry makes life easier for all, as does the elegant soft door close function. The seats also gain more adjustability and even a massage function. Top of the line models get power-folding side mirrors with memory and approach lighting, four-zone automatic climate control, customizable ambient lighting, surround-view cameras, as well as power rear window sunblinds, a head-up display, and power-closing rear doors for those who don't want to get their hands dirty.

Infotainment

The infotainment system of the 2019 car is more refined and intuitive than ever before. The standard system is comprised of a generously-sized 10-inch display with Land Rover's Touch Pro Duo software, and includes navigation, a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot, InControl Apps, full Android Auto and Apple CarPlay integration, and a series of 12V and USB ports. All of this can be controlled remotely or via voice control. SiriusXM satellite radio and Bluetooth streaming are also included, as is a 13-speaker Meridian sound system. The Meridian surround sound system, found on mid-range models up the speaker count to 19 and fills the cabin with cinema-quality audio. The Meridian Signature Sound System takes things even further, with world-first Trifield 3D technology, 29-speakers, and a dual-channel subwoofer. An optional rear-seat infotainment system features two eight-inch seat-mounted displays or larger 10-inch displays, mounted on articulating arms; both systems come with wireless headphone technology, HDMI, MHL, and USB ports. On paper, the infotainment system might sound impressive, but in reality, the Touch Pro Duo system isn't as quick to respond as some competitors, and a wide range of infotainment settings and options can get overwhelming.

Range Rover Problems and Reliability

As with many other tech-filled luxury cars, the Range Rover has been subjected to a few recalls over the years, with three being issued in the last two years. Just one recall was issued for 2019 models for a crankshaft pulley bolt that might fracture, while two 2018 recalls pertained to the failure of the autonomous braking system and a blank display from the rearview camera. Land Rover covers their Range Rover with a four-year/50,000-mile basic warranty, which includes a six-year corrosion warranty, a four-year/50,000-mile drivetrain warranty as well as four years of roadside assistance.

Range Rover Safety

Neither the IIHS nor NHTSA has rated the 2019 Range Rover. The fact that the king of luxury SUVs hasn't been tested in the US comes as a surprise, considering its popularity on the US market. Despite this, the performance of its namesakes, and an extensive safety features list should put your mind at ease.

Key Safety Features

Land Rover made sure to cover the basics with ten airbags, including side-occupant protection front and rear, a reverse camera, lane departure warning, front and rear parking assistance, and emergency brake assist included across the range. Additional safety features become available when you get inside the HSE, which features blind-spot monitoring, traffic sign recognition, adaptive speed limiting, and driver attention assistance. The list continues with passenger exit warning, a surround camera system, and rear cross-traffic warning. The Autobiography range is the safest of all, with adaptive cruise control and queue assist being standard features. The Range Rover's AWD system is capable of adapting to the terrain by switching between driving modes and controls power delivery and wheelspin in treacherous and slippery conditions.

Verdict: 🏁Is the 2019 Land Rover Range Rover a good SUV?

The Land Rover Range Rover has a reputation to uphold, especially since the third-generation car launched the Range Rover brand into stardom, with superstars like David Beckham and even the Queen of England parking one in their respective garages. The fourth-gen Range Rover has been around since 2012, but has been kept fresh and relevant through constant updates and styling changes, and still provides class-competitive performance and comfort, besting the likes of BMW's X5 in terms of premium quality. The wide range of engines, including a strong turbo diesel unit, gives a flexible range of performance, although the big V8s drink a ton of fuel. Standard safety and infotainment features are impressive, and the whole deal is wrapped up in a package that feels peerless in its levels of luxury. The only downside is an asking price that goes deep into the six-figure mark, but there are few better ways to enjoy the utmost luxury, and still be able to conquer almost any terrain.

🚘What's the Price of the 2019 Land Rover Range Rover?

The Achilles' heel of the 2019 Range Rover has to be its high asking price; the range starts with an eye-watering MSRP of $88,860 and escalates exponentially until you finally enter supercar territory with the top of the range SVAutobiography. The most expensive diesel model, the Td6 HSE SWB, goes for $96,050, and the most potent V6 model will set you back $94,050. It's when you start looking at the V8 models that things go a bit skew. The cheapest variant of the supercharged V8 Range Rover starts at $104,850, and will almost double in price to $207,900 for the V8 Supercharged SVAutobiography LWB. These prices completely overshadow the already high asking price of the BMW X5, which top out in the high $70,000s or the Toyota Land Cruiser, which starts at $85,165.

2019 Land Rover Range Rover Models

The Range Rover can be had in six different trim levels, starting with the standard Range Rover, followed by the HSE, Supercharged, Autobiography, SVAutobiography Dynamic, and finally ends with the SVAutobiography LWB.

Even in base form, the Range Rover offers a lavish driving experience, and includes standard features such as 16-way power seats, a panoramic sunroof, and LED headlights, as well as three-zone climate control, and lane departure warning. You get the option of a turbo-diesel engine or a supercharged gasoline V6, and the whole deal rolls on a set of 19-inch split-spoke wheels. The standard 10-inch infotainment display features Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration and a 13-speaker Meridian sound system.

HSE models are hustled along by a more powerful supercharged V6 engine, now producing 380 hp and get 20-inch 12-spoke wheels, perforated Windsor leather seats with 20-way adjustability, as well as power adjustability in the rear, keyless entry with soft-close doors, and a wide range of active safety systems such as traffic sign recognition, blind-spot monitoring, and more.

The next trim level in the range is called the Supercharged, and it is absolutely loaded. The most significant upgrade has to be the monstrous supercharged V8 that pushes out 518 hp and the option of SWB or LWB configurations. there's lane-departure warning, and side graphics, and auto-dimming rear-view mirror and 21-inch alloy wheels, with many other features not mentioned.

Close to the top sits the Autobiography, which spoils its passengers with 24-way adjustable front seats with a massage function, a 19-speaker sound system, and surround camera system. The Autobiography is also more accomplished off-road thanks to an active rear locking differential and the upgraded Terrain Response 2 system. Inside, the Autobiography gets four-zone climate control and sumptuous perforated semi-aniline seats.

The SVAutobiography Dynamic gets serious: the supercharged V8 gets a power boost and now produces 557 hp, while the exterior is finished off with an exclusive Graphite Atlas grille with bright chrome inserts and chrome door handle surrounds. The seats now feature a quilted pattern. The SVAutobiography Dynamic is exclusively available in SWB configuration.

At the very top sits the SVAutobiography Long Wheelbase, which is offered with mohair mats, deployable tables in the rear, a perforated leather headliner, power closing rear doors as well as a 10-inch back seat infotainment system, and more luxury features than you can imagine.

Additional Packages

If you thought the features list on the top-spec models was impressive, wait until you delve into the options list. Individual features such as a front console mini-fridge, leather headlining, and even rear massage seats are all available. The options continue with more functional options such as the active locking rear differential system, a head-up display, and adaptive cruise control. For the genuinely old-school, Land Rover gives the option of tailgate seating handcrafted out of Windsor and Ebony leather, all wrapped up in an aluminum frame. When it comes to options on the 2019 Range Rover, the sky isn't even the limit.

🚗What Land Rover Range Rover Model Should I Buy?

Since the price of the 2019 Range Rover more than doubles as you climb up the trim ladder, the choice depends on your budget. Even the range-topping car can be optioned out another ten or twenty grand easily. For under $100k, we would suggest going for the SWB HSE with the high-output supercharged V6. This car has more than enough power for any occasion; it is stacked with more features than you're ever likely to use, and it costs half as much as the top of the range SVAutobiography. Tick some options boxes if you really need those mohair floor carpets or rear massage seats.

2019 Land Rover Range Rover vs Toyota Land Cruiser

Unlike the BMW X5, the Toyota Land Cruiser and Land Rover Range Rover share a similar history; both were built to take on the outdoors with rudimentary engineering and minimal comforts, but as the years have passed, both these cars have morphed into five-star hotels on wheels that are still capable off-road machines. The 2019 Landcruiser is a larger car, capable of seating seven, and is arguably more capable off-road; but its 5.7-liter V8 engine is less fuel-efficient and less refined, along with providing far less performance. Its interior cannot come close to that of the Range Rover, neither can its ride and handling characteristics, but with an asking price well below that of even the entry-level Range Rover, the big Toyota offers premium luxury and true off-road capability in a more down to earth and understated package. Still, if it's luxury you're after, the Range Rover is simply one of the best SUVs in existence.

2019 Land Rover Range Rover vs BMW X5

In the face of its competition, the BMW X5 is a relative newcomer to the luxury SUV class, and is technically mid-sized with the X7 taking on the role of full-sized. The 2019 model has gone through a full redesign, which means it gets the latest tech on offer from BMW, including a superior infotainment system and advanced safety features. The top of the line xDrive50i gets a twin-turbocharged 4.4-liter V8 that produces 456 hp and 479 lb-ft of torque, considerably less power than even the low-output V8 found in the Range Rover, but delivers similar gas mileage figures. The BMW feels more like a regular car when driving around town and is a decidedly better handling car. The interior is put together with care and offers a different kind of luxury to that of the big Brit. The German vehicle feels more clinical in its delivery: it's got all the bells and whistles, a premium interior, and excellent road manners and performance, but it lacks the old-world charm and sheer opulence of the Range Rover. The X5's most significant advantage is its price. At $75,750, it's hard to ignore.
