It seems that the premium SUV market is increasingly becoming crowded with each passing day. But most likely there isn’t any other brand that has so much credibility and rich repute that Land Rover for its intricate combination of luxury with genuine on-road and off-road capability.
Even with the rise in the number of choices, the LR4 has for a long time been the ultimate choice for many SUV lovers, save for those who can’t afford it but not because they didn’t like it. As you can see on http://automobilereleasedates.com/ Its capability ranges from pulling off a carpool duty, climbing a snow-covered trail to that getaway cabin.
This amazing capability is due to the wide range of versatility made possible through the available three-row seating, powerful supercharged V6, serious off-roading hardware and at least a more mindful fuel consumption rating. The 2016 Land Rover LR4 continues with the extravagant spree of a pure luxury vehicle.
In spite of the glory and applause I have accorded the LR4, it is quite imperative to ponder how much you are in need of a formidable off-road machine like it. There is a big reason why the vehicle weighs as much as 3,000kgs, thereby resulting in some definite compromises especially on performance, pavement maneuverability and performance.
That said, you might consider checking other three-row crossovers before settling on the LR4 in terms of luxury and every day on-pavement companions. A case in point is the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class which is perhaps the nearest competitor in terms of third-row space, but costs more. Others are the Infiniti QX60 and Acura MDX which are loaded with high-tech features but score poorer in terms of third rows.
The upcoming 2016 Land Rover LR4 is a midsize luxury crossover available in three trims: base, HSE, and HSE Lux. Standard seating enables for a five-passenger configuration while optionally available is the third row of seat for a maximum of eight passengers.
There is an extensive list of available features in the LR4 which include an adaptive air suspension, 19-inch alloy wheels, front and rear foglights, side steps, automatic wipers, heated exterior mirrors, fixed rear “Alpine” sunroof, a power front sunroof, rear parking sensors and rear privacy glass. Moving inside, you’ll find leather upholstery, dual-zone automatic climate control, eight-way power front seats, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, a rearview camera, Bluetooth audio and phone connectivity, a 7-inch touchscreen display, and an 11-speaker Meridian audio system with a USB/iPod interface, a CD player, and an auxiliary audio jack. The 7 Seat Comfort package adds a 50/50-split-folding third-row seat that includes an extra extension of the side curtain airbags and map lights, and rear climate controls and ducts.
Going to the LR4 HSE brings different xenon headlights, 19-inch alloy wheels, LED running lights, power-folding mirrors, front parking sensors, keyless ignition and entry, voice controls, the 7 Seat Comfort package, and a navigation system,. The Climate Comfort option package, available on both the base and HSE trims, bundles heated windshield washer jets, a heated windshield, a heated steering wheel and heated front and second-row seats.
At the top of the food chain is the 2016 Land Rover LR4 HSE Lux, which incorporates all of the previous equipment and adds upgraded leather upholstery and trim, unique 19-inch alloy wheels, a driver seat with power-adjustable side bolsters, a power-adjustable steering wheel, driver memory settings, interior ambient lighting, an upgraded 17-speaker Meridian surround-sound audio system and a center console cooler box.
Options on the HSE and HSE Lux include a rear-seat entertainment system, adaptive cruise control, and the Vision Assist package, which adds automatic high-beam control, adaptive xenon headlights, and blind spot warning system with rear cross-traffic alert, and 360-degree-view camera system.
According to http://releasedatesofcars.com/ the new 2016 Land Rover LR4 will be powered by a 3.0L supercharged V6 diesel engine capable of generating over 340 hp and 332 pounds of torque. The tweaked engine will be mated to an eight-speed auto transmission system. The auto stop-start feature is available as a standard feature and is capable of shutting down the engine for purposes of conserving the fuel especially in traffic.
Due to the unavailable EPA fuel ratings for the 2016 model, I will offer the previous model’s ratings as the basis of 2016 Land Rover LR4 projection. The 2015 Land Rover LR4 is rated at 15/19/16 mpg in the city/highway/combined. We should expect better EPA ratings for the 2016 model once they are finalized.
When adequately equipped, the new LR4 is capable of towing 7,700lbs. Also standard is the full-time AWD system.
We should expect to see some prototypes of the vehicle somewhere before the close of the year. The 2016 Land Rover LR4 will most probably cost about $54,760 once it debuts.
The vehicle will certainly be the best replacement for the LR2 or the Freelander.
