If you’re looking for information on a newer Land Rover Range Rover, we’ve published an updated review: 2019 Land Rover Range Rover Review
For a few decades now, the Range Rover has been revered as one of the best off-road vehicles out there. But it’s also evolved into an innovative, luxurious SUV while still maintaining its rugged heritage. We’ve nailed down five reasons to consider buying the magnificent, refined 2016 Range Rover.
Every single aspect of the Range Rover is carefully constructed with the highest detail. Preparing for a road trip? A hands-free lift gate is always useful. The vehicle’s all-aluminum body is now lighter than before, but it’s also longer, gaining an extra 4.7 inches of legroom, which taller passengers will appreciate.
Shifting to the road, the Terrain Response system has enormous capability in any environment or weather situation you may encounter. Fancy and functional, there isn’t much this SUV can’t do.
Engines with Efficiency
The Range Rover’s base 340-horsepower engine is rated at 23 miles per gallon on the highway, a pretty impressive figure. However, our HSE Td6 test car has a 3.0-liter V6 turbocharged diesel engine, which is good for 254 hp and returns 28 mpg hwy, an amazing number considering its size and weight. With power and efficiency, the Range Rover gives you the best of both worlds.
By the way, there’s also an optional 550-hp V8 that just devours the road. See the 2016 Land Rover Range Rover models for sale near you
Inside, you’ll marvel at luxury and refinement at its absolute best. Oxford-leather 10-way power front seats and tri-zone climate control provide unbelievable comfort, while the standard dual LCD screens offer infotainment and other functions. Our Td6 test model boasts an 825-watt Meridian premium sound system and a panoramic moonroof.
Put simply, the Range Rover is second to none in cabin quality.
The Range Rover design team let their imagination run free, and they didn’t fail to execute. Features include 19-inch wheels (20-in on our Td6 test car), a special solar windshield glass, a leather-wrapped heated steering wheel and adjustable air suspension.
Did we mention that all of that comes standard? Customizations and upgrades are practically endless. We especially like our Td6’s Vision Assist package, which has a surround camera and a blind spot monitoring system.
Any Pavement, Any Time
It’s well-known what a Range Rover can do off-road, but it’s also strikingly capable on the pavement. You wouldn’t know you’re in an SUV when handling turns. The Rover remains fairly smooth over bumps, and it has an array of protective features like Roll Stability Control and Cornering Brake Control.
But with sufficient power in your back pocket, it’s tempting to throw out caution and put the pedal to the metal. The Range Rover’s 4-wheel drive and 8-speed automatic will deliver absolutely anywhere.
With a rich, 45-year history, the 2016 Range Rover remains the ultimate do-it-all luxury SUV. Find the closest dealer, and go experience the finest of the finest. Find a Land Rover Range Rover for sale
