2015 Land Rover Range Rover Preview

By ,

Pros: In spite of weighing-in at close to two tons, the 2015 Land Rover Range Rover is capable of breathtaking acceleration. In addition, it provides unrivalled off-road skills. It offers a level of luxury and comfort that matches its prestige.

Cons: Alas, the 2015 Range rover is not without fault. Starting with a V8 version that is always thirsty. But, when one can afford such an enormous vehicle, is this really an issue? The third-row seating is not really accessible for adults; it is better suited for children. In addition, as is the case for most Land Rover products, reliability remains an Achilles Heel.
