2014 Land Rover LR4 Review, Price, Specs and Concept – Welcome to Neocarsuv.com, we will provide the latest information about the Land Rover LR4. 2014 Land Rover LR4 concept is one brand new car from Land Rover that was released in 2014. We will also review about the price, interior, exterior and engine of the 2014 Land Rover LR4.
Now, the 2014 Land Rover LR4 ranks 14 out of 19 Luxury Midsize SUVs. This ranking is based on our analysis of published reviews and test drives of the Land Rover LR4, as well as reliability and safety data.
With either five or seven passenger seating, the LR4’s cabin is refined and quiet, with excellent comfort for the first and second rows, even for taller occupants. The ride is rather plush as well.
Hill Start Assist, Gradient Acceleration Control, and Terrain Response systems all come together in the 2013 LR4 to deliver on the SUV’s rugged underpinnings, as well as the four-corner height-adjustable air suspension. Impressively capable on the trails, on a wide variety of surfaces the Terrain Response even has specific settings for many conditions, like “mud and ruts” or “sand and dunes”.
Put down the pitchforks and snuff the torches, everyone. The single-speed transfer case in the refreshed-for-2014 Land Rover LR4 is merely an option. As Land Rover judiciously states, “some customers do not need to fully exploit the LR4’s off-road capabilities.” For those committed to testing the outer reaches of the LR4’s off-road prowess, the tried and true two-speed unit with low-range is still available. This is the sentiment at the heart of the LR4’s face lift: optimized for urban comfort, perhaps at the expense of off-road prowess.

Overall, test drivers think the Land Rover LR4 has a spacious cabin with excellent materials. The LR4 has standard seating for five, and reviewers say that the first and second rows are both roomy and comfortable. A third-row seat is optional, which brings the seating capacity to seven, and with the rear rows folded, the LR4 offers great cargo space for the class. Standard features include a rearview camera, Bluetooth and two USB ports, and optional features include a rear-seat entertainment system with wireless headphones and a navigation system. The interior receives some criticism for hard to read gauges, as well as its touch-screen infotainment system, which test drivers think makes some settings difficult to access.
Driver assistance, comfort, and safety features for the 2014 include Land Rover’s Wade Sensing fording technology, blind-spot monitoring, collision alert, rear cross-traffic detection, and a pair of outboard-facing cameras. Two Meridian-branded audio systems will be available: an eight-speaker, 380-watt setup and an 825-watt surround system with 17 speakers because as all true audiophiles know, when it comes to accurate sound reproduction, the speaker count means everything.
Standard features on the 2014 Land Rover LR4 include Bluetooth, two USB ports and a standard 380-watt Meridian sound system. Optional features include a navigation system and a rear-seat entertainment system with wireless headphones. An available multi-camera system gives the driver a view of the area around the LR4 while parking.
To make sure the new hardware isn’t wasted underneath the same old exterior, the LR4 gets a new grille, front bumper, headlamps, and daytime running lights augmented with the requisite LED signature. Two new wheel designs keep the rolling stock fresh, and the Black design pack returns for 2014, complete with its own 19- or 20-inch aluminum wheels.
For 2014, the Land Rover LR4 has a new engine and transmission. A supercharged 3.0-liter V6 that makes 340 horsepower is standard, which is mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. According to the EPA, the LR4 gets 14/19 mpg city/highway. While that’s better than the 2013 model’s fuel economy estimates of 12/17 mpg city/highway, the LR4’s fuel economy still isn’t great for its class.
As tall and boxy as it is, the 2014 Land Rover LR4 is nonetheless graceful in its own way. Steering is a bit numb and slow on the road, but is very controllable, as is the chassis. Four-wheel drive makes the LR4 stable in bad weather, though the nearly 6,000-pound vehicle does still require grip to slow and turn. This year, the 5.0-liter V-8 has been replaced by a supercharged 3.0-liter V-6, capable of producing 340 horspower and 332-lb/ft of torque. The six-speed automatic transmission has also been replaced by an eight-speed automatic.
Gone, too, is Land Rover’s 5.0-liter V-8, which is being replaced by Jaguar Land Rover’s ever-more-ubiquitous supercharged 3.0-liter V-6, while a ZF-sourced eight-speed automatic will take over for the six-speed unit. The 3.0-liter supercharged mill is rated for 336 horsepower and 332 lb-ft of torque, and Land Rover is claiming a 0-to-60-mph time of 7.7 seconds and a top speed of 121 mph. (The last LR4 we tested featured the V-8 and managed a 0–60 time of 6.6 seconds.) The new engine gets stop-start functionality to aid efficiency, and Land Rover estimates the new LR4 will return 20 mpg in combined driving. In markets where diesel-powered Land Rovers are available to clarify, that’s not here the 3.0-liter turbo-diesel will carry over.
