2011 Land Rover LR4 Overview
If you’re looking to go off-roading in style and luxury, then you are looking for the stylish and capable 2011 Land Rover LR4.
Powering the 2011 Land Rover LR4 is a 375-horsepower, 5.0-liter V-8, which generates 375 pounds-feet of torque and is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. Four-wheel drive is standard, as is the Terrain Response system which changes the vehicle’s characteristics to accommodate driving conditions such as mud, snow, and pavement. The LR4’s tow rating of 7,716 pounds and payload rating of 1,670 pounds leads those competitors like the BMW X5 and Lexus GX460 by a wide margin. Fuel economy is rated at 12 mpg in the city and 17 mpg on the highway.
Standard 19-inch wheels fill out the 2011 LR4’s stance, but if those aren’t enough a set of 20-inch wheels are also available. Halogen headlamps come standard, while an available set of bi-xenon units help to give this Land Rover a more expensive and high-tech appearance. The electronic air suspension allows the driver to adjust features like ride height when needed, in order to clear obstacles. The LR4 also features hill start assist and hill descent control systems which provide electronic assistance when navigating tough and slippery terrain.
The features list begins up front with both heated leather seats and a heated steering wheel which make this interior inviting. The LR4’s interior has a premium feel to it, starting with door inserts and center console trim pieces that are made of beautifully finished straight-grained walnut wood, or a black lacquer finish is also available as a no-cost option. The LR4 covers you when it comes to entertainment as well, with a standard 240-watt Harman Kardon audio system with nine speakers and an auxiliary input, or an optional 480-watt Harman Kardon stereo with 14 speakers and rear headphones. Technology like HD and satellite radio, navigation system, and a DVD entertainment system are also available. A wireless cell-phone link is now standard for 2011.
The 2011 LR4 comes with helpful safety features like front and rear parking aids as well as a rearview camera standard on most models. An available five-camera system provides full 360-degree visibility for tight maneuvering, and even includes trailer motion prediction to assist those less accustomed to backing up while hitched. Additional safety features include antilock brakes, an electronic stability system with trailer stability assist, and a full suite of airbags which ensure maximum passenger protection.
Don’t let the sleek exterior and refined interior fool you. The 2011 Land Rover LR4 is one mean off-roading machine.
