land rover lr4 for lease
land rover lr4The LR4 is vain to sell at a large luxury sedan, its mission remains essentially utilitarian in the eyes of its builder.This explains her figure very square and very high ability to optimize the interior. In its interior, there are a lot ofstorage space and clever little gadgets plus a posh presentation. Its 5.0-liter V8 engine work in perfect harmony with anintegral cog in a very sophisticated electronic management.For several decades, Land Rover is known for building vehicles at once luxurious, comfortable, indestructible and reliability ...very random! We return to this point later in our analysis. For now, have fun!
LAND ROVER LR4 Models and specifications
People who like the curvaceous lines of the Infiniti FX or Porsche Cayenne have little chance to appreciate those of a Land Rover LR4. True to the tradition of the brand, 4x4 displays sharp angles that are inconsistent with the dictates of modernism but which undeniably add the impression of solidity. Yet with the years, the LR4 (before 2010 it was called LR3) has gained in refinement and remains, despite some obsolescence, a charm.
At the same time it changed its name, Land Rover saw its interior facelift, which made him the most good. Henceforth, the buttons are large and easily manipulated and, more importantly, it has revised their numbers downward without altering their ease of understanding. The design echoes the angles of the body and pleasing result and frankly ... in my eye at least! One thing is sure, the quality of assembly and materials can not be faulted. You really feel in the presence of a luxury vehicle. Note however that we did not find the auxiliary input jack (1 / 8 inch). There must be one. After all, the vehicle tries to cost over $ 74 000 ...
When quality is visibleThe interior, very large, is quite difficult to achieve since the LR4 is leggy. But once made, the total happiness as we have shows a small round-trip Montreal-Quebec. The front seats are comfortable and above the driving position is high, which improves visibility all around (which is excellent, except when the head restraints in the third row seats are raised) and increases the feeling of invulnerability . Having handled a few commands directly from Ford, the former owner of Land Rover (turn signal lever and the windscreen wipers and power windows buttons) is not unpleasant enough to make us shun our happiness.
People taking place in the second row are not to be pitied, either. They are entitled to the seats comfortable but the fact that we can not bend their record may be prejudicial to the happiness of some people. Of course, space for legs and head is phenomenal. The same remarks apply to the third row seats, much more difficult to achieve. The plot thickens when it comes to handling these two seats. Mechanism as lousy, its hard to beat. Already it would be unconscionable to force, pulling, pushing and swearing in as a low-end car, its downright indecent in a vehicle claiming to be luxurious. In addition, once those seats up, there is hardly more space in the trunk (280 liters, which is less than a smart ...) The best way not to find themselves locked in an institution for depressive people is to use the least possible.
One of the many peculiarities of the LR4 is a asymmetric tailgate has two openings. I do not know if it is only an aesthetic trick but succeeded! Once the flap down and lower the liftgate, one is faced with a gaping opening that overlooks a truly impressive space, provided they had the good idea of ??fucking the third row seats into the floor. When all files are cuts, we end up with an interesting gap of 2560 liters.
Igloo, igloo, igloo ...Mechanical side, we did not complicate life with Land Rover! One engine is offered but not whatever. This is a 5.0-liter V8 to 375 horses and as many foot-pounds of torque. This engine is powerful enough to offer solid performance (0-100 in under 9 seconds for a vehicle of nearly 2600 pounds) and a fuel consumption of well contained 11.6 litres/100 km. Well contained on a straight road, flat with a tailwind and 90 km / h ... on our journey to Quebec, has a constant speed of 110 km / h, we obtained an average of 13.8. In urban use only, were talking easily 17 or 18. So imagine when the car pulls a trailer of 7716 pounds (3500 kilograms) or sporty driving ...
The six-speed automatic transmission works smoothly with a large but mostly-wheel drive enthusiasts who are interested in Land Rover. With its approach angle of 37.2 degrees, departure of 29.6 degrees and 27.9 degrees ventral, its ground clearance of 9.4 inches (240 mm) and its ability to ride in 27.6 inches (700 mm) of water, the LR4 is not in nearly so. Tries pretty hard on a track during an event last fall, Land Rover, the LR4 impressed us with its off-road capabilities. The driver can rely on the Terrain Response system, which was copied by many other manufacturers. This system is managed by a large button on the dashboard and allows to choose between several types of terrain. In barring one or two differential and select low range, it is possible to move almost everywhere and the hand of man has yet set foot, to paraphrase Captain Patenaude! It suffices to look under a LR4 (thank you my friend Ghyslain Lavallee and his employees of the garage and Lavallee Roch Son of Granby) to see that all parts are made for heavy work and to travel off-road (Plate metal, active suspensions to adjust the height of the vehicle, exhaust pipes and air conditioning / heating well protected, suspensions very, very solid, etc.). However, we saw a little son duvet protected, behind the left rear tire. Bizarre.
Question $ $ $ $On the road, there was no evidence of any case has a sports car even though the LR4 clings tenaciously to the bitumen, huge thank you to P225/50R20 Pirelli Scorpion Zero ($$$$) our test vehicle . However, because of its high center of gravity, there is considerable body roll in cornering. At least the direction is very precise for an SUV. Needless to mention that with his very square shapes and height, the LR4 is rather sensitive to crosswinds, but weve seen worse.
The Land Rover LR4 is addressed clearly not a majority of people. Its price, already elitist (it starts at over $ 60,000), climbs very quickly because of the options. And then theres maintenance, costs assuredly huge. And if that was not enough, we must be prepared to live with a vehicle that is likely to abandon you when times are less well chosen. Indeed, Land Rover has languished in the depths of the ranking JD Power, a firm specializing in research on reliability. This explains why people do not buy the wiser one Land Rover, LR4 or another. They praise him. This is the only way to manage them after a few years without having to undergo too much financial loss. Its a shame. Such a shame.
