Used Car: 2010 Land Rover Range Rover Review
The 2010 Land Rover Range Rover is a capable off-roader that also offers impressive performance on paved roads. For an SUV with rock-crawling ability and luxury prestige, few 2010 large SUVs can do better.
The 2010 Land Rover Range Rover is ranked:
When it was new, reviewers were impressed with the 2010 Land Rover Range Rover’s handling on both freeways and rough terrain. They also liked the power provided by the Range Rover’s available engines. However, as a used SUV, the Range Rover may give some buyers pause since its reliability score is lower than the class average.
The engine in the base 2010 Range Rover HSE is a 375-horsepower V8 that reviewers said is plenty powerful. Still, most preferred the Supercharged trim, which puts out 510 horsepower and moves the Range Rover with authority. Fuel economy with either engine is 12/18 mpg city/highway, which is a bit low for the class. Full-time four-wheel drive is standard, as well as an adjustable suspension system with specific settings for different types of terrain. The Range Rover can tow up to 7,716 pounds, which is about average. Cargo capacity with the rear seats folded is 74.2 cubic feet, which is a bit lower than in the Range Rover’s more cavernous competitors.
Reviewers said the Range Rover’s five seats were generally comfortable and spacious. They were especially impressed with the high-quality interior materials. Standard equipment includes leather upholstery, a 14-speaker stereo, Bluetooth, navigation, a heated steering wheel, heated front and rear seats, a rearview camera, front and rear parking sensors and tri-zone climate control.
Other Cars to Consider
If you’re looking for something with more everyday utility, consider the 2010 Lexus LX. The LX can seat up to eight, carry more cargo and tow larger loads. It isn’t quite as opulent as the Range Rover, but critics said it’s still plenty luxurious. The LX also has the strongest reliability score in the class.
Another model to consider is the 2010 Cadillac Escalade. The Escalade isn’t the off-roader that the Range Rover is, but reviewers loved the way it performs on pavement. With the ability to seat up to eight and carry a lot more cargo, the less expensive Escalade is a more practical alternative that still offers plenty of luxury.
