2000 Land Rover Range Rover Overview

By Cars.com Editors
Vehicle Overview
The Range Rover 4.0 SE and 4.6 HSE are the more expensive models in Land Rover showrooms. They are built in England by Rover, which is owned by BMW but maintains a separate model range and identity. Range Rover was the first of the luxury sport utility vehicles in the United States when it arrived in 1987, offering a blend of opulence and off-road capability that caught the attention of well-heeled buyers. Rover's success stateside with luxury 4 x 4s encouraged several imitators, and the list continues to grow.

Interior
Aromatic leather upholstery and attractive wood trim greet occupants in the roomy interior, which holds five people. Side-impact airbags, as well as the required front airbags, protect front-seat occupants. Interior amenities include a standard sound system that is a 300-watt Alpine unit with 12 speakers and a six-disc CD changer, and the 10-way, power-controlled driver-seat adjustment.

Exterior
Range Rover has a body-on-frame design with body panels made of weight-saving aluminum alloy or zinc-coated steel and a ladder-type steel frame. The rear window swings up and the tailgate drops down, and the spare tire is secluded below the vehicle. SE models come with 16-inch tires and HSE models ride 18-inchers.

Under the Hood
The SE uses a 188-horsepower, 4.0-liter V-8, and the HSE has a 222-horsepower, 4.6-liter V-8. Both come with a four-speed automatic transmission and permanently engaged 4WD that splits power among the wheels as needed for best t...

Both come with a four-speed automatic transmission and permanently engaged 4WD that splits power among the wheels as needed for best traction. The 4WD system also has a low range for crawling up and down mountains, and four-wheel traction control. A standard air suspension automatically lowers the vehicle for easier driver entry and exit and adjusts ride height to suit vehicle speed and driving conditions.

Performance
Only the Hummer exceeds Range Rover's off-road capabilities, but most buyers in the luxury end of the SUV market aren't interested in bouncing over rocks in the wilderness. The arrival of several competitors, with more on the way, has pushed the Range Rover out of the limelight. It remains a rare breed that is equally at home at the Rubicon Trail or at the Ritz.

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
