2002 Land Rover Range Rover Overview

By Cars.com Editors
Vehicle Overview
Details on 2002 changes for the largest and most costly model from Land Rover are not yet available. With a 222-horsepower, 4.6-liter V-8 engine, the Range Rover has a four-speed-automatic transmission and comes in SE and HSE trims. Five occupants fit inside and enjoy leather upholstery and wood interior trim. Side-impact airbags are standard for the front seats.

A satellite-based navigation system is standard on the HSE and optional on the SE. Plotting courses on both paved roads and offroad terrain, the system is capable of dropping what Land Rover calls “digital bread crumbs” that allow the driver to retrace the previous route. Ford recently acquired Land Rover from BMW and added the British automaker to its Premier Automotive Group, which includes Aston Martin, Jaguar, Lincoln, Mercury and Volvo.



Exterior
The Range Rover uses body-on-frame construction and a ladder-type steel frame. Body panels are made of weight-saving aluminum alloy or zinc-coated steel. The rear window swings up, and the tailgate drops down. In this four-door SUV, the spare tire stores inside and underneath the cargo floor. The SE wagon has 16-inch tires, and the HSE runs on 18-inchers. The overall length and width are similar to the Land Rover Discovery Series II, but the Range Rover rides a longer wheelbase at 108.1 inches.

Interior
You expect luxury in the Range Rover, and you get it, with its aromatic leather upholstery, wood trim and roomy interior. Naturally, superior audio is part of the luxury experience. The Range Rover SE has a 300-watt Alpine unit with 12 speakers and a six-CD changer, while the HSE uses a 460-watt six-speaker system.



Under the Hood
A 222-horsepower, 4.6-liter V-8 engine teams with a four-speed-automatic transmission in all Range Rovers. Permanently engaged four-wheel drive splits power among the wheels as needed for maintaining traction and includes a Low range for crawling up and down mountains and other offroad obstacles. Four-wheel traction control is standard. The Range Rover’s air suspension automatically lowers the vehicle for easier entry and exit, and it adjusts ride height to suit the vehicle’s speed and driving conditions. All-disc antilock brakes and side-impact airbags are standard.

My second Rover, that says it all.

Like the title states this is my second Rover. My first was a "99 HSE. I love these things. Very nice ride, good performance, classic style, and comfortable. The only down side is the fuel economy. ... Read full review

Rover all over

by Rover Nut from Chicago on February 1, 2012

I love the Rangie, hard to believe that a few years ago these were 65k and now they can be had for 6k. Yes they will need maintenance, but do that and you 'll be able to go anywhere you want in ... Read full review

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.
