2009 Land Rover Range Rover Reviews

Vehicle Overview
Land Rover's Range Rover carries over largely unchanged from its 2008 predecessor. The SUV is offered with a supercharged V-8 or a naturally aspirated V-8, both derived from Jaguar engines that operate using drive-by-wire throttle control. It occupies a unique corner of the market; its closest competitor is the Mercedes-Benz G-Class.

The Range Rover Sport model is listed separately in the Cars.com Research section.


New for 2009
The Range Rover has no significant changes, though it does receive three new colors, softer leather in its instrument panel and new wheel designs.

Exterior
Built on a 113.4-inch wheelbase, the Range Rover is 195.8 inches long overall, 77 inches wide and 74.9 inches tall. Ground clearance measures 8.7 inches, but that can rise to 11 inches for offroad treks. The SUV's wading depth is 27.6 inches and its approach angle is 29 degrees (34 degrees for off-roading).

  • Clamshell hood
  • Horizontally split tailgate
  • 19- or 20-inch alloy wheels


Interior
The Range Rover seats up to five. The interior can be trimmed in luxurious leather and genuine wood. The Range Rover has 38.9 inches of legroom in the front seats and 35.5 in the rear.
  • Standard three-zone automatic air conditioning
  • Standard touch-screen navigation with Bluetooth compatibility
  • Optional backseat DVD entertainment system
  • Optional rearview camera
  • Optional stainless steel pedals


Under the Hood
Two V-8s are available. The normally aspirated 4.4-liter V-8 produces 305 horsepower and 325 pounds-feet of torque. Land Rover also offers a supercharged 4.2-liter V-8 that generates 400 hp and delivers 420 pounds-feet of torque.
  • Six-speed automatic transmission
  • Terrain Response adjusts SUV's reaction to various types of terrain


Safety
  • Nine standard airbags (including front-impact, seat-mounted side-impact front airbags, side curtain airbags for all outboard occupants and a driver's knee airbag)

Warranties Explained

Bumper-to-Bumper

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.

Powertrain

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.

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).

Free Scheduled Maintenance

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.
