The 2015 Range Rover packs excellent off-road capabilities which are matched with powerful supercharged V6 and V8 engines. The car offers good fuel economy and the interiors are plush and nothing that you wouldn't expect from a luxury SUV. With a price that starts north of $83,000, the car competes against the 2015 Mercedes Benz GL 550 and the 2015 Cadillac Escalade.

The 2015 Land Rover Range Rover comes with a ton of optional packages, which are trim-specific. These packages are the Vision Assist Package, the Driver Assistance Package, the Tow Package, the Rear-seat entertainment package, the Four Zone Climate Comfort Package, and the Rear Executive Class Seating package.

We Recommend

We surely recommend the Autobiography trim. It is surely very expensive, but it ticks all the right boxes. For one, the Range Rover is not exactly a performance machine; it can go fast and do other things, but its main perspective is luxury. And in that sense, this trim works best. 

2015 Land Rover Range Rover Engine and Performance

9.0/10

The 2015 Land Rover Range Rover comes with two engine options. A supercharged 3.0L V6 that puts out 340 horsepower and 332 lb-ft of torque; and a supercharged 5.0L V8 with an output of 510 hp and 461 lb-ft of torque. Both the engines are mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission. 

The car's handling and steering are not among the best in this class. It does not have that much response, and has significant body roll at corners. The car’s ride quality is on the firmer side, and gets worse the larger the tires get. The Range Rover comes with a full-time 4WD. The 2015 Land Rover Range Rover V6 engine has a 0-60 mph time of 6.9 seconds and manages to reach the quarter-mile mark in 14.6 seconds. It has a top speed of 132 mph.

2015 Land Rover Range Rover Interior

8.0/10

The 2015 Land Rover Range Rover’s interior is the epitome of luxury. It’s elegant, with the stitched leather and wooden trim; is spacious, and neatly laid out. The dash is clean, with a minimalistic approach. The fit and finish are excellent and there’s just no room to complain. The controls are very well fit and have a plush feel to them as well.

Luxurious comfort is what the seats are. They are cushioned, covered in leather, and have good bolstering zones at the back area and around the thighs. The seats offer great comfort and support. The front seats have long legroom. The rear space is great, but if you want more, the LWB versions add 7 inches extra leg space in the back. The outside visibility is excellent.

2015 Land Rover Range Rover Exterior

7.0/10

The Range Rover’s exterior is unique and elegant. It takes a route towards modernity with a futuristic approach. One can still make out the Land Rover outline on the shape of this car. The front end is curvy and smooth, with slim LED headlamps that encompass the mesh grille. The faired-in fog lamps with the mellow windshield give this car a very civilized look.

Along the side, the rectangular body style of the Range Rover is finished with the gloss black slim roof pillars. This is complemented with the curved deep wheel arches that can house wheels of sizes ranging from 18-22 inches. At the rear end, the lower part of the rear bumper slides upwards to create a bit of nostalgia. The tail houses vertical taillights and a generally clean look.

2015 Land Rover Range Rover Final Verdict

If luxury and status are what you’re looking for in the form of an SUV, the 2015 Land Rover Range Rover is the best choice. Power on demand, impeccable luxury seen on some luxurious sedans, and a very strong safety net are some of the plus points of the Range Rover. It has slightly outdated tech, and some might find the optional packages a tad bit too stretched out. It is super expensive as well, but worth every penny paid.
