Ranking high in every category, the LR4 was deemed “the undisputed champion” to beat out Jeep, Ford, and Lexus in this prestigious competition.
It’s a grueling 1,000 mile test where experts from Petersen’s 4-Wheel & Off-Road Magazine judge suspension, engine, transmission, transfer case, creature comforts and most importantly, off-road performance. The LR4 HSE went up against the likes of the Jeep Grand Cherokee, the Ford F-150 Raptor SVT and the Lexus GX 460 Premium. As you probably know, to be eligible the vehicle must be all new or have improvements that make it perform significantly different from the previous model.
Here’s what they said:
"The Land Rover LR4 HSE pulled ahead of the fierce competition in this year's test and came out an undisputed champion," said Rick Pewe, editor-in-chief of Petersen's 4-Wheel & Off-Road. "The off-road capability of the LR4 was remarkable, and the on-road manners were superb. It impressed every judge in the test."
Another judge noted, "Surprising, nay, shocking capabilities both on-road and off. And comfortable too! Like a true English gentleman, it doesn't get ruffled."
Naturally, Land Rover North America Executive V.P. Chris Marchand couldn’t let this one go unnoticed: "We appreciate the experts at Petersen's 4-Wheel & Off-Road magazine taking these vehicles to their limits and reporting back that the Land Rover LR4 is in fact, in their words, an undisputed champion."
