The 2017 Land Rover LR4 seems to take a bold leap into the future of luxurious SUVs. Granted, we don’t know much about it for sure at this point, but here is what we do have on it, and we’ll see how right we were once it is time for an update.
2017 Land Rover LR4 Release Date
The exact release date is still unknown, but we should expect this bad boy by the end of the year.
Price for Land Rover LR4
The price is hard to gauge, but anything between $50,000 and $60,000 is realistic.
On the outside, it seems as though the primary concern of the people who designed the 2017 Land Rover LR4 were the aerodynamic properties of the vehicle rather than its appearance, and this is not necessarily a bad thing.
Going heavy on aluminum and light on fuel consumption while looking kind of cool – not a bad deal on any day of the week. It seems the whole body has been lowered slightly to the ground, probably do decrease drag and save up that precious fuel.
This is where the air ride suspension comes nicely, in case you ever need to go off-road, giving you more than 10 inches where it counts – between your chassis and the ground, of course.
Otherwise, the grille has been slightly updated along with a new pair of LED headlights, but the most apparent physical change when looking from the front has to be the vertical air intake on the each corner of the front bumper. This also means extra cooling air for the breaks, the supercharger, or both.
Interior of 2017 Land Rover LR4
What few spy shots of the 2017 Land Rover LR4 we have managed to get our eyes on did not give away too much in terms of interior design or other features, but based on earlier models, we have a pretty good picture of what to expect.
If its closest equivalent in the Land Rover lineup is the norm, we are looking at a straightforward driver’s position, with no discernable major tweaks. The steering wheel rocks four spokes and chrome-lined buttons.
The infotainment system is being delivered via an 8-inch touch screen with eight hard buttons in case you need to access a menu quickly alongside large and user-friendly control interface.
Otherwise, the layout is as expected – vehicle controls on the left of the central console and all the optional gadgets and cup holders on the right.
Land Rover LR4 Engine
We are still very much in the dark regarding the engine options of the 2017 Land Rover LR4, although it is most likely that whatever they choose to put in will have forced induction intake with either a supercharger or a turbocharger, depending on the type of fuel it uses.
This could mean the current 3.0 L V6 and the 5.0 L V8 (both supercharged) could make a comeback again, along with a plug-in hybrid.
Either way, there is no reason to change the old 8-speed automatic transmission, although this too might have to be updated regardless. The estimated 0-60 mph time is 7 seconds and top speed is likely going to be roughly 125 mph.
