Land Rover says no vehicle competes with the Range Rover, and while we tend to agree, we can think of a handful of vehicles that make great substitutes.
The BMW X5 lacks the tastefulness baked into the British SUV, but it's quite capable off-road, and has a sizzling M companion with 555 horsepower.
The Cadillac Escalade offers up different body styles and glitzy bling for its dedicated fans, while the Lexus LX crushes the earth with the usual application of expected luxury features in the customarily unexciting way.
The Mercedes-Benz G-Class has the same old-school military feel, but its luxury is glued on; the GL-Class does a more convincing job on the luxury front and has seating for seven, as well as a diesel option for very good fuel economy.
