2018 Land Rover Range Rover vs. Its Competition

2018 Land Rover Range Rover
Andrew Ganz Andrew Ganz Senior Editor

In the rarefied world off ultra-luxurious off-roaders, the 2018 Range Rover strikes a middle ground between what we’ll loosely call “mainstream” and the domain of the ultra-ultra-ultra rich.

In the former camp sit otherwise fine machines like the Infiniti QX80, Mercedes-Benz G-Class and Lexus LX 570.

All three lack for little in terms of luxury and pampering, and the Lexus even has serious off-road chops thanks to a design shared with the capable Toyota Land Cruiser.

For those who must have even more, the Bentley Bentayga is a gauche technological tour-de-force and the Mercedes-Benz G-Class remains the original #throwbackthursday.

The Bentley bests the Range Rover, but not in as many ways as its $230,000 base price would suggest, while the G-Class is an extended middle finger to convention (and fuel consumption).
