2019 Land Rover Range Rover vs. Its Competition

2019 Land Rover Range Rover
Martin Padgett Martin Padgett Editorial Director

In the rarefied world off ultra-luxurious off-roaders, the 2019 Range Rover strikes a middle ground between what we’ll loosely call “mainstream” and the domain of the ultra-ultra-ultra rich.

The function-first brutes include the Mercedes-Benz GLS-Class and Lexus LX 570.

Both pamper their drivers and have unseemly talents off-road—but there’s always better, so long as you have the budget.

The Range Rover spans the yawning gap between those two and the next niche up.

Less off-road talent and more sybaritic interior trim characterize the Bentley Bentayga and the Rolls-Royce Cullinan.

Both are technological tour-de-forces, and both are hideously expensive: The Cullinan commands a premium above the class premium, just for existing.

The throwback-styled G-Class has it both ways: it can tromp trails with the best off-roads, and show up for the red carpet with nary a hair out of place.
