2021 Land Rover Range Rover vs. Its Competition

2021 Land Rover Range Rover HSE Westminster Edition
Andrew Ganz Andrew Ganz Senior Editor

The Mercedes-Benz GLS-Class arguably matches the Range Rover best.

Not as off-road-ready, the GLS is nonetheless a spectacular on-road performer with serious underhood muscle and an interior that can be absurdly decadent, especially in Maybach trim.

The redesigned Cadillac Escalade is a serious rival for the first time in years thanks to tons of tech and appealing SUV utility.

BMW’s X7 isn’t styled for everyone, but behind the wheel it is a masterful performer with great turbo power.

It’s hard to call any Lexus a budget choice, but the LX 570 is something of a deal for those willing to put up with truly awful fuel economy.

And don’t cross off the latest Mercedes-Benz G-Class.

Garish in all the right (or wrong) ways, the G-Wagen is impressive on-road and brimming with off-road ability.
