#9 - Land Rover LR3

The Land Rover LR3 makes it into the final round of the search for the true off-roader.

by Steve

LAND ROVER LR3 — Land Rover's replacement for the Discovery is much better and more capable. The Land Rover LR3's new Terrain Response allows you to pick different settings that make it handle differently then others, for example if you are driving on sand, snow, mud etc.

The LR3 has kind-of brought technology into the 4WD game with its plethora of electronic gadgets that help you find your way.

The Land Rover is definitely capable, but the price kind-of steers it away from those who might use it for what it’s designed for. That’s the problem with luxury SUVs these days.
