2016 Land Rover LR4 vs. 2016 Lexus GX
2016 Land Rover LR4
2016 Lexus GX
There are relatively few vehicles out there that offer top-of-the-line luxury, while also providing tremendous off-road prowess for serious trekking adventures. The 2016 Land Rover LR4 stands out thanks to its unmitigated commitment to handling any terrain without compromising an ounce of opulence inside the cabin.
The 2016 Lexus GX is one of the few models out there to offer some legitimate competition to the Land Rover LR4, but when it gets down to the details the Land Rover model still comes out on top. Find out how and then take the Land Rover LR4 for a spin at your Fort Myers Land Rover dealer near Naples and Marco Island.
When it comes to raw power under the hood and off-road capability, the 2016 Land Rover LR4 beats out the competition. Every one of these SUVs comes with a supercharged 3.0L V6 engine that generates a confident 340 hp and 332 lb-ft of torque, which it sends to a full-time 4WD system via a smooth eight-speed automatic transmission. The Land Rover LR4 also has a maximum towing capacity of 7700 pounds.
In terms of off-road capability, this model is offered with a two-speed transfer case with low-range gearing, a locking rear differential, and a Terrain Response system with special settings for General, Grass/Gravel/Snow, Sand, Mud/Ruts, and even Rock Crawl for models with the two-speed transfer case.
The 4.6L V8 engine on the Lexus GX only makes 301 hp and 329 lb-ft of torque. It gets a six-speed automatic transmission and also comes with a full-time four-wheel drive system. While there’s also a dual-speed transfer case on this model, it doesn’t come with much of the off-roading hardware and settings that are either standard or available on the Land Rover model. Also, this model can only tow up to 6500 pounds.
If you’re looking to take your SUV out on the road for an adventure, you’re probably looking for plenty of cargo room to store all your stuff for the trip. Here, again, the Land Rover LR4 beats out the competition. It has 42.1 cubic feet of cargo space behind the rear seat, as well as a maximum cargo volume of 90.3 cubic feet when you need it. The Lexus GX only has 11.6 cubic feet of dedicated cargo space and a max cargo volume of only 64.7 cubic feet.
