When it comes to the details, though, the 2016 Land Rover Range Rover Sport clearly has the edge over the competition. Find out how they compare, and if you prefer the 2016 Land Rover Range Rover Sport, then head from Naples or Marco Island to Land Rover Fort Myers for a test drive.

Performance and Fuel Economy

Whether your priority is maximum performance or fuel economy, the 2016 Land Rover Range Rover Sport is the better pick. The base engine on this luxury SUV is a 3.0L V6 that makes 340 hp and 332 lb-ft of torque. You can also move up to a turbo-diesel 3.0L V6 for 254 hp and a robust 440 lb-ft of torque. The biggest engine in the lineup is a 5.0L V8 that dishes out 510 hp and 461 lb-ft of torque, though there’s a specially tuned SVR version that bumps output to 550 hp and 502 lb-ft of torque. Maximum fuel economy comes from the turbo-diesel engine at an EPA-estimated 29 mpg highway and 22 mpg city.

The only available engine on the 2016 Toyota Land Cruiser is a 5.7L V8 that makes 381 hp and 401 lb-ft of torque. This setup only gets an EPA-estimated 18 mpg highway and 13 mpg city.

Off-Road Performance

Both of these premium SUVs deliver impressive off-road capabilities thanks to their truck-based, body-on-frame design and standard full-time four-wheel drive. In a number of areas, though, the Land Rover model beats out the competition. For example, it is offered with an available two-speed transfer case and comes standard with a Terrain Response system with adjustable settings for different weather and road conditions.

There’s also an All-Terrain Progress crawl control system that lets you set a pre-determined speed of up to 20 mph, which the vehicle can keep even on difficult terrain. Also offered is a Terrain Response 2 system that automatically sets the vehicles engine, transmission, and suspension performance based on the conditions you’re driving in.

Meanwhile, the 2016 Toyota Land Cruiser has a Kinetic Dynamic Suspension System with electronic stability control, as well as a Multi-Terrain Select system five-speed crawl control, and an Off-Road Turn Assist system.
