2004 Land Rover Range Rover Overview

An all new Range Rover was unveiled in 2003, bringing the luxury SUV pioneer into just the third generation of production. The Range Rover saw minimal change between the early 1970s and mid-1990s, and a second generation model (1995-2002) strictly adhered to the previous styling. This new model represents the greatest design departure in Range Rover's history. More changes arrived in 2004. The leather quality was improved and 14-way Contour power seats were now optional.

BMW engineers led the redesign, before ownership was transferred to Ford. A new V-8 engine and a more refined five-speed automatic transmission were among the key upgrades. This 4.4 liter V-8 generates 282 horsepower and 325 pound-feet of torque, bumping towing capabilities from 6500 to 7700 pounds. This new engine is also a bit more fuel efficient, up from 12/15 to 12/17 mpg. The Range Rover now rides atop four-wheel independent suspension, and the height adjustable air suspension is speed sensitive.

The HSE was once again the only trim level, but a special edition Westminster returned in very limited production. Only 300 were produced, and exclusive Wetminster features included 20-inch wheels, a leather-trimmed dash and console, the Contour seats and rain-sensing wipers. The HSE came standard with leather upholstery with contrast piping, a harmon/kardon audio system with a CD changer, a navigation system, walnut trim, a moon roof, keyless entry, heated mirrors and an anti-theft system. New third generation features included skid plates, Xenon headlights, descent control, stability control, 19-inch wheels, three-zone climate control, and power retractable side mirrors

The new BMW-engineered Range Rover offers some additional piece of mind, through significantly improved reliability and build quality. While pit stops is still inevitable, owners claim that dealership service is exceptional. Owners and reviewers maintain that the Range Rover is in a class by itself off-road, despite a steady influx of new competition.

Favorite features included the new leather seats, height adjustable suspension, the sound system, and the styling. Many have warned that the GPS could be better, more reliable and user-friendly.
