The Land Rover LR2 SE is a four-door compact SUV from British automaker Land Rover, and is the only trim package of the vehicle available in the U.S. for the 2008 model year. It is powered by a 3.2-liter six-cylinder engine that produces 230 horsepower. The engine is linked to a smooth-shifting six-speed automatic transmission with normal, sport, and manual-shift modes, and powers a full-time four-wheel-drive system.
Among the LR2's many features is the Terrain Control system, which enables the driver to adjust the LR2's engine, transmission, brakes, traction control, and stability control system for optimal driving in various conditions. By turning a knob located on a panel on the console, the driver can select from four modes, including normal, gravel, snow, and sand.
The LR2 is also equipped with Electronic Traction Control, Roll Stability Control, Hill Descent Control, Corner Brake Control, and Dynamic Stability Control, which adjusts power and braking in an emergency situation to control skidding.
Drivers of other Land Rovers will find the LR2's cabin familiar, spacious, and well-equipped with such standard features as leather-trimmed seats, a dual-panel sunroof, cruise control, power-adjustable front seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, and a nine-speaker AM/FM audio system with an in-dash six-disc CD changer and an MP3 input jack.
