The 2012 Land Rover Range Rover offers everything you would expect from this carmaker. Acceleration is smooth, off-road handling is impressive and it has a rich interior that ensures comfort no matter where the road or trail takes you.

Key Features

From the permanent four-wheel drive to the air-spring suspension and plethora of off-road systems available including a Terrain Response System, the Range Rover has everything it needs to deliver a comfortable ride and excellent performance. Options include a V8 engine or a supercharged model that packs even more power for tackling those serious trails. The 74.2 cubic feet of available cargo space also makes sure you have everything you need for the trip.

Changes for 2012

Cosmetic changes were on tap for 2012, with the Range Rover receiving color-keyed door handles and vent surrounds along with a switch to gloss black housings for the head and taillights. The wheels were also upgraded to 20-inch alloy V-spokes.

What We Like

Given all the standard features and safety systems for off-roading, we were also pleased with the performance and handling on the highway as well. There is no sluggishness at takeoff, and cruising is comfortable.

What Concerns Us

If you’re looking for seating for eight, don’t let the large size of the 2012 Land Rover Range Rover fool you – there’s only enough space for five. The fuel economy is also rather low compared with other options available in this class, so long trips could get a bit pricey at the pump.

Available Models

The 2012 Land Rover Range Rover is available in two models, which include a six-speed automatic transmission:

Range Rover HSE

  • 5.0-Liter V8
  • 275 horsepower @ 6,500 rpm
  • 275 lb-ft of torque @ 2,500 rpm

Range Rover Supercharged

  • 510 horsepower @ 6,000-6,500 rpm
  • 461 lb-ft of torque @ 2,500-5,500 rpm
  • City/highway fuel economy: 12/18 mpg

Major Recalls

There have been two major recalls issued for the 2012 Land Rover Range Rover. The first is for the flexible front brake hoses. Either hose could rupture, resulting in loss of brake fluid. If this occurs, the vehicle will likely require longer stopping distances.

The second recall is for models that could have windshields that were not bonded properly. Due to this, the windshield could detach during a crash.

Toyota Yaris - Brake Pads Replacement (Front) - Orlando, Florida
My appointment was late in the day, so being late was expected. Fabrice notified me ahead of time about his tardiness. When he arrived, he was apologetic, courteous and professional. He got to work right away and let me know of other work that was needed for future appointments

Becks was very informative about things that I didn't know needed to be looked at with my car. He fixed little hick ups quickly and had me ready to get back on the road sooner than I thought he would.

Miguel is very professional mechanic. He called me in advance about his coming. He brought the quality parts (brakes pads and rotors) and done his job quickly and of great quality. I tested the brakes after the replacement and they were efficient and very silent. I would recommend him very much.
