What is the Difference Between a Land Rover and a Range Rover?

2022 Land Rover Range Rover vs. 2021 Ford Explorer

Have you always wondered how Land Rover vs. Range Rover compares? The difference is make vs. model. Land Rover is the luxury brand’s name (or “make”) of the vehicle, and Range Rover is the specific Land Rover model. “Range Rover” is also the name of a four-vehicle lineup within the entire seven-vehicle Land Rover lineup. The lineup is referred to as the “Range Rover family.” Learn more about the difference by visiting Land Rover Kansas City for a test drive.



Land Rover Range Rover Models

Land Rover Range Rover models don’t just end at the classic Range Rover. The name is carried through four models, which include:

  • Land Rover Range Rover – The original Range Rover model that started the advancement in power and off-roading abilities. This SUV remains the most luxurious of all the Land Rover models, thanks to features like Rear Executive Class Seats and more.
  • Land Rover Range Rover Sport – The Range Rover Sport focuses more on performance and capability on Wichita roads and a little less on pampering passengers.
  • Land Rover Range Rover Velar – Since its 2017 release, the Range Rover Velar has been described as the “avant-garde Land Rover” because of its sleek silhouette and introduction to design elements like flush door handles, a floating roofline, and more.
  • Land Rover Range Rover Evoque – This is the most compact member of the Range Rover family, and it offers a luxurious design, advanced features, and off-road capabilities at a more affordable price.

What Are the Other Land Rover Models?

While the Range Rover name is attached to four of the Land Rover models, these three models don’t fall under the Range Rover umbrella:

  • Land Rover Discovery – The largest Land Rover is built for strength and advanced safety, whether taking the highway or the path less traveled.
  • Land Rover Discovery Sport – The Sport model of the Discovery offers many of the same features as the entry-level model, but it’s better suited for your adventures around St. Louis, MO.
  • Land Rover Defender – Resurrected for the 2020 model year, the iconic Defender was newly redesigned and became the most rugged Land Rover yet.
