2011 Executive Auto Guide Volume Two

The LR4 HSE LUX takes an incredibly versatile vehicle and advances it to the very limits of what a luxury vehicle can be.
With its 375bhp 5.0-liter LR-V8 engine, the vehicle has all the power you want and need. The Dynamic Stability Control improves the vehicle’s handling during acceleration or cornering.
With the addition of the Passive Keyless Entry feature, the days of fumbling for keys are over. The driver can access and lock/alarm the vehicle without taking the remote smart key out of a briefcase, purse or pocket. The vehicle is automatically unlocked and the immobilizer deactivated when the smart key comes within close proximity. Similarly, using the buttons on the door pull, the vehicle is locked, alarmed and immobilized.
The vehicle’s seven-passenger seating allows everyone to enjoy the ride comfortably. An electric sunroof provides extra light and airiness to the front seats, the Alpine roof extends the glass area to passengers in the second and third rows, while its combined reflective properties and interior sunblinds keep the cabin cool. Special leases and finance rates are available.
“My 2007 Land Rover LR3 has superb off-road capabilities. We actively use it when we manage and patrol 3,000 acres of land in the Waianae Mountains. I often drive on ranch roads or former ranch roads that can be very eroded, muddy and slippery. I’ve encountered rocky conditions and steep, clay slopes. It’s unbelievable to see what this vehicle can do with street tires.
I even drove it out to Waianae during the great flood. There was lightning, the thunder was pounding and I was driving through a foot to two feet of water with no problem. Water was everywhere on the road. I was a little tense, but my vehicle was absolutely in total control. That’s the beauty of my Land Rover—the traction control system is incredible. I’m very impressed. I haven’t found a situation yet where I couldn’t get myself out of.
Another additional benefit is my vehicle’s carrying capacity. My vehicle can comfortably carry seven people, and the seats can also fold down so I can carry luggage. It’s the perfect work vehicle for me.”
