The LR4 competes with the Audi Q7, Lexus GX 460, BMW X5, Mercedes-Benz ML-Class, and other midsize luxury SUVs.

Standard features on the 2010 Land Rover LR4 include 19-inch alloy wheels, fog lights, power accessories (including 8-way front-seat adjustability), leather upholstery, power tilt-and-slide front sunroof, fixed rear sunroof, rear parking sensors, dual-zone automatic climate control, and a 9-speaker sound system, plus much more. The HSE package includes front parking sensors, heated front seats, heated windshield, and heated washer jets, plus Bluetooth connectivity and a hard-drive-based navigation system. Other packages add keyless ignition, keyless entry, backup camera, a third-row seat, interior mood lighting, and upgrades to the sound system and upholstery. At the highest end, the HSE Lux Plus option package includes heavy-duty features, such as an active locking rear differential. Many options are available as stand-alones.

It's coupeed with a 6-speed automatic transmission and 4-wheel drive. The LR4 also features an independent suspension, and a knob-controlled \"Terrain Response\" system. According to the EPA, the 2010 Land Rover LR4 delivers 12 mpg in the city and 17 mpg on the highway.
