The diesel-powered Range Rover does not have many rivals, in fact, it only has one the 2021 diesel Cadillac Escalade. The Escalade also has a 3.0-liter engine, but it is an inline 6 which produces 277 horsepower. As you can see the Cadillac has more power than the Rover and it is the same case when it comes to torque.

The 2021 Range Rover diesel does the zero to sixty sprint in 7.2 seconds. Diesel engines are not known for their acceleration figures, but the performance offered by the Range Rover is respectable. It also can do the quarter-mile in 15.3 seconds and reach a top speed of 130 miles per hour.

The deceleration figures for the Range Rover are also pretty respectable for an SUV. It can come to a complete stop from 60 in 124 feet. Unfortunately, the acceleration and deceleration figures for its rivals are not available. The Escalade is getting a major update for 2021 and the figures have not been announced by the automaker.

"Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capability are both standard across the lineup." - Car and Driver

Luxury is the name of the game when it comes to Land Rovers. The cabin is filled with premium materials and offers good ergonomics as well. As standard, the 2021 Range Rover Diesel can seat 5 people in utter luxury and comfort. The seats are designed to wrap around you and give you a comfortable fit, this is the story for both the Front and Rear seats. The $98,000 that you pay is justified by the luxury and performance you get.

The 2021 Range Rover offers a lot of interior features and customization packages. The standard Range Rover comes with features like a premium 13 speaker setup for the audiophiles and speed-sensitive volume.

For 2021 Cadillac has stepped up its game with the new 2021 Escalade. Both the vehicles can match each other in teach and comfort. However, the Range Rover still manages to have a better offering over the Cadillac Escalade. The Range Rover comes with Land Rover’s latest dual 10-inch touchscreens for infotainment and vehicle functions which it calls the Touch Pro Duo. It is further accompanied by Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, SiriusXM, and more.

However, comparing the Range Rover Diesel's infotainment system to the 2021 Cadillac Escalade it feels and looks very outdated. Even though the infotainment is not fancy as the one on the Escalade it still manages to get the job done. You can also control the infotainment system using the controls on the steering wheel. Further, at an additional $460 you can choose to add an Illuminated aluminum treadplate with Range Rover script.

"The 2021 Range Rover Sport takes its big brother’s looks and distills them to more palatable proportions." - The Car Connection

There are no major updates for the 2021 model and the SUV remains the same when it comes to looks. However, that does not matter because the vehicle still looks rowdy and classy at the same time. The design, dimensions, and style are well suited for the $98,000 it asks for.

It takes many design cues from its bigger and elder sibling like the front grille, LED headlight signature, and clamshell hood. The vehicle also comes with a power gesture tailgate and black contrasting panoramic roof.

Diesel power vehicles may not be everyone's cup of tea. However, if you are in the market for a diesel-powered Luxury SUV, look no further.

Not quite what I expected!

Pros - Powerful diesel engine. Elegant interior. Great visibility.

Cons - Major repairs. Less cargo space. Frustrating infotainment system.

The diesel engine has been a bummer! The Range Rover has been my daily driver for almost 3 years now. But honestly, with frequent workshop visits, I have started to feel maybe it wasn't a great choice. The diesel engine has been a good powerhouse with more efficient mpg numbers for almost two years. But honestly, with a major oil leak and another starter motor failure within a year, it has been not very assuring to drive the SUV anymore. Even the infotainment system on the SUV is laggy and quite cluttered. The one thing sure of this SUV is the elegant and comfortable interiors. Please avoid the diesel engine trim if you can! The service team is quite slow to finish off the work. And worse, they won't pick my calls or provide a report on what's happening! Pathetic for major repairs!

Getting this one is a step up in lifestyle.

Pros - Brand value, outstanding looks, posh cabin

Cons - High ownership costs

Class! My first Land Rover; previously used to own a ML350. Must say this thing feels like quite a step up; it should be, as it cost me nearly 90 grand! Starting from those instantly recognisable boxy bossy design to the ultra premium cabin, this SUV has appeal written all over it. Magnificent cabin and cloud like seats. Perfect for interstate rides! The ride is just supreme. Shut the door and you'll be sealed of into another space- the luxury space! Veronica was the nicest person that I have ever dealt with in any dealerhip. Such a welcoming person and easy attitude to work with.

BAD DECISION!!

Pros - Upscale styling. Spacious interiors. Cargo space.

Cons - Too many repairs. Poor experience with the dealership.

Worst luxury brand to own! It's been only a year since I got the Range Rover from Land Rover dealership here in Richmond. I don't understand how can they sell a used SUV with so many issues as "Certified Used" for a premiuim price anyway. I absolutely regret having switched to a Land Rover from my old Mercedes-Benz GL! I have stopped using the SUV completely now as some or other problem pops up and makes sure it ends up in a workshop. It all started with a thudding noise from underbody at slow speeds which took a lot of time to get fixed. The workshop team left a clamp on the exhaust pipe loose which resulted in the pipe scrapping along a busy highway. Worse of it was a diesel leak soon after a service which I still don't understand how it happened. I wasted about a quarter tank of gas to the leak before I noticed a smell inside the cabin! Horrendous experience and furthermore worst workmanship from the dealer team as well. German standards are better for this very reason! Going back to a new GL!
