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

Land Rover models

If you’ve been shopping for off-road-ready luxury SUVs, chances are you’ve come across Land Rover models and Range Rover models–but are the terms “Land Rover” and “Range Rover” are interchangeable? No–but the Land Rover vs. Range Rover difference is simple:

  • Land Rover is the brand of the vehicle, with seven different models in its lineup.
  • A Range Rover is a specific Land Rover model, so it’s full name is the Land Rover Range Rover–just like the full name of the Mustang is the Ford Mustang.
  • ‘Range Rover’ is also the label for a subcategory of Land Rover models, informally called the ‘Range Rover family’. This family consists of 4 unique models–the Range Rover, the Range Rover Sport, the Range Rover Velar, and the Range Rover Evoque.

In other words, each Range Rover model has their own unique designation, but they all belong to the Land Rover brand. Learn about each Range Rover model and the rest of the Land Rover vehicles below, then schedule a test drive at Land Rover San Antonio near Corpus Christi.
