everyone continues to appreciate our 2016 Land Rover Range Rover Td6’s style, luxurious cabin, and sumptuous ride quality. Some editors have joked that this SUV is the perfect long-term test vehicle, as it combines a cool, brag-worthy vibe with family-friendly space, long-distance comfort, and the ability to tow our various jalopies, boats, and campers behind it.
For starters, in heavy traffic or during low-speed maneuvers near other cars or guardrails, the parking sensors and sometimes the ultra-sensitive forward-collision warning suddenly erupt with beeps and flashing lights when no collision is imminent. The diesel engine’s laggardly acceleration when moving away from a stop continues to garner flak—at higher speeds, the engine is more responsive, though, so this complaint hasn’t deterred anyone set on road-tripping the diesel Range Rover. Other logbook commenters have thrown barbs at the glitchy navigation system and the frustrating, unintuitive driver-information display’s mixture of controls on the steering wheel and the turn-signal stalk.
