Land Rover Vs Range Rover: What’s the difference? 


Land Rover is probably one the most known worldwide brands, producing outstanding four-wheel-drive vehicles, but what’s the difference between Land Rover and Range Rover? 

The basic difference between the two, is that Land Rover is the make, whilst Range Rover is a specific model of Land Rover. In short, Range Rover is a sub-brand within Land Rover. 

Land Rover was first revealed to the world at the Amsterdam Motor Show on 30th April 1948. After the Series I Land Rover was introduced, the company quickly became popular in the off-road market.

The first Range Rover model was launched in 1970. It was at this point that Land Rover started to move more upmarket with luxurious models that still had the Land Rover’s off-road capabilities.

Land Rover manufactures a range of different Land Rover and Range Rover models that vary in sizes. However, Range Rover models generally tend to be smaller than their Land Rover counterparts. Below shows the different models available.
