    Default I want an LR4 and I have a question

    I want the V8 so that limits me to 2010 to 2013 if I am correct. My question is what year did the single speed transfer case start? I obviously want the 2 speed but I can't find any info on when they started using the single as an option. What do I need to look for in interior pics to make sure it has the 2 speed.

    The non two-speed boxes will not have the low range (little mountain pictogram), but high range only (highway pictogram)

    Pictured is one that has the two speed box, a MY2012 LR4 for example

    Thx, I have asked a couple of owners so far and both had no idea what I was talking about.

    V8 is all years but 2005 which was a V6 and 2014 and newer which are supercharged V6ís I believe. There are 2 V8ís w the split at 2010. 2010-2103 has more HP and a few other changes. All LR3 and 4ís up to MY2013 have the dual transfer case with high/low range. 2014 starts supercharged V6ís and I believe the dual transfer case became an option that year. 2013ís are holding their value slightly better than other years because they are the last year of the V8ís and there were a few changes. We have a 2013 and love it. Already w 90,000 miles and no hiccups. Depending on budget and plans for use, Iíd shoot for a 2012/2013 that has the certified pre owned certificate or get that with purchase (6 years or 100,000 mike warranty) and relatively low miles (40,000-60,000).

    Thx for all that info. The info I could get together was the single X-fer case started in 14. The years I'm looking for are 12-13 now. I had a Disco back several years ago and have the fever again.

    Wow I never knew there were LR4's out there without low range. That's just silly

    Sigh...refer to the post above were the owners of the LR4's didn't even know. Welcome to the new face of Land Rover.
    I remember being in a focus group a few years ago and one of the questions asked is if a two wheel drive vehicle was still a Land Rover, and the 10 or so of us in the room burst out laughing and as one voice, said "No!"

    What is the difference between a HSE and a base unit? There is still a big price difference on used ones.
