Land Rover LR4 HSE Wins Off-Road 2011 4x4 Competition

Petersen's 4-Wheel & Off-Road magazine has named the 2011 Land Rover LR4 HSE the winner of its coveted 4x4 of the Year award. This is the 29th year of the enthusiast magazine's in-depth competition of new 4x4 vehicles, and the first time a Land Rover product has taken home the award.

The Land Rover LR4 HSE topped the field of four worthy competitors and ranked high in every category of this year's in-depth test. The grueling 1,000-mile trial evaluates each vehicle's suspension, engine, transmission, and transfer case along with the style and creature comforts the vehicle provides. Most importantly, the 4x4s are judged heavily on how well they perform off-road. This year's competitors also included the Jeep Grand Cherokee, Ford F-150 Raptor SVT, and Lexus GX 460 Premium.
