What models are in the Land Rover lineup?
Want to learn all about the Land Rover lineup? Things can get confusing as there seems to be multiple models of the same model, and it’s easy for Range Rover to get lost in the mix entirely. We are here to clear it up and explain what models are in the Land Rover lineup, and how it all fits together.
A story of two Land Rover lineups
It will eliminate a lot of confusion if you just think of Land Rover as having two different sub-brands. You have the Range Rover and the Discovery. The latter of which use to be known as the LR (as in LR4, LR3, etc.), but it was always called the Discovery in other markets and just recently recovered its Discovery name in North America.
Land Rover Range Rover Lineup
Most will just call these models Range Rovers as saying the full name can get a little redundant. The Range Rover came first in 1970, and currently, there are four models in the Range Rover lineup.
At the top of the lineup, you have the largest and most expensive model with the Range Rover. As we go lower, the price goes down and generally, the size goes down too. From the Range Rover, it goes Range Rover Sport, Range Rover Velar, and Range Rover Evoque.
Land Rover Discovery Lineup
As we said earlier, the Discovery is actually the continuation of the LR, so some see it as the LR 5. In fact, it is actually referred to as the Discovery 5 elsewhere. Be cool and call them all Discovery models.
The lineup here is a lot simpler and shares some parallels to the Range Rover Lineup. At the top, you have the Discovery, and then right below you have the Discovery Sport. For the Discovery, that’s where the lineup currently ends.
Do the two Land Rover lineup intersect?
The two Land Rover lineups do intersect, which is a source of further confusion. The Range Rover Evoque is actually the smallest Land Rover model, though it is not the most affordable. Range Rover maintains a certain level of luxury above the Discovery.

Above the Range Rover Evoque in size, you have the more affordable Discovery Sport, then it goes to the Range Rover Velar, before going back to the Discovery and finishing up at the top with the Range Rover Sport and Range Rover which are about equal in size.
