Shopping for a Land Rover in Philadelphia can be confusing. Google it and you will find it closely allied with Range Rover. However, the two are not identical.

To further complicate the matter, the Range Rover has also produced its own family. This makes these models a subcategory of the Land Rover Family. The family consists of four models:

• Range Rover
