I'll be the first to give the LR it's kudos. I, personally, think it's gorgeous. The revised headlights aren't that great (too complicated with faux-Audi LEDs), but the lines of the rig are clean, modern and simple. The interior is fantastic. If I could afford one (to maintain one, that is) I would buy it in a heartbeat.
Standard: V8 (375 horsepower and 375 lb-ft torque) 7700 lbs towing and Terrain Response along with a fording depth of 27.6 inches is hard not to respect.
The GC is the next best thing and is certainly priced right, good looking and has a lot more dealers to support me when I'm on the road (compared to LR). I drive about 35K a year.
