The Range Rover’s 3.0 turbo V6 diesel produces 28 lbs.-ft. more torque (443 vs. 415) than the Aviator’s standard 3.0 turbo V6.

The Range Rover P400e can drive on battery power alone for up to 19 miles. The Aviator must run its internal combustion engine to move.

Regardless of its engine, regenerative brakes improve the Range Rover’s fuel efficiency by converting inertia back into energy instead of wasting it. Lincoln only offers a regenerative brake system on the Aviator Hybrid.

The Range Rover Diesel’s standard fuel tank has 4.7 gallons more fuel capacity than the Aviator Hybrid’s standard fuel tank (22.7 vs. 18 gallons), for longer range between fill-ups. The Range Rover P400e Hybrid’s standard fuel tank has 6.1 gallons more fuel capacity than the Aviator Hybrid’s standard fuel tank (24.1 vs. 18 gallons). The Range Rover’s standard fuel tank has 7.4 gallons more fuel capacity than the Aviator’s standard fuel tank (27.6 vs. 20.2 gallons).

For better traction, the Range Rover’s optional tires are larger than the largest tires available on the Aviator (275/45R21 vs. 255/55R19).

The Range Rover’s optional tires provide better handling because they have a lower 40 series profile (height to width ratio) that provides a stiffer sidewall than the Aviator Reserve/Grand Touring/Black Label’s 50 series tires.

The Range Rover offers an optional full size spare tire so a flat doesn’t interrupt your trip. A full size spare isn’t available on the Aviator; it requires you to depend on a temporary spare, which limits mileage and speed before replacement.

The Range Rover V8 has active sway bars, which help keep it flat and controlled during cornering, but disconnect at lower speeds to smooth the ride and offer greater off-road suspension articulation. This helps keep the tires glued to the road on-road and off. The Aviator doesn’t offer an active sway bar system.

The front and rear suspension of the Range Rover uses air springs for a smoother, controlled ride than the Aviator, which uses coil springs. Air springs maintain proper ride height and ride more smoothly.

The Range Rover’s drift compensation steering can automatically compensate for road conditions which would cause the vehicle to drift from side to side, helping the driver to keep the vehicle straight more easily. The Aviator doesn’t offer drift compensation steering.

The Range Rover P525 HSE executes Motor Trend’s “Figure Eight” maneuver quicker than the Aviator AWD (26.7 seconds @ .71 average G’s vs. 27.1 seconds @ .69 average G’s).

For greater off-road capability the Range Rover has a 2.9 inches greater minimum ground clearance than the Aviator (11.6 vs. 8.7 inches), allowing the Range Rover to travel over rougher terrain without being stopped or damaged.

Flexibility is maximized at the game, campground or a drive-in theatre in the Range Rover SVAutobiography Long Wheelbase when its optional tailgating rear seats are deployed, allowing people to sit facing out of the tailgate. (Do not use while vehicle is in motion.) The Aviator doesn’t offer tailgating seats.

The Range Rover SVAutobiography’s optional sliding cargo floor makes loading and unloading cargo easier and safer. The Aviator doesn’t offer a sliding load floor.

The Range Rover’s rear cargo window opens separately from the rest of the tailgate door to allow quicker loading of small packages. The Aviator’s rear cargo window doesn’t open.

Unlike the driver-only memory system in the Aviator, the Range Rover offers an optional passenger memory, so that when drivers switch, the memory setting adjusts the driver’s seat, steering wheel position and outside mirror angle and the front passenger seat also adjusts to the new passenger’s preset preferences.

Consumer Reports rated the Range Rover’s headlight performance “Good,” a higher rating than the Aviator’s headlights, which were rated “Poor.”

In poor weather, headlights can lose their effectiveness as grime builds up on their lenses. This can reduce visibility without the driver realizing. The Range Rover has standard headlight washers to keep headlight output high. The Aviator doesn’t offer headlight washers.

When the Range Rover is put in reverse, both rearview mirrors tilt from their original position. This gives the driver a better view of the curb during parallel parking maneuvers. Shifting out of reverse puts the mirrors into their original positions. The Aviator’s mirrors don’t automatically adjust for backing.

Both the Range Rover and the Aviator offer optional massaging front seats. The Range Rover Autobiography also offers optional massaging rear seats in order to maximize comfort and eliminate fatigue on long trips. Massaging second row seats aren’t available in the Aviator.
