Yea i have Pilot Sport AS4's so we are not even talking tires that are even in the same ballpark. You are comparing KO2's and AT3 to KO2's so I completely understand why you responded that way.I am comparing the Raptor to the Range Rover not the Range Rover Sport. RR and RRS are quite different from each other. I've owned two Range Rover Sports (2016 V6 with KO2s, 2017 V8 with Cooper AT3) and a Range Rover (V6 with Cooper AT3 4S).
1) I mean isolation from bumps/imperfections, and general smoothness/comfort of the ride. The Range Rover is a much smoother ride than the Range Rover Sport (I've owned both for years) and the Raptor is comparable to the Range Rover, which puts it on-par with the Range Rover Sport (or better). They've done a fantastic job of tuning the suspension on the Raptor.
2) Maybe there's something wrong with your Raptor? M/T tires? Older/worn KO2s? Full size Range Rover has a noticeably quieter interior than the Range Rover Sport and the Raptor is comparable to the Range Rover, which puts it on-par with the Range Rover Sport (or better).
4) The 20mpg you're reading out on your dash is anywhere from 12-20% off (I believe default "offset" is 18% from the factory--you can change it with FORSCAN type tools). Calculate your actual miles driven and divide that by how much fuel you put in to see what you're really getting. My display would regularly read 21-23mpg highway (while driving 75mph), but with actual calculations I'd be getting 17-19mpg in reality.
5) Zero body roll on the Range Rover Sport. I'm talking about the Range Rover, which has obscene, borderline nauseating amounts of body roll. My Raptor feels like a sports car through corners compared to the Range Rover.
1) The rides are 100% different in my mind. Just like BMW's vs Merc vs Range Rover Sport. They are very different in my opinion. On a track in a 911, BMW, Audi, Merc they all feel completely different and are very distinguisable. I guess I am just mentaly comparing a perfromance offroad Truck vs Street Performance SUV.
2) yea i still don't agree. I was in the RRS yesterday doing 80 just to see if I am missing and I cannot come to the same conclusion. Still giving the noise comfort to the RRS The tires are no comparison. New KO2's are really quiet but put 30K on them and they make some noise. You cannot compare a street perfromance Pilot Sports to an A/T
3) I don't use the dash mpg. I use the good ol calculator because I set the trip every fill up. Then it is simple math, miles/gallons.
I will have to differ to your RR vs RRS knowledge. I can only speak to RRS so I assume your are correct.
