About the range: although the range of 16 is better than 12, it does not make much difference especially when fighting cavalry, so I prefer a larger attack with a slightly smaller range.
About the price:
Price Food 75 50
Price Coin 25 50
Total 100 100
Landwehr is more expensive because you collect coins more slowly than food.
The resistance of it is also smaller 0,10 to Landwehr against 0,20 to Musketeer.
That is probably one of the issues with Uhlans as well. The unit being much cheaper in Food doesn't help much if you have to pay 100 Gold to buy one unit, for the same reason you mentioned. Pretty much every Civ has food more readily available than gold.
While a bigger Range for the Landswehr would be nice even with optimal unit management you can only get a 1-2 shots more against units with faster movement-speed or shorter attack-range.
With the wide range of more specialized units in other nations competing can be tough, considering that the real advantage for your economy only applies with the settlerwagon card in age 4 and less normal settlers to keep enough pop for effective army sizes in the lategame.
