Land Rover is working hard on the development of the fifth generation of one of its most iconic SUVs, the Range Rover. A generational change that will bring great news. We anticipate how your design will be through recreation while we collect the main keys that must be taken into account. Mechanics, technology, and much more.
The development of the new generation Range Rover continues to advance. More than a year has passed since our spy photographers first spotted a test mule of what will be the fifth generation of this iconic and popular SUV. Land Rover is immersed in this project which is of vital importance to guarantee the viability, and above all continuity, of the British model.
The fifth generation of the Range Rover will present very important improvements concerning the vehicle that we can still find in European dealerships. And it is logical since the generational change occurs at a key moment. In a transition period in which sustainable mobility is gaining ground and both connectivity and automation have become very relevant factors when buying a new car.
There have been quite a few sightings of prototypes of the new Range Rover in recent months. This reveals that development is well advanced and that Land Rover is significantly increasing the number of tests on roads open to traffic and in broad daylight. This, in turn, allows us to learn new and interesting details about this central pillar of the Range Rover family.
Based on the latest spy photos obtained and the information available, our designers have put to work to make the recreation that heads this article and that shows us what the design of the Range Rover 2022 will be like. It will be quickly recognizable, although it will sport a more modern and dynamic look. It will adopt the new Land Rover design language.
The most relevant aesthetic changes will take place at the front. It will release light groups, grills, and a new bumper. The beltline will also be raised slightly and the changes in measurements (it will be around 5 meters long) will allow the vehicle to look more imposing and athletic.
Range Rover 2022 Engine
At the technical level, there will be important news. The new-generation Range Rover will be supported by the MLA (Modular Longitudinal Architecture) platform, a new and lighter architecture. This platform is key in the electrification plans that Land Rover has for this model. The 48-volt Mild Hybrid technology will be present and different plug-in hybrid versions (PHEV) will also be offered.
There will be gasoline and diesel engines. Also, mechanical options include a BMW-sourced 4.4-liter V8 Biturbo petrol engine. Regardless of the chosen block, we will have an automatic gearbox and a four-wheel-drive system. For the moment the development of a 100% electric version is ruled out. This position will be filled by a specific model.
When it comes to connectivity and automation, the Range Rover will have to step up in order not to lag behind its more direct rivals, the BMW X7, Mercedes GLC, and Audi Q7, among others. It will have a new generation infotainment system, a digital instrument panel, and an air conditioning module that will follow the line of what has been seen in the latest Land Rover launches. The driving assistance systems system will also be expanded to offer a higher level of safety and comfort at the wheel.
When will it hit the market?
The commercial launch of the new Range Rover is scheduled for 2022. However, the debut is scheduled for the second half of 2021. In any case, it is confirmed that the development process is being quite long if we take into account the usual deadlines. of the sector.
