The new mid-size SUV 2022 Land Rover Range Rover has been recently spotted testing. This luxury model wears a refreshed design, and it hosts many improvements. According to the manufacturer, the forthcoming model will arrive at some point next year, alongside a long-wheelbase version.
If you didn’t know, Land Rover introduced last year a new inline-6 engine and the mild-hybrid system as the base powertrain. Considering that powertrains are still fresh, we are assuming that the fourth-generation model will be a carryover.
2022 Land Rover Range Rover Exterior
The new mid-size luxury SUV 2022 Land Rover Range Rover has been spied testing wearing full camo. Compared to the current model, the new SUV looks to have implemented a slightly less boxy shape. Generally, the design language is the same as on the recently redesigned Defender.
According to the manufacturer, the new Range Rover will underpin MLA (Modular Longitudinal Architecture) platform that we saw in a redesigned Jaguar XJ. We must mention that the D7 platform underpinnings the outgoing Range Rover, Range Rover Sport, and Discovery models. Moreover, the manufacturer revealed that the MLA platform would be much lighter than the aluminum-intensive D7.
At this moment, we don’t know much about the new 2022 Land Rover Ranger Rover cabin. However, we managed to conclude that the next-gen model will still lack the third-row of seats. That means Land Rover Ranger Rover will continue to be offered with two rows of seats, providing rooms cabin for five passengers. Generally, it’s a large probability that this model will use many cues from the outgoing model.
As you might know, the Land Rover Range Rover interior is stunning and exudes British luxury. The current model comes with two 10-inch infotainment touch screens, both featuring swipe and pinch-to-zoom control. Besides, it also features a 12.3-inch digital driver’s information display and 10-way power-adjustable front seats.
2022 Land Rover Range Rover Powertrain
The new 2022 Land Rover Range Rover will be offered with the same engines as the predecessor. That means a mild-hybrid setup will remain to be standard, while a new plug-in hybrid setup comes optional. The PHEV version featuring one electric motor at the front axle and a second electric motor is powering the rear axle. However, it isn’t clear if a V-8 will still be on offer or replaced with the new one.
Release Date and Price
The new 2022 Land Rover Range Rover SUV underpinning the same MLA (Modular Longitudinal Architecture) platform as the redesigned Jaguar XJ. Thanks to this platform, the new model can fit battery-electric powertrains, and it will eventually be used on most models from the Jaguar and Land Rover brands.
We also must mention that platform is lighter and stiffer than the previously aluminum-intensive D7 platform. From some speculations, the redesigned model will be fully revealed in the second quartal of the news year, while sales might starts soon after that. Price is still early to predict, but expect it to be higher than before.
