Land Rover introduced Range Rover LWB for winter tests

Land Rover introduced Range Rover LWB for winter tests

February 24, 2020 0 By autotimesnews

After the release of the new version of the usual Range Rover, the British automaker sends a prototype of the extended Range Rover for severe winter tests. It is not clear when the British will officially unveil the new SUV.

Major updates await at the top of the Land Rover lineup. This is not surprising, because the current Range Rover has been around for about seven years. Both SUVs, both the Range Rover and its larger version of the LWB, are based on the new platform. The modular longitudinal architecture (MLA) consists largely of aluminum, which basically guarantees greater weight loss.

The new base takes into account the possible placement of batteries and batteries. Nevertheless, you should not expect the appearance of a fully electric crossover, but you can count on a plug-in hybrid. When the new Range Rover makes its debut with the Bentley Bentayga, it’s no wonder if it will use BMW’s 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 to replace the current 5.0-liter supercharger.

The fact that we have a stretched version is not necessarily judged by the elongated wheelbase – this is evidenced by the huge size of the rear doors. Camouflage does its job by hiding the design of the SUV, but it cannot hide the characteristic square shape of the Range Rover.

As for the individual “suit”, Land Rover adheres to the current design, although in general it is heavily updated. As always, the rear window wiper is installed under the spoiler and “wipes” the glass on the contrary. It looks like the test car had a fully serial body and the last headlights, and it is likely that the serial taillights were also completely hidden by camouflage.
