Land Rover switched to active tests of a new generation Range RoverJune 21, 2019
So far there is little information on the Web, but now the company has begun testing new platforms with aggregates. This can be seen in fresh spy photos, which show a prototype with a body from the current version.
On the Net, thanks to the British edition of Autocar, fresh photos of the test prototype Range Rover of the new generation have appeared. You can’t see the design in these images – the old body was “pulled” onto the new platform, which barely got into it. Engineers had to work a little bit with a file, expanding the wheel arches and adding a superstructure on the rear bumper for the exhaust system.
Of course, the details are not disclosed. The model will be built on the basis of the new modular platform MLA. The prototype is equipped with a V8 engine with unknown characteristics. It can be assumed that a 4.4-liter engine from BMW is used. It is likely that it will replace the 5.0-liter unit with the current version. It is also known that the V6 gasoline engines, hybrid and all-electric power units will be used in the engine range.
From the words of the chief designer of JLR – the design of the new generation of Range Rover is virtually unchanged. Minor stylistic changes, of course, will occur, but the overall concept will be unchanged. But the interior will be completely redesigned.
The debut of the new version of the SUV is scheduled for 2021.
