The British automaker is preparing a new Range Rover, as well as a stretched version, the Range Rover LWB. The novelty is likely to see the light of day in 2021.

Since its birth in 2012, the current Ranger Rover has reached the venerable age of eight. Land Rover is hard at work on an all-new model, a longer version of which will be available as the Range Rover LWB. The latter appeared before the lens of spy cameras.

The current Range Rover, with its 5m long and 2.92m wheelbase, certainly looks solid, but the LWB version looks even more impressive. The LWB is 5.2 meters long and has a wheelbase of at least 3.12 meters. With the next generation, the new Range Rover doesn’t seem to make a big leap in size, and it’s pretty clear that the upcoming LWB won’t be much larger than the current model.

Land Rover’s new flagship SUV rides on a completely new platform with extensive use of aluminum. This modular longitudinal architecture (MLA) base is prepared for the installation of large battery packs. The current model is already available as a plug-in hybrid, but the new Range Rover plug-in hybrid will get a bigger heart. However, an all-electric version does not appear to be available for the new model.

The next Range Rover will naturally receive Jaguar Land Rover’s latest innovations in infotainment, safety and autonomy systems. Land Rover is part of the British Autodrive project, and therefore, given the Range Rover’s status as a top-end model, it is possible that Land Rover will “stuff” the SUV with all kinds of cameras and sensors.
