The next generation Land Rover Range Rover prototype was last tested at the Nürburgring. But a fresh series of spy shots show that the refreshed SUV is moving much slower – standing still.

The photos show that the SUV still has a lot of camouflage, but the tight-fitting film does reveal a bit of style. At first glance, the next generation Range Rover looks a lot like the previous model. It has the same clamshell-style hood and short front overhang.

The front panel looks more vertical than before. But it may seem so because of the camouflage that hides the radiator grille and headlights. The back is still heavily camouflaged, so it’s not easy to pick out any styling details.

The exterior will look familiar and the interior is expected to undergo major technological refurbishment. Previous modest shots showed a partially enclosed interior with a large digital instrument cluster and a large infotainment screen.

The steering wheel controls included both physical buttons and touchscreens. The rest of the interior was either closed or incomplete. The test car was missing most of the center console.

The entry-level model is expected to receive an in-line 6-cylinder engine paired with a mild-hybrid system. There will also be a plug-in hybrid model again, likely using the same 2.0-liter turbocharged unit that collectively produces 398 horsepower in the current model.

The V8 is expected to make a return, although it is unclear if the 5.0-liter will go into the new model or if Land Rover will replace it with BMW’s 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8.

There is no exact date for the presentation of the new Range Rover yet. At the same time, the debut should take place this year.
