Updated 2022 Range Rover SUV spotted in tests

September 1, 2020 0 By autotimesnews

Automobile journalists were able to capture a prototype of the 2022 Range Rover British SUV. Apparently, the car received a powerful V8 engine. The presentation of new items from Land Rover can be expected in the near future.

At the disposal of our publication were “spy” photos from tests of a camouflaged prototype of a British SUV. An updated version of the iconic Range Rover has been reportedly spotted at the Nürburgring.

In fact, this is the same test car that we saw in early August, but for unknown reasons, it was equipped with a roll cage.

On the other hand, if we were piloting an SUV with very high ground clearance at breakneck speed on a race track with a lot of blind turns, we would also need a roll cage.

We previously reported that this prototype most likely did not have a V8 engine, judging by the sound of the exhaust system. Now, the situation has changed radically, as we hear the very deep “growl” of the V8 against the background of excruciating howl of tires. The question is, what kind of V8 are we hearing? The current 5.0-liter supercharged V8 is rumored to be replaced by BMW’s 4.4-liter twin-turbo engine. This is one of many possible changes to the SUV’s engine range as Land Rover will build the new Range Rover on a completely new modular longitudinal platform. The novelty will be capable of work with internal combustion engines, as well as hybrid and all-electric counterparts.

As for the size of the new items, judging by the noticed prototype of the SUV, they remain. From what we see through the camouflage, the look will be an extension of the familiar SUV shape. The interior should be “filled” with technology.

Current rumors suggest the new Range Rover will debut later in 2021 as a 2022 SUV.

Not so long ago, our publication squeaked that Land Rover has created a new fabric to celebrate Range Rover’s 50th anniversary. Exclusive jackets are going to be sewn from a special fabric. Their colors will resemble the original SUV that entered the market half a century ago.
