So far, the Network information a bit, but now the company has started tests of the new platform units. This can be seen in fresh spy photos, which is a prototype with a body from the current version.
In the Network, due to the British publication Autocar, appeared fresh pictures of the prototype test Range Rover of the new generation. In these images, the design you see on the new platform “pulled” the old body that barely got. Engineers had to do a little work with a file, extending the wheel arches and adding the add-on rear bumper for exhaust system.
Of course, the details are not revealed yet. The model will be built on the new modular platform of the MLA. The prototype includes a V8 engine with unknown characteristics. We can assume that you are using a 4.4-liter engine from BMW. It is likely that it will replace the 5.0-litre unit from the current version. It is also known that in the engine lineup will use V6 gasoline engines, hybrid and all-electric powertrains.
In the words of chief designer, JLR – the design of the new generation Range Rover will not change. Minor stylistic changes, of course, happens, but the General concept is unchanged. But the interior will be completely redesigned.
The debut of the new version of the SUV is scheduled for 2021.
