All-new 2022 Range Rover spotted on test

Land Rover’s flagship Range Rover SUV has been spied winter testing in long-wheelbase form

The all-new Range Rover has been caught on camera for the first time, ahead of its scheduled launch in 2022. The upcoming model will once again be tasked with taking on rivals such as the Bentley Bentayga and Mercedes GLS.

These spy shots give us our first look at the long-wheelbase version, identified by the added length between the front and rear axles, of the upcoming Range Rover. It retains the same boxy proportions as the current car, although the body cladding does make it difficult to pick out other details. However, expect the headlights and tail lights to adopt a sleeker Velar-inspired look compared to today’s model.

Past and current iterations of the Range Rover have offered buyers a spacious layout with luxurious accommodation for four adults – and we expect that will remain the case with this new model. This long-wheelbase version will give buyers the option of an executive seating pack for the second row, which adds two larger rear seats that have a far greater range of adjustability for added comfort.

Elsewhere inside, Land Rover’s next-generation 10-inch touchscreen infotainment system, first used by the all-new Defender, will also likely feature. In the Defender, the unit features a powerful pair of processors and Blackberry operating system, which allows the system to perform both entertainment functions (such as music streaming) and over-the-air updates without any appreciable loss in performance.

While technical details are still some way from being confirmed, it’s safe to say that electrification will play a heavy part in the Range Rover’s engine line-up. It’ll be one of three cars that we know will utilise Land Rover’s MLA platform – the others being the all-new Range Rover crossover and the next Range Rover Sport.

MLA can support a fully electric twin-motor setup, but such a powertrain isn’t expected to be offered from launch. What is certain is that mild and plug-in hybrid units will be offered as JLR’s looks to strengthen its range of electrified powertrains.
