The latest photos of the spied 2022 Land Rover Range Rover reveals numerous upgrades if we compare it to the current model. According to the manufacturer, the upcoming model will ride on a new MLA platform that will bring a lot of changes. We must mention that until now, this SUV has been rolled on the old D7 platform that is also used on the Defender model. However, the new one is durable and is made to handle electric and hybrid systems.
From the latest information, the next-gen SUV will be built at Land Rover’s plant in Solihull, United Kingdom. This model will be powered by a turbocharged inline-6 powertrain that is connected to a 48-volt mild-hybrid system.
2022 Land Rover Range Rover Upgrades
The upcoming 2022 Land Rover Range Rover variant is spied testing and it sits on a new MLA (Modular Longitudinal Architecture) platform. The same platform is also available on the Jaguar XJ model. Moreover, the latest images reveal that some upgrades are happening on the Land Rover Range Rover SUV.
At first look, there are many similarities with the previous model. However, the new model is refreshed and dimensionally is eight inches longer than the current model. Also, the new-generation comes with slightly less boxier shape and a wider grille. The wheel arches look more noticeable as the new headlight system that looks similar to the Defender model. Besides that, most of the body is covered and is hard to guess what is updated.
More Luxurious Cabin
Thanks to the new MLA (Modular Longitudinal Architecture) platform, the upcoming 2022 Land Rover Range Rover will provide more rooms. This model will come with two rows of seats and it can place five occupants comfortably. However, if we compare it with the Discovery model, the new one loses the battle. The latest Discovery offers three rows of seats and pretty much more space. Generally, the cabin of the Land Rover Range Rover looks luxurious and the manufacturer added more techs. Unfortunately, images of the cabin are not available at this moment.
However, from some rumors, the new model will differ in many things from the regular model. Firstly, it will provide more standard features and there will be more luxury inside. Besides that, the driver-assistance technology will be better and we can expect a vast range of techs.
2022 Land Rover Range Rover Powertrain
The upcoming 2022 Land Rover Range Rover is built on the strong MLA (Modular Longitudinal Architecture) platform that can deploy battery-electric powertrains and it will be used on all future models from this manufacturer.
However, the turbocharged inline-6 powertrain and 48-volt mild-hybrid system powers the new 2022 Land Rover Range Rover. Thanks to this combination, this model delivers outputs of 355 horsepower and 365 pound-feet of torque. If one needs more power, he can go for the sportier P400 model that produces 395 hp and 406 lb-ft of torque. Acceleration is also good, and this model runs from 0 to 60 mph in 5.9 seconds.
Production and Price
The recently spied 2022 Land Rover Range Rover reveals more changes than before and a long-wheelbase variant. It is eight inches longer than the previous model.
According to the manufacturer, the production will start at the plant in Solihull. As for the release date, we can expect this SUV sometime next year. Price is still early to predict, but we can suppose more details soon.
