Range Rover gets an update in wheelbase

Once you say Land Rover you automatically think of sport utility vehicles. The Range Rover is the company’s premium brand, which it a very successful one. Every car producer tries to come up with something different and to make competition between brands bigger and bigger. To resist in a field that is continuously changing you have to come up with something new whenever the market requires it. So, the Land Rover is preparing a new long base variant of the 2013 Range Rover.

The updated Range Rover has just been spied in a couple of shots. The truth is that the vehicle is very well camouflaged and it doesn’t reveal that much. One easily observable aspect is that the back doors are longer, and this can be translated only in one way: more space provided for the rear sets passengers. Except for the longer wheelbase, the car looks about the same with the base model that was introduced for the first time in 2012 Paris Motor Show. The former model had a new all-aluminum monocoque body and chassis that has been reduced with 420 kg (926 pounds) compared to the third generation model, which means that fuel consumption and CO2 emissions have also been reduced.

The new Range Rover could be powered either by a 5.0-liter V8 supercharged gasoline engine or by 3.0-liter V6 and 4.4-liter V8 diesel engines. The base Range Rover is priced around 71,295 GBP, so naturally, this updated model will cost more. The price can be explained by a lighter, stronger and a more refined luxury SUV which is without any doubts the Range Rover.
