Fourth generation Range Rover revealed

By / 8 years ago / Latest News / No Comments

The first all-new Range Rover in ten years replaces a model which was developed under BMW ownership and sold as part of Ford’s Premier Automotive Group and eventually Tata, and will be manufactured in Solihull for 160 global markets.

Most of the technological advances can be found in the body construction. Instantly recognisable as a Range Rover, but updated in line with the globally popular Evoque, the body shell is made entirely from aluminium and is 39% lighter than in the outgoing car. Land Rover said this alone helps save up to 420kg on some models.

Engine options will include a supercharged V8 petrol and TDV6 and SDV8 diesels, with fuel consumption and CO2 emissions as yet unrevealed but claimed to be significantly lower than in the versions they replace. The fourth generation Range Rover will also be the first to use a hybrid drivetrain, possibly with a diesel engine and electric motor to offer all wheel drive.

Other debuts include the latest version of Land Rover’s Terrain Response system and  a new four-corner air suspension system designed to improve the car’s agility and steering feel. There will be no seven-seat version, but rear passengers gain 118mm legroom.

Pricing and full UK specification will be announced shortly.
