- a new generation of land rover's range rover luxury suv will arrive on october 26.
- we expect the 2022 range rover to be more luxurious and more modern than before.
- look for land rover's inline-six engine to be standard, with v-8 and hybrid powertrains optional.
clarification: land rover confirmed to c/d that the new model will arrive in the u.s. for the 2022 model year, not 2023 as this article previously stated. the current, outgoing range rover is already in its 2022 model year, so we're not sure at this point how the company plans to differentiate the two in terms of naming convention, or if the old and new models will be sold alongside each other.
the iconic range rover will enter a new era soon, as the latest generation will make its debut october 26. land rover has released a few teaser photos of the new 2022 range rover in anticipation, including a blurry profile shot and a close-up of the front badge. as expected, the luxury suv will maintain its boxy shape but looks to have more modern detailing, with a look similar to that of the range rover velar.
full details will be coming soon, but we expect the range rover to offer land rover's 3.0-liter inline-six combined with a 48-volt hybrid system as the standard engine. a supercharged 5.0-liter v-8 will likely be optional, as it is on the defender, and a plug-in-hybrid model may join the lineup later on as well. inside, we'll likely see a comprehensive infotainment update, along with all manner of fancy materials available including leather, wood, and aluminum.
the current model offers short- and long-wheelbase variants, plus ultra-luxury autobiography models, and we think that will continue into the new generation. that means that the price range will likely be wide, starting just under $100,000 and ranging up to around $200,000 for the top versions. a redesign of the smaller range rover sport will likely follow by a few months.
look for more details to come on the 2022 land rover range rover lineup next week as we find out more about this new flagship luxury suv.
