It looks completely overhauled.
It's no secret that an all-new generation will replace the current 2021 Land Rover Range Rover later this year. The 2022 Range Rover was spotted as early as last February wearing heavy camouflage, then later at the Nurburgring and when undergoing winter testing. Our spy photographers have captured the next-generation Range Rover once again, but this time they managed to get up close to check out the car's interior.
This is the first time we've been given a sneak peek inside the new Range Rover before its reveal later this year. As expected, the new model boasts several improvements, including a slew of new tech features.
Though this prototype is still filled with testing equipment, we can get a good sense of what the cabin will look like. This new Range Rover will feature an all-digital gauge cluster and a much larger touchscreen than the outgoing model. The shifter design has changed significantly, now using an electronic lever rather than a rotating knob. The steering wheel looks to have the same button layout as the Defender, but the design looks more luxurious and less utilitarian for the Range Rover.
The center console appears to boast a huge storage area, which will likely include a lid on the production version in terms of the overall layout. The cupholders look pretty far back on the console, though that could change on the production model.
Not much is new on the exterior, which is still heavily camouflaged. The new Range Rover will be sold in standard and long-wheelbase guises with a range of engine options. The 3.0-liter turbocharged mild-hybrid inline-six should appear here, though it's unclear if the 5.0-liter V8 will make a comeback. Some rumors predict the supercharged engine will be replaced by a BMW-sourced twin-turbo V8. Land Rover will also offer a plug-in hybrid variant and a fully-electric model with the same drivetrain as the upcoming Jaguar XJ, which shares the Range Rover's platform.
Expect an official debut later in 2021.
