The most capable and luxurious Land Rover yet, the all-new Range Rover is the fourth generation of the unique Range Rover line. Developed from the ground up, it captures the innovative spirit and iconic design of the original model, which changed the world of motoring when it was launched over 40 years ago.
John Edwards, Land Rover Global Brand Director, said: “The new Range Rover preserves the essential, unique character of the vehicle – that special blend of luxury, performance and unmatched all-terrain capability. However, its clean sheet design and revolutionary lightweight construction have enabled us to transform the experience for luxury vehicle customers, with a step change in comfort, refinement and handling.”
The all-new Range Rover has a clean and elegant shape, which is derived from a fresh new interpretation of Range Rover design cues. While instantly recognisable as a Range Rover, the new vehicle takes a significant step forward with a bold evolution of the model’s iconic design language.
“Designing the next generation Range Rover, following over forty years of success, came with a huge responsibility to protect the DNA of such an icon,” said Gerry McGovern, Land Rover Design Director and Chief Creative Officer.
“Our design team worked incredibly hard to capture the elegant proportions and pure surfaces which have been a feature of the best Range Rover designs.”
To deliver the model’s characteristic effortless performance, customers have the choice of refined V8 petrol engines, and for North Africa, TDV6 and TDV8 diesel engines, combining responsive performance with outstanding CO2 emissions.
The world’s first SUV with a revolutionary, lightweight, all-aluminium monocoque body structure, the all-new Range Rover has been engineered with the latest developments in vehicle technologies.
