All-new Range Rover luxury SUV will feature electrified engines and new styling – here's everything you need to know...

The original Range Rover revolutionised the way we viewed off-roaders when it was launched just over 50 years ago. It combined potent engines, a refined ride and a plush interior with genuine mud-plugging ability, becoming popular with farmers and royalty alike in the process. Like the first, the all-new, fifth-generation Range Rover will be able to cross continents and climb mountains while keeping its occupants in the lap of luxury.
The new model will retain the tall, boxy shape of its predecessors and retains the trademark deep, wide grille at the front and split tailgate at the rear. Modern styling touches will include slim headlights, similar to those of the Range Rover Velar, and stacked rear lights like those of the recently launched Defender.
While its outward appearance won't change heavily, though, underneath the new Range Rover will represent a big leap forward in terms of technology. For starters, the car sits on new underpinnings which should be stronger and lighter than those of today's car. Most versions will also come with a new rear-wheel steering system designed to make the car easier to manoeuvre around town.

2021 Range Rover engines
The new Range Rover will still be offered with conventional petrol and diesel engines, but most of these will include mild hybrid electrification that's designed to both reduce CO2 emissions and increase fuel economy. There will also be multiple plug-in hybrid versions. Today's P400e, which has an electric driving range of 31 miles, will be carried over, but will be joined by a new offering that can travel at least 50 miles without using a drop of fuel. The range will be topped by versions powered by a 4.4-litre V8 petrol engine.
A pure electric version of the car is also under consideration, but it’s not clear if this will go on sale in the UK, especially since Land Rover plans to launch its first bespoke electric car, the Road Rover, in 2022.
Prototype versions of the new Range Rover have been seen testing alongside rivals including the Mercedes-Maybach GLS and BMW X7 luxury SUVs, while other key rivals for the new Range Rover include our reigning Luxury SUV of the Year, the Audi Q7. As currently, the new Range Rover will be sold in both normal and long-wheelbase forms.

2021 Range Rover interior
On the inside, the Range Rover will use the same infotainment system already seen in the Defender. Called Pivi Pro, it has a 10.0in touchscreen, wi-fi, secure vehicle tracking and the ability to perform over-the-air software updates, which enable new features to be unlocked without having to visit a dealer. Digital instruments will be standard.



Buyers can expect to find at least the same amount of passenger and boot space as in today's car, as well as Land Rover's latest driver assistance technology and safety systems. This is likely to include a semi-autonomous setup which, at the very least, will be able to keep the Range Rover in its own lane on the motorway while also taking care of the car's acceleration and braking.

2021 Range Rover price
Today's Range Rover starts from £83,465, which already makes it more expensive than most rivals. We'd expect the new model's starting price to rise slightly, to around £85,000.
Just like today's line-up, a slightly smaller and cheaper Range Rover Sport is expected to arrive soon after the regular Range Rover goes on sale. It will continue to offer seven seats, and will make use of the same underpinnings and engines as its larger sibling.
The new Range Rover is going up against some formidable rivals, but will it earn a place among our favourite luxury SUVs? If you click the link through to the next story, you can see our current class favourites and find out if the Range Rover ranks among them.

Thanks for sharing. Looks like an L405 with a body kit. I’m sure the interior will have a nice upgrade.

First interior shots. Interestingly, the dial shifter is gone. Probably because of the lawsuits.

As for the comment about switching from rotary gear selector, I don’t understand how a rotary vs knob gear selector is any different these days — none seem to engage physically anymore... it’s all just a sensor that reads the twist or the tap.

Highly troublesome motor. Avoid the V8 model!!!
My tuned V6SC had no trouble running with V8's for years at 456/412 and being 300-400lbs lighter....hint at the future

I’m very happy it’s not a radical change from the l405.

However I agree with the guys that said it’s a big mistake bringing in the BMW POS v8. Ive been saying this for a while. I’ve had plenty of TT V8 bmws from the 7 series to multiple M5s, etc and man those engines is literally a piece of ****. It’s a turd.

The issues are endless. Injector issues causing engine to blow by hydrolocking, rodbearing issues causing engine to seize , valve seals issues causing engine to burn a quart of oil every 300-500 miles, every gasket leaks oil, coolant lines leak, endless endless list. And I was a big bmw fan but after a while I couldn’t do it anymore. They are designed to literally last 4/50k and designed to be leased. Not long term ownership cars. The worst part is that these issues have been going on since BMW made the V8. They have made many revisions but at the end of the day they still remain to this date.

JLR might not have made the most reliable engine with our 3.0/5.0 and they have certainly have their own issues. However it’s just a few things and most things are easily able to be prevented and or fixed. The timing chain and (handful of bad coolant pipes/water pump) is nothing compared to BMW. I have seen plenty of 5.0 RR with over 250k miles and still going :)

I just hope they still will have diesel engine. Please bring Diesel V8 to US.

THe 3.0turbo in my 21 Westie is a true sweetheart. Spins freely and much lighter than the V8's so a good portion of the extra HP advantage is neutralized.

I'm actually loving this! My SVR Carbon with the 5.0 SC V8 will be a collectors item :)

It's just so sad because Range Rover was one of the few left with a unique, high HP V8 experience. Every other manufacturer is going to some version of a TT 4.0/4.4L V8 (Porsche, Audi, BMW, Mercedes, Lambo). It just isn't the remotest version of special anymore. It's actually one of the biggest gripes I have on the RS6. Its literally the same car as an S6/SQ8/RSQ8 in different packaging. Love the look, but with dealer markups at $25k++ it's just out of hand.

If I wanted an X5M, I would have bought an X5M.

Hello, can someone help me in better understanding what to do. I was told about the new Range Rover (vogue) complete new generation change for the 2022 model, placed a deposit to be one of the first to get it in Toronto in dec2021/ Jan 2022 but today I got an email saying that Land Rover is telling them that the 2022 Model is going to be the design and the new one will be after that... I am guessing delays in production or something. Anyways this was lined up to work out with my lease ending in December and being put into a new gen and new lease. What should I do from here and has anyone else experienced this and is getting help from their dealer.

Do long term loaner cars exist? Do dealerships give clients a vehicle until the model they want comes out.

Thank you.

I forgot what country it was, maybe China, but I read that some country taxes high displacement engines a disproportionate amount, which is why all the auto makers are doing 4.0L V8s. I think it was in an article about the new RS6 actually.

I agree the 5.0L SCV8 is an amazing engine. Part of the BMW V8 rumor actually one of the big reasons why I decided not to wait for the L460.

Tax the new cars with good emissions systems but ignore the factories there spewing uncontrolled smog, got it.
