The redesigned version 2022 Land Rover Range Rover has been caught testing and at first glance, we can see numerous upgrades over the current model. Moreover, the spied prototype rides on the new MLA platform that is durable and is made to handle electric and hybrid systems.
According to the manufacturer, this model will debut next year and it will be built at Land Rover’s plant in Solihull, United Kingdom. A high-performance model Range Rover Sport should also be available, and it will provide a sportier look than the base one.
2022 Land Rover Range Rover Upgrades
The long-wheelbase 2022 Land Rover Range Rover variant is spied and the latest images reveal further upgrades. At first glance, the new model looks similar to the previous model.
However, if we look closer, we can see some changes. First of all, dimensionally, this SUV will be eight inches longer than the current model. It rides on the new MLA Modular Longitudinal Architecture that also underpinnings the Jaguar XJ model. This platform will be lighter than the aluminum-intensive D7 platform that the current model is using. Also, outgoing D7 platform underpins models such as Range Rover Sport, as well as the Discovery. However, the manufacturer said that the MLA platform would be used on all future models.
Interior Remains to Be Luxurious
Like the previous model, the forthcoming 2022 Land Rover Range Rover will provide a spacious and luxury cabin. However, the manufacturer will add more techs inside the upcoming one, as well as more upscale materials. Unfortunately, there are no available images of the cabin at this moment.
Whatsoever, the new-gen should be differentiated in many things from the regular model. According to some news, there will be definitively more luxury in the cabin. We can also expect a vast range of driver-assistance technology.

Moreover, thanks to this potent engine, the new model will be able to sprint from 0 to 60 mph in 5.9 seconds and top out 130 mph.
