A few images are available, and the new 2023 Land Rover Range Rover looks refreshed and much more significant than ever. The long-wheelbase body style is expected to be especially popular in the U.S. market, where models such as the Lincoln Navigator and Cadillac Escalade dominate. According to Land Rover, they added approximately three inches between the axles.

The standard wheelbase is 118 inches and has an overall length of 199 inches, while the long-wheelbase version is eight inches greater in both measures.

What’s New?

Inside, the 2023 Land Rover Range Rover looks more luxurious than before. The manufacturer added more quality materials and plenty of new techs. As mentioned, the Range Rover is available with a standard-wheelbase, an extended-wheelbase S.V. with a four-seat interior, and a seven-seater. The most spacious seven-seater offers both rear rows to be power-folding, allowing 34 inches of legroom and much easier access than others.

The cabin is lavish, and it includes the latest Pivi Pro infotainment system featuring a curved 13.1-inch touchscreen. The rear-seat entertainment system is available as well, and it encompasses dual 11.4-inch touchscreens mounted on the rear of the front seatbacks.

Powertrain Specs

The 2023 Land Rover Range Rover will come with a top-tier engine taken for the overhauled BMW. It uses a familiar twin-turbo 4.4-liter V8 that’s available in a variety of M models. This engine has been tuned, and it’s capable of producing 530 horsepower and 750 Newton-meters (551 pound-feet) of torque. In general, it serves very well as a replacement for Jaguar Land Rover’s supercharged 5.0-liter V8. Land Rover claims that the Range Rover with a new engine can reach 62 mph in 4.6 seconds. Its electronically governed speed is 155 mph (250 km/h), which is more than enough.

There should also be a PHEV variant that will use a six-cylinder that makes 434 horsepower and 516 torque. On top of that, it uses a 38.2-kWh battery that gives an EV range of 62 miles.
