New Range Rover 2022 grand reveal
The new Range Rover 2022 is a minimalist piece of art!
Redefined from the ground up, Tata Motors-owned Land Rover revealed the new Range Rover 2022 at the Royal Opera House in London, this fifth-generation Range Rover showcases evolutionary design from previous Range Rover’s hallmarks.
Despite the clean and uncluttered design, the Range Rover 2022 carries luxurious features and new engine options. This complements the Range Rover trademarks: strong waistline, short overhangs, a tapering rear, and a rising sill line.
“The new Range Rover is a superb manifestation of our vision to create the world’s most desirable luxury vehicle, for the most discerning of customers.” Jaguar Land Rover’s chief executive, Thierry Bolloré said. He also added how the SUV “writes the next chapter in the unique story of pioneering innovation that has been a Range Rover hallmark for more than 50 years.”
Range Rover 2022’s engines and powertrains
The new Range Rover 2022 comes with at least four different powertrains to choose from. Its entry-level offering is a 3.0-litre turbocharged I6 bolstered by a 48-volt mild-hybrid system that can produce 395 horsepower and 406 pound-feet of torque.
Through a new BMW-sourced 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8, the entry-level version can rev up to 523 horsepower and 553 pound-feet of torque, replacing Range Rover’s old supercharged 5.0-litre. The majority of the units will carry this engine.
A plug-in hybrid powertrain with a 38.2-kilowatt-hour lithium-ion battery pack will also be available. It can produce 62 miles of electric-only range and will be available in the US for the 2023 model year. Lastly, with plug-in hybrid also comes the pure EV powertrain. This all-electric variant is expected to arrive in 2024.
All powertrains will have an eight-speed automatic gearbox and a four-wheel-drive system with Terrain Response 2 technology.
Range Rover 2022 exterior
As it preserves some of the traditional Range Rover trademarks, the 2022 model exemplifies notable characters of its own. These include a front grille refined into a new-look pattern, sharper digital LED headlights, and a distinct boat tail rear.
Massimo Frascella, Land Rover’s Design Director, said the SUV’s design talks a lot about reductionism. This is evident at its rear design, where its tail-light and indicators are in all solid black finish.
Panning to the door is its innovative translation into a power-assisted door. This option features integrated hazard detection, soft-close capability, and anti-pinch. In addition, the doors can also be controlled from the infotainment screen. Clients will have the option of 20-23 inch alloy wheels.
Aside from offering five colors, “First Edition” of the Range Rover 2022 will exclusively be in “Sunset Gold Satin” hue. It will also be in a short-wheelbase and long-wheelbase with corresponding features for each type.
Range Rover 2022 technology and interior
The interior of the Range Rover 2022 is also a nod to the minimalist exteriors. Greeting you from the inside is the all-leather seats. Adjacently is the SUV’s dashboard-mounted with a 13.1-inch display that features a Pivi Pro infotainment system.
Furthermore, the passenger’s seats also get high-definition 11.4-inch screens fitted at the back of the front seats when you avail of a Rear Seat Entertainment Package. In addition, an optional 1,600W 35-speaker Meridian Signature audio system is available.
Surprisingly, the new Range Rover offers seating for seven. That is, if you want a Long Wheelbase body design, the seat for its third row can be specified. The standard-wheelbase form has only five seats.
When talking about its technology, the new Range Rover has a Modular Longitudinal Architecture (MLA-Flex) Platform that helps improve its comfortability and capability.
Range Rover SV models will be available for those who want to personalise their vehicles.
The list of features, possibilities, offerings, and options goes on for the Range Rover 2022. It will be available in SE, HSE, Autobiography, and a First Edition model with a starting price of £94,400 (approximately $130,000).
With these possibilities, it is no doubt that the Range Rover 2022 is looking best than ever.
Above and Beyond, they say, that’s a Land Rover way.
