Land Rover has been spotted on the streets and out in the snow testing its wildly anticipated fourth-generation Range Rover.
The model’s current profile doesn’t show any major changes, with a similar high-rise greenhouse and big glass windows, but a closer look reveals compacted A and C pillars, resulting in sharply raked front and rear windows. Also still somewhat apparent through the cover is the Range’s cat-eye headlights borrowed from the Evoque. Also covered up is a lower rub strip that houses the fog lights and larger air intakes.
A stretched-out tailgate sits in between vertical LED light clusters, another similarity to the Evoque. Previous spy photos have revealed a large touchscreen inside the cabin reminiscent of the Range Rover Sport. For the engine, consumers can expect to see the 5.0-liter V8 again.
To help the Range Rover’s performance and fuel economy, Land Rover has been working to trim its curb weight by roughly 1,000 pounds through the extensive use of aluminum.
