As the cars get updated to the new years versions, we have to admit that the most common change is of course in the engine. However, the Land Rover company decided to go the other way with the new version of their great Range Rover – as they have put the emphasis on the inner side changes of the car. And they are already known as members of the media were allowed to take pictures during the last public Examination of luxury crossover Range Rover. The new generation got also a close look in the cockpit as well.
Attention is drawn to the wide center console with a large touch screen and an electronic instrument panel. Land Rover designers have also changed the style of the multifunction steering wheel and gear lever was removed. To trim the inner side there was leather, wood and aluminum frames applied. Reporters learned that the Range Rover is based on aluminum platform of Jaguar XJ. Using this “trolley” and the widespread use of composite materials in the design of the body, the weight of the car became lighter for 400 kg.
Range Rover 2012 model range engines will be composed out of the current gasoline and diesel engines V6 and V8, which will go through a little modernization, as well as hybrid propulsion system, similar to what was shown on the Range_e concept. The premiere of a new generation of Range Rover is scheduled at the Paris Motor Show.
