2021 Range Rover: what we know so far
All-new Range Rover luxury SUV will feature electrified engines and new styling – here’s everything you need to know…
The original Range Rover revolutionised the way we viewed off-roaders when it was launched just over 50 years ago. It combined potent engines, a refined ride and a plush interior with genuine mud-plugging ability, becoming popular with farmers and royalty alike in the process. Like the first, the all-new, fifth-generation Range Rover will be able to cross continents and climb mountains while keeping its occupants in the lap of luxury.
The new model will retain the tall, boxy shape of its predecessors and retains the trademark deep, wide grille at the front and split tailgate at the rear. Modern styling touches will include slim headlights, similar to those of the Range Rover Velar, and stacked rear lights like those of the recently launched Defender.
While its outward appearance won’t change heavily, though, underneath the new Range Rover will represent a big leap forward in terms of technology. For starters, the car sits on new underpinnings which should be stronger and lighter than those of today’s car. Most versions will also come with a new rear-wheel steering system designed to make the car easier to manoeuvre around town.
