2022 Range Rover globally unveiled

Land Rover also confirmed that they will introduce a PHEV version of the 2022 Range Rover in 2023, while a fully electric version is scheduled to arrive in 2024.

Land Rover has officially unveiled the fifth generation of its Range Rover premium SUV. The 2022 Range Rover now comes underpinned by a new platform (MLA-Flex), along with an updated design and a bunch of powertrain options.

The 2022 Range Rover carries forward the clean and minimalistic look from the older model. However, the SUV does come with a bunch of upgrades, including a new set of sharper-looking LED headlamps, a completely redesigned LED taillight, newly designed alloy wheels ranging from 20 to 23-inches, a split tailgate and a floating roof thanks to the blacked-out pillars.

On the inside, the 2022 Range Rover can now be had either with a standard 5-seat configuration or the long-wheelbase version with 7-seats. The fifth-gen model is the first Range Rover to offer a third-row of seats. To incorporate the additional seats, the LWB version of the Range Rover is 200 mm longer than the standard car.

Apart from the additional seats, the 2022 Range Rover also gets a 13.1-inch curved touchscreen infotainment system at the central console. It features the brand's latest Pivi Pro system, along with a bunch of other controls and connected technology, including Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. The SUV can also be had with a pair of 11.4-inch touchscreen tablets mounted on the front seatbacks for the rear passengers.

Being a Land Rover, the 5th-gen Range Rover also comes with all the off-roading capabilities. These include the Terrain Response 2, along with a bunch of off and on-road driver assistance systems.

Powering the 2022 Range Rover is a choice of three engines, all of which are mated to an automatic transmission. The first is a 3.0-litre in-line 6-cylinder turbo-petrol unit paired with a 48V hybrid system, producing 395 BHP and 550 Nm. The SUV also comes with a 3.0-litre V6 diesel unit (for the European market), which produces either 296 BHP or 345 BHP, depending on the variant.

The range-topping model is offered with a 4.4-litre twin-turbocharged V8 engine borrowed from BMW, producing 523 BHP and 749 Nm.

Land Rover also confirmed that they will introduce a PHEV version of the 2022 Range Rover in 2023, while a fully electric version is scheduled to arrive in 2024.
