The New 2022 Range Rover Brings Luxury to New Heights

The new 2022 Range Rover has been revealed

  • A mild hybrid system is standard

  • The comfort and capabilities of the previous model have been improved upon

  • A PHEV and a fully electric variant will arrive in 2023 and 2024

Land Rover revealed the fifth generation of its Range Rover luxury SUV today. The new model features all of the hallmarks that made the success of the previous generation with added technology.

Renewing a vehicle that is as well known as the Range Rover is no easy task and that might be why Land Rover decided to give it a very evolutionary style that looks like a streamlined and simplified version of the previous model.

On the inside however, the Range Rover shows more change, with a new dashboard that features a floating touch screen already seen on some Jaguar models. Again, the theme seems to be simplicity because very few physical controls are left.

Many new luxury features are available on the Range Rover, such as power closing doors and an electrically operated club table for the rear seat passengers on the SV version.

Under the hood, the entry level engine is the Ingenium inline 6-cylinder engine that receives a mild hybrid system. Optional is a new 4.4L twin-turbocharged V8 engine that produces 523 horsepower, enough to propel the Range Rover up to 60 mph (96 km/h) in 4.4 seconds.

Big changes will happen during this generation’s lifecycle though, since a plug-in hybrid variant (PHEV) will be added to the list in 2023 and a fully electric Range Rover will arrive in 2024.

The PHEV model will combine the six-cylinder engine with a 105-kW electric motor powered by a 38.2 kWh lithium-ion battery. This will provide it with an electric range of 62 miles (100 kilometers) at speeds up to 87 mph (140 km/h) and a power output of 434 horsepower.

A fully electric version of the Range Rover will make its apparition in 2024, but details are not yet known about its powertrain.

As is usual, many configurations are available for the 2023 Range Rover since it is available in short wheelbase and long wheelbase forms with a choice of seating for four, five or seven people, in addition to the two-engine options present at launch.

Additionally, a SV model that is handcrafted by the Special Vehicles Operations will sit at the top of the Range Rover’s Hierarchy when it arrives in 2023. Customers who want one will be able to customise it to their tastes through the SV catalogue of materials and options.

The 2022 Range Rover is now available to order in the United States, starting at $104,000. Canadian prices have yet to be disclosed.
