The new Range Rover features improved drag performance, 3rd generation Active Noise Cancellation and a range of 8 powertrains available.
Land Rover has officially unveiled the new Range Rover. The newcomer has 4-, 5- and 7-seater configurations on a standard or long wheelbase. In 2024, the automaker will introduce an all-electric variant of the Range Rover.
The new SUV comes in SE, HSE and Autobiography versions. The First Edition, which will be available during the first year of production, is based on the range-topping Autobiography trim.
Aerodynamic drag coefficient of a passenger car
Well-designed body surfaces provide a modern appearance and a good streamlining performance. The 2022 Land Rover Range Rover has a drag coefficient of 0.30. This is higher than some passenger cars.
Silence in the cabin
A third-generation active noise cancellation system monitors wheel vibrations, tire noise and engine sounds. The technology generates a jamming signal that is played through 35 speakers of the 1600W Meridian Signature speaker system.
What’s more, additional 20W speakers in four main headrests provide individual quiet zones similar to the effect of quality headphones.
Powertrains of the new Range Rover:
- P440e and P510e – for plug-in hybrid models
- mild-hybrid gasoline P360 and P400 Ingenium
- D250, D300 and D350 diesel engines
- P530 twin-turbo V8 engine
The pair of innovative plug-in hybrid powertrains allow up to 80 km (50 miles) of electric range in real conditions.
All-wheel steering is standard for the new Range Rover. The electric rear axle enables a steering angle of up to 7 degrees and turns out of sync with the front wheels at low speeds. As a result, Range Rover’s turning diameter is less than 11 m (433 inches) – the smallest for a Land Rover SUV. At higher speeds, the rear axle steers in sync with the front wheels to increase stability and comfort.
The new Range Rover is already available to order.
