All-new 2022 Range Rover revealed!

Great luxury and tech than ever for fifth gen Range Rover

It may look similar to the previous version, but over 50 years in the making, this is in fact, the all-new fifth generation Range Rover, which will also be the last to feature traditional ICE (Internal Combustion Engine) power units. Initially being made available with a series of six-cylinder petrol, mile-hybrid, plug-in hybrids, and diesel engines, as well as a BMW-sourced 4.4-litre V8, an all-electric version of this car will also be introduced in 2024.

2021 Land Rover Discovery Review

The one that’s not a Rangey but you’ll think it is

The current Land Rover Discovery arrived in 2017 and was the first in the lineage not to use old-skool body-on-frame construction. It is now based on the same platform is its more opulent Range Rover and Range Rover Sport siblings. Which of course makes it less Farmer Faisel and more more Sheikh Salman.
