All new Range Rover gets a whole lot better [w/updated photos & video]

It might look similar to its predecessor, but there is more than meets the eye here

 

Range Rover Interiors

 

 

Like the exterior, the interior also doesn't necessarily move the Range Rover in an all-new direction, but the upgrades are evident throughout. The 2013 Range Rover promises to have an even more opulent cabin than the outgoing model, including an additional 4.7 inches of rear legroom and an optional two-seat package with a rear center console.

 

 

Range Rover Action

 

 

On the engine front, the supercharged V8 and the naturally aspirated, direct-injection, 5.0-liter V-8 are scheduled to return to the 2013 Range Rover lineup. But the big news is a standard eight-speed automatic transmission. Developed by ZF, the eight-speed is likely a close relative to the same unit that has shown up in a wide variety of other vehicles - but this will be its first arrival in a Land Rover product.

 

Also the brand’s Terrain Response off-road system is said to make a return and in the new car it is supposed to adjust the vehicle’s settings automatically in order to fit its environment. Officially, the 2013 Range Rover will make its world debut at the 2012 Paris Motor Show. Keep watching this space for more.
