Above you see the long wheelbase version which was absent during the SUV’s appearances so far. Nothing will be different mechanically, of course, but sales are expected to be targeted primarily at Russia and China where extended cars are very popular.
When it launches, the 2013 Range Rover will be a big step forward for the brand by shedding some 700 lbs thanks to an all-aluminum structure. Because of that, the long wheelbase version will also represent a dramatic improvement over what would otherwise have been an extremely heavy vehicle.
Engine options for the longer version aren’t clear yet, but both of its key markets have deep pockets so it wouldn’t be surprising to see the supercharged V8 as a popular pick when it goes on sale.
