Luxury cars don't just stand out because of their exorbitant prices. Even when it's on backorder, drivers happily wait to purchase a Porsche Taycan because of its unbeatable performance. The exterior designs on luxury models are also quite beautiful, as we can see from Bentley's latest lineup of limos.
It's always a big deal whenever a luxury automaker redesigns its most distinctive models. After ten years, Cars.com reports that the Land Rover Range Rover finally got a fresh new look. Here's every new feature that buyers can enjoy on the redesigned 2022 Range Rover.
Does the newly redesigned Range Rover have any new powertrains?
Five different engines were optional for the outgoing model, but the lineup has been simplified to three engines for 2022. The Land Rover Range Rover SE has the same engine from last year, upgraded to make 395 horsepower. A turbocharged V8 is also on tap that makes 523 horsepower, slightly smaller than the output on the discontinued V8.
Still, drivers needn't be disappointed: the redesigned V8 is reportedly almost a full second faster than last year. Land Rover says that this new Range Rover will retain its impressive towing capacity of 7,716 pounds. 4WD is standard for each engine, as well as an eight-speed automatic transmission.
The previously-available Range Rover plug-in hybrid will return for 2023, with 62 miles of range and 434 horsepower. We can expect to see a fully electric Range Rover in the following year. The PHEV is also confirmed to be supported by the Range Rover's new MLA-Flex architecture.
This system is equipped with active stabilizer bars that can separate when they detect certain road conditions. Dynamic Response Pro is also standard to keep body roll in check during even the most intense off-roading adventures. 4WD aids the SUV's capability with six drive modes, including Wade and Rock Crawl.
New design elements on the Land Rover Range Rover
The redesigned Range Rover looks mostly the same, though Velar fans might recognize the flush door handles and new front overhang. The back has boat-tail headlights, and the front has a new air intake. Integrated fog lights are also included, making the Range Rover even safer when combined with the new maneuvering headlights.
The Range Rover is also available with a long-wheelbase version, giving it a third row to seat seven riders in total. The short-wheelbase model, which is likely less expensive, can only accommodate five riders. Even so, backseat riders have plenty of room to stretch out, so we hope the same will apply to the seven-seater.
The seats themselves are available with two types of leather, heated front seats, and power-adjustability upfront with 16 settings. Higher trims offer massaging and ventilated front seats, plus heated seats for the riders in the back.
What new tech features does the redesigned Range Rover have?
Instead of a dual-screen setup, the Range Rover's infotainment settings are now controlled through one 13-inch touchscreen. The old setup's heavy reliance on touch controls made critics hate it, especially because of its slow response times. Thankfully, Land Rover provided some physical controls as well as haptic feedback for the touch functions.
All trims come standard with a 13-speaker Meridian sound system, complete with noise-canceling technology in the head cushions. Wireless smartphone integration and Amazon Alexa compatibility are both included, and passengers can enjoy an optional rearseat infotainment system.
