The all-new 2021 Land Rover Range Rover has been spied once again. The prototype wears longer wheelbase, and the rear doors are bigger than before. The arriving SUV could also get some type of special edition. However, the regular model will surely get a redesign. Camouflage perfectly hides some exterior parts, but most of the novelties are visible at first glance. The Range Rover will continue with its boxy shape. The front fascia now wears new headlights, and the rear part gets brand-new taillights.

The rear spoiler is visible under the heavy camo, and it looks like it features a completely new shape. From what we saw, the design looks cleaner. The styling looks perfect and very modern. The manufacturer will introduce new architecture. The same platform will underpin Range Rover Sport variant. It is a Modular Longitudinal Architecture.

Hybrid is Coming

For 2021, the arriving model will get some sort of electrification. Most likely, the 2021 Land Rover Range Rover will get a hybrid powertrain. The all-electric version is unlikely to happen in the next two or three years. The Range Rover Hybrid will deploy a plug-in hybrid system. It will be a combination of the electric motor on the rear axle and the four-cylinder gasoline engine.

However, the all-wheel-drive will be optional. Ranger Rover will arrive with 31 miles of all-electric driving range. The hybrid setup should deliver around 355 hp and 365 lb-ft of torque via its 48-volt electric motor. As for the regular Range Rover, once it goes on sale, the biggest rival will be new Bentley Bentayga. For that reason, a new Range Rover will introduce a more powerful engine. The most likely outcome is BMW’s 5.0-liter with over 500 horses. As for the hybrid version, Land Rover is yet to release official specs.
