The redesigned, fifth-generation Land Rover Range Rover has broken cover, ushering in a new vision of luxury travel for the automaker that includes fresh technology, updated looks and a bevy of powertrain options, including a new all-electric model.

"The New Range Rover is a vehicle with a peerless character, from the impeccable restraint of its exterior to the flawless tranquil sanctuary of its cabin. Informed by creative intellect and a desire for perfection, it doesn't follow fashion or trend, but by a modernist design philosophy, combined with over 50 years of evolution, it is quite simply the most desirable Range Rover ever created," said Prof Gerry McGovern OBE, COO of Jaguar Land Rover.

For the 2022 model year, Land Rover will offer both the fourth- and fifth-generation Range Rover for sale. The New Rover will be sold in nine variants with extended wheelbase and seven-seat options. Trim levels are SE, Autobiography and First Edition, which is available only for the first year of production.
