New Range Rover unveiled with All-aluminum Monocoque

New Range Rover unveiled with  All-aluminum Monocoque
 
 

The new fourth generation Range Rover will debut at the Paris Motor Show. See the first images below.

Jaguar Land Rover has launched official images of All-new Range Rover. It is all set to make its public debut at the Paris Motor Show and will go on sale by early 2013. The all new Range Rover will have so many changes and most significant of them is the adoption of an all-Aluminium monocoque body that makes the new Range Rover 420Kg lighter than the existing one. It becomes more powerful, agile, environment friendly and fuel efficient as the power to weight ratio will be increased. The car also becomes the world’s first Aluminium monocoque SUV and it will be third of this type in JLR’s portfolio. Jaguar XJ and XK are also developed on the same.

The official pictures of the new Range Rover show that there are other detailed changes have been made like wheelbase extension by 100mm, and it seems like that there are similar increases in front and rear tracks. These changes will increase natural stability of the SUV. It also increases the cabin space, the leg space in the second row also has been increased by 120mm. All the important elements of the Range Rover have been retained like the floating roof, the clamshell bonnet, the blacked-out pillars, the two-piece tailgate, the swage lines on the sides and the outstanding ‘Range Rover’ on the bonnet. The new wraparound headlights, which are taken from Evoque with the new grille compliments the front fascia.

The fourth generation of Range Rover comes equipped with next-generation Land Rover's Terrain Response® system, which analyses the current driving conditions and automatically selects the most suitable vehicle settings for the terrain. The fourth-gen Range Rover gets four-corner air suspension, which makes the ride more comfortable than the previous generation and the Halewood automotive manufacturer claims an enhancement in its handling and control.  While the luxurious ride has been retained, the vehicle’s handling and agility have been significantly improved.  The new suspension architecture delivers flatter, more confident cornering, with natural and intuitive steering feel. Land Rover also claims to have taken measures to meticulously optimize the body structure and acoustic lamination of the windscreen and side door glass has significantly reduced noise levels.

John Edwards, Land Rover Global Brand Director was telling about the vehicle, he said: “The new Range Rover preserves the essential, unique character of the vehicle – that special blend of luxury, performance and unmatched all-terrain capability.  However, its clean sheet design and revolutionary lightweight construction have enabled us to transform the experience for luxury vehicle customers, with a step change in comfort, refinement and handling.”

Land Rover Design Director and Chief Creative Officer Gerry McGovern shows faith in the style DNA of legendary Range Rover and said, “Designing the next generation Range Rover, following over forty years of success, came with a huge responsibility to protect the DNA of such an icon. Our design team worked hard to capture the elegant proportions and pure surfaces which have been a feature of the best Range Rover designs.”

The new Range Rover will be offered with three engine options, a new 3.0-litre V6 diesel engine which is the result of years of research, the second is the same 4.4-litre V8, that houses the existing Range Rover, however, this time it has got some changes. And then for the petrol option, it will be the Land Rover’s very own 5.0-litre supercharged V8, which already exists in outgoing model. All engines will drive through an eight-speed ZF automatic transmission. There will be no manual gearbox option.  It gets the new touchscreen system, which we have already seen in the Evoque, facelift version of XF and the 2012 MY XJ.  Also for the first time, the Range Rover gets the rising gear knob. The rear seats also come with the option of a new two-seat Executive Class seating package for the ultimate in rear-seat luxury. The other features include the exclusive Meridian surround sound music systems and power upper and lower tailgates.
