The new 2022 Range Rover from Land Rover factory

Land Rover has been spotted testing a prototype for a redesigned Range Rover.

The new mid-size luxury SUV is expected to debut alongside a redesigned version of the stretched Range Rover Long Wheelbase late next year, which means we'll likely see it arrive as a 2022 model. A new Range Rover Sport should also be coming, likely one year after the Range Rover.

Land Rover only last year introduced an updated Range Rover that offered a new inline-6 engine and mild-hybrid system as the base power train. But the current generation dates back to 2013 so it makes sense the redesigned, fourth-generation model is coming up soon.

Compared to the current Range Rover, Land Rover's design team looks to have implemented a slightly less boxier shape for the redesigned model's cabin. The wheel arches also appear to be a bit more pronounced. Finer details, like the accents in the lights.

Land Rover is working on a Redesing for new Range Rover.

Release date for  Redesign 2022 Range Rover

 The regular as well as long-wheelbase versions of the redesigned, fourth-generation Range Rover are expected on sale in late 2021 as 2022 models. A new Range Rover Sport should also be coming, likely one year after the regular Range Rover.

Underpinning the vehicle will be Land Rover's new MLA (Modular Longitudinal Architecture) platform that debuts this year in a Jaguar XJ. It was previously thought the platform would debut in the redesigned Defender but Land Rover went with an evolution of the D7 platform instead for the off-roader. The D7 platform underpins the outgoing Range Rover and Range Rover Sport, as well as the Discovery.

The MLA platform has been designed to fit battery-electric powertrains and will eventually underpin most models from the Jaguar and Land Rover brands. The platform will also be lighter than the aluminum-intensive D7 platform.

2022 Range Rover Engine

Regarding engine, expect the that 2022 Range Rover Redesign to feature the inline 6 engine and mild-hybrid system. The setup is good for 355 horsepower and 365 pound-feet of torque in base P360 guise and 395 hp and 406 lb-ft in sportier P400 guise.

Above this should be a new plug-in hybrid setup featuring the inline-6 engine mated to an electric motor at the front axle and a second electric motor powering the rear axle. The current Range Rover plug-in hybrid only has a single-electric motor setup. A battery-electric engine will also be offered in the new Range Rover at some point.

It isn't clear if a V-8 will be offered with the redesigned Range Rover, though a deal with BMW Group could potentially make it happen. Jaguar Land Rover and BMW Group are already poised to share some engines and electric engine, and hopefully a V-8 is on the cards.

Production will be handled at Land Rover's plant in Solihull, United Kingdom, where the current generation is built.

After plugging into the electric-car market Porsche isn't anywhere close to being done with its EV offensive in the coming years. According information which we have the new 2022 Porsche Macan will be pure-electric, and thanks to a new report, we now have a clearer idea of when we'll see the Macan EV hit the road. The exception will be some small operation with Rimac.

2022 Porsche Macan Release date

Release date for new 2022 Macan should be at the end of next year. Considering situation with Coronavirus all over the world, this promotion can be postponed.

Competitors of new 2022 Macan

When we look what competitors do on this field, we see the similar action from Ford with the Mustang Mach-E. From the other side, big competitor in this segment is Tesla Cybertruck and new GMC Hummer.

2022 Porsche Macan Engine (Battery)

Porsche executives that point to as much as 700 horsepower (525 kilowatts) in a Turbo S variant. Obviously it won’t actually have a turbocharger – like the Taycan it will follow Porsche’s familiar naming structure for trim levels. That means there will be a standard Turbo and other submodels to spruce up the Macan EV lineup.

Porsche had confirmed the Macan will sit on this so-called Premium Platform Electric (PPE). We don't know much else about the upcoming electric Macan, except that it will feature 800-volt charging technology. Also, he will be produced at the same Leipzig factory that makes the current, fossil-fuel-powered versions of the small crossover.

The Macan has become the company’s best-selling vehicle in a relatively short amount of time. Nixing internal-combustion power completely is something Porsche buyers might not be ready for, but with the speed at which the auto industry is currently evolving, things could be very different come 2024.

2022 Infiniti Q8

Infiniti as Nissan premium brand, alveus look forward for something new, also something a little bit radical. At this point, the production version of the recent sedan concept seems like one of the things we might expect to see. Allegedly, it could come already in the next year, as the 2022 Infiniti Q80.

The new 2022 Infiniti Q80 is still just a rumor, but there is a big number of reports that suggest we could actually see something more than a concept finally. Besides gorgeous styling, we expect to see a completely new approach in terms of design, as this model is expected to be one of the first units to ride on Infiniti’s new platform, which will be all about electrification.

Infiniti R&D

A soft reset for the Infiniti brand and a replacement for the forgotten Q70, which was thrown mercilessly into battle with the Audi A6, BMW 5-series, and Mercedes-Benz E-class. The model adds another 10 to its name to keep pace in the luxury-brand alphanumeric arms race.

Start from 2009, Infiniti has teased gorgeous halo-car concepts of every variety—coupes, sedans, and mid-engined sports cars with hybrid engine—but failed to put any of them into showrooms. We’re told the Q Inspiration concept from this year’s Detroit auto show will actually live up to its name and inspire a production car. And while it won’t be a full-fledged, S-class–sized flagship, its designers and engineers will use the Q80 to set the direction for the rest of the lineup.

The new Infiniti Q80 will ride on a new architecture designed around Infiniti’s plan to offer an electrified engine in every new model starting in 2021, either as a hybrid, pure electric, or range-extended electric vehicle.

2022 Infiniti Q80 Engine

We expect the Q80 to begin life as a hybrid, with a compound powertrain built around the company’s variable-compression-ratio turbocharged inline-four. Eventually it could also be offered as a plug-in hybrid or EV.

Challenge for new Q80

For sure new Q80 will have a strong competition in: Acura RLX Sport Hybrid SH-AWD, BMW 530e iPerformance, Mercedes-Benz E-class hybrid.

Infiniti’s corporate minders are ruthlessly fixated on the bottom line. If the company designs and engineers the Q80 on a spreadsheet, there’s a chance that the mid-sizer will do nothing to advance the brand’s value.

2022 Infiniti Q80 Release date and Price

Although we are still waiting for the official reports, some sources suggest the new model might arrive already in the next year. When it comes to the price, potential rivals start around 50-55.000 dollars, so we may expect something similar from the 2022 Infiniti Q80.

2022 Peugeot 3008 SUV

The new 2022 Peugeot 3008 SUV as a refresh for US market

Peugeot has running the new mission and rebrand their vehicles to re-enter the US market.

Peugeot as one of the largest France automaker,  will make a reappearance in US markets with its midsize SUV, the 2022 Peugeot 3008, sooner than expected. After much market research to prepare for the launch, the automobile maker has decided to return to the American market with a laser focus on the American car buyer and their needs - possibly as soon as 2021.

After a bit of a break from exploring US markets, Peugeot has taken the time to reframe their mission and rebrand their vehicles in preparation for a reemergence into the marketplace. Instead of providing American car buyers with Europe versions of vehicles made to target the European market, the automobile maker has taken stock of the individual needs of each consumer and addressed them. To provide enough time to do this well, the projected release date of their first vehicle into the market was originally 2026, but their newest 3008 SUV may make an appearance as soon as 2022.

Competition and interior of new 2022 Peugeot 3008

If we compare it with competition the size wise the SUV sits just a little larger than a RAV4. Also, manages to offer drivers plenty of space for passengers and cargo. There’s also a plethora of exciting interior features such as a 12.3-inch infotainment system, quilted leather seats, sunroof, Apple CarPlay, and much more. The engine provides just enough sporty power to match the looks with a 1.6L 4cyl turbo engine that doles out up to 165 horsepower and 177 lb-ft of toque.

2022 Peugeot 3008 Release date

Exact release dates have not yet been provided by Peugeot for its reemergence into the US market. However, after taking a look at the 2020 3008, its clear that they have a vehicle that will appeal to the American consumer, possibly prompting a much earlier release than the previously anticipated 2026 date.
