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.
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.
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
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.
