We’ll start in the cabin and is the story looks familiar, it is because the Range Rover’s traditional layout has been brought closer to that of the Evoque. This means that the RR will trade its unique “tea saloon” interior setup for one that aims to offer a more dynamic feeling.

The Evoque is also a good indicator for the exterior design, but this doesn’t refer to the silhouette of the car, but to the details. The front and the rear fascias are still completely covered in Land Rover’s World War II-inspired camouflage, so we can’t get any new details.

As you can see in the adjacent images, the vehicle will only slightly have its overall shape modified, with the roofline and rear window being brought a bit closer to that of the current Range Rover Sport - the camouflage tries to hide this with fake rear window side elements. but you can see the raked line (compared to the current generation) in the photos that show the vehicle from behind.

All the aforementioned dynamic styling cues should also be translated into the on-road handling, as the Range Rover will ride on a modified version of the Jaguar XJ’s aluminum platform, as well as use composite materials for the body, all in order to save weight.

The 2013 Range Rover, is expected to lose around 450 kg (992 lbs) and should tip the scales at over 2,200 kg (4,850 lbs). As for the engine range, this will be inherited from the current model, but considering that they’ll have to deal with significantly less weight, both the efficiency and the driving dynamics chapters will be significantly improved.
