Automobile Magazine has gotten their hands on some information on what Land Rover could be planning for the Range Rover Lineup.
Starting with the Range Rover itself, we know that Land Rover will be showing the next generation model sometime this year, most likely at the Paris Motor Show. But the report says that Land Rover is working a long-wheelbase version of the new Range Rover to appear a year after.
The new long-wheelbase Range Rover will be six inches longer than a standard Range Rover and come with more luxuries. The long-wheelbase model will also come with four seats, instead of five.
The next vehicle in the Range Rover family is the Range Rover Sport. Expected to come out in late 2013, the new Sport will be wider, lower, more aerodynamic, and aggressive than current model. The new Sport will also gain a third-row seat.
Finally, there is the Evoque. Automobile Magazine says Land Rover is deciding whether to do a long-wheelbase, seven seat Evoque. The hold-up lies with the next-generation Freelander (a.k.a. Land Rover LR2 in the U.S.), as it will have a seven-seat model as well. Land Rover sees the two models overlapping, despite the two having different agendas and price points.
