Land Rover is coming close to finishing up the next generation Range Rover as these new spy shots show.
The big surprise, besides the modern art camouflage, is how much camo there is on this particular mule, giving us a clear look of what changes have been done. The overall boxy shape of the current model is still present. The difference will be in the details, with changes like a slightly more upswept beltline, an angled front end, and a sharply raked front and rear window.
The big news for the next generation Range Rover will be in the weight. Land Rover has shed somewhere between 800 to 1,000 lbs thanks to a new aluminum chassis and extensive use of lightweight materials.
Engines are likely to include the naturally-aspirated and supercharged variants of the 5.0L V8 and possibly a hybrid.
