After a few photos depicting the new Land Rover Range Rover 2013 have leaked on the internet, the car manufacturer has finally spilled the beans and released their own set of official pictures alongside a not-so-generous list of features and specifications expected from their upcoming SUV. Needless to say the new Range Rover comes with a new slim look, better fuel economy and it's considerably lighter than its predecessor as well.
Unfortunately Land Rover has not revealed too many details regarding what will motivate their upcoming SUV, but they did mention the fact that two V8 engines are in store for the 2013 model. That being said we suspect the new Range Rover to boast the naturally-aspired 5.0 liter V8 engine currently found in their lineup. Nevertheless, higher fuel efficiency and a bump in horsepower are expected from the V8 powerplant once it's fitted on the latest Range Rover. What's interesting is that an eight-speed ZF automatic gearbox is expected to be coupled with the V8 units, so that's a pretty big step up from what the ongoing model has to offer.
Furthermore a new air suspension is also expected to be fitted on the upcoming SUV and although we're once again shooting in the dark when it comes to other technical specifications including the ground clearance, the manufacturer is expected to reveal all there is to know about their latest creation during the Paris Motor Show held in September.
For now we can admire the design of the Range Rover 2013 and draw conclusions from there. The new model boasts a more elegant design with rounded edges and longer lines. The front fascia has been redesigned and features a new set of head lamps that sweep back into the fenders. The taillights have borrowed the same design cue and their position appears to be aligned with the head lamps and the door handles. A new set of wheels are also present on the new model and their design has clearly been inspired by the Evoque.
On the interior one of the aspects Land Rover was eager to announce is the fact that the rear seat leg room has been increased by 4.7 inches. The interior has also been completely redesigned but the apple doesn't fall far from the tree. Although the interior seems to have been completely redrawn, it manages to remain familiar.
