The next generation Range Rover has been spied during testing recently, so naturally a few details regarding this 2012 model have also appeared in the British press.
The 2012 Range Rover will feature a new platform with an aluminium chassis which aims at a considerable weight loss in order to improve fuel consumption.
The company wants to take 400 Kg off the scale as the 2012 Range Rover will be the first all-alloy off-road vehicle, which means the SUV’s kerb weight is going to be close to 2,100 Kg.
The 2012 Range Rover will also have a slightly longer wheelbase and track, characteristics that will have an impact on interior space, especially for the rear passengers.
As far as performance the 2012 Range Rover will continue to be one of the best offroaders on the market, and powering options will include improved TDV6 and TFV8 diesel engines that will get linked to Start Stop systems.
The 2012 Range Rover will also use a revised 8-speed automatic transmission.
