See And Hear 2022 Range Rover Prototype Howl In Agony At The ‘Ring

My friends, this video is barely a minute long, but it might be the coolest car video you see today. This is because everyone loves fish out of the water stories, and in the automotive business, you can’t get away from the water of a top-tier SUV that circles the Nürburgring.

There is no doubt that this Range Rover is giving it all in the name of research and development. While some Land Rover models aim to tame the tarmac, our sources believe this is the standard Range Rover that would prefer softer, looser surfaces at slower speeds. This is actually the same test vehicle we saw on camera earlier in August, fitted with a roll cage for unknown reasons. Then again, if we were driving a large prototype SUV at breakneck speeds on a track with more blind corners than Stevie Wonder’s house, we would also want a roll cage.

We previously reported that this prototype probably didn’t have a V8, due to the exhaust layout. This video suggests otherwise, as we hear a very deep growl from the V8 amid the eerie howl of the tires. The question is, what kind of V8 do we mean? Rumors suggest that the current 5.0-liter supercharged V8 will be phased out in favor of BMW’s 4.4-liter twin-turbo mill. This is one of the many possible powertrain changes, as Land Rover takes its Range Rover into new territory with an all-new modular longitudinal architecture platform. It will be able to support internal combustion powertrains as well as hybrid and fully electric systems.

In terms of size, the new platform is expected to keep Range Rover’s current dimensions mostly intact. From what we can see through the camouflage, the exterior styling will be an evolution of the familiar SUV shape. The interior is expected to be inundated with technologies that support both on-road comfort and off-road capabilities, although the extent of autonomous systems is not yet known.

We don’t expect a full reveal anytime soon. Current discussions suggest the new Range Rover will debut later in 2021 as a 2022 model.
