Described by Land Rover as a once in a decade event, the company released a blurred image of its new flagship SUV, the 2022 Range Rover, that it plans to unveil on Oct. 26.
In addition, a video briefly flashes a glimpse of the vehicle’s front badge, which includes a hint of the vehicle’s new grille texture.
It’s difficult to tell from the image, but it appears that the new Range Rover retains its classic shape while incorporating some of the Range Rover Velar’s softer cues.
While company officials remain mum on what’s under the hood, don’t be surprised to find Land Rover’s 3.0-liter V-6 mated to a mild hybrid system or a 5.0-liter V-8 among the offerings, given their presence in the current Range Rover line-up, which includes short- and long-wheelbase models.
But whatever form the new Range Rover takes, don’t expect it to vary greatly from what’s come before.
“It doesn’t follow fashion or trend, but by a modernist design philosophy,” said Gerry McGovern, chief creative officer for Jaguar Land Rover, in a statement. “Combined with over 50 years of evolution, it is quite simply the most desirable Range Rover ever created.”
