Range Rover Next

Another 2013 Range Rover L405 in the wild. I bet this is the final vehicle. #rangerover

Similar to what we saw a few weeks back, it’s another new Range Rover with the lighter camo and Trade plates.  The final shape is very clear.

Some highlights:

Smaller details are being confirmed – horizontal metallic trim, fog lights and vents.  In this close up shot, does it look a little bit like a Freelander(LR2)??

And another shot of the mysterious back of the front seat, actually in this shot it does look more like a tray table than I’ve seen before.

More of that glass split roof.

Even some actual Range Rover badging on the wheels!

The real thing will be here soon.

Do you see what I see, the Ford Explorer vs the Next Range Rover, the lights #rangerover L405

The Explorer now makes me angry, every time I see it, every time…

And lastly, the rear view with matching spoiler and horizontal chrome trim bar:

It’s not like Ford has ever done something like this before, using design cues from the vehicles it previously owned…

J Mays, Ford designer, told Automobile that he just didn’t see it…

Some may remember this too: “We wish our friends the best of luck with their new vehicle”

And a final additional insult to injury, the Ford Flex(the floating roof is the least of its problems), still don’t see it Mr. Mays?

I realize they had to get some return on their investment, but come on!

A new view of the next Range Rover L405, IMHO, this is the final version. #rangerover

 

This is a few days old but wanted to get permission before I put up all the shots on this site.  Posted over on the rangerovers.net forums on Tuesday by T.8ATH are some spy shots that are slightly different than what we’ve seen so far.

First, the camo is a different design/pattern/layout from previous mules.  We also see the new glass roof opened in two places.  The new item showing up on the back of the front seats gets a new look.  And finally, all other vehicles I’ve seen have had legitimate number plates, all VX12 or VX61, showing they were registered in the past year or so.  This one has Trade Plates. 

This is just a guess, but I really think we’re looking at the final product.

Enjoy.

Next Range Rover and The Mystery of the Back of the Front Seat… #rangerover l405

A little while back we noticed something attached to the back of the front seats:

Spy-Shots of Cars

Could it be a return of the picnic table?  Seems a little too bolted on in this picture.

Then yesterday with the posting of some interesting new spy shots, we got this new view of back of the front seat:

Could the top shot be a prototype and the bottom the actual item?  What do you think, let us know!!

Yes it’s Photoshopped, but is this what the next Range Rover will look like from the back? L405 #rangerover

Using the original image from the post on carspyshots.net, here’s a very, very rough removal of camo with the addition of RANGE ROVER lettering & the horizontal trim bar.  And yes, it’s been done before, I just wanted a try; there’s something different about using a real image to start with.
