Range Rover Next

Next Range Rover appears to drop the roof crossbeam for wide open views

It’s possible they add the crossbeam as a separate part from the main body. I’m going hope it’s gone and the next Range Rover, L460, gets even more glass. It’s also possible that this is what a fixed glass roof looks like vs. a roof that slides open.

Also don’t forget we might be seeing some of that Continental Intelligent Glass Control up there

Does anyone have a BIW pic of the L405 for rear side window size comparison? The one past the C pillar, I can’t remember what they call it – DLO or something?

Is the next Range Rover getting Bluetooth headphones?

Looks like the FCC short-term confidentiality expired for the HEM module coming in the next Range Rover(L460). It feels like an oversight because this appears to be the only thing recently detailed publicly.

This could just be the Bluetooth receiver for the car but they are calling it the “Headphone Emitter Module” DS-L460-150401-E01-21

Not overly interesting but fun when info slips out, even a little peak of the L460 in engineering diagram form:

Enjoy!

The next Range Rover, looks to be the real thing now #rangerover

So the time has come, this is now the Range Rover.

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…

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

2013-Ford-Fusion[1]2011-Aston-Martin-DB9-Front-View[1]

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!
