Currently reading: New 2021 Range Rover to be officially revealed today
Fifth-generation Range Rover was previewed in leaked images but full details arrive this evening

The new, fifth-generation Range Rover will be official revealed by Land Rover later today (26 October) after a selection of images leaked online previewed the final design. 

The new Range Rover has been officially revealed. See it here. 

Although we can't make out the overall cabin design, a few clues can be gleaned from the two images showing different angles – now confirmed by the leaked images. The first is a central touchscreen - that appears to be production-spec - which sits proud of the dash centre and is significantly larger than before. It also appears to be running a further developed version of Jaguar Land Rover's latest Pivi Pro operating system. 

A familiar digital dial display is visible, too, though other elements of this prototype's cabin are either covered up or unfinished. We can see a gearlever borrowed from Jaguar's recently updated model range, but there's no indication of it being for production. Haptic feedback controls can be seen on the steering wheel, too.

Earlier mules sported a quad-exit exhaust, suggesting they packed the range-topping V8 engine option, which for the fifth-generation car will be a 4.4-litre turbocharged unit borrowed from BMW.

One image (below) shows off the rear-wheel steering system that will make its debut on the new Range Rover. It's not yet known which variants will receive the system, but it gives clues as to the flexibility of the car's new MLA architecture. 

Previously, the shorter, standard Range Rover was caught on video at the Nürburgring, being pushed to its limits during the usual manufacturer pool, where makers bring prototypes of all shapes and sizes to be put through their paces. 

Featuring a wider stance aided by what looks like a more pronounced shoulder line, wider wheel arches and an imposing front end, the new SUV appears to balance a styling evolution with the tradition that customers expect.

Will there be a market for a 2 ton Chelsea Tractor in the next few years, whatever it it is powered by? Most people who drive them have no spatial awareness and just clog up roads trying to drive and park.

It looks nice, but, as most here say it's the best off reader, why has there never been, other than the first model way back in the mists of time, has the never been a basic, hose out interior everyday mud plugger?, I'd it because most don actually go off road?, the only mud they see is on the Road, there must be better of roaders than the Range Rover, who does the best interior though?

"off reader" - You mean off roader. Off reader is someone who sees a report about Lamd Rover cars and takes off and away

I would guess this is because the Range Rover has to be luxurious. It's quite hard to make a comfortable, luxurious cabin filled with tech that you can hose out, I would guess.

Not convinced by these images. I'm all for an evolutionary approach to the Range Rover's styling and I'm pleased the basic form remain the same, but the front end looks like a light facelift and doesn't gel with the more heavily revised rear. And why are the side vents on the front doors? That seems odd. Maybe better pictures might show it more favourably?

Agree 100%. I love iterative design because it ages well. I'm not sure this will. The fake "hockey" vents that the current model has at least have a bit of flow with the lines.
