Facelift Rangie spied
22 October 2004

Barely a month after Land Rover announced its 2005 Range Rover, this facelifted 2006-model-year car, codenamed L322, complete with enlarged grille was spied by a reader. After a September update dumping old BMW interior kit in favour of gadgetry borrowed from the new Discovery, the facelift will continue that trend when it’s unveiled at Detroit next January. The car’s BMW-sourced engines and more of its interior componentry will be dropped in favour of newer, cheaper alternatives.

Most significantly, Jaguar-sourced V8 engines will move in under the Rangie’s bonnet - developments of the normally aspirated and supercharged petrol eights in the XJ saloon. They will eventually be followed by a new turbodiesel V8.

Our Verdict

Caterham Seven
