A refreshed Range Rover, powered by JLR’s new supercharged 5.0-litre V8, has been confirmed for an April on-sale date.
This lightly disguised prototype doesn’t hide the mild exterior revisions that Land Rover has made to the Range Rover.
Behind the perforated ‘bumper-bra’ are a new grille, headlamps and bumper moulding, while tape over the tail lamps hides new LED lights.
A mildly revised interior includes a new steering wheel, chrome trim around the centre console and revised sat-nav system.
The biggest change is the new supercharged V8, with more performance yet better fuel economy and lower emissions.
Land Rover is also understood to have revised the chassis and steering for the more powerful Range Rover V8, improvements that also carry over to the Range Rover TDV8.
These revisions will attempt to arrest a slide in Range Rover sales, which slipped to around 5000 in the UK and 7000 in the US last year.
