Caught! Long-Wheelbase 2014 Range Rover

Model Revives Variant Last Seen in 1996

Jul 3, 2013
If bigger is better, and Range Rover is the best of the best of SUVs, then the best is yet to come. We got these spy shots of a minimally cladded long-wheelbase Range Rover testing, which looks like it's probably mere months away from the showroom. Expected to be offered worldwide, the long-wheelbase Range Rover is expected to be most popular in Russia and China, where many are chauffeur-driven and where second-row comfort is a top priority.

The wheelbase stretch is expected to be approximately 6 inches, bringing the total wheelbase to 121 inches, or slightly longer than the standard-wheelbase Cadillac Escalade, and almost identical to the Mercedes-Benz GL . Despite the added length, which would seem like it would facilitate a third row, it's unknown if the long-wheelbase model will be a two- or three-row model.
Powertrain options are expected to remain the same as for the standard-wheelbase Range Rover, including the 510-hp supercharged 5.0-liter V-8. Although the 2013 Range Rover is still offered with JLR's 5.0-liter naturally aspirated V-8, it is expected to adopt the supercharged 3.0-liter V-6 as the base engine for 2014. The LWB model may or may not be offered with the V-6 in the U.S. market.

This is the first long-wheelbase Range Rover variant since the County LWB version of the first-generation Range Rover went out of production in 1996. It was briefly sold alongside the newer second-generation Range Rover, which went on sale in 1994. The fourth-generation Range Rover is comparatively enormous compared with the petite first-generation model, which rode on just a 100-inch wheelbase with an overall length of 176 inches. The current standard-wheelbase Range Rover rides on a 115-inch wheelbase with an overall length of 196.8 inches.
