The new 2022 Range Rover is the first vehicle to feature Land Rover’s new adaptable Modular Longitudinal Architecture, which blends sophisticated technology with contemporary elegance to provide unparalleled refinement for every passenger. In 2024 the all-electric Range Rover will be rolled out, as part of Land Rover’s new Reimagine plan, which includes an all-electric engine for the company’s first luxury SUV.
“The New Range Rover is a superb manifestation of our vision to create the world’s most desirable luxury vehicles, for the most discerning of customers. It writes the next chapter in the unique story of pioneering innovation that has been a Range Rover hallmark for more than 50 years,” said Thierry Bolloré, CEO of Jaguar Land Rover

New technologies for the flagship model
Every facet of this premium SUV, from its unrivaled capability and quick handling to its unparalleled refinement, is underpinned by Land Rover’s innovative flexible Modular Longitudinal Architecture, MLA-Flex. The New Range Rover will set unique standards for quality by integrating cutting-edge technical methods with new degrees of virtual development and Land Rover’s rigorous development program.
A pair of innovative Extended Range plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) powertrains emit less than 30 grams per kilometer and have a pure-electric driving range of up to 100 kilometers (62 miles), with an estimated actual range of up to 80 kilometers (50 miles), allowing most Range Rover customers to perform up to 75% of their trips on electric power alone.
The 2022 Range Rover is designed with tradition and elegance in mind
The lowering roofline, powerful midsection, and rising sill edge are three lines that can be traced back through generations to identify the New Range Rover. These distinguishing elements blend with a short front overhang and a redesigned boat tail rear to produce an exquisite appearance that expresses Range Rover’s unrivaled gravitas.
Thanks to a specifically built concealed waist finisher, the rounded edge of the door meet the glass in a simple, clean finish, showcasing Land Rover’s attention to detail. To give the appearance that the vehicle was machined from a solid block, the design-enabling technology is combined with flush glass, hidden-until-lit lighting, and fine detailing.
The refined surfaces give the vehicle a clean, modern look while also contributing to a drag coefficient of 0.30, making it the world’s most aerodynamically effective premium SUV.
The sumptuous interior is supported by current, intuitive, and relevant technology that is meant to function in harmony with the best materials and wellness advances to provide a tranquil refuge for all passengers, making every journey an unforgettable experience.
The interior is made so you will not want to get out… ever
Advanced speaker technology relies on the MLA-Flex body architecture’s basic elegance to create soothing cabin tranquility, assuring passengers have a first-class journey. It has a 1,600-watt Meridian Signature Sound System, with extra 20-watt speakers in the four primary headrests for the most immersive sound experience.
The Active Noise Cancellation system, now in its third iteration, detects wheel vibrations, tire noise, and engine noises in the interior and creates a canceling signal that is broadcast via the system’s 35 speakers. Each of the four main cabin passengers has a pair of 60mm diameter speakers in their headrests, which create personal quiet zones comparable to the effect of high-end headphones.
Cabin Air Purification Pro3 is the conclusion of the New Range Rover’s pioneering technology, which provides new standards of wellness to the luxury SUV category. It combines allergen reduction and pathogen elimination with dual-nanoeTM X technology to help dramatically decrease odors and viruses, while CO2 Management and PM2.5 Cabin Air Filtration improve air quality.
Scientific evidence shows that advanced nanoeTM X technology may drastically decrease viruses and germs, including SARS-CoV-2 viruses3. Because the cutting-edge technology works in the air, particles are captured and neutralized without having to travel through a filter. The efficacy of a second nanoeTM X device in Row 2 is improved for all passengers.
“The New Range Rover combines supreme on-road and all-terrain capability with electrified propulsion and new levels of connected capability. In the quest for comfort, we have been obsessed with human science and understanding brain activity to minimise cognitive impact and ensure these advanced technologies work in absolute harmony, creating a truly effortless driving experience. It’s an engineer’s duty to make people’s lives better, and that’s exactly what the New Range Rover will do for you.”, stated Nick Rogers, Executive Director, Product Engineering, Jaguar Land Rover
Dedication for the best ride money can buy
Thanks to innovative hardware and software technologies functioning in perfect harmony, enabled by the new MLA-Flex body design, the Land Rover flagship offers the epitome of refined capabilities.
Land Rover’s Integrated Chassis Control – a single management system for a set of innovative technologies that customize the vehicle dynamics to suit every mile of each and every voyage, to pre-emptively and responsively fine-tune the driving dynamics – is responsible for this unrivaled breadth of dynamic capability.
Every New Range Rover comes standard with All-Wheel Steering, which provides a smooth ride with better high-speed stability and low-speed maneuverability, making it equally at home on the highway and in congested city streets.
The New Range Rover boasts the lowest turning circle of any Land Rover, with an electronically controlled rear axle that gives up to seven degrees of steering angle and rotates out-of-phase with the front wheels at low speeds. For improved stability and comfort at greater speeds, the rear axle spins in phase with the front wheels.
The New Range Rover also has Dynamic Response Pro, which is a first for Land Rover. With a torque capacity of up to 1,400Nm delivered into the anti-roll bars to keep body motions under control, the new active 48-volt electronic roll control system is quicker and more economical than a hydraulic configuration.
Fully independent air suspension efficiently separates the interior from surface defects, ensuring calm composure at all times. It combines industry-leading air spring volumes with twin-valve dampers, all controlled by Adaptive Dynamics control software created in-house.
Land Rover’s Intelligent Driveline Dynamics (IDD) system controls the intelligent all-wheel drive (iAWD) transmission, which tracks grip levels and driver inputs 100 times per second to predictably distribute torque between the front and rear axles, as well as across the rear axle, for optimal traction on and off-road.
An Active Locking Rear Differential is standard on every Range Rover. This improves grip from the rear axle during high-speed turning, on slick terrain, and off-road wheel articulation, giving the driver more confidence.
All of this technology is fed into Land Rover’s award-winning Terrain Response 2 system, which uses the different chassis systems to automatically deliver the best settings for the surroundings from a menu of six driving modes, reducing driver effort on all terrains.
The driver may also manually pick the most suited setting or utilize Configurable Terrain Response to build a custom chassis set-up.
In the first year of production, a First Edition version will be available
The new premium SUV is offered in three trim levels: SE, HSE, and Autobiography. Throughout the first year of manufacturing, a First Edition will be offered, based on the Autobiography and sporting a unique specification. It’s only available in a Sunset Gold Satin finish, with five exterior colors to choose from.
Five seats are offered in both Standard (SWB) and Long Wheelbase (LWB) body designs, with the New Range Rover LWB model adding the third row for greater comfort for up to seven persons.
