The current gen Range Rover was a lot different than its predecessor, losing almost half a ton of weight in the making. The new aluminium-infused chassis was launched back in 2014 and now the top SUV from Land Rover is set to get a facelift in 2018.
As it is a mid-life update, the platform and exterior are expected to remain the same. However, there are some minor changes to the fascia and some nips and tucks, but no major updates. The headlamps get all-new smart LED internals while the bumpers have been updated for a new look. It also sports new alloys.
While the design is almost the same, the 2018 Range Rover will come with a new touchscreen infotainment system on the waterfall center console. Also, the instrument cluster will be a TFT screen that displays the classic dials along with a number of information. It will also get a panoramic sunroof.
While the 2018 Range Rover hardly gets any changes in the powertrain, the company has decided to advance its electric journey with the launch of its first plug-in hybrid electric mill. With electric motors united with a 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine, the Range Rover will have 404bhp of power and an enormous 640Nm of torque. You can drive it about 50kms on electric power and will need three hours to recharge the batteries with a fast charger.
Scheduled to go on sale in the UK in early 2018, you can expect the new 2018 Range Rover to arrive in India afterwards as it is a CBU.
