New spyshots have just emerged depicting a long-wheelbase version of the recently updated and facelifted 2014 Land Rover Range Rover. Reports about a long-wheelbase version of the Range Rover first emerged in mid-2012, and this is the very first time the car has been spotted testing in public.
The following spyshots were captured on British streets and the 2014 Range Rover long-wheelbase immediately stands out from the regular 2014 Range Rover with it being a few inches longer than the standard car therefore enhancing leg-room at the rear.
While details about the 2014 Range Rover long-wheelbase remain fairly scarce at the moment, it’s thought to be targeted directly at the growing Chinese market where chauffeur driven cars are extremely popular in the luxury car market there. One of the fiercest rivals to the 2014 Range Rover long-wheelbase is expected to be the new Bentley SUV expected to launch in the coming years.
The 2014 Range Rover long-wheelbase won’t just be limited to the Chinese market, as it’s assured to also be available in the United States in a variety of specifications. These are predicted to include a supercharged V6 version as well as a 5.0-liter V8 option. Further down the road, the 2014 Range Rover long-wheelbase could be offered as a diesel.
The 2014 Range Rover long-wheelbase is expected to debut at the IAA Frankfurt Auto Show 2013 this year.
