A couple of days ago, a flock of Land Rover prototypes along with the compact five- door Range Rover Evoque and the full size 2013 Range Rover luxury SUV were caught doing test through Death Valley in Eastern California.
I just could guess what is this Evoque did in the Death Valley with its strange camouflage since the five- door model has been unveiled last year at Los Angeles Auto Show. Moreover this vehicle should have arrived in the United States’ markets in October.
Nevertheless the company had many reasons to comment in such situation. It is most likely the company will explain that the engineers of Land Rover were testing the little sister of Range Rover with a different engine arrangement.
On the other hand, things are noticeably can be seen when the 2013 Range Rover was snapped in some events covered in the same precise mask while running around in Europe.
The company’s top model has been built in aluminum chassis and an alloy body shell. It means, compared to the existing model, the vehicle will be much lighter. The vehicle is expected to be launch towards the late of 2012 or in the early 2013.
A range of revised engine lineup will be available to empower the new Range Rover, from V6 and V8 diesels and V8 petrol units. The V8 is both naturally aspirated and supercharged formats which will be later mated to the Land Rover’s 8- speed automatic transmission.
The most interesting information is that the company will develop plug- in hybrid models coupled with diesel and gasoline engines as it employed by the Range e concept which has been presented at the beginning of this year.
At the Death Valley, a pair of Chevrolet Volts also shown up but there was no change compared to the other which has went on sale.
