The new-generation Land Rover Range Rover has been out for quite some time now, but we haven’t seen the entire lineup just yet. The company still has one more body version to uncover: the long wheelbase (LWB) model. Our spy photographers managed to pick one of the LWB versions out for a test drive today.
As expected, the long-wheelbase version will look nearly identical to the standard version, but the rear doors will be much longer than on the normal version and the wheelbase is extended about 150 mm (5.90 inches).
When compared to the base version, the long-wheelbase version will offer more space in the for the rear passengers, making it the perfect car for families that make good use of the rear seats.
Expect to see the new Land Rover Range Rover LWB unveiled later this year. Land Rover expects Russia and China to be the biggest markets for the upcoming Range Rover LWB, but the U.S. will also play an important role, as we are already the biggest market for Land Rover.
On the outside, the LWB version will look identical to the standard version. It will get the same grille and headlights, plus the large air intakes that will provide the best engine cooling.
The LWB model does differentiate itself from the base model from the side view, as you can easily notice that the rear doors are significantly longer and the wheelbase is extended about 150 mm (5.90 inches) to allow more space for the backseat riders. This extended wheelbase is a favorite among families with growing teenagers and business people that do a lot of business out of their SUV. This can also see use by limo companies looking for a plush SUV to haul clients around town in.
