Next-gen Land Rover Range Rover spy shots – Click above for high-res image gallery

Even though it won't hit the streets for another couple of years, the next-generation Land Rover Range Rover is already out on the prowl in development mule stage. Thus, we can't tell what sort of new design elements will be found on the next-generation Range Rover, though the larger, bolted-on wheel arches give off the impression that the next SUV will likely be slightly wider than the one currently on sale.

Expect the usual crop of eight-cylinder powerplants to be available in both naturally aspirated and supercharged variants. There's also been talk of a possible Range Rover Hybrid – a vehicle that would likely make its debut in the SUV's next generation. Our spies are calling this Range Rover a 2013 model, so look for it to debut sometime in 2012. Click through our high-res image gallery to see the full set of spy shots.

      Is it common for RRs to have air intakes or radiators down low infront of the front wheels. This looks very Porche Cayenne 'ish with holes cut into the the front bumper. Also love the black wheels. Are they standard Land Rover options?

        The Opening in front of the wheels are probably cooling ducts for Intercooler or Radiators for the TUrbo or Supercharged Engine. You are right. If that was intake, It will not be a Range Rover

      WHY WOULD WE DO THAT??! the sport is our best selling model. The ones on the truck are already sold.... Land Rover is actually having problems keeping up with demand. So no were not dropping the sport....

        I was thinking that as well, JLR have just a fantastic 12 months despite the global banking crisis. The new V8 Diesel is brilliant and the emerging markets can't get enough JLR products.

      They should release it looking like that. I kind of like it!

      I wonder if Land Rover will install a locking center differential.

      It's a very nice looking truck, however it doesn't look very much different than the current model. Is this the SUV version of the Porsche 911?
      Now if they could only make their way up a few spots from the bottom of the reliability stats.

      Please send us a RR with a turbodiesel.

      I'd suggest that they drop the RR sport, and price the regular RR at Escalade level.

      I hope it will retain its off-road ability and won't be a soft roader.

      Just to let all of the future morons know...

      THIS IS A MULE, NOT THE ACTUAL PRODUCTION MODEL. A MULE IS A TEST VEHICLE WITH THE PREVIOUS GENERATION'S BODY WORK OVER THE UNDERPINNINGS OF THE NEW MODEL. THE OUTSIDE OF THE VEHICLE HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE ACTUAL PRODUCTION MODEL.

      Thank you and have a nice rest of the day with your trolling.

        Elmo calm down you need a big caffeine injection! I got what you were saying.

        I live very near Solihull and this RR mule and Evoque mule are a regular sight on a daily basis but what got me thinking was how fresh looking the current RR despite being a decade old. We also get loads of Aston and Jaguar Mules here as well .There has been a blue Freelander Mule running around with larger than standard wheels and extended arches as well for the last 12 months as well. Its a shame you can't upload pictures on your post like some sites, because I could probaly snap at least a couple a week.
