This isn't the first (or second, or third) time we've caught the next-generation Big Daddy Range Rover out testing, but this latest set of spy photos gives us our best look yet at some of the SUV's new exterior details. (Sidenote: We have to commend Jaguar Land Rover for having some of the coolest camouflage patterns in the world.)

As you might expect, the Range Rover's shape hasn't changed too much from the current generation, though we can clearly see a sleeker front fascia with headlamps that seem to incorporate new LED running lights, as well as a slightly sleeker roofline. But the big news for this next-generation vehicle is the huge reduction in weight that's supposedly on tap – reports have estimated that as much as 800 pounds have been shed from the SUV's body. This weight savings is largely due to an all-new aluminum platform, as well as widespread use of lightweight materials throughout the body.

Mum's the word on what's going to be found underhood, but we'd expect the usual range of eight-cylinder engines to be offered here in the United States. Murmurs of a hybrid powertrain have also been spinning 'round the rumormill, so don't rule out the possibility of some electric boost being on tap, as well. Click through the above gallery to see the full slate of spy shots for yourself.

      Good job with the weight reduction. And I agree, that is a coolest camo in town.

      Hmmm...not convinced. For a $70k tag you would easilly expect better than hard plastics, good sitting and a feel of not cheap. I'll wait for the Camaro...killer design and got all the looks. Looking at the side profile of the 'tang "Taurus" comes to mind.

      Considering it is an evolution of the current exterior, why even bother with the camo.

      Front end reminds me of the old Ford Expedition.

      so does the ECU know that before 100mph the speedo is in increments of 20mph but after 100mph it goes in increments of 30mph? lol

      My friend just trade his Range Rover in for a X5 diesel because the Range was getting poor MPG. Talk about 50% better MPG with the X5. He said he would go back to the Range if they offered the diesel here in the states..
