The redesigned 2013 Land Rover Range Rover made its debut back at the Paris Motor Show, and while there were plenty of great shots showing the iconic SUV in action, Land Rover has released some additional images of the new model playing nicely in Morocco with the original Range Rover. Seeing the two models side by side shows just how far the Range Rover has come, but at the same time how closely related the designs still are.

As a recap, the new Range Rover features extensive use of aluminum, helping to drop around 700 pounds of curb weight compared to the previous model. Upon introduction, it will be powered by a 5.0-liter V8 pumping out 375 horsepower paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission, but we expect a sportier supercharged model to show up eventually, too. We will never doubt the off-road capabilities of this SUV, but the new photos show just how much the new Range Rover can take including some impressive water fording depths. The 2013 Range Rover will have a starting MSRP of $83,500 (*including destination) when it goes on sale in the US by the end of the year.

Until then, check out the photos Land Rover has released showing both the new and old Range Rovers.

      The original model is so much cooler, love it!

        I'm inclined to agree. Honest and totally elegant, in the real sense of the word. I love that convex sill line running from the nose to the tail; beautiful. The new one is a bit tarty, but then that's the blingy world we now live in I suppose.

      I think I'm alone here, but I'm already starting to like the styling of the new Range Rover. That said, there are still some details that really grate, like the fake "vents" on the doors. Gerry McGovern himself said that Land Rovers were about pure design rather than styling. I'm sorry, but this isn't it. I think the styling features on Land Rovers should be present only if there were engineering constraints that necessitate them being there. I liked the designs of Land Rovers circa 2004, when it was all about simplicity and functionality (remember the original Discovery 3 with only one fender vent, because that was all the engine needed?). But then, of course, came the footballers... I think that strength and simplicity is still present on the new Range Rover. The basic form and the proportions are impressive, it's just buried under a lot of unnecessary chintz.

      One looks like a Rover, the other a Ford Flex. I like the real Ford Flex better and it doesn't cost six figures.

      The original is still the better looking of the two.

      Sad part is, the older model is more capable offroad.

      I want the yellow one.

      As a big fan of Lando Rovers, it breaks my heart how little I like this exterior design
      • 2 Years Ago
      Wow, just the wheels on the new RR are bigger than the 1971 RR itself.

      That '71 sure is a classy old gal. I'd love to get my hands on one just like that.
