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.
