Land Rover isn't too worried about Bentley and Rolls-Royce stealing market share away from its flagship Range Rover with their upcoming luxury crossovers. So we can expect more upscale versions, but not an entirely separate model to upstage the existing one.
Land Rover wanted to put the Range Rover Sport Hybrid to the test, and to do so, it sent a team on a very chilly road trip. The group hooked up a winterized Airstream to the back of the electrified SUV and drove it to the company's test center in the arctic circle.
Land Rover's Autobiography line is now entering its third decade of pimping out ultra-luxurious Range Rovers. The bigger question, though, is what the British SUV manufacturer has planned next to fend off the impending advances of Rolls-Royce, Bentley and Maybach.

Jaguar Land Rover is clearly hitting the ground running with its new Special Vehicle Operations division. The only question is, what kind of ground surface is that, exactly? According to the latest intel coming in from the UK, that the skunkworks department could be focusing its attention next on a rough-and-tumble, off-road version of the Range Rover.
