The most articulate Land Rover ever

The Range Rover’s off-road ability was much better than that of any contemporary Land Rover. The reason was axle articulation, on account of those long-travel coil springs.

Based on an all-new platform, the fifth-generation Range Rover is set to hit showrooms towards the end of 2021 in standard- and long-wheelbase forms. Likely to be offered in petrol, diesel, plug-in hybrid and electric guises, the next Range Rover is likely to look similar to the current edition – but it’ll be even more technologically advanced and expensive, especially at the top end.
