The all new fifth generation Range Rover officially sees daylight in San Francisco, U.S.A and it comes with several different variants.

Land Rover's bold new era has begun with the unveiling of the highly-anticipated fifth generation Range Rover. The flagship model has been severely upgraded all around and has also been electrified in accordance to the carmaker's comprehensive plan to cut emissions across its lineup.

On first glance, the all new Range Rover has been completely redesigned without losing its instantly recognisable and iconic silhouette. Land Rover did not mess with a successful formula here. Rather, the carmaker just simply set out to create a new iteration of an SUV that mimics its predecessor, only this time much better.

Rear of the Rangie is modern and minimalistic
For instance, there is now a sizeable gloss black panel at the back that incorporates vertical brake lights and indicators. According to Land Rover staff, this new design could well become a new signature design language that will also appear on the next generation of Range Rover models.

Also at the rear, the flagship Rangie retains its utilitarian disposition. The split-folding tailgate remains as before, with the lower portion folding down. In addition, there is now a new movable panel that can be folded up to serve as a backrest, allowing the tailgate to transform into a bench.

13.1-inch infotainment system is easy to use
In all, the sheet metal remains to be coherent and clear while the cabin follows a minimalist theme that's contemporary, current and yet concise. It's undoubtedly tech-savvy, too - with a sharp and crisp 13.1-inch Pivi Pro infotainment system taking centre stage - but not to the point of being overwhelming. Everything in here spells luxury, as you'd expect from a Rangie. Fit and finish is top notch, materials used are of high quality and space is the royal order of the day.

At launch, there are several powertrains available. You can have a choice of three engine options - a 3.0-litre six-cylinder turbocharged mild hybrid petrol engine that's good for 394bhp and 550Nm of torque, a 3.0-litre six-cylinder mild hybrid diesel engine that produces 346bhp and 700Nm of torque and a juicy 4.4-litre bi-turbo V8 powerplant that will churn out 523bhp and 750Nm of twisting force.

The Range Rover SV is highly customisable
The highly customisable Range Rover SV is also available. The new car will offer customers more scope for personalisation then before. In fact, according to the carmaker, the Range Rover SV can be configured in up to 1.6 million different ways. While the engine won’t be any different from the regular Range Rover, the SV variant gets to enjoy a range of different specific colours, interior wood veneers and differently-styled wheels.

Interestingly, there are also two plug-in hybrid variants available on the flagship SUV - a 434bhp or a 503bhp - both of which come with an official electric-only range of 113km. According to the carmaker, a Range Rover electric SUV is due to arrive some time in 2024.

Two sizes of the Range Rover will be available in Singapore - a standard and a long wheelbase. Going against tough and lavish peers such as the Aston Martin DBX, Bentley Bentayga as well as BMW X7, the all new fifth generation Range Rover is expected to reach Singapore middle this year.
