  • The ultimate SUV alternative to saloon cars in the long wheelbase market
  • First Range Rover long wheelbase in 20 years
  • First customer deliveries from Quarter 2 2014
  • Over 840,000 Range Rover vehicles sold since launch in 1970

Land Rover is extending customer appeal of its line-up of luxury SUV vehicles with the launch of a new long wheelbase Range Rover.

The first Range Rover long wheelbase in 20 years, this new model will cater for a growing group of consumers looking for the ultimate SUV, and an alternative to the traditional long wheelbase saloon cars in this segment. Clever packaging has increased rear legroom by 140mm for rear seat passengers and boosted recline to 17 degrees with the executive seating package to provide enhanced comfort and space.

"With the addition of the Range Rover long wheelbase to our portfolio of luxury SUVs, customers can now choose a vehicle that offers superior levels of interior space and comfort to compete in a market dominated by saloon cars up until this point" says Phil Popham, Group Marketing Director, Jaguar Land Rover.


Land Rover will unveil the long wheelbase Range Rover at America's Los Angeles Motor Show from 20th November and, in China, at the Guangzhou Motor Show from 21st November.

Long wheelbase extends customer appeal

An additional 140mm to rear legroom has been achieved by lengthening the bodyshell in front of the rear wheels. Clever packaging ensures the signature floating roof and distinctive Range Rover silhouette have been retained to ensure this addition to the range is instantly recognisable.

Available with either bench or individual Executive Class rear seats, the second row executive style seats can recline to 17 degrees, a full eight degrees more than the nine degrees on the standard wheelbase models. Passenger Seat Away slides the front seat forward to provide additional space and comfort. For added convenience, the long wheelbase is equipped with powered side door blinds and a panoramic sunroof as standard, as well as increased stowage. Range Rover long wheelbase models will carry a distinctive L badge mounted into the exterior accents behind each front wheel arch.

The long wheelbase Range Rover will be offered on Vogue, Vogue SE and Autobiography trim levels and available with a choice of TDV6, SDV8 and 5.0 V8 supercharged powertrains.

This is the first long wheelbase Range Rover since the Range Rover LSE which ran from 1992 to 1994.
