Range Rover Facelift Spied Fine Tuning New Engine Units

We believe these tests are to fine tune the long rumoured 5.0-liter V8 set to be offered or possibly the new 3.0 liter V6 turbodiesel due to replace the ageing 2.7-liter unit.

The third generation Range Rover has been on the market since 2002, it received a mild facelift in 2006 and these prototypes prove a second facelift will performed on the model in the near future to fill in its long life cycle before an all-new model is launched in 2013.

Pricing of the model places it in the premium segment alongside competitors such as the BMW X5, Audi Q7 and the upcoming Cadillac SLX. With this in mind it is no surprise to learn the Land Rover Range Rover will get LED daytime running headlights and LED taillights to help it fit in. We can also spot some minor changes to the front bumper and grille of the fascia on this prototype caught by our spies whilst doing some rubber burning at Nurburgring in Germany.
