Australian media is reporting the Range Rover lineup will grow before the end of the decade with an all-new model.
According to Motoring, Land Rover believes there's a large gap between the Range Rover Evoque and Range Rover Sport which is why they are cooking up a new model to slot between the two. It will likely be based on a modified platform of the Evoque and will target loyal LR buyers who prefer a five-seat vehicle larger than the Evoque but not as big as the Sport.
Land Rover's design director Gerry McGovern admitted during the ongoing New York Auto Show there are several "white space" opportunities in Range Rover's lineup. Chances are this new model is going to be introduced in 2018 at the earliest and will likely be previewed by a concept in the years to come.
Interestingly, McGovern went on to specify that in September at the Frankfurt Motor Show we will see something new from Land Rover, although the identity of the vehicle is not known at this moment. It could be the production-ready Evoque Cabrio set to go on sale next year or a performance-oriented Discovery Sport.
