With the current model Range Rover seeing more than just one face lift since it's introduction in 2003, we've all known that Land Rover would soon be releasing a new flagship model. The question however was what would it look like, and would it retain that class-leading off-highway performance that we've come to expect. In true Land Rover fashion, it appears there's a leak, but this time it's not from the engine or gearbox, it's from their marketing department with these images of the all-new 2014 Range Rover.

Even though the new Range Rover appears to be the lovechild of a Ford Explorer and a Range Rover Evoque, it's still a great looking car...and there's no mistaking it for anything other than a Range Rover. The more aerodynamic shape still retains some key design elements that have been with the model since it's introduction such as the floating roof and clam shell hood. It's also rumored that the vehicle will be constructed nearly entirely of aluminum, shedding almost 600 pounds, resulting in better fuel economy and performance. There have also been rumors of a long wheel base model offered as was traditionally done with earlier model Range Rovers.
There's no word yet on what engines will be available will for the newest Rangie, we'd suspect that Land Rover will likely use the new 5.0L V8 borrowed from Jaguar. It would only make sense for Land Rover to also offer a supercharged model as they've done in the past, but we've heard rumors that the supercharger may possibly be dropped for a turbocharged model to increase efficiency and economy as was done on the Evoque.
Unfortunately, we've heard few rumors of a diesel model reaching the United States.
