A final decision hasn’t been made and that the company is still preparing a business case for the next-generation Range Rover due in 2013. The current model in V-8 guise weighs almost 6,000 lbs.
A reduction in weight increases both fuel economy and performance. The biggest challenge is how to adopt the expensive rivet-bonded aluminum monocoque body for such a large vehicle. If successful, we may see the next generation LR4 and Range Rover Sport sharing the same technology.
