I don't like the paint job.

I saw the concept with the suicide doors at the NYIAS. It looked great. It looks like the roofline might of made it to production but can't really tell with the camo and roof rails.

Meh. I hated the backslash C pillar. The concept was effectively a curvy Ford Explorer. The entire brand is becoming blasé. Their vehicles used to have a unique look that was easily identifiable.

As far as I'm concerned the last of the true Rovers are the LR4 and 3rd generation RR's. History and unique design is slowly fading folks. Sorry if you like the new body styles, but they suck and if you are deciding between one, you may as well consider any Japanese suv too since they will be hardly distinguishable.

At first glance, I thought it was an Explorer too.

Not there's anything wrong with that...I like Explorers

Fine by me. The uglier they make the new ones, the more our old ones are worth.

It's funny, every time a new rover comes out this happens. LR3 check, RRS check, new Range Rover check. I'll wait to pass judgement.

It looks fugly to me too, but your statement is true enough, none-the-less! I can't wait to see the threads when (if) a new Defender ever debuts..

But I have to admit to being old school, and resistant to change of Land Rover Core Values. I've probably said it before, but I feel like the last driver that wants his vehicle WITH a Manual Transmission, and WITHOUT Internet Connectivity..

That Incontrol app is cool in the sense they actually have remote start now. That took forever.

Hardly distinguishable until you try to use it off-road.

I personally like the new Range Rover. I would light my lr4 on fire to have it. The only drawback is you have to use low profile tires. I'm sure people are working on aftermarket wheels though like the ones on my lr4.

Personally if the new lr4/5 is diesel and from the camo an evolution of the current truck it will be a nice vehicle

New Range Rover is too curvy. RRS and LR3/4 were fine. They look Roverish. The L322 looks Roverish. The new ones are all designed like everything on the road. It might be the safety laws but their is nothing unique except for the price tag. Discovery Sport is indistinguishable from any other SUV on the road.

I would buy an IFS LR Defender replacement vehicle. IFS is great for the amount of wheeling that I do. The amount of on road driving significantly outweighs off road. Every other company has gone that route. I would not buy an IFS LR Defender replacement vehicle that looks like a curvy-lame-assed-pile with big bling rims.

The redesigned Wrangler is keeping solid axles based on the 2017 mules now sighted. So, not everyone has gone IFS.

Take all the badges off all these 20" wheeled new SUVs and I bet 97% of people couldn't identify the brand/model. And that same crowd would never take theirs off asphalt much less a dirt road. Plus being anchored to the dealer to change a taillight bulb or put air in a tire is hilarious, that's where it's headed. You can have em, I'll buy your leftovers.

You act like an lr3/4 is easy to work on. Who are you kidding? You were going to have someone else repaint your rear crossmember.

You can buy my lr4 when the lr5 comes out.

Little more info starting to leak out. Sure would be cool to see the diesel and/or the 5.0 supercharged. Curious about a SVO off-roader edition!
