Land Rover has revealed its first long wheelbase Range Rover model in 20 years, and it's heading to Australia in 2014.

The stretched Range Rover promises an extra 140mm of rear leg room, as the body shell has been lengthened in front of the rear wheels.

The extra length also means the rear seats, which are available as a conventional bench seat or individual “Executive Class” seats, can recline to 17 degrees; eight degrees more than the standard wheelbase.

Other interior features include powered side door blinds and a panoramic sunroof for the long wheelbase model, along with increased storage space.

Exterior styling loses none of its trademark Range Rover features, but long wheelbase models will carry a “distinctive ‘L’ badge” on the side.

Three trim levels will be offered with the long wheelbase Range Rover in Australia; Vogue, Vogue SE and Autobiography.

However, Australia misses out on a new top-shelf Autobiography Black variant planned for overseas markets.

Engine options include a 3.0 litre TDV6 turbo-diesel producing 190kW and 600Nm along with the SDV8 diesel, which is good for 250kW and 700Nm.

The 375kW and 625Nm 5.0 litre supercharged V8 is the only petrol engine available.

“With the addition of the Range Rover long wheelbase to our portfolio of luxury SUVs, customers can now choose a vehicle that offers superior levels of interior space and comfort to compete in a market dominated by saloon cars up until this point,” Group Marketing Director of Jaguar Land Rover, Phil Popham, said.

Before its arrival in Australia, the long wheelbase Range Rover has a full diary with appearances at the LA Auto Show and Guangzhou in China next month, while the Autobiography Black will debut at the Dubai Motor Show on November 5.

Pricing has yet to be revealed, but first deliveries of the new long wheelbase Range Rover in Australia are expected in the second quarter of next year.
