Spy Shots: Baby Range Moves Closer to Production

Land Rover LRX

Land Rover's bold LRX concept is inching closer to production, says auto spy photographer Brenda Priddy. Her network of photographers caught this mule, wearing an LR2 body with a shortened rear end and revised front fascia, testing at the Nürburgring.

Expected to carry the Range Rover badge, the LRX will likely draw power from two engine options, a 3.2L gasoline inline-six and a 2.2L four-cylinder turbodiesel. As previewed by the concept, Land Rover may also offer a hybrid 2.0L turbodiesel. The production model should be taller than the concept, allowing for more headroom and come in three- and five-door variants.

It will be unveiled next year and begin sales in 2011.
