Prototype Range Rovers Caught Testing! What’s Hiding Under the Skin? [Spy Photos]

Could Land Rover be testing some new technology in these cars?

A big thank you to one of our viewers, Elvin, who spotted these prototype vehicles in Silverthorne, Colorado earlier this month. They caught what appear to be a Range Rover Velar and two Range Rover Sports in the mountains doing some Rocky Mountain testing.

We have been scratching our heads here at the office trying to figure out what is so prototype-y about these Range Rovers, which is why we are turning to you, our audience, for some help.

The exteriors of these Range Rovers appear to have minimal differences from the current models available for sale, so what is Range Rover testing with these heavily camouflaged SUVs? Are they testing new powertrains – could they be diesels or hybrids? We want to hear what you guys think.

Drop us a comment down below and tell us what Range Rover is hiding under all that camouflage!

Thanks again to Elvin for sending us these photos! If you manage to catch some prototypes testing, and want to share those images, send us an email at We would love to feature your prototype photos on our site.

Stay tuned to for more news, views & real-world reviews and, of course, more prototype spy shots like these!

Nathan and I just reviewed the 2018 Land Rover Discovery, to see what we thought, check out the video below:
