Land Rover teased a new SUV in recent weeks, but it now has unveiled all of the details of its newest model, the Range Rover Velar. The new model is designed to sit between the Evoque and the Sport in the Range Rover lineup, offering luxury and capability all in one package.
Land Rover says it wanted a modern look while also keeping with Range Rover styling, describing it as featuring “formal, horizontal feature lines, floating roof and continuous waistline, through to the taut and tapered lines at the rear.”
The Velar will feature an all-wheel drive system with the option to add four-corner air suspension to provide it with a ground clearance of 9.88 in. (8.38 inches with coil springs) and a wading depth of 25.59 in. (23.62 in. with coil springs). Range Rover also says the Velar will feature the Terrain Response 2 and All Terrain Progress Control3 controls.
The power train options on the Velar includes a 180 hp four-cylinder Ingenium diesel that is rated to produce 317 lb-ft. of torque. A four-cylinder Ingenium gasoline engine rated to produce 247 horsepower and offers impressive acceleration with a 0-60 mph time of 6.4 seconds. The Velar will also have a third power train option of a 380 hp supercharged V6 gasoline engine that improves on the four-cylinders 0-60 mph time to 5.3 seconds.
The Range Rover Velar will be available in four trims, including Standard, S, SE or HSE. Range Rover says pricing starts at $49,900, and the Velar will be in dealerships later this year.
