Land Rover officially unveiled The Range Rover Velar during this year’s annual Geneva Motor Show, which is set to bridge the gap between the Evoque and the Sport. Set to go on sale this summer for $50,895 USD to $90,295 USD, the Velar accounts for the lowest vehicle in the Range Rover arsenal, as it is effectively a crossover.
Buyers from the U.S. will then choose from three engine options: Ingenium two-liter diesel producing 180 horsepower and 317 lb-ft of torque, a two-liter turbo gas unit producing 247 horsepower, and a 380-horsepower three-liter V6 supercharged gas engine. The lone transmission is the ZF eight-speed automatic, and permanent four-wheel-drive is also optioned.
“We wanted to elevate Range Rover’s design DNA to a new level,” says Massimo Frascella, Land Rover’s exterior creative director. “We were looking for a new level of simplicity, with the flush door handles and slim LED lights. This will do so much for Range Rover.”
