Earlier this week we teased a preliminary image of the new 2018 Range Rover Velar. Now the modern and elegant SUV has officially been unveiled. The Velar will hit the market with a price range of $50,895 USD to $90,295 USD and will occupy the space as the lowest vehicle in the Range Rover lineup. The new SUV will be equipped with air suspension and Land Rover’s terrain response system perfect for various driving environments. Three options will be available: 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.”
The 2018 Range Rover Velar will hit showrooms this summer.
