Land Rover is always coming out with something exciting. That’s one of the reasons people love the brand so much. That excitement has reached a fever pitch over the all-new Range Rover Velar. This new crossover was created to fill the gap between the Range Rover Sport and the Range Rover Evoque, and it fills that gap nicely. Sporty and with enough room to seat up to five people, this crossover is sure to please lots of drivers.
You can’t think of a Range Rover without thinking of the engine. Range Rover always manages to impress with its engines, and it has done so yet again. The Range Rover Velar comes with three engine choices, and each one has great specs.
Let’s start with the base option. It might be the base, but it features a 2-liter 4-cylinder engine with a turbocharger. This powerful engine produces 247 horsepower, making it more than capable.
If you prefer diesel, you can get the turbocharged 2-liter diesel-fueled 4-cylinder engine. It produces 180 horsepower and comes in at 317 pound-feet of torque.
You can also go with the top-of-the-line 3-liter V6 engine. This engine has some insane specs. It produces 380 horsepower and can go from 0-60 in a mere 5.3 seconds. That’s really impressive for a crossover.
Easy Driving on All Surfaces
As with most Land Rovers, the Range Rover Velar is built for all conditions. One of the coolest things about it is the 4x4i menu. You just need to glance at the menu to see your steering wheel angle, suspension articulation, Wade Sensing data, slope information, and more. That makes it easy to navigate those big hills you will find on the trail.
If you’re going to drive in all conditions, you need to have some safety features, and the Velar delivers. It has a ton of standard safety features, like Lane Departure Warning and Autonomous Emergency Braking. You can add some extra safety to the vehicle with the Drive Pro package. With features like Traffic Sign Recognition and Adaptive Speed Limiter, you will be safer than you’ve ever been on the road. Plus, these features are sure to impress your friends. Most people have never even seen features like this.
The First Edition Model
The Velar comes with various trims, but the First Edition model is the most intriguing. Land Rover is only making 500 of these, and they will only be sold in the United States. A bunch of the Velar’s trim-specific options come standard in the First Edition, and it is available in satin-silver paint. Plus, it has some unique styling options for the interior and exterior.
