Range Rover Velar Heads to the US Later This Year With $50,895 Price Tag

Land Rover has introduced the fourth member of the Range Rover family.

Called the Range Rover Velar, the midsize luxury SUV aims to deliver new levels of refinement, elegance and technology to the segment. The model will slot between the existing Evoque and Range Rover Sport offerings, riding on a 113.15-inch wheelbase to offer a 34.4-cubic feet luggage compartment. Like all Range Rover vehicles, the Velar offers exceptional capability on a variety of surfaces, terrains and weather conditions. The standard coil springs offer 8.38 inches of ground clearance, while the optional four-corner air suspension gives 9.88 inches.

Land Rover says the Range Rover Velar was 'created from a clean sheet using Jaguar Land Roverís Lightweight Aluminum Architecture' and represents the next chapter of the automakerís success story. Its design is the most aerodynamically-efficient Land Rover ever produced, and helping contribute to its coefficient of drag of only 0.32Cd are flush deployable door handles.

The cabin houses a new Land Rover Touch Pro Duo infotainment system, featuring two 10-inch high-definition touchscreens that integrate seamlessly into the cabin architecture to reduce the complexity of the dash. Unique to the segment is a premium textile seat material that is available as an optional alternative to leather.

In the U.S., the Range Rover Velar will launch with several powertrain offerings, with the base model equipped with a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine generating 247 horsepower. There is also a four-cylinder Ingenium diesel engine offering 180 hp and 317 pound-feet of torque, while at the top of the range is the powerful supercharged V6 gasoline engine with 380 hp. All engines are matched to an eight-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive with Intelligent Driveline Dynamics. Along with the three different powertrains, buyers can choose from four specifications including Standard, S, SE or HSE.

At launch is a special First Edition model available exclusively in one of three colors: Corris Grey, Silicon Silver or Flux Silver. It will be limited to approximately 500 units in the U.S. with a starting price of $90,295 and is powered solely by the 3.0-liter supercharged V6 engine. Extra features that come standard on the First Edition model include full-extended leather interior, copper weave carbon fiber trim finisher, perforated Windsor leather seats finished in two-tone Light Oyster/Ebony, special 22-inch Split-Spoke wheels with diamond-turned finish and a 1,600-watt Meridian Signature Sound System.

The Velar is beautiful, inside and out. And though only very slightly physically smaller than the RR Sport, slots a rung below it, so the pricing is much more palatable. Because it's right sized (in comparison to the Evoque), and has that great interior, I predict it'll be the best selling Range Rover model in no time.
