New Range Rover model on the way?
The Jaguar Land Rover group is reportedly hoping to expand its Range Rover line-up with the unveiling of a vehicle called the Range Rover Velar at the 2017 Geneva International Motor Show.
According to British automotive publication, Autocar, the Velar (which will be manufactured at the company’s state-of-the-art Solihull aluminum body and assembly plant in England) will be based on the underpinnings of the Jaguar F-Pace, and will feature a coupe-like roofline. It will fill the void between the Range Rover Evoque (pictured) and Range Rover Sport.
On the powertrain front, the Velar is predicted to be powered by the same four- and six-cylinder engines that currently do duty in the Jaguar and Land Rover range, with the possibility of the 5.0-litre V8 lifted from the SVR performance variant. That, however, remains to be seen.
The 87th Geneva International Motor Show runs from 9 – 19 March 2017. Watch this space for more updates.
