The New Range Rover Velar

Built on an all-aluminum unibody platform, the Velar sits on a 2,874-millimetre wheelbase (about the same as the Discovery) and will have an overall length of about 4,800 millimetres. While Europe gets six engine options, US will only be getting two: a 2.0-litre turbodiesel with 180 horsepower and 317 lb.-ft. of torque, and Jaguar Land Rover’s 3.0-litre supercharged V6 boasting 380 horsepower.

Land Rover says the V6 is enough to scoot the Velar from rest to 96 km/h (60 mph) in just 5.3 seconds. Both engines are mated to a ZF-manufactured eight-speed automatic transmission. The base model starts from $50,000.
