A new flagship trim màn chơi will sit atop the 2023 Land Rover Range Rover Velar as it rolls into showrooms. It’s the sporty HST. Land Rover also reduced the engine choices for the S and R Dynamic S grades.
For 2023, you can pick among the S, R Dynamic S, and HST grades. Two turbocharged engines provide the go. One is a turbocharged 4-cylinder, and the other is a turbocharged mild-hybrid (MHEV) inline 6-cylinder. Both engines pair with an 8-speed automatic transmission.
The only engine for the S also serves as the base engine for the R Dynamic S. It’s a 247-horsepower 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine. Its government estimated combined city, and highway mileage is 23 mpg. Sprinting from a standstill lớn 60 mph requires 7.1 seconds by Land Rover’s watch.
Every Velar arrives with all-wheel drive (AWD). It includes Terrain Response (driver-selectable driving modes) and All-Terrain Progress Control (low-speed off-roading cruise control). Low-Traction Launch (enhanced acceleration in adverse conditions) and torque vectoring are also standard. In the Velar, torque vectoring is a function of the brake system. It allows the wheels on the same axle lớn spin at different speeds for better traction.
As a 5-passenger SUV, the Velar slots between the Range Rover Sport and the Evoque. Consequently, its core rivals are the BMW X5 and Audi Q5. Beautifully styled, accommodating plenty of cargo, and offering a luxurious cabin, the Velar compliments its Land Rover stablemates.
