Last week we got an early look at the new 2018 Range Rover Velar. As promised, the all-new SUV has since been fully, officially unveiled as of today.

Set to go on sale this summer for $50,895 USD to $90,295 USD, the Velar accounts for the lowest vehicle in the Range Rover arsenal, as it is effectively a crossover.

The new ride comes with air suspension, equipped with Land Rover’s terrain response system, which automatically sets up the suspension and driveline for various environments, selected by icons on the dashboard. Interested buyers in the U.S. will then choose from three engine options: Ingenium two-liter diesel producing 180 horsepower and 317 lb-ft of torque, a two-liter turbo gas unit producing 247 horsepower, and a 380-horsepower three-liter V6 supercharged gas engine. The lone transmission is the ZF eight-speed automatic, and permanent four-wheel-drive is also optioned.

“We wanted to elevate Range Rover’s design DNA to a new level,” says Massimo Frascella, Land Rover’s exterior creative director. “We were looking for a new level of simplicity, with the flush door handles and slim LED lights. This will do so much for Range Rover.”

Remember, the vehicle goes on sale this summer.
