Range Rover Velar Gains D275 V6 Diesel, New Safety Tech

Land Rover is updating the Range Rover Velar with a wide range of enhancements, including a 3.0-liter V6 D275 engine option, more driver assistance features, more tech and particulate filters to further reduce emissions.

The D275 V6 diesel speaks for the horsepower figure (275 PS), while adding 625 Nm (461 lb-ft) of torque. The price for a RR Velar D275 is £49,740 ($67,618), roughly £2,000 more than the D240 model. Overall, the 19MY Velar is priced from £44,735 ($60,814), which lands you the base D180 model.

Furthermore, the flagship D300 diesel starts from £50,990 ($69,317), whereas the two 2.0-liter P250 and P300 petrol models are priced from £45,830 ($62,302) and £48,330 ($65,700), respectively.

“We’ve given Range Rover Velar customers more choice with the addition of a new diesel engine option, even more scope for personalization and the latest safety technology. Creating the perfect Range Rover Velar is now easier than ever,” said JLR marketing exec, Finbar McFall.

Purchasing a 2019MY car also means a broader choice of specs, which include the Kvadrat premium textile seats, available more widely across the range.

Meanwhile, Adaptive Cruise Control with Steering Assist joins the Velar’s suite of driver assistance systems, while the High-Speed Emergency Braking system makes it easier to mitigate forward collisions. Systems such as a Rear Camera, Front and Rear Parking Aids, Driver Condition Monitor, Emergency Braking and Lane Keep Assist are now fitted as standard.

As for options, the Range Rover Velar now features Adaptive Dynamics, available on multiple versions throughout the range. The system works by monitoring wheel movement 500 times per second and body movements 100 times per second, continuously varying damping forces at all four corners. Also optional is the air suspension, available on all models with V6 engines, as well as the four-cylinder 240 PS diesel and 300 PS petrol.

A number of petrol models also gain a larger 82-liter (21.6 gallons) fuel tank (up from 63 liters / 16.6 gallons), specifically, the P250 and P300, both powered by JLR’s 2.0-liter Ingenium engine.
