Drivers in the Ventura, Camarillo, and Oxnard areas who want ultimate versatility from their car will find a lot to like in the Range Rover Velar. Not only is the lightweight aluminum body made from 50 percent closed-loop recycled material, it’s also an adventure-ready SUV with everyday style.
Check out this 2018 Range Rover Velar car review from Land Rover Ventura to learn more.
Range Rover Velar Engine Specs
The 2018 Range Rover Velar gives drivers the choice between three optimized engines, each carefully designed to provide a unique experience.
The D130 is a 2.0L turbocharged diesel engine generating 130 horsepower and 317 lb-ft of torque. This engine adapts to the flow of exhaust gasses to create uniform responsiveness. This efficient engine gets the highest EPA-estimated fuel economy of all the options, at 26 MPG city and 30 MPG highway.
If you prefer a gas engine, consider the P250. This 2.0L turbocharged engine generates 247 horsepower and 269 lb-ft of torque. For a bit more power, the P380 3.0L V6 supercharged engine will get you an output of 380 horsepower and 330 lb-ft of torque. This engine gives you the fastest acceleration, going 0-60 MPG in just 5.3 seconds.
2018 Range Rover Velar Engine Efficiency
All engines are paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission with closely spaced ratios and almost imperceptible gear changes that create an optimized driving experience.
These three engines also ensure nothing goes to waste by employing regenerative charging. This technology repurposes kinetic braking energy to charge the battery.
They also preserve fuel with Stop/Start technology that powers off the engine during prolonged stops and fires it back up again when you hit the accelerator.
Both of these technologies make the Range Rover Velar as ideal for city driving as it is for adventuring.
When you have the urge to hit the road, know that your 2018 Range Rover Velar is ready to go. With a maximum towing capacity of 5,291 pounds, you can easily haul your trusty boat to the ocean. You can take advantage of the 70 cubic feet of total cargo space to pack up all your camping gear when you hit Hobson Beach Park.
With all the seats upright, you can bring along five of your closest friends, while still having 34 cubic feet of cargo space to pack up. Fold down the third-row seats to create a 43-cubic-foot cargo area or take advantage of the 40:20:40 second row seat configuration to free up 52 cubic feet for all the essentials.
When you reach your destination, the available Automatic Access Height feature makes entering and exiting the Range Rover easy and elegant by dropping the suspension height by up to 1.6 inches.
