Land Rover is celebrating its Range Rover’s 40th anniversary with the unveiling of the brand new Range Rover Evoque, an all-new coupe SUV that will join the Range Rover and Range Rover Sport line-up in the summer of 2011.
The new Evoque will be the smallest, lightest, and most fuel efficient Range Rover ever produced. Customers have a choice of both a 4WD and a 2WD version, with a sub 130g/km CO2 demonstrating the Range Rover brand’s commitment to environmental sustainability.
The Range Rover Evoque will be powered by a new 2.0-liter Si4 turbocharged engine that combines direct fuel injection and twin variable valve timing. Customers will have to choose from three trim levels: Pure, Prestige, and Dynamic. Depending on the model, Evoque will come standard with: unique 19-inch wheels and sparkling metallic details, premium leather, twin-needle stitching and real wood and metal finishes, unique bumpers, sills, grille and tailpipes for a more assertive, confident stance, perforated leather seats and unique sports detailing. The new Evoque will go on sale in the fall of 2011.
The good thing is though, the looks exactly the same as the LRX concept and in 2-door format it looks absolutely hot! There will also be a 5-door version. But Range Rover is apparently trying to make it a fashion item, since they’ve already partnered with VOGUE magazine to it, and even signed Victoria Beckham as their creative design executive!
Starting at ONLY $44,800 more than likely they will be all over NYC by the end of this year. Land Rover has not completely sold me yet. I wasn't a fan of the Range Rover sport. I thought it was too small for my taste. I like my "items" BIG ;-P I still want the supercharged HSE. I'll have to wait until I see it up close and personal.
