The Range Rover Velar is gaining a new, much more powerful version, giving the streamlined luxury SUV the grunt it always deserved. The 2020 Range Rover Velar SVAutobiography Dynamic Edition takes the top spot as the most powerful Velar so far, with a 5.0-liter supercharged V8 under its hood.
Compared to the P380 supercharged gas V6 that was, until this point, the most potent engine Land Rover offered for the Velar, it’s a 45-percent horsepower boost. The 5.0-liter supercharged V8 delivers 550 horsepower and 502 lb-ft of torque, the automaker promises, good for a 4.3-second 0-60 mph time.
It’s the handiwork of the Land Rover Special Vehicle Operations – SVO – team, and they haven’t stinted on performance. Top speed is electronically limited to 170 mph, and the standard AWD system has been upgraded with a new transfer box to deal with the increase in power. As much as 100-percent of the torque can be directed to the front or the rear wheels, situation demanding. An eight-speed Quickshift transmission and air suspension are standard.
There’s also a revamped Dynamic drive mode, again to take advantage of the bigger engine. That includes changes to the steering, suspension, and transmission settings. For the ears, meanwhile, a new SV Variable Active Exhaust System adds valves to the exhaust system, adjusting the tailpipe sound; it also pays dividends in cutting weight by over 15 pounds and increasing gas flow for better performance.
It’s not just more power that the SVO team has added, mind. The 2020 Velar SVAutobiography Dynamic Edition also gets aesthetic and comfort changes inside and out.
While the streamlined luxury midsize certainly looked the part, and drove comfortably, the allure of the bigger, V8 engine in its larger sibling, the Range Rover Sport, was never far away. This 2020 Velar SVAutobiography Dynamic Edition fixes that nicely.
