Land Rover took a gamble with the Range Rover Evoque in that the vehicle eschewed serious off-roading capability in favor of a mix of style and high-end. It’s a gamble that’s settled as the Evoque has attracted lots of consumers that previously wouldn’t have actually considered one of the British marque’s vehicles. It’s tough to believe the Evoque has been on sale considering that 2012, as the vehicle is still looking fresh. However, Land Rover is preparing a second-generation Evoque and we’ve simply identified an early test mule for the vehicle.

There are some new intakes in the front bumper while at the rear we see some makeshift panels. The design of the controls in the cabin are the same from the current model, though the majority of the real controls are test units. The platform for the brand-new Evoque is Land Rover’s LR-MS platform found in the existing Evoque in addition to the Discovery Sport. Anticipate the platform to be updated for the brand-new Evoque with lighter materials and alternative powertrain capability.
It doesn’t appear that there will be any significant change when it concerns the size of the new Evoque, which makes sense as Land Rover has actually simply included the Range Rover Velar to fill the broad space in between the Evoque and Range Rover Sport. We’ve also heard that an all-new model could be included listed below the Evoque.

JLR (Jaguar Land Rover) will continue utilizing its Ingenium engine family of fuel and turbodiesel engines. These engines utilize an all-aluminum construction and are based on a.500-cc displacement interval, enabling easy scalability. Presently, the U.S.-spec Evoque is powered by the 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder Ingeninum, which makes 240 horsepower and 250 pound-feet of torque. Improvement to effectiveness without any ill impacts to power are anticipated in the next generation.
A turbodiesel version of the 2.0-liter four-cylinder is likewise readily available, though only beyond the United States Thanks to Volkswagen’s Dieselgate scandal, the EPA has actually been cracking down on diesels and their emissions. This makes it harder for automakers to obtain correct clearances to offer diesels.
