At the upcoming 2017 Los Angeles Auto Show, Jaguar Land Rover plans to introduce a few interesting models. These include the newly refreshed Range Rover in SVAutobiography and SVAutobiography Dynamic trims - the range-topping models in the lineup. While the company promises to take refinement and luxury to new levels, there haven’t been many details revealed just yet.
Apart from the vehicles mentioned earlier, the company will also be showcasing a number of products that that will surely be of interest to fans like the inaugural presentation in the country of the 2019 Range Rover and Range Rover Sport PHEV variants.
Both of these would be equipped with a 2.0 liter four-cylinder gas-fueled engine that works together with an electric motor. With these two equipped on the car, it is able to achieve a total rating of 398 horsepower (297 kilowatts), with an estimated 31 miles (50 kilometers) that come purely from electric power. If you are wondering where the plus is, it is camouflaged just behind the front grille.
That’s not all from Jaguar Land Rover as alongside the models mentioned earlier would be the Discovery SVX concept that will be on display. It first made its debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show a couple of months ago, as the perfect off-roader for adventurous people, with increased ground clearance and longer-travel dampers, unlike the standard model. Under its hood is a 518 horsepower (386 kW) 5.0 liter V8 with 461 pound-feet (625 Newton-metres) of torque.
There’s more. We will also see the debut of the new Range Rover SVR, which is supposedly the “fastest Range Rover to date”. For the first time ever, the petrol-electric plug-in hybrid Range Rover and Range Rover Sport will appear in the US for the first time ever. Both of these were based on the upgraded 2018 model year Range Rovers.
Of course, if JLR has a number of vehicles to bring to LA, so does its other half, Jaguar. Having said that, we can expect to see the E-Pace crossover make its North American debut for the first time. Alongside it will be the XJR575 flagship performance sedan and the XF Sportbrake wagon.
We are excited to see the ultimate in luxury offered by the refreshed Range Rover SVAutobiography. Stay tuned as we will soon provide a full and detailed coverage of these cars during the auto show. If you are going to be in LA during the auto show, be sure to check out JLR’s lineup.
