Land Rover Range Rover Evoque

  The Range Rover Evoque is an all new coupe SUV that will be revealed at the Paris Motor Show at the end of 2010. It will be the smallest, lightest, and most fuel efficient Range Rover produced since Range Rover's 1970 beginning. It will be available in 4WD and 2WD.

Everyone knows that most SUVs can tackle about any road and some light off-road duty. However, when you look at the Range Rover Evoque and its elegant lines, you may think that Land Rover had something else other than off-road trekking.

If you were questioning the Evoque ’s off-road capacities, the off-road specialist Milner came up with some pretty interesting concept — the LRM-1 — that will likely change your opinion on it. To facilitate the transformation into this stunning concept car, the Milner modded just about everything beneath the Evoque’s skin to get it ready for a real off-road thrashing.

A base Evoque delivers a total of 240 horsepower, which is not quite enough for the Milner folks, so they replaced the standard in-line four-pot engine with a 5.0-liter, supercharged V-8 engine that produces more than 550 horsepower and 501 pound-feet of torque. The engine is mated to a six-speed sequential gearbox driving a Milner transfer box and Milner differentials with Quaife centers.

Russian tuner Larte Design may not be a household name on the tuning scene, but that hasn’t hampered the company from dishing out a new program in attempt to gain more recognition front the public and the industry.

It’s latest work is based on the Range Rover Evoque and despite not being a jaw-dropper at first glance, the kit does still include a variety of aesthetic and performance modifications

A new wide body kit was install, featuring a new honeycomb grille and large air intakes in the front apron. The kit also has a redesigned rear apron, a centrally-mounted triple exhaust system, and a set of gloss-black, 21-inch lightweight alloy wheels. Additionally, the Evoque’s suspension was tuned to drop the SUV by 30 mm (1.18 inches).

Meanwhile, power comes in the form of a 2.2-liter, four-cylinder engine that produces 190 horsepower and 310 pound-feet of torque. Thanks to Larte Design, the Evoque saw its output increase to 220 horsepower and 354 pound-feet of torque.

The modifications are simple, but ultimately, effective to give the SUV a serious upgrade in style, attitude, and flair.

When debating Land Rover models, the Range Rover Evoque is our second favorite after the Range Rover Sport , of course. Apparently we are not the only ones with this particular interest in the British SUVs. Kahn Design also developed quite a passion for the Land Rover models, with most of its designs being based on various Range Rovers.

As we close out another Thursday, Kahn provides us with yet another wonderful Range Rover update, but this time, the design firm opted to customize the Evoque . And this Evoque is all about the color black. Everyone knows that black is the color of elegance, so the new Black Label kit transforms the Evoque into one classy rig.

Khan is typically all about the look and feel and doesn’t spend much time tinkering under the hood, and the Black Label is no exception, leaving the 240-horsepower, in-line four-cylinder engine unchaged.

The Range Rover Evoque has quickly become the hottest-selling model in Land Rover ’s lineup and isn’t showing any signs of slowing down for 2014, thanks to a new release from the automaker. While all of the specifics of the 2014 Evoque are still unknown, Land Rover UK has outlined some of the technological advancements the model will carry into 2014 — we assume these will be a part of the 2014 U.S.-spec Evoque too.

The U.S. market receives the same 2.0-liter engine as last year’s model, which puts out a respectable 240 horsepower. These engines all link up to an all-new nine-speed ZF-sourced transmission, which has unperceivable shifts and wide spread of gear ratios to make for smooth acceleration and excellent fuel economy.

Also new for 2014 is the Active Driveline, which according to Land Rover is an "on-demand" four-wheel drive system that enhances agility and improves fuel economy, thanks to it deactivating the rear wheels at speeds over 22 mph. However, should the Evoque need that extra grip over 22 mph, the system takes less than 300 milliseconds to activate the rear wheels. Additionally, an E-Diff on the rear delivers Torque Biasing between the rear wheels for optimal traction and control.

Safety features also take center stage in 2014, as the Evoque will feature Park Exit to help you pull out of parallel parking spots; Closing Vehicle Sensing and Reverse Traffic Detection to warn the driver of traffic behind the vehicle; Lane Departure Warning; Traffic Sign Recognition; and Wade Sensing. Also included will be Land Rover InControl Remote to contact emergency services in the event of an accident or Land Rover Assist in the event of technical issues, and Land Rover InControl Secure to track the vehicle in the event of a theft.

And finally, there are a few aesthetic changes that include minor detail changes on the exterior, new colors for the interior, four new alloy wheels and revised :and Rover badges.

More details will come as we get closer to the model’s release in Europe in the third quarter of 2013.

Updated 9/12/2013: Land Rover has released all of the pricing details on the 2014 Range Rover Evoque. It starts at $41,995. See the full pricing details after the jump.

Range Rover Evoque Convertible Concept

Following Nissan’s footsteps, Land Rover unveiled the Evoque Convertible Concept at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show . Back then, the company announced the concept previewed a future model, but nothing else ever came of it. Now, new rumors suggest that the Evoque Convertible will go into production 2014.

A Land Rover source confirmed in an interview with WhatCar that the Evoque Convertible has been given the green light for next year. The production version will be based on the three-door Evoque Coupe model and will come with a fabric roof, not a folding metal one as previously rumored.

Under the hood, the convertible version will likely feature the same engine lineup as the current models, so customers will be able to choose between both petrol and diesel engines.

Land Rover’s decision to offer a convertible version for the Evoque has been inspired by the huge success the model enjoyed during its first two years of production — more than 220,000 units were produced during this period.
