2020 Range Rover SUV Gets “Green” Treatment For This Year

Basically, Land Rover’s 2020 Range Rover SUV received just a few cosmetic updates for this year. From now on, the automaker’s flagship can be ordered with new 22-inch glossy black wheels, and with a new shade of grey and blue, and that’s pretty much everything. Oh yes! We’ve almost forgotten to mention the SUV gets updated driver-assist features which now include 360-degree cameras and blind-spot monitoring. The real changes, however, happened under the hood. The new model sports a new mild hybrid feature that comes in a pair with the company’s efficient turbocharged inline-6.

Mild-Hybrid Aid, Power, And Pricing

The 3.0-liter turbocharged inline-6 mated to a 48-volt mild-hybrid system pumps out a respectable amount of power. It delivers 355 horsepower and 365 pound-feet of torque in base P360 guise. However, the same option kicks out 396 horsepower and 406 lb-ft of grunt in sportier P400 guise, which is available with HSW trim level only. The more powerful option enables quite respectable acceleration for the full-size SUV. According to the automaker, the 2020 Range Rover in P400 guise will speed up from 0 to 60 mph in 5.9 seconds, while top-speed stops at 130 mph. The extra power that the P400 offers will cost you some additional money though. While the base P360 starts at $92,195, the P400 will add around $5,250, so in case you want a bit quicker Range Rover, you will have to have at least $97,445. The mild-hybrid system, which serves in several different purposes, will allegedly increase fuel efficiency by 20 percent when compared to the predecessor. Although EPA estimates are not yet out.

Plug-In Hybrid, Power, And Pricing

The company offers an even greener model from the hybrid Range Rover. That would be a 2020 Range Rover PHEV which combines a turbo 2.0-liter inline-four with a 114-hp electric motor. The motor is mounted to the transmission and coupled with a 13.1-kWh battery. Together, the system develops 398 hp and 472 lb-ft of torque, and it’s even more important to mention that the drivetrain provides a respectable electric-only drive range of 31 miles. The plug-in hybrid comes in HSE P400e and Autobiography P400e trim levels only. The first one starts at $97,245, while the toper costs $131,595.
