Land Rover Engine Guide

Like everything else Land Rover related, many of our Land Rover SUVs offer you multiple options when it comes to the engine you want in your vehicle. Take the 2018 Land Rover Range Rover Velar for example. This stunning SUV is available with three engine choices.

Picking the right engine for you can seem like a tall task. Here at Land Rover Northfield, we want to help by quickly providing a breakdown of engine types and what their specs mean. Using the Range Rover Velar as our example vehicle, you can choose between the base turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, which puts out 247 horsepower and 269 lb-ft of torque, a supercharged 3.0-liter V6 engine that delivers 380 horsepower and 332 lb-ft of torque, and a turbocharged 2.0-liter diesel-powered four-cylinder worth 180 horsepower and 317 lb-ft of torque. The first two engines require regular gas to operate, while the diesel option runs on diesel gas. 

When it comes to getting around the Northfield and Evanston, IL areas, you may find that one option is best for you. Knowing the differences between certain words can help. With the Range Rover Velar, you can get both a turbocharged and supercharged engine. While both use force induction systems to compress air and generate more power, a turbocharger uses the exhaust system, while a supercharger compresses the atmospheric pressure. The big differences between the two are that a turbocharger is not directly connected to the engine and emits a lower carbon emission; the supercharger is directly connected to the engine.

To learn more about what these engine options can offer you, visit us today at our Northfield Land Rover dealership. We’re happy to provide you with answers to all your questions and take you out on a test drive so you can find out which engine is right for you.
