Range Rover Evoque (NEW)
STATUS: New for 2020 - The entry-level Range Rover is the epitome of off-roader coolness and, fortunately, the second-generation model has retained that swagger. The sloping roofline returns, but the grille is more expressive and the fenders are flared out, especially at the front. With the Evoque's minimal front and rear overhangs and ample ground clearance, chances are you won't get hung-up over uneven terrain or become stuck in sand or mud. The base Evoque engine is a turbocharged four-cylinder engine rated at 246 horsepower, up nine over the 2019 model. The R-Dynamic trim's turbo 2.0 adds 50 more horsepower for a total of 296, assisted by a 48-volt electric starter/generator. A nine-speed automatic transmission is standard. The standard all-wheel-drive system has an electronically controlled center differential that varies the torque between the front and rear wheels, depending on where the grip is greatest. There's no word yet if or when the Evoque convertible will return.
