2018 Range Rover SVAutobiography
Range Rover’s largest, most expensive offering will be taking center stage at the L.A. Auto Show this year. Available exclusively as a long wheelbase model, the luxurious Range Rover SVAutobiography comes with more than 47 inches (1.2 meters) of rear legroom, and comfortable 40-degree-reclining airline-style seats with a lightly updated design, and a few updated exterior elements to boot.
In the cabin, a pair of 10-inch touchscreen displays are included as part of the rear-seat entertainment system, heated calf and foot rests have been added, as has a luxurious hot stone massage function. All in all, the SVAutobiography will set you back £167,850 to £177,030 in the U.K., roughly $224,000 to $236,000 in the U.S.
2018 Range Rover Sport P400e
Arguably the most significant update throughout the Land Rover range is the addition of the hybrid-powered Range Rover Sort P400e. Equipped with a 13.1 kWh lithium-ion battery pack, the Range Rover can travel up to 31 miles (51 kilometers) on pure electric power. A full recharge takes just two hours and 45 minutes via the standard 10 amp charging cable.
Paired with a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder gas engine, the P400e produces 404 horsepower (297 kilowatts) and 472 pound-feet (640 Newton-meters) of torque overall. That allows for a 0-60 mile-per-hour (96 kilometers per hour) sprint of just 6.7 seconds, and a respectable top speed of 137 mph (220 kmh), all while returning just 2.8 liter / 100 kmh (84 mpg U.S. or 101 mph U.K.).
2018 Range Rover Sport SVR
Not to be overshadowed by the battery-powered P400e, the updated Range Rover Sport SVR will be making its debut at the L.A. Auto Show. Wielding a 5.0-liter V8 good for 575 horsepower (428 kilowatts) and 515 pound-feet (700 Newton-meters) of torque, the updated SUV is now 25 hp (18 kW) and 15 lb-ft (20 Nm) more powerful than the outgoing model. All that supercharged speed allows the SVR to sprint to 60 miles per hour (96 kilometers per hour) in just 4.5 seconds, and continue on to a top speed of 176 mph (283 kmh).
2018 Range Rover Sport
A slimmer grille and reworked headlights are amongst the biggest changes seen on the updated 2018 Range Rover Sport. Designers, with a bit of help from engineers, resculpted the front fascia to improve airflow overall and help better cool the engine.
Handsome 21- and 22-inch alloy wheel option have also been added, and are accented by a new black exterior pack. New ebony vintage tan seats and ebony eclipse themes in the cabin continue the luxurious look, and there’s now more than 10 available ambient lighting colors to choose from. Land Rover is already taking orders for the 2018 Range Rover Sport in Europe, with deliveries expected to begin towards the end of the year.
Land Rover Discovery SVX Concept
Though it made its world debut earlier in the year in Frankfurt, the high-powered, highly capable Land Rover Discovery SVX Concept will make its North American debut at the L.A. Auto Show. Equipped with a 5.0-liter V8 good for 518 horsepower (386 kilowatts) and 461 pound-feet (625 Newton-meters) of torque, the SVX concept is not only one of the most capable vehicles the company has built, but also one of the most powerful.
2018 Jaguar E-Pace
Range Rover’s lineup of products may be impressive, but Jaguar is also bringing its own capable crossover to the auto show. The newest, smallest offering, the E-Pace, will make its North American debut in L.A. With an entry-level 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-four engine, and a range-topping 296-horsepower (220-kilowatt) option, the new SUV is light on its feet no matter the trim, as we found out in our first drive.
Jaguar I-Pace eTrophy Concept
The Jaguar I-Pace is going racing, and in preparation, the British automaker has gussied up its small SUV in an appropriate electric blue livery. Set to compete in the one-make support series for Formula E, it’s the world’s first production-based BEV race car to compete in support of the new race series, and will hit the track late in 2018. The production version, meanwhile, will deliver 395 horsepower (294 kilowatts) and 516 pound-feet (699 Newton-meters) when it goes on sale.
2018 Jaguar XF Sportbrake
If SUVs aren’t your thing, Jaguar will introduce another equally capable, but arguably better-looking vehicle at the L.A. Auto Show. The new XF Sportbrake, which made its initial debut back in June, features a panoramic roof that stretches out to 63 inches (1.6 meters) long, and a new 2.0-liter Ingenium four-cylinder engine good for 250 horsepower (186 kilowatts). A range of diesel engines will also be offered, with the range-topping 3.0-liter diesel V6 delivering 300 hp (223 kW). And yes, it will be available in the U.S.
2018 Jaguar XJR575
The new Jaguar XJR575 is the meanest, most powerful XJ the company has ever built. Under the hood is a 5.0-liter V8 good for 575 horsepower (428 kilowatt) and 516 pound-feet (700 Newton-meters) of torque, allowing for a 0-62 mph (100 kilometers per hour) sprint of just 4.4 seconds, and a top speed of 186 mph (300 kmh). The XJR575 can be had for a cool $122,400 in the U.S.
