While Chicago-based brother and sister R&B artists Solo and Jaime Woods provided a live soundtrack, and with luxury fashion Brand HERO/BLACK founder Angela Brantley and Rhea Fernandez looked on, the 2020 Range Rover Evoque made its debut at the Chicago Auto Show. While the looks haven’t changed, there is plenty to talk about with this new Evoque.
First, Land Rover got rid of the Ford-sourced engine for the Evoque, opting instead for the Jaguar Land Rover engines. You’ve got plenty of options to choose from including three gas and a diesel engine, as well as some hybridization through Land Rover’s electrification initiative. The engines are all four-cylinder and you can get up to 300 horsepower. The drivetrain uses an active driveline and all-wheel drive with terrain response and a nine-speed transmission.
For electrification, you can go with a 48-volt mild hybrid, with a plug-in hybrid coming soon.
Another area of conversation is the tech that’s been added. The two-tiered dashboard features a much larger display with infotainment features. The instrument cluster is digital, and the Evoque comes with ground view technology. The interior also uses fabrics from recycled plastic and fine leather, and the trunk space has been enhanced to give you more room for hauling your gear.
The Evoque comes with five trim levels, and will be priced at USD$42,650. As a bonus, purchasers will also receive exclusive MW07 Wireless Earphones from Master & Dynamic. The headphones match the launch colours and feature the car’s grille pattern.
