After the Land Rover car maker has unveiled its latest Range Rover Sport, presented it as the plug-in hybrid version for the first time and revealed a SVR model with more power, now was the time for the next luxury SUV to be redesigned. It is the all new 2018 Range Rover Vogue. We could see the upcoming Vogue in the leaked photos and judging by these shots, it is going to receive some design cues from the latest Sport model.
The exterior will get some mild adjustments in order to keep it fresh in already crowded SUV market. Inside the cabin, we will notice similar innovations just like in the Sport model which will include larger touchscreen and upgraded materials. As for the engine, it is very likely that the new Range Rover Vogue will get a plug-in hybrid unit used in Sport. However, it should also offer traditional engines under its hood.
2018 Range Rover Vogue engines and performances
Under the hood, the 2018 Range Rover Vogue should feature the same options as the current model. So, depending on a trim level, there will be several engines in offer. The base will be a 3.0-liter V-6 diesel engine which will be able to make 254 horses and 443 pound-feet of torque. The next will be a 4.4-liter V-8 diesel which will have the output of 334 hp and the torque of 545 pound-feet. There will also be two petrol units. The one is a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder which will be able to make 398 horses and 472 pound-feet of torque. The second will be a 5.0-liter V-8 supercharged engine. This one will be capable of making 518 hp and 461 pound-feet of torque. The maximum speed of this unit will be 155 mph. All the engines will pair with an 8-speed automatic transmission.
On the other hand, according to the latest news, the new Vogue should also use a plug-in hybrid powertrain found in the new Sport. It will most likely be a combination of a 2.0-liter gasoline turbocharged engine and an electric motor. The total output of this unit should be 404 horses and 472 pound-feet of torque.
Design of exterior and interior
The newest 2018 Range Rover Vogue should get similar design cues as the latest Range Rover Sport. So, it is expected to arrive with slightly revised grille which will feature new mesh pattern. There will be also refreshed Matrix LED headlamps with daytime running lights. As well, we can expect a new bumper. It will ride on 20-inch wheel while the larger 21- and 22-inch ones will be available also.
Inside the cabin, the car maker will also imitate the design of the Velar model. There will be larger dual 10.0-inch touchscreens with Touch Pro Duo infotainment system. Generally, the interior of the 2018 Range Rover Vogue will be very comfortable, luxurious and very-well equipped. The seats will be upholstered in leather and it will be offered with heating function.
Release date and price
It is still not officially confirmed when the 2018 Range Rover Vogue will go on sale. As for the price, we assume that it should be slightly higher than the price of the current model.
