Land Rover is building one hot vehicle, which will be introduced before the end of the year. You’ve probably managed to see what lacks the testing mule. Yes, it features just two doors and significantly sleeker profile than the regular four-rood sibling. Ladies and gentlemen, let me introduce you to the 2019 Range Rover Coupe. The luxury high-riding vehicle is definitely in the works and it’s going to be a new “hot-chocolate”, which will reportedly cost over $200,000.
So what’s so special here?
The prototype is totally camouflaged right now, which prevent us to see all the details. However, it’s pretty clear that the 2019 Range Rover Coupe rides on the same platform as the current Range Rover. Okay, the architecture might be shortened just a little bit, but basically, it’s pretty much the same. The sloping roof is the first thing we’ve noticed, but it’s not the only difference. No, Land Rover is going to make the two-door version completely different front the outside. The nose appears to have V-shaped grille instead of the usual rectangular, while the bumper might be closer to the ground. There is a pair of running-light LED strips just a bit underneath the headlights. Around back, the coupe-like SUV sports a completely different hatch without any doubt. Still, that’s impossible to see right now thanks to a concealment panel over it. Moreover, the prototype shows just a pair of trapezoidal exhaust tips and nothing more at the moment.
Land Rover is still hiding the powertrain of the two-door Range Rover. However, we think we know what’s going to power the amazing coupe. The car producer will likely stick to the supercharged 5.0-liter V8. The engine will offer two outputs, meaning the base model will offer “only” 510 horsepower, while the vanilla flavor should be limited to 550 horsepower. Of course, the mill will be mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission, which will send the power to all four wheels.
Like we said before, the 2019 Land Rover Range Rover Coupe (or whatever it’s going to be named the SUV) should be ready this year. Still, don’t believe in the nonsense such as the arrival at this year’s Geneva Motor Show. No, the vehicle could eventually be ready for the very end of the year. The two-door model will not have as many buyers as the regular four-rood model for sure. Still, the idea is great, especially when we know that the first ever Range Rover had just two doors. For those that don’t know, the vehicle was produced from 1970 to 1981.
