Land Rover is planning to introduce a more powerful version of the Range Rover Evoque, which might be named the RS.
With the new generations of the Range Rover and Range Rover Sport unveiled earlier this year, the British based automaker Land Rover is planning to take a step forward with its smallest model, the Range Rover Evoque. The vehicle in question is said to receive a more powerful version. The announcement hasn’t been made official just yet but according to recent reports, the model might be named the RS.
According to the guys at Autocar, the new Range Rover Evoque RS will make its way onto the market by the end of this year and it will be followed shortly by the Range Rover Sport RS. The Evoque RS is said to take its power from a 2.0 liter turbocharged gasoline engine, which should produce approximately 300 HP (224 kW), while its larger brother, the Range Rover Sport RS, will get a 5.0 liter supercharged V8 engine, producing 543 HP (405 kW) and 680 Nm of torque (501 lb-ft). The 0 to 60 mph sprint in this version will take 4.8 seconds.
