Upcoming Enhancement: Increased Power for the Land Rover Range Rover Evoque

Published Categorized as Cars No Comments on Upcoming Enhancement: Increased Power for the Land Rover Range Rover Evoque

The 2024 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque may not be the swiftest option in the lineup, but it’s gearing up for a boost in speed come the 2025 model year.

Currently, the Evoque is equipped solely with a P250 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine generating 246 hp and 269 lb-ft of torque, driving all four wheels through a nine-speed automatic transmission.

Insider sources have revealed that the 2025 Evoque will introduce a more robust P300 engine variant, enhancing its performance capabilities. While specifics regarding the Evoque P300’s acceleration remain undisclosed, insights from other Land Rover models provide some context.

The Land Rover Defender, for instance, offers a P300 variant with the same Ingenium four-cylinder engine, tuned to produce 296 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque. The “P300” designation corresponds to the engine’s 300 metric horsepower, roughly equating to 296 hp in the US metric system.

Confidence is high regarding the introduction of the Evoque P300 in the US market, as it aligns with the previous availability of the P300 variant before the model’s recent facelift for the 2024 model year.

Although the reasons for omitting the P250 and P300 versions post-facelift remain unclear, Land Rover likely prioritized the best-selling P250 model.

The enhanced power of the P300 is expected to make its way to the US, offering customers a more spirited driving experience.

However, there are no indications of plans to introduce the electrified P300e model in the US, which incorporates a three-cylinder gas engine and electric motor to deliver a combined output of 305 hp and a 39-mile electric range (WLTP-rated).

Beyond the power increase, the 2025 Evoque is poised to introduce additional features absent in the P250 model. For instance, insider sources have hinted at the inclusion of ventilated front seats, an option not available in the 2024 model year.

Therefore, for those considering the Range Rover Evoque, waiting for the 2025 model may prove worthwhile, offering both enhanced performance and added features.
