Range Rover Evoque Service in Houston
In 2011, Land Rover introduced a subcompact luxury crossover SUV in both front wheel drive and four wheel drive based on their 2008 LRX concept car.So let’s take a closer look at the Evoque
This new model, dubbed the Range Rover Evoque, was introduced as both a five door and a three door coupe. The Evoque is of unibody construction and weighs in at about 3700 pounds. There are three engine options worldwide.
Most remarkable is it’s off road technology. Equipped with the latest version of Terrain Response that maximizes traction under changing conditions, the system includes stability control, roll control, traction control, and an optional hill descent control that applies the brakes based on conditions when traveling down an incline. There is also MagneRide Suspension that electronically changes the viscosity of the fluid in the shock absorbers to quickly adjust for varying road conditions to increase firmness and stability.
In 2014 Evoque introduced a new option, the Land Rover Active Driveline on demand Four wheel drive system. Active Driveline works by disconnecting all major all wheel drive components from the gearboxes rather than at the central coupling. It features Torque Vectoring that will direct power to individual wheels.
The standard all wheel drive system was changed from Haldex to GKN.
Evoque’s off road performance is equally impressive with 8.5 inches of ground clearance, much improved approach and departure angles than previous Rovers, and a wading depth of 19.7 inches. All while maintaining a very sporty highway feel.
A very impressive vehicle, as is evidenced by the awards it has captured.
2010 it was awarded “Best Production Car” by Car Design News.
2011 “Car of the Year” by Top Gear and Auto Express.
2012 “Best of the Best/Truck” by Auto Week Magazine
“Overall World Car of the Year” & “Top World Luxury Car of the Year” by Women’s Magazine.
“World Car Design of the Year”, part of the World Car of the Year Awards
“North American Truck of the Year”
These are amazing machines, but to keep them operating at peak performance they require very specialized periodic maintenance.
