Long for Luxury? Try the 2020 Land Rover Range Rover Velar SVAutobiography Dynamic Edition

Land Rover has a knack for coming up with model names that are a mouthful, but the brand has outdone itself with the nine-word, 65-character 2020 Land Rover Range Rover Velar SVAutobiography Dynamic Edition. Yikes. Land Rover executives seem to acknowledge as much, referring to the new high-end SUV as the Velar SVAD at its 2019 New York International Auto Show debut; I think I’ll do the same.

The SVAD represents a new pinnacle in performance and luxury for the Velar. It’s fitted with an exclusive 550-horsepower, supercharged 5.0-liter V-8 engine that works with an eight-speed automatic transmission, and Land Rover claims the SUV can sprint from zero-to-60 mph in just 4.3 seconds. Upscale interior trim includes rich leather upholstery, piano-black finishes and aluminum accents. The SVAD is also the only Velar that’s available in Satin Byron Blue, a special matte paint finish.

Pricing hasn’t been announced, but a six-figure price tag isn’t out of the question; the Range Rover Sport Autobiography is just shy of $100,000. Land Rover also says the Velar SVAD will only be offered for the 2020 model year, which should make it even more exclusive.
