The story of Range Rover begins way back in 1969, with the prototypes destined for the 1970 release of what would become the original Land Rover Range Rover.

And if advance evidence of its feature-laden build is any indication, the offering ought to veritably upend the SUV segment. Learn about the Range Rover Velar trim levels.
