The Velar is available in three engine levels including a turbocharged 4-cylinder with 247 horsepower, a 4-cylinder diesel with 180 horsepower and a supercharged V6 with a whopping 380 horsepower. The supercharged V6 model packs fierce acceleration for a midsize SUV!

Even the base model speeds up to 60 mph in 6.4 seconds. The most impressive is the V6 with a 5.3 second 0 to 60 time and a maximum speed of 155 mph.

The SUV encompasses a wide range of features helpful for offroad traction and performance such as Hill Descent, Low Traction control, Gradient Release, Traction Launch and All Terrian Progress control.

If you enjoy offroading, the adjustable suspension is included with the V6 model and does a superior job stabilizing the ride.

To accompany the standard Range Rover features, the Velar includes Land Rover’s new infotainment system that boasts two 10 inch screens. The world will be at your fingertips with a wide array of apps and technology packaged for both elegance and convenience.

Choosing a Used Range Rover Sport in Dallas

The Range Rover Sport is the perfect combination of luxury and power coupled with the durability of a 4-wheel drive SUV. Land Rover introduced the Sport model in 2005 and since then it has undergone significant changes including a refresh in 2009 and second-gen model in 2013.

When buying a used Range Rover, particularly the Sport model, there are an array of different trim options including the SE, HSE and Supercharged. Choosing from our selection of used Range Rover Sport vehicles in Dallas doesn’t have to be a challenge as we help you decide on a vehicle that fits your preferences and budget.

Here are a few tips to consider when looking for a used Range Rover Sport:

Model Options

If you are looking for performance, the Supercharged Range Rover Sport features a V6 engine with over 300 horsepower. Some of the older models have a V8 engine that accelerates from 0 to 60 in 5.9 seconds, such as the 2009 Range Rover Sport.

The Range Rover Sport was released in 2011 with a diesel model that incorporates 242 horsepower with a 3.0-liter engine. The 0 to 60 time is a bit longer at 8.8 seconds but the diesel models are often more budget friendly.

Inspecting the Condition

Especially if you are buying an older model, make sure to thoroughly inspect the vehicle before purchasing. We have extremely high-quality standards for the vehicles we accept but still welcome inspections for buyers to be 100% comfortable with their purchase.

Buying a certified pre-owned vehicle is often the best way to go when it comes to used vehicles as it gives you the added peace of mind that the vehicle has no issues. Also, be sure to check the Carfax history report to see how many owners and if it has been in an accident.

Defining a Budget

Historic Land Rover Found After Hiding for Decades

One of the first Land Rover vehicles produced from the assembly line has been hiding for decades until the past year where it was uncovered.

The rare Land Rover is one of three preproduction models first introduced to the public in 1948 at the Amsterdam Motor Show. After touring for brand publicity in the late 1940s, the vehicle managed to stay out of the public eye for quite some time.

What happened to the historic Land Rover model? After being sold to a private individual, it was kept on a Welsh farm. It sat for many years before being purchased for a restoration project, which didn’t end up going very far, so it ended up resting in a garden for decades.

The Land Rover was located in 2016, not far from the manufacturing plant where it was built in Solihull.  

The vehicle was mostly intact and Land Rover’s Classic Works team put time into preserving the historical gem instead of completely restoring it. They wanted to leave it closest to its natural state instead of polishing the artifact to look brand new.

As an important part of Land Rover’s history and automotive history in general, the preproduction Rover is irreplaceable. The Classic Works team is putting the model through a careful restoration process just in time for Land Rover’s 70th-anniversary celebration.

If you think about what was happening 70 years ago, it is fascinating to imagine when the world first glimpsed at the unique body style that is now immediately distinguished as a Land Rover. The launch at the 1948 Amsterdam Motor Show was a memorable time for the brand, only to be recognized again after the vehicle was located in a garden.
