Announcing the Range Rover Velar | Land Rover San Antonio
Over forty years ago, Land Rover introduced the very first Range Rover. In this nearly half-century history, the Range Rover became of symbol of luxury and a cornerstone of the auto industry. It’s inspired future models in the Range Rover family over the course of its history. Since its first inception, the Range Rover has added to its growing force with the Range Rover Sport and Range Rover Evoque. The legacy is built to last and become all the greater with the announcement of the all-new Range Rover Velar.
Deriving its name from the original Range Rover prototype, the new Velar offers startling simplicity in design, elegance in its luxury, and thoughtfulness in its purpose. “We call the Velar the avant-garde Range Rover. It brings a new dimension of glamour, modernity, and elegance to the brand. The Range Rover Velar changes everything,” said Gerry McGovern, Land Rover Chief Design Officer.
Learn more about Range Rover history at our blog here.
Furthermore, the Velar’s design is founded on a core principle: reduction. By stripping away muddied complexities, the Velar reveals the elegance found in simplicity. While many might assume the more the better, the Velar operates on a less-is-more policy to provide surprising luxury in simple, beautiful details. The Velar is reminiscent of its Range Rover roots from 1969, and brings heritage and history into the new age of the modern, luxury SUV.
Filling the void between the Range Rover Sport and the Range Rover Evoque, Velar drivers can look forward to the vehicle’s lightweight and aluminum-intensive structure, long wheelbase, intelligently spacious interior cabin, available performance technology including Terrain Response®, and much more.
Browse our Range Rover Sport inventory here.
Due to the Velar’s compelling design and stand out features, we’re looking forward to its appearance. Stop by Land Rover San Antonio to see all our Land Rover and Range Rover models currently available.

History of the Range Rover | Land Rover San Antonio
With a history over forty-five years long, the Range Rover is a cornerstone in both luxury and capability. While some might say high-end style and superior off-roading performance don’t belong in the same vehicle, Range Rover discovered possibility. Their work has stood the test of time.
Way back in 1970, the first Range Rover conceptualization began to take shape in the form of Range Rover Velar. The name “Velar” disguised the first prototypes. With this name, the soon-to-come car remained a secret. This first concept vehicle was a three-door model and was in a class all its own as it blended a rare mix of elegance and capability, a blend the Range Rover still manifests today.
A decade later, in 1981, the four-door Range Rover first hit the road. It met high praise from the growing number of Range Rover drivers.
The Ranger Rover evolved over time, not only keeping up with trends but setting even more on their own. The 2001 third-generation Range Rover is perhaps the model that begins to resonate with Range Rover fans today. This style and build really began to set the way for current models. This build was the first to have a unibody, and the design is truly inspiring.
Range Rover Sport
While you’re probably familiar with the 2017 Range Rover Sport, did you know the first Sport models hit the road over a decade ago? In 2005, Range Rover faithfully proved its dedication to innovation with the Sport. This model optimized driving performance without sacrificing high-end luxury details.
Range Rover Evoque
The height of the Range Rover’s precision and elegance, though, came in 2015 with the introduction of the Range Rover Evoque Convertible. This is the first convertible model for the Range Rover family. The Evoque proves the brand’s leading charge in class, style, and elegance.
Phone Apps Every Driver Needs
Waze isn’t your typical directions or maps app; it beats out Google Maps or Mapquest because of its top-of-the-line crowd-sourcing functions. Get real-time traffic alerts to optimize your commute from real drivers, not algorithms.

- Road Tripper

Prepare Your Land Rover for Winter
When you buy a Land Rover, we know you’ll be doing some off-roading. In the wintertime, that means you could be taking your car into icy territory or snow-packed trails. Luckily, a Land Rover was built with confidence in its capabilities on- or off-road no matter the season and weather. But before you head out on your winter adventures in 2017, here’s some advice and tips on how to prepare your Land Rover for winter from Land Rover San Antonio.
- Stop by the service center
Schedule an appointment with us to have a pre-winter checkup so we can be sure your Land Rover is in tip-top shape for everything you have planned for it. Getting your car serviced is easy when you schedule it online. Fill out the form here: http://www.landroversanantonio.com/schedule-car-maintenance-or-auto-repair-san-antonio-tx
- Tire inflation
It’s important that your tires are properly inflated before you take them on uneasy terrain. Tire pressure will differ depending on the vehicle, road conditions, and tires themselves, so check your handbook or even call our service center to be sure your tires are ready for winter.
- Easy does it
When you’re on snow or ice, traction is the most important factor. Use steady momentum and ease off the accelerator if you feel you’ve lost traction. Luckily, many new Land Rover models have available traction control and terrain response technology so you can come prepared.
- Avoid quick braking
Sudden or harsh braking can be tough on your car in any climate, but it’s even worse on icy or snowy roads. Brake gently or you run the risk of skidding on the road.
- Stock up on essentials
There’s things you should always keep in your car, year ‘round. But during winter, snow chains, de-icer and windshield scraper, torch or lightbulb, and blankets are a must. Make sure your Land Rover is stocked up.
There’s many roadblocks to face during winter, but you don’t have to let them keep you from your adventures when you’re in a Land Rover. Be prepared for the new year by stopping by Land Rover San Antonio and let us help you gear up for colder climates.
