Great news out of the Land Rover brand’s Mahwah, NJ headquarters: the automaker just completed its most successful July ever, increasing year-over-year (YOY) sales by 5% over July 2017. With more than 6,200 vehicles sold in July alone, including more than a few at our local Land Rover dealership, the brand’s appeal is trending straight up.
The Range Rover Sport, a luxury SUV known for non-stop thrills, led the July charge. This class-leading vehicle, known for its generous helpings of high-end comfort, exceptional handling, and bona fide off-road ability, sold upwards of 1,630 units in July 2018 – a 13% YOY increase over last July. Adding to this SUV’s huge appeal are its three engine choices, one of which is a fuel-frugal diesel power plant. And the standard engine, a 3.0L supercharged V6 capable of 340hp and 332 lb-ft of torque, is more impressive than many competitors’ top-line engine.
Another model that posted impressive July ’18 sales numbers is the all-new 2018 Range Rover Velar. This isn’t surprising, given the trophies occupying this luxury SUV’s mantelpiece: one of which is a World Car Design of the Year Award. Nothing on the planet looks like a 2018 Range Rover Velar, and when you combine this fact with its very Land Rover-like performance and comfort, it’s clear that you need to set your in-car navigation to “Land Rover dealership near me” and join us for a test drive.
The four remaining Land Rover models – the classic Range Rover, full-size Land Rover Discovery, compact 2018 Range Rover Evoque, and capable Discovery Sport – also made important contributions to the Land Rover brand’s record-setting July.
