Range Rover has announced yet another engine choice for its expansive Velar range.

The brand's UK arm has revealed that a 200kW/625Nm 3.0-litre V6 turbocharged diesel will join the current three diesel and two petrol engine options. Australia currently offers a third larger capacity petrol engine not available in the SUV's home market.

It is not yet known if the engine will join the English marque's local line-up, but if the new mid-size luxury SUV does make an entry into local showrooms it would span up to seven models which would bring the total number of Velar variants to just under 50.

Along with the extra engine option Range Rover is adding a raft of technology updates which includes adaptive cruise control with steering assist that uses lane centring technology to keep the vehicle within its lane and an upgraded high speed autonomous emergency braking system.

The 2019 model year updates also includes a larger fuel tank for petrol models growing from 63-litres to 82-litres.

Sister-brand Jaguar has also prepped the F-Pace SUV for the 2019 model year, with the aforementioned specification updates available on the Velar, excluding the additional engine.

However, the leaping cat brand has also made a 10-inch touchscreen standard and added new 14-way adjustable slim sports seats to the options list.

The range-topping performance-focused Jaguar F-Pacer SVR that is powered by a 404kW/680Nm supercharged 5.0-litre V8 joins the local line-up, which will be priced from $140,020 before on-road costs.
