    RRS SVR will be faced with stiffer BMW Competition!

    BMW officially announcing new 2020 X5 M Competition model soon and shipping this Fall with about 625 hp. Again we have heard nothing yet about the 2020 SVR features let alone if there will even be one. Very disappointing.

    I’m sorry but appending ‘Competition’ to an X5 M is just stupid. For essentially a software tune.

    With the trackhawk at >700 HP, the 625 isn't all that special sounding. JLR does need a high power engine though, not only is the ford built motor at end of contract, but its also old technology at this point.

    This also make the rumor of JLR looking to BMW for next gen motors less likely as i doubt they will want to provide the same or better power plant to a competitors model. Not to mention the new X7.

    Interesting that despite less horsepower than the Trackhawk, the X5M Competition model should match the Trackhawks 0-60 sprint in 3.5 seconds - both way faster than the current SVR.

    You are aware that the current Range Rover Sport platform is old and on its way out while the BMW is brand new, right?

    I'm sure LR will have an answer to all of these brand new performance SUVs when the all new Range Rover Sport is out in 2021.

    Very aware that Land Rover is behind but I am in the market for new vehicle now not in 2021.

    Don’t get me wrong, I have loved my 2015 SVR but it is out of warranty and so it time to buy a replacement. I’d like to stay with Land Rover if I can and not wanting to leave the brand if it can be helped.

    So buy a 2019.5 SVR and talk to Velocity Automotive Performance in BC and do the crank pulley and tune and you'll have 650HP.
