ENGINE UPGRADE FOR RANGE ROVER

RANGE Rover has added the 3.0-litre twin-turbo SDV6 engine to its Australian line-up. The diesel engine, capable of delivering 202kW and 625Nm, ups the output of the outgoing 3.0-litre TDV6 (190kW and 600Nm) by 12kW and 25Nm.The SDV6 sits alongside the more powerful 4.4-litre SDV8 diesel (250kW/740Nm), which is now available with an enhanced eight-speed automatic gearbox said to cut fuel consumption. Land Rover’s petrol offerings remain the P400e plug-in hybrid electric and the barnstorming 5.0-litre V8 supercharged engine.

“Range Rover is the original luxury SUV and the most capable and refined vehicle of its kind,” Nick Collins, vehicle line director of Jaguar Land Rover said. “The latest updates ensure customers enjoy the peerless comfort they’ve come to expect, with more choice, convenience and safety than ever.”

Land Rover has also revised the Range Rover’s driver assistance technology to include Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with a Stop and Go function and Steering Assist.
