EN­GINE UP­GRADE FOR RANGE ROVER

4 x 4 Australia - - Thescore -

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.
