Zesty new 3.0 diesel for L405

LRO (UK) - - News -

The 3.0 TDV6 en­gine that pow­ers the L405 Range Rover has been re­placed by the more pow­er­ful SDV6. The new mo­tor puts out 271bhp (16bhp more than the TDV6) and 461lb ft (up from 443lb ft). The ex­tra urge does come at the cost of a few mpg – the of­fi­cial com­bined fig­ure drops from 40.9 to 36.7.

The 4.4 SDV8 gets im­proved eight-speed au­to­matic gear­box man­age­ment, de­liv­er­ing bet­ter fuel econ­omy and lower CO2 emis­sions. All mod­els are now of­fered with adap­tive cruise con­trol with Steer­ing As­sist. This keeps the car cen­tred in its lane, us­ing lane mark­ings and the ve­hi­cle in front.

Faster but thirstier
