To enhance the variety on offer from the recently refreshed Range Rover line-up, Land Rover has added a new version of the SDV6 diesel engine.
The 3.0-litre unit is a new addition to the European market and offers a 16bhp increase in power over the current TDV6 3.0-litre diesel, with it the new engine offering 272bhp and 625Nm of torque.
This engine joins the newly-introduced plug-in hybrid electric option that is fitted to the P400e version, the 4.4-litre SDV8 diesel and the 5.0-litre supercharged V8 petrol.
The models fitted with this engine come with claimed fuel efficiency of 36.7mpg and CO2 emissions of 202g/km, and is paired to an eight-speed automatic transmission.
Land Rover has also improved the safety systems available to the Range Rover by adding adaptive cruise control with steering assist.
The system helps to keep the vehicle centred in the lane by automatically applying small steering corrections when the driver’s hands are on the wheel, and the vehicle uses sensors to detect the road markings and the vehicle in front to judge where it should be. When the driver switches lanes or brakes, the cruise control system shuts off.
Prices for the Range Rover start from £81,900 and for more information on the premium SUV, contact the Doncaster JCT600 Land Rover Centre on 01302 323344.
