The much acclaimed 2013 Range Rover is now available with the new 3.0 litre LR-TDV6 diesel engine in the HSE and Vogue trim levels. The engine joins the 5.0-litre V8 Supercharged petrol and the 4.4-litre V8 diesel engines that were on offer previously.
The new V6 diesel makes 258PS and a maximum torque of 600Nm enabling the aluminium monocoque SUV to sprint to 100kph in in 7.9 seconds.
The 3.0 L LR-TDV6 also brings Start-Stop technology to the Range Rover lineup, improving fuel efficiency considerably. The V6 diesel also has something Land JLR calls ‘active vanes’ in the main grille which optimise aerodynamics by blanking off the grille when cooling airflow isn’t needed.
