Range Rover gets even more sophisticated

Published 27 July 2018

Range Rover SUV has become sophisticated with the latest enhancements to its engine line-up and driver-assistance technology.

A powerful new 275PS 3.0-litre twin-turbo SDV6 engine for European markets provides a 17PS improvement over the existing TDV6 3.0-litre unit. The advanced new diesel powerplant combines performance with efficiency to deliver 625Nm of torque, fuel consumption of 36.7mpg (7.7 l/100km) and CO2 emissions of 202/km (1).

In addition, Land Rover’s 4.4-litre SDV8 diesel is now available with an enhanced eight-speed automatic gearbox that delivers superior efficiency by reducing fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.

 These powertrains join the state-of-the-art P400e plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) launched last year and offering an all-electric zero-emissions range of 51km. PHEV owners in China now have access to Predictive Energy Optimisation (PEO), not previously available in this market. The intelligent navigation system uses route data to calculate the most energy efficient route.

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

The effortless performance and driver comfort of Range Rover is improved with the addition of Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop and Go. This enables the vehicle to maintain a set distance from the car in front and to follow it to a stop and pull away again, if stationary for less than three seconds.

This is available alongside Adaptive Cruise Control with Steering Assist. This system helps keep the vehicle centred in its lane by applying moderate steering interventions with the driver’s hands on the wheel. The technology uses lane markings and, or where no lane markings can be detected, the path of the vehicle in front. Switching lanes or braking deactivates the system.
