Available in both HSE and Vogue trim levels.
If you think about 'luxury SUV', you think about Range Rover. The British SUV is synonymous to the genre, isn't it? But while buying one makes sense, spending unnecessarily on fuel doesn't. And the guys at Land Rover must have thought why not fit the car with an efficient but powerful engine, an engine that could carry the weight of the SUV and all its occupants without breaking a sweat, an engine that will still enable you to cruise on (and off) the tarmac without making irritatingly frequent fuel stops.
Well LR seem to have an answer in the form of the 3.0-litre TDV6 engine, which is now available in the 2013 Range Rover. Mated to an 8-speed ZF Automatic gearbox, the engine produces 258PS of power at 4000 rpm and 600Nm of torque at 2000 rpm. The 0-100 km/h takes around 7.9 seconds and the company claims that the engine's quite fuel efficient too. While the spec sheet suggests that the Range Rover 3.0-litre TDV6 is around a 200kg lighter than the 4.4-litre V8-equipped variant, it gets a smaller fuel tank (85L).
It will be made available in two trim levels: HSE and Vogue. Keep the cheque books ready!
