Despite advancements in technology and manufacturing, the soul of the iconic Range Rover has changed little over the decades. It’s still the ultimate symbol of go-anywhere, do-anything luxury, even as the new 2017 Bentley Bentayga has the same mission. Yet, despite being outwardly much the same for 2016, a significant update can now be found under the hood of U.S. Rangies: a torquey V-6 turbo-diesel engine befitting the Rover’s posh yet purposeful character.
While diesel Range Rovers have been available in Europe and other markets for years, this is among the first modern Land Rover SUVs to offer a compression-ignition powerplant in America. The 2016 Range Rover Sport also can be ordered with the same Td6 turbocharged 3.0-liter V-6; it develops 254 horsepower in both models. Being a diesel, though, the V-6’s 440 lb-ft of torque serves well against this Range Rover’s 5485-pound mass, and it allows the big ute to move off smartly with the help of the quick-shifting eight-speed automatic gearbox. You can read a morein-depth look at the new engine’s tech here.
For the diesel critics out there, we should note that the Td6 has cleared U.S. emissions regulations, thanks in part to its urea exhaust-aftertreatment system, which requires regular service intervals every 10,000 miles or so. This engine also doesn’t let off any noticeable diesel-y odors, is barely more audible than a direct-injected gasoline V-6, and is only called out to bystanders by a discreet “Td6” badge on the Rover’s tailgate. Having to fill its tank at often-oily diesel pumps is one of the very few demerits.
