3.0-litre supercharged six makes 340 hp
Land Rover has confirmed a new 3.0-litre supercharged V6 will replace the naturally aspirated 5.0-litre V8 as the base engine in the 2014 Range Rover.
A 510-horsepower 5.0-litre supercharged V8 will, however, remain as an option.
The new V6 – it's borrowed from the Jaguar XF and XJ, according to AutoBlog – makes 340 horsepower and 332 lb. ft. of torque. Like the V8, it will be mated to an eight-speed ZF automatic transmission.
The new engine makes the base 2014 Range Rover slightly quicker, with a zero-to-100 km/h time of roughly 7.1 seconds, and plenty fast, with a top speed of 210 km/h (130 mph).
The V6 has been fitted with an automatic stop-start to save gas while idling; Land Rover predicts it should deliver fuel economy somewhere in the 13 L/100 km (18 mpg) range.
The 2014 Range Rover goes on sale this summer.
