Credit can be given to better emissions controls for a public opinion that’s undergoing a slow transformation in the acceptance of compression-ignition engines.
While the Td6 diesel is new to the States, the Range Rover Sport carries over from last year. Introduced for the 2013 model year, the second generation Range Rover Sport offers a more nimble ride yet still carries more than 60 years of heritage in its design. Like its big brother, the Sport utilizes an all-aluminum chassis to shed weight and add rigidity.
Of course, the three-row SUV comes with Land Rover’s famed Terrain Response 2 system, allowing the driver to tailor the suspension, drivetrain, and peripheral systems to whatever terrain might be under the tires.
The most important aspect – at least in this bit of news – is the new turbodiesel. Range Rover says the new V-6 offers a 32-percent improvement in fuel economy over the supercharged gasoline V-6, making the unofficial numbers equate to 25 mpg combined. The Td6 will begin appearing under Range Rover hoods starting Fall 2015.
UPDATE 05/27/2015: A leaked document suggests the Range Rover Sport Td6 will start at $66,450 – just $1,500 more than the 3.0-liter V-6 gas version. Details in the Prices section.
