RANGE ROVER AND RANGE ROVER SPORT: NEW SPECIAL-EDITION MODELS AND STRAIGHT-SIX MILD-HYBRID DIESEL
Jaguar Land Rover
A new family of 3.0-litre straight-six Ingenium diesel engines and a range of desirable special editions including the Westminster, Westminster Black Edition and an exclusive SVAutobiography Dynamic Black have joined the recently announced Range Rover Fifty celebratory model.
The Range Rover Sport – Land Rover’s most dynamic model ever – also gains a suite of upgrades to enhance its appeal as the ultimate luxury performance SUV. New special-edition models join the existing line-up with the HSE Silver, HSE Dynamic Black and SVR Carbon Edition giving Range Rover Sport buyers more choice than ever.
The latest generation of smooth and efficient straight-six Ingenium diesel engines, incorporating 48V Mild Hybrid Electric Vehicle (MHEV) technology for reduced fuel consumption and heightened refinement, has been developed in-house. It is available in 249PS (183kW), 300PS (221kW) and 350PS (258kW) outputs.*
Three new special edition models join the limited edition Range Rover Fifty, which was revealed last month and celebrates the 50th anniversary of Land Rover’s luxury SUV family.
The new Westminster Edition is based on the Vogue model and available with a choice of petrol, diesel and plug-in hybrid electric power. Privacy Glass and 21-inch Diamond Turned Alloy Wheels set it apart on the outside and the new model is available in a range of solid, metallic and Premium Metallic finishes. Inside, Grand Black Veneers combine with a Suedecloth Headlining, a Sliding Panoramic Roof, Softclose Doors and a powerful 19-speaker Meridian Surround sound system.**
The new Westminster Black Edition adds the Black Exterior Pack and customers are able to choose from three wheels ranging from a 21-inch nine-spoke design to a distinctive 22-inch Gloss Black nine split-spoke design. In addition, the new Range Rover SVAutobiography Dynamic Black provides a fresh take on the distinctive SVAutobiography Dynamic, from the specialists at Land Rover SV.
Enhancements across the rest of the Range Rover line-up include the latest connected features, with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto offered as standard across the range for seamless smartphone integration. With Executive Class Seating and up to eight 4G Wi-Fi connections, the Range Rover remains the perfect remote working hub, or entertainment zone, during long drives.
The latest Ingenium diesel engines are the perfect choice for high-mileage customers and those who regularly tow. Based around Jaguar Land Rover’s modular aluminium engine architecture, the new in-line diesel engines are smoother and more refined than the previous generation and feature advanced 48V mild hybrid technology to meet the most stringent global emissions regulations.
Nick Rogers, Executive Director Product Engineering, Jaguar Land Rover, said: “Our family of clean, refined and efficient Ingenium engines has evolved and expanded to give our customers an even greater choice of in-line four and six-cylinder petrols and diesels. Across the Range Rover family, the application of both mild and plug-in hybrid electric technologies provides the perfect blend of performance and efficiency, making Range Rover one of the first full-sized luxury SUVs in the world to be available with RDE2-certified diesel engines.”
New special-edition models join Range Rover Sport’s existing line-up with the HSE Silver, HSE Dynamic Black and SVR Carbon Edition giving buyers more choice than ever. The existing HST gains another powerful engine option with a new D350 diesel.
The D350 is just one of the latest generation of Land Rover’s new six-cylinder Ingenium diesel engines. They bring 48V Mild-Hybrid Electric Vehicle (MHEV) diesel technology to the Range Rover Sport for the first time and are RDE2-certified. Developed in-house, the new in-line engine is available in D250, D300 and D350 variants, with power outputs ranging from 249PS (183kW) to 350PS (258kW).
The SV Premium Palette paint colour range, which makes lustrous colours and Satin finishes available to all Range Rover Sport customers, has been refreshed with eight new colours including Tourmaline Brown, Amethyst Grey-Purple and Petrolix Blue.
Inside, the purposeful cabin design and elegant details provide an undeniable sense of sporting luxury, while the seamlessly integrated Touch Pro Duo infotainment features enhance connectivity.
Key to the Range Rover Sport’s appeal is its sophisticated design, all-round capability and luxurious interior. Prof Gerry McGovern OBE, Land Rover Chief Creative Officer, said: “The Range Rover Sport is a unique statement of performance with an assertive and powerful design. Its refined appearance speaks to the modernity of the Range Rover family, while a series of unique aesthetic touches mark out its sporting nature. This is an SUV that demands your attention.
