Land Rover to Unveil Updated Discovery, Range Rover and Range Rover Sport this week

According to Carscoop sources, Land Rover is serving up a surprise for the New York International Auto Show that opens to the public on April 10, with the unveiling of three facelifted models, the 2010 Discovery (or as it is called in the US, LR3), Range Rover and Range Rover Sports. All three premium SUVs will receive a mid-life update with cosmetic changes in and out. However, the headlines news is the presentation of a new range of more powerful, yet more fuel efficient diesel and gasoline engines.

In particular, as with the recently updated Jaguar XF and XK models, the 2010 Land Rovers adopt a new dual turbocharged 3.0-litre AJ-V6D Gen III diesel engine that produces up to 275HP and a massive 600Nm (443 lbs-ft) of peak torque.

The 2010 Range Rover and its Sport sibling also benefit from the AJ-V8 Gen III direct-injection engine that will be offered in both naturally aspirated and supercharged forms producing 385HP / 515Nm and 510HP / 625Nm respectively. We’ll have more details on all three Land Rovers at the opening of the NY Show.
