Revised 2011 Range Rover with New 313HP V8 Diesel

Didn’t Land Rover introduce a facelift version of the Range Rover just over a year ago? Yes it did, but in its quest to keep up with the competition the Tatra-owned British automaker has revealed an updated 2011 model year version of its flagship 4×4.

The big news for the 2011 Range Rover is the introduction of an all-new 4.4-liter turbo diesel engine producing 313HP and 700Nm / 516.3 lb-ft of peak torque that replaces the current 3.6-liter with 271HP and 640Nm.

The V8 diesel is matched up to an also new ZF 8-speed automatic gearbox with paddle shifts. Land Rover claims that with this engine, the luxury 4×4 returns a combined fuel economy of 30.1mpg UK (equal to 25.1 mpg US and 9.4lt/100km) making it the first Range Rover ever to better 3 0mpg UK.

The diesel-powered Range Rover goes from rest to 60mph (96km/h) in 7.5 seconds and completes the 50mph-75mph dash in 5.1 seconds.

As far as the rest of the range is concerned, all 2011 Range Rovers benefit from an updated Terrain Response which gains Hill Start Assist and Gradient Acceleration Control, some minor styling revisions to the nose, additional exterior colors and a new Exterior Design Pack option.

The Exterior Design Pack comprises of a revised front bumper with fog lamp surrounds, front grille and side vents in Titan finish, revised side sills, rear bumper and stainless steel exhaust finishers.

The 2011 Range Rover will arrive at the firm’s showrooms this fall.
