The 2013 Range Rover gets an additional engine option in India. It now comes with the option of a 3.0 litre V6 diesel engine. Peak power is 258 Bhp while peak torque is rated at a chunky 600 Nm. It is mated to an 8 speed automatic gearbox while an all wheel drive system is standard on this mammoth SUV. Of course pricing should be substantially lower as well as improvement in FE will be there as well.

This engine also powers the Jaguar XF and XJ diesel sedans

Prices for the Range Rover 3.0 diesel (Ex showroom Mumbai without octroi)

HSE - Rs. 1.44 crore

Vogue - Rs. 1.64 crore

Note that these are post budget prices

Excellent step by Land Rover. A smaller and cheaper engine will help lower the price and broaden the market of this fantastic SUV. 600Nm is more than enough to see you through any stick conditions.

What was LR thinking when they launched RR w/o this engine option? From a purely technical point of view the new lighter RR with V6 diesel will be a fast and dynamically better than the V8 petrol of the previous generation . Also people buying SUV worth 2 crore, people won't mind about the FE either but even the rich nowadays look at price point thought in which this newer engine will more than suffice.

Another point to add here is, JLR is doing R&D to make smaller yet fine and powerfull Diesel engines specific for Indian market (as there are also talk/plans that these smaller once can also be used by TATA SUV). One of them is a 2 Ltr diesel which can easily fit in Safari.

Traditionally, Range Rovers always came with V8 petrol engines. We used to say, it isn't a Range Rover if it isn't a V8. So the diesel option will always be launched a little after the V8.
