2020 Range Rover Arrives In The U.S. With Straight-Six Engine
In case you haven’t heard, Jaguar Land Rover has developed a new inline-six 3.0-liter engine with a mild hybrid twist. It debuted earlier this year in the Range Rover Sport HST where it pumps out 395 horsepower and 406 pound-feet (550 Newton-meters) of torque. The six-cylinder gasoline mill is now finding its way inside the engine bay of the larger Range Rover for the 2020 model year in the United States.
You can have it with 355 horsepower in the entry-level P360 variant or with 395 hp in the hotter HSE P400. The latter will need only 5.9 seconds to reach 60 mph (96 kph) or 6.3 seconds for the 0-62 mph (0-100 kph) task, en route to a top speed of 130 mph (209 kph). The newly developed engine boasts an electric supercharger for better power response as it’s able to spool fully in just 0.5 seconds to virtually eliminate the dreaded turbo lag.
The transition to the 2020MY for the U.S.-spec Range Rover also comes along with two fresh coats of paint: Portofino Blue (replacing Loire Blue) and Eiger Grey (replacing Corris Grey). To spice things up, Land Rover will be offering newly styled 22-inch wheels.
Pricing for the 2020 Range Rover starts at $90,900 for the aforementioned P360 and rises to $209,500 for the range-topping SVAutobiography LWB. If you’re interested in the HSE P400, that’ll set you back $96,150 before options. On top of these prices, customers will have to pay an extra $1,295 for the compulsory taxes and fees.
Launched in the second half of 2012, the current-generation Range Rover is approaching the end of its lifecycle as an all-new model is expected to debut sometime in 2020. The next-gen SUV should lose a lot of weight by switching to the all-new Modular Longitudinal Architecture bound to be used by a variety of JLR models in the next decade. A fully electric derivative might be in the works for a release later in the model’s life, but nothing is official at this point.
As a final note, Land Rover has already announced the new straight-six doesn’t fit inside the Evoque’s engine bay.
