2017 Range Rover Sport Gets a 2.0L Diesel!

Wow Range Rover must be under a lot of pressure to lower their average fuel consumption and CO2 emission, because they have just done something their hard-core fans would consider sacrilege. They have equipped the 2017 Range Rover Sport with a tiny 2.0 liter engine, and it’s a diesel.

Granted, it’s Jaguar’s 2.0-litre four-cylinder Ingenium diesel engine they’re putting in the latest Sport which is one of the best diesel engines in the whole world. But you can already hear Jeremy Clarkson saying “but it’s like having the world’s best sexually transmitted disease,” can’t you?

At any rate, the 2017 Range Rover Sport 2.0 Diesel delivers, on paper at least, decent performance for the average motorist. It packs 240 horsepower and 500Nm of torque, which corresponds to an average fuel consumption of 45.6mpg on the EU combined cycle with emissions of 164g/km, and a 0 to 60 mph time of 8.0 seconds. The diesel Sport is also the cheapest new Range Rover you can get as it is going to cost under £60,000 when it hits the market in winter 2016.

If you want something more potent and less embarrassing, Land Rover is also offering a new 3.0-litre V6 supercharged variant of the 2017 RR Sport with 340 HP and 450Nm of torque combined with CO2 emissions of 243g/km and a 0-60 time of 7.1 seconds. Also new for 2017 is Advanced Tow Assist technology and Low Traction Launch, as well as Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB), Intelligent Speed Limiter, and Driver Condition Monitor.
