Land Rover has introduced the Range Rover HSE Td6 and the Range Rover Sport HSE Td6 diesel models for the USA during the 2015 NAIAS.

Both vehicles are powered by a 3.0-liter diesel unit generating 254 HP (186 kW) and 596 Nm (440 lb-ft) of torque at 1750 rpm. The powerplant is mated to an eight-speed automatic gearbox by ZF. This setup enables the Range Rover and the Range Rover Sport models in HSE Td6 specification to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (0-62 mph) in 7.4 and 7.1 seconds respectively.

The manufacturer says the average fuel consumption is 32% better compared to the supercharged petrol V6 unit. The models will return 22 mpg (10.7 l/100 km) in the city and 28 mph (8.4 l/100 km) on the highway, which translates into 25 mpg (9.4 l/100 km) combined.
