Land Rover has announced a series of updates to the 2016 Range Rover Sport.

First and foremost, American consumers will be able to buy a diesel-powered model that features a 3.0-liter Td6 turbodiesel V6 engine that produces 254 bhp (189 kW) and 440 lb-ft (595 Nm) of torque.  It should enable the model to return an estimated 24 mpg combined.

On the topic of diesel engines, the SDV8 diesel engine will be equipped with an engine start/stop system.

Moving on, the InControl Remote has been renamed InControl Protect and will automatically contact emergency services in the event of an accident. There will also be a new InControl Remote Premium service that will allow owners to remotely lock / unlock the vehicle, reset the alarm as well as flash the lights and honk the horn.

The 2016 Range Rover Sport also gains improved rearview and surround cameras as well as newly standard All Terrain Progress Control and Auto Access Height systems.

There's also a variety of new personalization options including a new Carbon Fiber Pack that adds high-gloss lacquer accents to the grille surround, mirrors, side vents and tailgate.
