The 2014 Range Rover is now available on order in United States with a choice of two supercharged engines.
The first engine is a V6 capable of developing 340 hp (253 kW) at 6,500 rpm. It is a replacement for the naturally-aspirated V8 5.0-liter engine of the previous generation Range Rover. The V6-powered model will do the 0-60 mph (0-96 km/h) sprint in 7.1 seconds. This engine has a lightweight die-cast aluminum block and dual independent variable cam timing system.
The other mill is a V8 outputting 510 hp (380 kW), and both of them are connected to an eight-speed automatic transmission from ZF and feature the stop/start technology for increased fuel economy. All engine functions are controlled by a new Bosch management system.
According to a recent report, Land Rover's U.S. dealers are already sold out until early summer.
