Land Rover LR4

From Land Rover press:   The Land Rover LR4’s 5.0-liter LR-V8 with direct fuel injection and torque-activated Variable Camshaft Timing (VCT) develops 375 hp and 375 lb.-ft. torque and meets the stringent ULEV2 (ultra low emissions vehicle) regulations. Cam profile switching and a variable-length inlet manifold optimize power and torque across the engine speed range, yielding exceptional responsiveness at all speeds and helping make the LR4 an excellent tow vehicle. (Maximum towing capacity is 7,716 lbs. with a braked trailer.) The LR4 can accelerate from zero to 60 mph in a brisk 7.5 seconds (0-100 km/h in 7.9 seconds).

Engineered for rugged off-road travel, the LR-V8 has a deep, pressure die-cast oil pan to accommodate the extreme tilting angles the LR4 can negotiate. Belt drives are waterproofed, as are the alternator, air conditioning compressor, power steering pump and starter motor. With the use of 5W-20 semi-synthetic oil, normal service intervals are extended to 15,000 miles (24,000 km) or 12 months.

The powerful LR-V8 is coupled to a 6-speed adaptive automatic transmission with CommandShift™ featuring Normal, Sport and Manual shift modes. The transmission sends power to all four wheels through an electronically controlled 2-speed transfer case with shift-on-the-move capability.
