New York Times: New Range Rover Turbodiesel Delivers Great Performance and Fuel Economy

Land Rover's all-new turbodiesel version of its venerable Range Rover SUV recently debuted here in the U.S. Despite recent controversy about diesel emissions, New York Times calls the Range Rover Td6, as it is known, a "supremely upscale vehicle" with very good diesel technology. Click "view" in the video clip below to watch the full report.

The engine in the new Range Rover is a 3.0-liter turbocharged V6 diesel that generates 254 horsepower and a remarkable 440 pound-feet of torque, with an eight-speed automatic transmission. Voelk reports that Land Rover handles the diesel emission issue by using a fluid called urea, which mists the exhaust to knock down emissions, turning harmful nitrogen oxide into plain old nitrogen. The urea tank gets filled every 10,000 miles or so.

Inside, Voelk calls the Range Rover "whisper quiet even as it cranks from rest to 60 miles an hour in about seven seconds." Fuel economy is officially rated by the government at 22 miles per gallon in the city, 29 on the highway.
