The 2020 Land Rover Range Rover V6 will be replaced by an inline six-cylinder sourced from Jaguar Land Rover’s Ingenium line. The engine uses an electric supercharger to pump out 355 horsepower (to start), an increase of 15 hp over the previous generation. The new engine comes with a small battery and a mild hybrid system to run the supercharger and boost fuel efficiency. The Land Rover Range Rover is an enduring icon of timeless style, Old World elegance, and go-anywhere capability.
The 2020 Range Rover looks the same as it has through most of this past decade, but under the hood, changes are afoot. Most significant among these is a new plug-in-hybrid model, dubbed P400e. There’s also a new mild-hybrid 6-cylinder engine to replace the old base V-6. Aside from powertrain updates, Land Rover has revealed a limited-edition Range Rover Fifty model; some 1,970 units will be built in commemoration of the model’s golden anniversary of uninterrupted production.
Back to the engines for a moment: the base engine in the 2020 Range Rover is now the aforementioned 6-cylinder with mild-hybrid tech. It makes either 355 horsepower in P360 trim or 395 horsepower in the P400 trim. There’s a 48-volt starter/generator for extended stop/start performance in an effort to improve fuel efficiency.
2020 Range Rover Engine Choices
The Range Rover comes with no fewer than six different engine choices, although two are just higher tunes. The new inline six-cylinder should bring trademark Jaguar smoothness to the SUV.
|Engine Type||Horsepower||Torque||Fuel Economy (Combined)|
|P360 3.0L Inline 6-Cylinder||355 hp||365 lb-ft||Not Yet Rated|
|3.0L V6 Turbodiesel||254 hp||443 lb-ft||24 mpg|
|P400 3.0L Inline 6-Cylinder||395 hp||406 lb-ft||Not Yet Rated|
|P400e Plug-In Hybrid||398 hp||472 lb-ft||Not Yet Rated|
|P525 5.0L Supercharged V8||518 hp||461 lb-ft||18 mpg|
|P565 5.0L Supercharged V8||557 hp||516 lb-ft||16 mpg|
All engines use an eight-speed automatic transmission. The base model is only available with the P360 and diesel engines; the HSE can be had with the diesel, P400, P400e, and P525 powertrains; the Autobiography is available with the P400e and P525; while the P565 engine is reserved for the SVAutobiography Dynamic.
The plug-in hybrid may be more popular among American buyers than the diesel, but the diesel will likely equal or better its fuel economy, and it’s available at a lower price point. Notably, the plug-in hybrid powertrain is cheaper than its gas equivalent at the HSE trim level.
The Range Rover comes with a healthy amount of active safety tech. Parking sensors and the automatic emergency braking are standard, along with the sophisticated all-wheel-drive system. Features like blind-spot monitoring and adaptive cruise control are standard on higher trims.
