This November, Land Rover will begin the sale of an updated Range Rover Sport that will come equipped with either a 2.7-liter, turbo-diesel V6, or a new TDV8 that produces 40-percent more power and torque than its six-cylinder brethren. Only you can't have either, because they'll only be available in Europe.

While covering all the goings on in Paris last week, the Range Rover press event didn't make it on our short list and that's when news of the new diesel debuted. With a price tag just shy of $100,000, all the luxury accoutrements you'd expect are included, along with some newly developed/acquired technology in the form of adaptive cruise control, dual alarms, voice recognition and an adaptive automatic transmission.

The revised Range Rover Sport we get stateside will hopefully benefit from some of these new features, just don't expect the diesel version to make it over anytime soon.

      Sounds very cool. The Range Rover has always been the king of SUV's. The comfort and features of a luxury car combined with great off-road ability. And the improvements in this version make it slightly better though at a price. It would probably have sold well if it was imported to the States.

      I believe Land Rover has already expressed intentions to bring the TDV8 stateside before 2010. Currently, TDV6 represents the entry-level RRS trim while TDV8 is slotted between the HSE and SC. When it does cross the Pond, base price (before options) will likely be in a range of low to mid 60's consistent with that strategy. For $100K you can fully load up a "proper" Range Rover S/C and probably still have a few dollars left to pay for gas.

      This post is incorrect. The V8 diesel was developed precisely so that one would be available for the US market while meeting all emission requirements. Of course, with Europe's anti-SUV lobby up in arms about gas-guzzling off-roaders that invariably are used for little more than the school run, a more economic Range Rover model is urgently needed in Europe. As soon as demand is satsfied, you can be sure it'll be heading stateside.

      Besides, look on the bright side. When the V8 diesel models to get to the USa hopefully all the bugs will have been ironed out.
