The 2013 Range Rover is on waiting lists so long that Land Rover isn't even importing the base model for lack of sufficient uptake in view of limited resources. When that backlog is all cleared up, there's a 15-page booklet worth of changes coming for the 2014 model year, the biggest of which is the disappearance of the naturally aspirated 5.0-liter V8 engine. It will be replaced in the base Range Rover and the HSE with a supercharged 3.0-liter V6.

The new Rangie's aesthetics have changed to help it improve its overall Earth friendliness, and that's the reason given for the engine switch: following "the widespread industry trend to downsize engines due to GHG [greenhouse gasses] legislation which requires continuing efforts to improve emissions and fuel consumption." The V8 produced 375 horsepower and 375 pound-feet of torque, the supercharged V6 gets 340 hp and 332 lb-ft. That slows the 0-to-60 mile-per-hour time from 6.5 seconds to 7.1, but improves gas mileage by two miles per gallon across the board to 16 city, 22 highway and 18 combined and CO2 emissions drop by 22 percent. Stop/start will come standard on both the V6 and the supercharged 5.0-liter V8, that latter engine still standard fitment on the Supercharged and Autobiography trims.

Elsewhere on the velveteen exploration mobile, the price of the Adaptive Cruise Control will drop from $2,000 to $1,295. The Active Rear Locking Differential gets combined with the Tow Package; both are available separately on the Supercharged and Autobiography trims for $1,400 total right now, combined the two will cost $1,300 on the 2014 model. The LED signature lamps, an option with the Vision Assist package, will be standard across the range, and two new colors are added and one disappears.

      It's all garbage. They're willing to change a motor but won't put in something worthwhile like either the TDV8 or TDV6. I had a new 07 full size RRSC but will never have another LR again until they put in the better Diesel engine as an option for North America.

      If they're going to drop the V8, then they better be willing to drop the price by a third. Just read how disappointing the V6 turbo they're shoving in the F150 has been in real life reviews. How is this going to be any different???? This is a loser move by LR!!

        The regular V8 was dropped, not the supercharged V8. In all reality most of the V6 models will be curb crawling at Bloomingdale\'s instead of off roading. The V6 is more than adequate for the average buyer/leaser of one of these.

        Any "Real life reviews" to back up your F150 claim? I have seen nothing but positive reviews about the F150 ecoboost.

        I was going to post the same thing before I saw your post. The vehicle is no longer a premium buy if they go with a turbo V6.

        Right, because the people at JLR haven't thought of any of this. They're just pulling ideas from the trees. Uh-huh. The EcoBoost V6 is doing great in the F-150, by the way. Selling like hot cakes.

      I don't like this TATA scam. They are switching the V8s to V6s and then trying to charge the same money or more. If you price out a 2012 Jaguar XJ with the V8 and a 2013 with the V6 the price is the same or maybe a little more on the 2013. It should be much less, at least $5,000.

      I thought these were sold out. Its going to be a slow pig with a V6.

      This is for the lessees...driving a $90k car and complaining about mileage is tacky. These are the same people that buy Toll Bros houses with brickface on the front and vinyl siding on the other 3 sides....

        Better fuel economy means better range and less trips to the gas station. That's more important to a lot of people than outright power regardless of how much money they have.

          First of all DriftWeezle if you are going to talk about engines, know that there is a difference between turbo and supercharged. The Rover will be supercharged. This is going to start happening a lot in the auto industry due to regulations and standards. We are now using that engine in the Jaguar XJ and XF models and seeing significant fuel mileage increases.

          JC, those mpg numbers are achieved when the turbo is barely engaged, if at all. If you drive this in the same manner as you'd drive the current V8, the mpg figure will be very close to the V8. This move to add smaller turbo'd engines only looks good on paper and satisfies CAFE, but in real world driving is very very disappointing and sometimes counter productive.

      I approve of this change. Would love to see one of the Euro diesels make it here though.

        I agree with Mike that a diesel would be a much more appropriate change. Not a V6.

      I mean... let's be honest, the average buyer won't notice... not care.

      If they can get a real world 18 mpg with the V6 I will be impressed.

      I think they were having an event in NYC yesterday night for press. I saw a fully loaded black one sitting on 57th St and 2nd Ave yesterday with a driver in it. Had manufacturer plates on it, I believe. It looked really good in person.
