Following a report from last week, Land Rover has officially announced that the 2014 Range Rover will be offered with a new supercharged 3.0-liter V6 as its base engine, replacing the naturally aspirated 5.0-liter V8. And not to worry, the charming 510-horsepower supercharged V8 will still be available.
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.
