Following reports last month of a letter to dealers outlining the range, Land Rover has today announced the 2011 Range Rover. An update of the current generation, the 'new' Range Rover sees a 4.4 litre V8 TDV8 diesel added to the line-up, along with a new transmission.

Styling updates are minimal, with modest design tweaks to the front end (including the 'Jupiter' grille treatment), along with new colours and a new Exterior Design Pack.

While the existing LRV8 petrol engine is retained, Land Rover's 3.6 litre TDV8 is replaced by a new 4.4 litre TDV8, claimed to be 15 percent more powerful than its predecessor, producing 235kW and 700Nm of torque.

Paired with a ZF eight-speed automatic transmission, the new engine offers a 0-100km/h time of 7.5 seconds.

Despite the increase in power and capacity, the new engine is claimed to use just 9.4 l/100km, bettering the 11.1 l/100km of the current 3.6 litre TDV8 used in the Range Rover and Range Rover Sport.

Other new features include an updated Terrain Response system, gaining Hill Start Assist and Gradient Acceleration Control.

Braking is managed by large 380mm ventilated front discs, gripped by lightweight aluminium six-piston opposed-action monoblock calipers. At the rear are 365mm discs with single-piston sliding calipers.

Inside, there are optional illuminated footplates for the front doors, revised transmission controls for the updated diesel model, and a revised entertainment system.

While Land Rover has not confirmed dates, the letter that revealed 2011 Range Rover's details also indicated that an updated Range Rover Sport will appear in late August.

An all-new Range Rover line-up is expected to arrive in 2012, with reports out of Europe last month claiming a weight-loss of around 450kg and a fuel economy as low as 7.0 l/100km for the turbo-diesel V6 model.

The updated 2011 Range Rover will arrive in Australia in early 2011, although specific pricing and dates will not be revealed until closer to next year.
