Land Rover's big new Range Rover Mk4 will add a supercharged 3.0 litre V6 to its line-up this year, arriving in Australia in the fourth quarter of 2013.
Already powering the Jaguar XJ limo, the new V6 will be offered alongside the Range Rover's existing diesel V6 and V8 engines, and the top-shelf supercharged petrol V8.
In the new Range Rover, the 3.0 litre supercharged six produces 250kW and 450Nm of torque, with power sent to all four wheels through the familiar eight-speed automatic transmission.
Land Rover says the big six will propel the 'Rangey' to 100km/h in a sharp 7.4 seconds.
Fuel consumption figures have not been released, but Land Rover promises an improvement over the old NA V8 engine of around 15 percent, suggesting figures in the realm of 12.0 l/100km.
The big 4WD will keep its 3500kg tow rating listed for the RR's larger engines, and its continued off-roadability is also assured.
Watch for the new super V6 to hit Australia later this year.
