Even if the US is a market that does not have a high appeal for diesel engines, Land Rover wants to offer this option on its current Range Rover Sport. The new engine will be available on the 2016 version of Range Rover Sport, together with other improvements.

Diesel Engine

The diesel engine is a 3.0-litre Td6 turbocharged V6. The 254 hp engine delivers 440 lb-ft of torque and fuel consumption of 24 miles per gallon combined.

InControl Protect

InControlTM Remote is renamed InControlTM Protect for 2016 Model Year and  allows owners to check the fuel level remotely, automatically contact the emergency services in the event of an accident and communicate with Land Rover Assistance.

The new InControlTM Remote Premium service allows owners to lock and unlock the vehicle remotely, reset the alarm and sound the horn and flash the lights to help identify the vehicle in crowded car parks.  Land Rover’s rear-view and surround cameras are improved to provide superior clarity.

All Terrain Progress Control

All Terrain Progress Control is fitted as standard to all 2016 Range Rover Sports featuring Terrain Response 2 technology, for advanced off-road capability. New Auto Access Height is introduced as standard, for improved ease of entry and exit. The system automatically lowers the vehicle to access height when it comes to a halt and a door is opened.
