Land Rover introduces two new diesel SUVs with Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) technology

Niels Tholen - 15 January 2015

Land Rover introduced the diesel Range Rover HSE Td6 and Range Rover Sport HSE Td6 at the Detroit Motor Show this week. Both models will be equipped with Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) technology and a Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) tank large enough for approximately 10,000 miles. The models' aftertreatment technology also includes a low pressure Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) and low pressure Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) systems.

The diesel Td6 turbocharged six-cylinder engine offers a 32% increase in fuel efficiency over the supercharged V6 gasoline engine, and 28 MPG in highway driving conditions. Combined highway and city drive testing by Land Rover achieved an average of 25 MPG, however official Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) test results are pending.

The new models will be available to customers in the U.S. later this year, ahead of the implementation of U.S EPA light-duty emissions standards in 2017.
