The venerable Range Rover has been given a few upgrades for 2011, including an all-new 4.4L diesel engine displacing 309 bhp and getting 30.1 mpg. The new diesel is also coupled to an 8-speed automatic, which should filter down to the rest of the lineup soon. The new Range also gets a rotary knob similar to Jaguar’s, rather than a traditional gear selector.
Outside, new wheels and a new front fascia complete the mid-cycle changes. Some of the options should filter down to North America, but don’t expect the diesel to hit our shores any time soon.
