In a move that’s hardly shocking to North Americans, Range Rover insiders told Autocar that the all-new TDV8 diesel engine will not be offered in North America.

While the new TDV8 offers significant gains in emissions and fuel consumption over the previous diesel unit, it still fails to meet U.S. emissions standards, which are in line with the Euro 6 standard set to appear in 2014. Europe is still using the Euro 5 standard, which does not meet U.S. requirements. Fortunately, the next Range Rover TDV8, set to bow around 2014, is listed as “very likely” to come to the U.S. then”.
