Range Rover gets new straight-six with mild hybrid tech for 2020

Land Rover will offer two different versions of the inline-six.


Land Rover has announced a revised powertrain lineup for its 2020 Range Rover SUV that includes a new turbocharged inline-six gas engine paired with a mild hybrid system.

The new turbo straight-six -- which replaces last year's supercharged V6 -- will be available in two different forms. Entry-level Range Rover models will use a 355 horsepower version of the engine that will be badged P360. The up-range P400 -- which boasts 395 horsepower and 406 lb-ft of torque -- will be exclusive to the Range Rover HSE.

Land Rover says the P400-equipped Range Rover HSE will be able to scoot from 0-60 in 5.9 seconds and hit a top speed of 130mph. Fuel economy figures haven't been announced, but the mild hybrid system should net a noticeable improvement in fuel consumption compared to the outgoing V6.

The 2020 Range Rover P360 will carry a base price of $90,900. Prices for the Range Rover P400 will start from $96,150. All prices exclude a mandatory $1,295 destination charge.

Other changes to the Range Rover line for the 2020 model year include two new paint colors -- Eiger Gray and Portofino Blue -- and optional gloss black 22-inch wheels.

Land Rover's full lineup of 2020 Range Rover models is available for order now.
