 2014 Range Rover available on order in U.S. with supercharged V6 and V8 engines
2013 Range Rover world debut at Paris Motor Show

340 hp V6 and 510 hp V8

The 2014 Range Rover is now available on order in United States with a choice of two supercharged engines.

The first engine is a V6 capable of developing 340 hp (253 kW) at 6,500 rpm. It is a replacement for the naturally-aspirated V8 5.0-liter engine of the previous generation Range Rover. The V6-powered model will do the 0-60 mph (0-96 km/h) sprint in 7.1 seconds. This engine has a lightweight die-cast aluminum block and dual independent variable cam timing system.

The other mill is a V8 outputting 510 hp (380 kW), and both of them are connected to an eight-speed automatic transmission from ZF and feature the stop/start technology for increased fuel economy. All engine functions are controlled by a new Bosch management system.

According to a recent report, Land Rover's U.S. dealers are already sold out until early summer.

Further details are available in the attached press release.

Following the sales success of the all-new 2013 Range Rover, the 2014 Range Rover is now available for order, with deliveries beginning this summer
• A new 340hp 3-liter supercharged V6 will offer improved efficiency with reduced emissions and uncompromised capability
• A 510hp supercharged 5-liter V8 will continue to be available - The 2014 Range Rover will be equipped with a new Intelligent
Stop/Start system which reduces idling to reduce emissions and
save fuel - Both engines will be paired with an eight-speed ZF 8HP70 - Introduced for 2013, the high-strength all-aluminum Range Rover
weighs approximately 700lbs less than the previous generation
(MAHWAH, NJ) February 19, 2013 - On the heels of a massively successful launch of the 2013 all-new Range Rover, Land Rover is opening retail orders for the 2014 Range Rover, which will be in showrooms this summer.
The upcoming 2014 Range Rover will be available with a new and more efficient 340hp supercharged V6 engine. This new engine choice combines effortless performance and exceptional refinement with enhanced fuel efficiency. The supercharged V6 engine will be offered alongside the 510hp supercharged V8. Both engines will be paired with an eight-speed ZF 8HP70 automatic transmission. The supercharged V6 will replace the naturally aspirated 5-liter V8 in the model line-up.
With the new supercharged V6, the 2014 Range Rover will reach 60 mph from
rest in just 7.1 seconds*. The supercharged 3-liter 90 degree V6 engine was T developed from the existing 5-liter V8. With a peak output of 340hp at
6,500rpm, it offers a strong torque curve throughout the engine speed range,

The new engine has been engineered to support the full breadth of capability expected from a Range Rover, including extreme off-road tilt angles up to 45 degrees, wading depth of nearly 36 inches (900mm) and towing weight up to
oil pan which features a deep profile and oil pick-up is designed to operate at tilt angles of up to 45 degrees fore/aft. The four-cam V6 shares features a lightweight die-cast aluminum block supplemented with cross-bolted main bearing caps for strength. The valves are controlled by a dual independent variable cam timing (DIVCT) system which is activated by the positive and negative torques generated by the movement of the intake and exhaust valves. This variable timing system features actuation rates of more than 150 degrees per second, to optimize power, torque and economy at all engine speeds. Counter-rotating front and rear balancer weights are engineered into this 90 degree V6 to maximize smoothness and refinement.
Land Rover's Intelligent Stop/Start system helps enhance fuel efficiency in stop and go driving by reducing engine idling under certain conditions which saves fuel and cuts emissions.
Spray-guided direct injection (SGDI) delivers precise quantities of fuel directly into the combustion chambers at pressures of up to 150bar (2175PSI). The fuel is injected in a matter of milliseconds several times during each combustion cycle, creating a more homogenous air-fuel mixture for cleaner and more efficient combustion. A high compression ratio of 10.5:1 further improves fuel efficiency and reduces emissions. The latest-generation Roots-type twin vortex supercharger is mounted in the 'V' of the engine and the charge air utilizes an air/liquid intercooler. A new Bosch engine management system controls all engine functions.
When coupled to a high-strength yet lightweight all-aluminum structure this new powertrain further builds on the efficiency gains of the new Range Rover.

Just to be clear, the 2013 model is sold out and not the 2014 model. You can begin ordering the 2014 model during early summer. Correct?
