The stylish Evoque and the renewed Range Rover are the models which are drawing the most attention at the Land Rover stand of the 2012 Los Angeles Motor Show. The latter will initially be available with three different engine options, two diesel and one gasoline, but in the future a hybrid version with the well-known 3.9-litre V6 (producing 286 horsepower and 560 Nm of torque) combined with an electric motor housed directly into the gearbox (with 47 hp and 170 Nm) is also expected to join the fold.
The petrol engine option of the new Range Rover - the most powerful unit of the range - will power the LRV8 variant and is credited with an output of 510 horsepower and 625 Nm of maximum torque, enough to push the British SUV from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 5.4 seconds. The two diesel options are a 3.0-liter V6 and a 4.4-liter TD SD V8.
The Range Rover TDV6 will count on 258 horsepower and 600 Nm of torque at 2,000 rpm, with an average fuel consumption of 7.2 liters per 100 km. The most powerful diesel version, the Range Rover SDV8, will have no less than 339 hp at its disposal, with 700 Nm of maximum torque available between 1,750 and 3,000 rpm. The Range Rover Evoque also boasts three different engines, two diesel and one petrol engine, with output ranging between 150 and 240 hp.
