Jalopy had it poster yesterday that all rovers will have a diesel option next year. Jag as well with the exception of one model jag.

Only having the rr with it would price a bunch of people that want a oil burning rover out of the market and many people that buy the rr could care less about oil burners and many would not want one.

With gas prices soo low right now it will be interesting to see how well they sell especially if they limit it to the rr.

Great time to buy a diesel, got my VW TDI $3k under nada...

Analyst think the bottom of the fuel barrel will hit this summer and start to rise by the end of the year. American's have short term memory when it comes to gas prices, good opportunity to get a left over diesel RR for short money

"(MAHWAH, NJ) - January 11, 2015 - Land Rover will offer consumers the option of fuel efficient diesel powertrains in two 2016 model year luxury SUVs, the Range Rover and Range Rover Sport. The Range Rover Td6 and Range Rover Sport Td6 SUVs will deliver 25 miles per gallon combined, a 32 percent improvement over the supercharged V6, and reach a high of 28 miles per gallon on the highway."

Uh, Land Rover, why not the LR4? As mentioned, very few Range Rover buyers in the US are going to be interested, and I seriously doubt ANY Range Rover Sport buyers are going to interested, since it is marketed to the sport end of the marketplace.

LR4 is probably the only model that would have significant interest. Once Again, I don't get it LR..

I thought the plan for the LR5/Disco5 was going to have a diesel. That's fall of 2016 right?

I pretty sure their plans are started much farther back than when the oil prices dropped.... They probably would have committed two years ago to make the 2016 model year.
