Range Rover Sport scores Velar’s straight-six

Power of six: The Range Rover Sport’s new petrol six-cylinder slots into the range below the savage V8s.

JLR adds the Range Rover Velar’s six-banger to RR Sport line-up for 2022

15 Feb 2021

JAGUAR Land Rover (JLR) Australia has added a new six-cylinder petrol engine to its Range Rover Sport line-up with the new mill discernible by its ‘P400’ designation.


Not due to arrive Down Under until July, the new engine will be ushered in as part of the 2022 model year rollover and will be found under the bonnet of the P400 SE ($128,206) and P400 HSE ($144,906).


Lifted straight out from under the bonnet of the full-fat Range Rover Velar, the P400 is a turbocharged 3.0-litre straight-six boosted further by an electric supercharger designed to mitigate turbo lag.


When all is said and done, peak power and torque are rated at 294kW and 550Nm respectively, fed to all four wheels via an eight-speed automatic transmission.


The whole system is paired with a 48V mild-hybrid (MHEV) system featuring regenerative braking and the ability to intermittently “redeploy” energy through “torque-assist”.


According to JLR product engineering executive director Nick Rogers, the brand’s new range of straight-sixes are “inherently better balanced than V6 designs”.


“Advanced features, including an electric supercharger, ensure distinctive Range Rover Sport performance and responses, while the intelligent MHEV system harvests energy to improve fuel economy and reduce emissions,” he said.


On the subject of emissions, JLR says the P400 emits 236 grams of CO2 per kilometre while claimed fuel economy on the combined cycle is 8.7 litres per 100km.


No other spec or line-up changes will be implemented into the MY22 update of the Range Rover Sport other than the axing of the Si4 SE variant which was powered by a 221kW/400Nm turbocharged 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine.


Changes have been made to the pricing however with JLR Australia confirming to GoAuto it made some price changes last month to the ‘MY21.5’ range which will be carried over to the new MY22 line-up.


That price increase was a constant $2021 across the board, meaning the entry price to the Range Rover Sport range is now $115,506 (D250 SE) while the flagship P575 SVR Carbon Edition now retails for $275,927.


JLR Australia sold 171 Range Rover Sports last month, enough to see it take fourth within the $70,000-plus large SUV segment with a 9.8 per cent segment share behind the BMW X5 (305/17.2%), Mercedes-Benz GLE wagon (262/15%) and Audi Q7 (177/10.1%).
