Land Rover LR3

Land Rover LR3 broadens its line-up with the addition of a V6 engine, giving consumers a greater level of trim choices for the award winning SUV. Additionally, the highly popular third row seating option is now standard on all HSE models. Since its introduction last year, LR3’s powerful on-road performance, unparalleled off-road standards, and state-of-the-art technologies have set a new industry standard.

In addition to the existing 4.4-liter 300 bhp V8 engine, LR3 offers the new 4.0-liter 216 bhp V6 engine. All V6 models come equipped with a long list of four-wheel drive technologies including the innovative Terrain Response™ system, and four-corner electronic air suspension.

As with the current V8, the V6 engine is mated to a six-speed ‘intelligent shift’ electronically controlled ZF automatic transmission. Its ‘sport’ mode delivers more performance-oriented throttle response and gear shifts, and features Land Rover’s CommandShift™ operation – giving the driver full manual control of gear changing. All LR3’s come with a two-speed electronic transfer gearbox and permanent four-wheel drive with traction control.
