The Range Rover has three basic powertrain lineups, each with its own set of strengths and weaknesses. The diesel engine is frugal on fuel but underpowered, the V-8 is lusty but inefficient, and the V-6 sits somewhere in between.

Nothing has changed for the supercharged V-6 or the turbo-diesel engines for 2018, but the supercharged V-8 powerplant is now offered in two slightly enhanced potencies. The Supercharged model's V-8 gets a bump of eight horsepower (to 518), while SVAutobiography models see an increase of seven ponies (to 557 horsepower). The SVAutobiography is the only way to get the higher-powered V-8 and starts at more than $175,000. We haven't had the chance yet to test the more powerful V-8s, but the rest of the full-size Range Rover lineup's performance should be the same as last year's models.
