    I hope you are sitting down as this will be a shock to any RR drivers who think they have a thoroughbred Rangie :D

    It was designed by Ford and is built at Dagenham on the same production line as the TDV6 ;)

    I've heard (on a different forum) that the TDV6 & 8 are somewhat unreliable. This is a pity as I'd like to upgrade to a Range Rover. What does the panal think?

    Tdv6 was a jaguar/pug engine designed and built by ford. It's name is the lion engine.
    Blocks are made in south amercia.
    Both v8 and v6 are pretty reliable considering the modern emission laws which are now half the engine. Specially with 3.0tdv6 opposed to the basic 2.7

    650 Lb/Ft of torque!! Holy **** - now that's proper grunt. Super Landy!
    I would love a TDV8 with an auto box in a 90 but not in this life sadly.
    Happy motoring!
