Land Rover is looking to introduce a range of petrol engines for its SUVs in India. Currently, only select variants of the Range Rover and Range Rover Sport are available with the option of a 5.0-litre Supercharged V8 petrol engine, while the rest of the Land Rover line –up uses diesel engines only.

The new petrol engines are likely to be a 236.7bhp,20-litre four –cylinder turbocharged motor and a larger 335.4bhp, 3.0-litre supercharged V6.
The Range Rover Evoque is likelyto be powered by the 2.0- litre four cylinder , turbo-petrol motor which will come paired with a nine- speed automatic gearbox. The larger discovery, Range Rover Sport and Ranger Rover could get the 3.0-litre Supercharged V6 petrol motor with and eight-speed automatic gearbox.
