United Kingdom 2010 Range Rover Sport Supercharged HSE Stornoway Grey
Best engine

At the moment I have a 4.4 va petrol on 56 plate and looking to upgrade to newer model
My budget will be around £20,000
I’ve seen problems on here with 5.0 s/c
And problems with block cracking on some Diesil engines
Any recommendations
Thanks
Cosmo

United Kingdom 2008 Range Rover Sport TDV8 HSE Stornoway Grey

Each engine has its own issues. The 3 litre diesels can have a crankshaft issue, the TDV8 can have turbo issues. Which diesel is having cracked blocks? 2012 SDV6 - it's missing a couple of cylinders
2008 TDV8 - it was a labour of love and is much missed

which problems, and on the L320 or L494?

whatever you do, avoid the 3.0 diesel --

The 5.0 S/C is relatively problem-free and a superb engine to boot.

SDV6 can have crank problems too but in the minority but if it goes it's still a new crank Thumbs Up

3.0 since when Question Question Question

My 3.0 L320 literally hassle free and anything I did have issues with was covered by the 2 yr used car warranty. So a bit liberal with that assumption, 3.0 litres are excellent in my opinion

I collected 5.0 s/c today and the performance is outstanding for such a heavy motor
Thank you for all the replies regarding what engine

I know what you mean, Cosmo.

I've had my SCV8 for about a week now and every time I drive it, I have this massive grin on my face. Thumbs Up

Gave a ride to a friend yesterday and did a standing start... he was blown away by the acceleration, and said it felt quicker than his BMW bike --
