2013 Range Rover Sport SDV6 HSE Stornoway Grey
Ford USA to buy SDv6 motors from LR

I appreciate that the SDv6/TDv6 is a Ford/PSA developement of the Peugeot Lion engine re-engineered by LR to suit off-road use but Ford USA is to buy the TDv6 FFRR version of the engine which has a lower output than the RRS's SDv6 to install in the 2017 MY F150 pickup - that will be a lot of engines for LR to make as F150 is the USA's top selling pickup and at the moment is not available with a Diesel engine. LR must be very pleased to be selling engines to Ford after years of being tied to buying Ford engines for the Freelander2, Evoque and Defender2 2018 Melting Silver Mini Countryman PHEV on order for April delivery, bye bye Land Rover after 21 years and 11 LR products..... all because you won’t give me reassurance that should my SDv6 crankshaft break because of a design fault, not MY fault, but the engine builders fault - it will be replaced for free.
2015MY Corris Grey SDv6 HSE Dynamic, but not for much longer........
Also in my garage is a 1996 TDi300 Defender 90 County HT made into a fake CSW

United Kingdom 2008 Range Rover Sport TDV8 HSE Stornoway Grey

I always thought the TDV6 and TDV8 were made by Ford for LR... 2012 SDV6 - it's missing a couple of cylinders
2008 TDV8 - it was a labour of love and is much missed
