2024 Range Rover SV Gets a Boost from BMW’s Twin-Turbo V8

The 2024 Range Rover SV is the ultimate luxury SUV, and it now comes with a new engine option that delivers more power and performance than ever before. The SV-exclusive P615 variant features a 4.4-litre twin-turbo V8 engine from BMW, with mild-hybrid technology to improve efficiency. The result is a whopping 606 hp (454 kW) and 553 lb-ft (750 Nm) of torque, making it one of the most potent Range Rovers ever.

The P615 joins the P530 variant, which also uses a BMW-sourced 4.4-litre twin-turbo V8 with mild-hybrid assistance, but with a lower output of 523 hp (390 kW) and 553 lb-ft (750 Nm) of torque. Both variants are paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission and an all-wheel-drive system, and offer impressive acceleration and refinement.

The 2024 Range Rover SV also benefits from other updates that apply to the entire Range Rover line-up, such as a new 13.1-inch touchscreen with the latest Pivi Pro infotainment system, a new Country Road Assist feature that adapts the speed to the road conditions using navigation data, and a Dynamic Response Pro system that reduces body roll by applying torque to each axle.

The 2024 Range Rover SV also offers two plug-in hybrid options, the P460e and the P550e, which combine a 3.0-litre six-cylinder petrol engine with a 160-kW electric motor for a total output of 454 hp (338 kW) and 542 hp (404 kW), respectively. Both variants can travel up to 51 miles (82 km) on electric power alone, according to the US EPA estimates.

The 2024 Range Rover SV will go on sale in early 2024, with prices and specifications to be announced closer to launch. It will compete with other high-end SUVs such as the Aston Martin DBX, the Bentley Bentayga, and the Mercedes-AMG GLS.
