The 2.7 TDV6 develops 190bhp, which may not sound that much given the weight of the vehicles it is fitted in, but the most important figure is torque — and the 2.7 TDV6 has that in abundance, a whopping 325lb ft of the stuff at a meagre 1,900rpm. And fuel economy isn’t bad either, getting in excess of 35mpg on a run is not unheard of.
Part of the Lion engine family the 2.7 TDV6 was developed by Ford and also used by Jaguar and Peugeot Citroen. However to maximise low speed torque for towing or off road use Land Rover fitted a large capacity single turbocharger rather than use the twin turbo version. Along with a large cooling fan and high capacity sump this helps maintain oil pressure when driving off road at extreme angles or high load towing.
Having laid all this praise, if the 2.7 TDV6 breaks then it is expensive to replace so good maintenance is essential. Here at K Motors we cover everything from servicing to complete engine rebuilds.
