The US could be in for a late-decade version of Europe's diesel boom, the opening trickle of which will include vehicles powered by Land Rover's upcoming Compact Graphite Iron (CGI) TDV8 engine currently in development. It'll be 2008 to be exact, according to Land Rover Chronicles, when two new diesel mills will be introduced in Land Rovers (and Jaguars) in the emerging US diesel market. The 3.6 liter V8 powerplant will be fitted in Land Rover LR3 and Range Rover Sport models, plus Jaguar XJ, new XK [!] and S-Type cars. A cleaner, 3.0 liter version of the current 2.7 liter TDV6 will also make it to the US, likely riding along with the new Freelander, and just in time for $10/gal gas.
