Sure. The upcoming 2016 US model Range Rover Td6. (I realize other countries have had diesels for years.)

...madre my test drive two hours ago. .., does it count?
Anyhow I'm impressed, I drive an ML350 Premium BlueTec which claims to have more torque BUT the RR seems to give roughly the same amount @ half RPM and with as much noise as an electric car.

So far, looks like I am the only one. I think JLR is expecting a 20% take rate. Will be interesting to see what the reality is. I know that other makers do reasonably well with their diesel SUVs in the US.

They apparently locked down the diesel orders early. I wonder if that means they will be built and delivered earlier than September.

When you say locked down, do you mean that the "no more changes" date has been brought forward?

Yes. It was brought forward about 3 weeks or so.
