Diesel engines shouldn’t be in luxury cars. They’re louder than gas engines, they smell, they run rougher and they pollute more. Right?

These stereotypes are founded in a piece of the truth with older diesel engines, but getting behind the wheel of a modern incarnation quickly dismisses any notion that these powerplants can’t be smooth, quiet and luxurious. That is exactly the case with the Land Rover Range Rover Td6 HSE.

A posh British luxo-barge, the Range Rover just began offering a diesel engine in North America for the 2016 model year.

Power in this version of the Rover comes from a 3.0-liter V6 turbodiesel that makes 254 horsepower and 440 lb-ft of torque, the latter coming on at 1,750 rpm. All the power is sent to all four wheels through an eight-speed transmission, which handles shifting beautifully.
