After spending a few hours winding around the mountains of Sedona, Arizona, in a Jaguar XF S, we ditched the mid-size sports sedan for something a little more off-road-ready. Meet the all-new 2016 Range Rover Td6, a luxury SUV as well suited for climbing the rockiest terrain as it is pulling up to the valet of the toniest country club. After exploring the incredible off-road capabilities of the vehicle, we chatted with Peter Wright, Land Rover's Vehicle Engineering Manager. Listen in and learn why a diesel-powered SUV might be just what America needs.
