I voted V8 also. Most likely due to that is what I am most comfortable with. If I knew diesel better, I might have gone that way.

I agree with what Speed said. Generally the current 3.5 V6 is plenty of motor for the RL. There are about 10 or 12 days a year I wish for a big beefy truck that can pull stumps from the side of the mountain but the other 97% of the time the RL does everything I truly need. I wish it had a lower gear sometimes.
