John Deere 6R185 AP: More middle models

The refreshed 6R series gains some new models in the shape of the four-cylinder 6R140, 6R150 and six-pot 6R165 and 6R185. We climbed behind the wheel of the 136kW/185hp model to see what else has changed beyond the numbering

Following in the footsteps of the larger 7, 8 and 9 series, the 6R is now getting a makeover. As part of Deere's latest revamp, the 110 to 250hp range is growing from 10 to 14 models. The 6R140 and 6R150 are the firm's new four-cylinder additions, while the 6R165 and 6R185 units have been added to the six-cylinder shortwheelbase line-up.
