Land Rover is well-known for making some of the world's most capable go-anywhere luxury SUVs. That includes the Range Rover Sport, updated at the 2013 New York Auto Show will an all-new design and some new powertrain elements.
Now weighing 800 pounds less than its previous version, the 2014 Range Rover Sport offers quicker acceleration, a new supercharged V-6 base engine, and a fresher design that still retains the classic Land Rover and Range Rover hallmarks.
The new V-6 base engine is rated at 340 horsepower. That's 35 short of the 375-horsepower normally aspirated 5.0-liter V-8 in the outgoing base Range Rover Sport, but it yields quicker acceleration times in the 2014 model thanks to the weight savings.
All-aluminum construction helps save the bulk of the weight, while the latest version of the Terrain Response 2 system helps to enhance traction in multiple conditions.
Inside, you'll find typical Range Rover materials and finish, which is to say, among the best in the industry. The design remains of the familiar rectilinear, straightforward sort, and we're fine with that too--it lends the Range Rover Sport an air of ruggedness that offsets the fine materials.
