While the bits we've glimpsed so far--and our spy shots--indicate the Range Rover Sport won't venture too far from its previous look, it will get an immediately recognizable new design. Borrowing some of its details and proportions from the new Range Rover, the Sport takes it an angular, more compact direction.
An aluminum chassis and body, also similar to the Range Rover's, will help keep the rather large vehicle's weight down, while a range of V-8 engines, both normally aspirated and supercharged, will range from 375 horsepower to 510 horsepower for performance ranging from brisk to slightly mental.
A supercharged V-6, recently launched in the standard Range Rover, could also join the party--or replace the base V-8. At 340 horsepower, it should still be quick, but it will also likely be a touch more efficient.
We'll be on hand live at the pre-show unveiling of the 2014 Land Rover Range Rover Sport, so stay tuned for all of the details early next week.
