2014 Land Rover Range Rover Sport
The Range Rover has always been the “big daddy” of luxury SUVs, offering unparalleled refinement and all-terrain prowess. The slightly smaller Range Rover Sport, though, is no slouch, and has itself been a worthy brand standout. And for 2014 it’s shedding weight big time.
An all-aluminum chassis drops overall weight by more than 900 pounds, enhancing on-road cornering response, while taming off-road body motions.
There’s a new base engine, a 3.0 liter supercharged V6 rated at 340 horsepower, and we think it delivers plenty of power. A 510 horsepower 5.0 liter supercharged V8 is still available, both with an 8-speed automatic.
Interior quality is top notch, and modestly redesigned for the new generation. A 3rd row seating option is new, as well, though it’s a very tight fit.
Off-road capabilities come from permanent four-wheel drive, Land Rover’s latest Terrain Response 2 system, adjustable air suspension, and a new electric power steering.
Available now, the 2014 Land Rover Range Rover Sport begins around $65,000.
