All-New Range Rover Sport Goes On Sale In 3rd Quarter

The all-new Range Rover Sport is almost 2.5 inches longer than its predecessor and about 6 inches shorter than its Range Rover sibling and will have a choice of a 510 horsepower 5.0-liter supercharged V8, a new 340 horsepower 3.0-liter supercharged V6, a 258 horsepower 3.0-liter turbo-diesel V6 and a 292 horsepower diesel SDV6. Later this year a high performance 339 horsepower 4.4-liter SDV8 diesel version is coming and a diesel Hybrid model will be available to order later this year for delivery in 2014. A choice of two full-time 4WD systems will be offered. One system provides a two-speed transfer case with low-range option, for the most demanding off-road conditions with a front-rear 50/50 percent default torque split, and 100 percent locking capability. The all-new Range Rover Sport goes on sale during the third quarter of this year.
