with a Land Rover, you know you will have the muscle to tackle nearly all sort of off-road situations, but if more is what you are after, then look no further than the 2014 Range Rover Sport. shedding some 420 kilograms from its heft over its predecessor, this sport version is touted as the fastest, most agile and response Land Rover to date and seats somewhere between the larger Range Rover and the smaller Evoque. befitting its sport namesake is a matching sporty look that should be right up the alley of those who thought the Evoque’s aesthetic is little way too avant-garde. personally, i like how the new Range Rover Sport looks: it looks pretty much like the Range Rover that we are used to and yet, still packs the sporty look to match its 340 hp 3.0-liter supercharged V6, or the 510 hp 5.0-liter supercharged V8 powertrain offered. whichever power option you chose, it all comes fitted with a ZF eight-speed gearbox with power being passed through either a single-speed Torsen differential, or the optional two-speed transfer case with low range. we shan’t dwell into the details of its look which are pretty much self-explanatory just by scrutinizing the images in the gallery below. other highlights include a longer body along with a significantly longer wheelbase for a roomier cabin, a more steeply raked windshield, increased maximum ground clearance, upgraded air suspension system that automatically switches between two ride heights, option of 19- through to 22-inch wheels, next-generation Terrain Response 2 system, all new electric power steering, an aluminum construction (hence the weight saving), and a well-appointed, sporty interior. prices expected to start from $63,495 and runs up to as much as $93,295 when it rolls into the US dealerships. no word on the rest of the world though.
