The all-new 2014 Range Rover Sport has arrived! The first few boatloads of this hot new luxury truck are unloading as we speak — but demand is still far outstripping supply.
So how does the new RRS look in person? Very nice and modern, thank-you-very-much.
Sidebar: Starting to think I did not win the #IamDriven contest, by the way. These latest photos already appear to be from Carmel, California. Sad panda – worked hard on these entries=]
On second glance, these California-based photos appear to be… cleverly inserted onto the PCH digitally. A glimmer of hope remains!
Even in the standard-engine HSE specification with a price from $64,000, the 3.0-liter supercharged V6 Range Rover Sport is a vastly superior machine to the outgoing model.
The biggest change? While the old RRS rode on Discovery underpinnings, the new model carries its big Range Rover brother’s aluminum chassis design. This creates benefits in every area — especially with a new-for-2014 seven seat configuration.
60-mph is quoted at 6.9 seconds for the V6 models, and down to 5.0-seconds dead for the supercharged, 510-horsepower V8 models from $91,000 and up.
The best of all worlds? Perhaps the (much cheaper) HSE V6 model with some giant KAHN alloys and blacked-out privacy glass all around?
Do not forget to order the body-colored sills and lower panels when ordering to achieve max curb appeal.
Uh oh, tinted windows talk? Keen readers may recall that the first, Daniel Craig-driven 2014 Range Rover Sport’s appearance was leaked by none other than a New York-based tinting shop.
Perhaps time to start adding tints right from the factory, chaps?
Regardless – the exterior is evolutionary but the cockpit is the real all-star of this new generation model. Comfort, luxury and tech all take a huge, three-generation leap in a single bound.
