Recognizing that few people use the Range Rover for off-roading, Land Rover offers the Range Rover Sport. The Sport dispenses with any pretension of off-road capability with a lowered chassis and performance tires. A sleeker profile with a subtle rear sloping roofline signifies that this Range Rover is intended for the road and not the trails. The new supercharged V-8 with dual exhausts ensures performance to back up the aggressive looks. The Range Rover sport competes with other performance oriented models like the Cayenne Turbo and Infiniti FX.
The second generation Range Rover Sport arrives as a 2014 model. The new model is about 7 inches longer in wheelbase, and about 2 inches longer overall. A new 3.0l supercharged V6 is now equipped on some models, whereas the old supercharged 5.0l V8 is still available on the top models.
