2014 Range Rover Sport Gets a Makeover!
What can be better than a SUV that no one can seem to dislike, no matter what? Yes, the same darling SUV being renovated into an even better and mightier one! Same is the case with the already amazing Land Rover Range Rover Sport. The new 2014 Land Rover Range Rover Sport is all set to get a makeover, which will surely help it maintain the great prestige and position that it flaunts of in the SUV world. Now one thing that we would like to mention is that when we say that the SUV is being renovated, we mean that it is being changed to quite a great extent! What else would the incorporation of a power operated third row of seats mean?
Yes, you read it right! Among the changes being made to the Range Rover Sport, our favourite one is the third row of seats that is being added to the cabin. In case you might ever need to travel with a larger number of passengers than you thought you will be travelling with, this feature will be best friend. The power operated third row is perfect for such cases! Now the question that arises is that will the engine be able to provide enough thrust for the added number of passengers? Well, wait till we tell you how powerful of an engine does the beast boast of!
Land Rover apparently plans of heading to insane levels of power and acceleration. Why? Well, the 2014 Range Rover Sport will be available with two different kinds of engines. The lower model will come with a 3000cc supercharged V6 engine, which will be able of delivering a power of 340 horsepower. And if this isn’t insane enough for you, then Land Rover has a crazy 5000cc supercharged V8 engine in stock for you! A 5000cc V8 engine. Supercharged! This mighty machine will deliver 510 horsepower, and is capable of possibly launching the vehicle into space. Now, both of the engines are paired with a ZF eight-speed transmission. Either a single-speed Torsen differential or an optional two-speed transfer case with low range will be incorporated to send the power to the roads. Also, the Terrain Response 2 system that the SUV boasts of enhances the off road riding experience by many folds!
Another important thing to note is that the new 2014 Range Rover Sport will weigh 800 pounds lesser! The extensive usage of aluminium in the new model has helped chopping the weight down significantly. Also, in order to make it faster and agiler, Land Rover has incorporated a sleeker widescreen front glass, which makes the vehicle more aerodynamic. Another significant change that you will find in the new Range Rover is the larger wheelbase. Land Rover has added an extra seven inches to the SUV’s wheelbase. Coming to the interiors, you will find a subtler and more responsive yet smaller and thicker steering wheel. You will also find comfortable and heavily padded seats, accompanied by a much larger interior space. The luxurious features that the SUV will feature will make it an absolute delight to travel in!
