Despite bearing the name Sport, previous incarnations of the Range Rover Sport have been anything but quick. If the normal Range Rover is a hippo then the Range Rover Sport was merely a hippo in running shoes. Luckily Range Rover has addressed this with the 2014 Range RoverSport ($64,000-$94,000) by shedding weight and a lot of it too. In fact the new off roader is a full 800lbs lighter, or around four adult men, which is a pretty good bit of engineering considering the car is 2.5-inches longer than the previous model.
The wheelbase has also been increased and now sees a further 7-inches added. Inside Range Rover has added a new seating arrangement where a third row can now be added while there is also a new fully automatic Terrain Response 2 system, and a new single-speed transfer case for the intelligent 4WD system. With 340HP coming from the 3.0 liter supercharge V6 or a bumper 510HP V8 there is plenty of power to put down whether you are on the mountain or on the road.
