New Range Rover Sport: Farmers Fitness

Following the introduction of a new Range Rover by Land Rover, the launch of the third generation Range Rover Sport is now announced at the end of 2022. The order books are already open, things start at as much as 93,000 euros. The renewal of the Sport was delayed as the model had been on the market for nine years. The sport made its debut in 2005.

17 years later follows the third generation with a comprehensive range of engines. The top model is powered by a 4.4-liter V8 twin-turbo petrol engine with 510 hp, plus there is a six-cylinder petrol engine, three diesel engines also with six pots and three liters and a rechargeable plug-in hybrid, in which a 2.0 -litre four-cylinder petrol engine is married to an electric motor. Two power levels are available here, 510 or 440 hp. The drive battery is unusually large. 38.2 kWh ensures an electric range of 113 kilometers according to the standard. The internal combustion engines are all mild hybrids, the model designations P400, D250, D300 and D350 are based on the engine power.

From the outside, the new one looks smooth, it follows the design specifications for the Range Rover, everything looks sleek and sleek, the door handles close in flight. Nothing changes in the 4.90 meter format. The interior, which now comes with a modern 13.1-inch touchscreen and a 13.7-inch instrument screen, has been significantly cleared out. All of today’s common electronic aids are on board, and if they are not, they can be reloaded via Sota (Software over the Air).

There is also something tangible to report. Four-wheel drive is a matter of course, eight-speed automatic as well, four-wheel steering is new. As before, there are different equipment versions, they are now called S, SE, Dynamic HSE and Autobiography. A first edition will also be offered in the first year. In 2024, the Range Rover and Sport will come as completely electric versions.

Both are produced in Solihull near Birmingham, in the brick buildings that have hardly changed from the outside, where Land Rover’s wonderful journey began in 1948. A car for the farmer today became a brand with seven models.
