The Range Rover Sport reaffirms its status as the most exciting and dynamic member of the Land Rover range with a comprehensive package of engineering and design changes for the 2010 model year. The vehicle’s stylish new appearance signals the transformation under the skin, which includes two powerful and efficient new engines – the LR-TDV6 diesel and LR-V8 5.0-litre supercharged – enhanced levels of interior craftsmanship and refinement, and significant improvements to both on-road and off-road driving dynamics.

The vehicle retains the acclaimed LR-TDV8 diesel engine and this model also benefits from upgrades to the design and under-the-skin enhancements.A comprehensive programme of chassis system modifications has transformed the Range Rover Sport’s on-road dynamics, while also delivering a substantial improvement in its off-road capabilities.

The introduction of new systems such as Adaptive Dynamics, working in conjunction with the existing Dynamic Response, known as active ride control (ARC) on Supercharged models, and the addition of the road-focused Dynamic Program to the Terrain Response™ system help enhance agility and ride quality. Further improvements to the Terrain Response™ system ensure that off-road capability is kept at the expected class-leading level.

The Range Rover Sport’s stylish, muscular exterior has been updated to provide a cleaner, more sculpted feel. Striking signature LED headlamps combine with a new two-bar grille, front bumpers and wings to create a more sporting and aerodynamic stance. At the rear, new light clusters and a revised bumper design mirror the smoother front end.

The interior has been comprehensively redesigned, using higher quality materials, soft-touch finishes and superior craftsmanship to create a premium environment which is truly worthy of the Range Rover brand.

“The Range Rover Sport has generated a passionate following among customers who require the performance and refinement of a true sports tourer but who value the formidable off-road ability of a Land Rover. Now that we have widened its range of capabilities even further, the following for the Range Rover Sport looks set to grow stronger still,” said Phil Popham, Managing Director, Land Rover.

The 5.0-litre LR-V8 supercharged petrol engine is all-new and designed by the Jaguar Land Rover powertrain team using an impressive collection of state-of-the-art technologies. This engine was developed to deliver a smooth, refined and responsive driver experience, producing an impressive 510 PS and 625 Nm of torque.

Outstanding performance is combined with superior fuel economy and lower CO2 emissions. Compared with the outgoing unit, fuel consumption has been reduced by 6.2 per cent*, with a corresponding reduction in CO2 levels.

“We have given the Range Rover Sport two truly state-of-the-art new powertrains. Each engine – whether petrol or diesel – delivers outstanding performance and refinement, combined with significantly improved fuel economy and CO2 emissions," said Ron Lee, Group Chief Engineer, Powertrains.

The engines were developed in conjunction with Jaguar – the first time engines have been designed from the outset with the requirements of both brands in mind. Shared primary objectives included the highest possible torque and fast response from low revs.

Although the basic architecture of the engines is the same for each brand, some changes were needed for the Land Rover units to satisfy demanding all-terrain requirements. For example, both the diesel and petrol engines feature a deeper sump to accommodate the extreme tilting angles to which the Range Rover Sport may be subjected off-road. In addition, belt drives are waterproofed, as are the alternator, air conditioning compressor, power steering pump and starter motor.
