Range Rover Santa Barbara joined Land Rover fans world-wide on Tuesday, March 26 to watch the global premiere of the 2014 Range Rover Sport.  The all-new Ranger Rover Sport made its stunning debut in a first-ever live drive through Manhattan, NY on the eve of the 2013 New York Auto Show.  The drive was broadcast around the world via a dedicated microsite so fans worldwide could watch the unveiling of Land Rover’s fastest, most responsive and most agile vehicle to date.

Groundbreaking New York Debut

The 2013 New York Auto show was chosen especially for the debut of the 2014 Range Rover Sport because of the significant fan base there.  More Range Rover Sports are sold in New York than any other metropolitan area in the world.

In addition to the 2014 Range Rover Sport, Land Rover showcased the full 2013 Land Rover line-up at the New York Auto Show.   Although the Range Rover Sport was the star of the show, automotive enthusiasts gathered to view the Range Rover, Range Rover Evoque, Land Rover LR4, and Land Rover LR2 as well.  Of all the models, the Range Rover Sport is the best-selling Land Rover product in North America.

The 2014 Land Rover Range Rover Sport is the latest addition to the new Range Rover line-up.  The 2014 Range Rover Sport is the third model to be introduced in the past two years and follows the premier of the Range Rover Evoque and the all-new 2013 Range Rover.

Meet the 2014 Range Rover Sport

Land Rover Santa Barbara is excited to introduce this exceptional vehicle to California drivers in the coming months.  The 2014 Range Rover Sport is the fastest, most agile, and responsive Land Rover in history.  It features an all-new high strength aluminum structure that provides a significant weight savings of approximately 800lbs over the previous generation Range Rover Sport.  The 2014 Range Rover Sport also delivers exceptional performance with improved fuel efficiency and reduced emissions for a cleaner drive.   For instance, each comes standard with Intelligent Stop/Start technology to help improve fuel efficiency.

Drivers may choose from two engine options including a 3-liter supercharged V6 and 5-liter supercharged V8.  Each one also comes with standard eight-speed automatic transmission by ZF and advanced electronic driver assistance technologies.

The 2014 Range Rover Sport features four separate model trims including the Range Rover Sport SE, Range Rover Sport HSE, Range Rover Sport Supercharged, and the Range Rover Sport Autobiography.  The Range Rover Sport SE and HSE feature a 3-liter supercharged V6 engine capable of 340 horsepower.  The Ranger Rover Sport Supercharged and Autobiography offer even more power thanks to the 5-liter supercharged V8 engine that delivers an incredible 510 horsepower.  Pricing for the Range Rover Sport starts at $63, 495 and increases to $93,295 base price for the Range Rover Autobiography.

John Edwards, Land Rover Global Brand Director, said, “The all-new Range Rover Sport takes the model to another level.  It is Land Rover’s most dynamic vehicle yet and showcases the best of British design, engineering and technological innovation.”
