THE NEW 2023 RANGE ROVER SPORT
Range Rover Sport is one of the best-selling vehicle in its class globally and has been a familiar fixture on UK roads for over 25 years. In order to maintain its position at the top of the class, Land Rover is constantly developing new technologies and features for its vehicles – including new safety systems, infotainment options and autonomous driving capabilities. The next generation of Range Rovers will continue this trend by improving on existing features while also adding new ones. In this article we’ll take a look at what's coming with the new 2023 Range Rover Sport model line-up from design through to performance capabilities, interior features and more!
The new Range Rover Sport is equipped with a 3.0-liter V6 engine that produces 301 horsepower and 302 lb-ft of torque. All models come with an 8-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive. The 4WD can be switched between two modes: Normal or Low, which provides better off-road capability at low speeds.
The wheelbase for this model is 112 inches (13 inches longer than before), allowing for more interior space in both front and back seats as well as a larger cargo area behind them (24 cubic feet).
Powertrain and Performance
The Range Rover Sport offers three engine options: a 3.0-liter supercharged V6, which produces 340 horsepower and 332 pound-feet of torque; a 5.0-liter supercharged V8 that makes 510 horsepower and 502 pound-feet of torque and a 3.5 L turbocharged V6 diesel with 313 hp and 442 lb/ft (also in the R-Dynamic). All engines are paired with ZF's eight-speed automatic transmission, which can be shifted manually using paddle shifters on either side of the steering wheel.
The front grille is substantial, with a new material that's exclusive to this model. The grille also features a larger opening, which helps improve airflow for the engine. The roofline is lower than before and tapers toward the rear in order to give the vehicle a sportier appearance. It's also constructed of carbon fiber composite material to reduce weight and increase fuel efficiency. The side profile has been updated with longer door sills and enhanced sculpting around the wheel arches that also help it stand out on road trips . The interior is also very similar to the new Range Rover Vogue featuring a new steering wheel , infotainment screen and much more.
The new 2023 Range Rover Sport will be available in 2023 and is sure to be a hit with drivers who want a powerful, luxurious SUV that can handle any terrain.
