Land Rover has confirmed it will showcase the upcoming brand new Range Rover Sport at the 2013 New York International Auto Show on 26 March. The reason they chose NYC is because Range Rover Sport sells more units there than in any other metropolitan city in the world. And right now all we have is this blurry teaser photo to work with.
Promises are already being made regarding the car’s capabilities, with Land Rover Global Brand Director Mr John Edwards saying: “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.”
We certainly cannot wait to see it live. Meanwhile we believe it will share most of its engines with big brother Range Rover, as well as Jaguar models. These should include the 3.0-litre supercharged V6 making around 245kW, the 3.0-litre TDV6 worth 190kW (600Nm), as well as a supercharged V8 cooking over 375kW for the real performance enthusiast.
The new 2014 Range Rover Sport should be in Mzansi during the fourth quarter of the year. Pricing and exact models will be confirmed then.
