Range Rover Sport 2013 Review

The Range Rover Sport 2013 has been recently revealed, boasting a few minor upgrades, but when compared with the previous model not much has changed. After all, the Range Rover Sport is successful as it is and the only changes brought forth are only meant to keep it fresh. Why fix what isn't broken?

Under its hood the US version of the Range Rover Sport 2013 comes with two engine variants, the 5.0 liter V8 developing 375 horsepower and 375 lb-ft of torque, and a beefed up version of the same V8 engine rated at 510 horsepower and 461 lb-ft of torque.

The European version will come with a choice between two diesel engines rated at 208 and 252 horsepower respectively. In terms of transmission, the V8 gas engines will be mated with a ZF six-speed automatic transmission, whereas the European diesel engines will be coupled with a ZF eight-speed automatic gearbox.

The 2013 model comes with a choice of five colors including Barolo, Barossa, Causeway, Havana and Mariana, the Supercharged models will get red Brembo brake calipers and a new set of 5-spoke allow wheels as standard, whereas the Sport variant will come with black painted calipers as an optional extra.

On the interior the new model comes with a Harmon Kardon audio system and the usual 7 inch dual-view infotainment system.

We've mentioned before something about the "Supercharged" model so we should shed some light on the matter. Alongside the standard variant, the 2013 Range Rover will also come with two limited edition trim levels, including the Supercharged and the GT Limited Edition.

The Supercharged variant received additional red accents to match the red Brembo calipers and a red "Sport" badge at the back, while on the interior it offers red logos and carbon fiber elements instead of wood inserts.

Only 500 Supercharged Limited Edition units will be built, 300 of which will be painted in Santorini Black and 200 in Fuji White.

The Range Rover Sport GT Limited Edition offers a new set of 20-inch five-spoke black painted wheels, a roof spoiler and a modified exhaust on the exterior, whereas the interior receives a steering wheel with paddle shifters and a LOGIC77 audio system. Unlike theSupercharged edition, 750 GT models will be built in total, with 450 units painted in Santorini Black and 300 units in Fuki White.

No information has been revealed regarding the price of the new models, but the Sport variant should have a starting price of roughly $80,000, and as usual it will have to compete against its key competitors: the BMW X5, Audi Q7 and the Infiniti FX50.
