2014 Range Rover Sport Spied Before Debut

Automobile Staff

Land Rover fans who were hotly anticipating the reveal of the 2014 Range Rover Sport at the New York auto show later this month don't have to wait any longer. Here is the Evoque-inspired 2014 Range Rover Sport, caught sans camouflage before its debut.

We were tipped off by a friend of Automobile Magazine, and while the exact source of the photos is still a bit sketchy, this is clearly the new Range Rover Sport. The SUV's design matches up perfectly with what's we've been able to see from past spy shots, and the color of the car pictured here even matches the teaser photo Land Rover released earlier this week. Unsurprisingly, the Sport's design borrows heavily from the Evoque and the Range Rover. Details we didn't know about before include revamped, sportier-looking side vents, large hood vents, and chrome dual exhaust that poke out from under the rear skid plate. The taillights manage to evolve the outgoing Range Rover Sport's lamps, while molding them into more Evoque-like shapes. Blacked-out pillars and roof and tinted headlight lenses will probably be optional, but give the Sport a menacing look. This specific car has deeply tinted windows, so there's no telling what the interior is like, but we'd guess that it'll have the same clean design as the Range Rover.

Expect the engine range to mirror that of the bigger Range Rover: the base engine will be a supercharged 3.0-liter V-6, while upmarket models will get a supercharged 5.0-liter V-8. There's little doubt that the Range Rover Sport won't use the eight-speed automatic from the Range Rover, but Land Rover did just debut a nine-speed for the Evoque, so it's anyone's guess at this point.

Stay tuned for the full information on the 2014 Range Rover Sport once it makes its debut at the New York auto show in two weeks.

Just leaked? Like oil, or coolant from overheating? If Range Rover is still as bad as their reputation, the new wears off fast when the very extensive list of repairs, maintenance, and grief hits. Wouldn't go there at all. Give me a new Jeep Grand Cherokee or a new Ford Explorer. All you get with a Range Rover is a lot of hype and a very over-priced vehicle.
