Land Rover introduced the next-generation 2023 Range Rover Sport yesterday.
The presentation of the third-gen Range Rover Sport took place in the form of an exclusive launch event at Jaguar Land Rover’s Advanced Product Creation Centre in Gaydon, Great Britain.
Official James Bond stunt driver Jessica Hawkins was behind the wheel of the new model to demonstrate its dynamic capability, performance, grip, and traction.
Land Rover’s flexible Modular Longitudinal Architecture (MLA-Flex) underpins the new Range Rover Sport.
A new Stormer Handling Pack is available for the model. It provides the ultimate combination of chassis technologies including Dynamic Response Pro (a 48-volt electronic active roll control), all-wheel steering, electronic active differential with torque vectoring by braking, and configurable programs.
For the first time, the Range Rover Sport got a Dynamic Air Suspension with switchable volume air springs, as well twin-valve active dampers.
As for the powertrain choices, the 2023 Range Rover Sport offers two 6-cylinder 48-volt mild-hybrid Ingenium engines, gasoline and diesel ones; a new 530-HP twin-turbo V8 that provides acceleration from 0 to 60 mph in 4.3 sec. with Dynamic Launch; two plug-in hybrid variants (6-cylinder extended range Electric Hybrid with 510 HP).
Their electric-only range is up to 70 miles (113 km), and CO2 emissions are at the level of 18g/km. A pure electric version will be added in 2024.
The cabin is up-to-date and high-tech. It highlights a 13.1-inch floating Pivi Pro haptic touchscreen complemented by a 13.7-inch Interactive Driver Display and Amazon Alexa Voice for an intuitive digital experience.
Also, the interior features a Cabin Air Purification Pro system to create and maintain an optimal interior environment. An innovative Meridian Signature Sound System is available for the performance SUV with up to 29 speakers and an Active Noise Cancellation function.
The new Range Rover Sport can be ordered now. The company will exclusively produce it at the Solihull Manufacturing Facility in the UK, alongside the regular Range Rover.
