Press Release

The Range Rover Sport reaffirms its status as the most exciting and dynamic member of the Land Rover range with a comprehensive package of engineering and design changes for the 2010 model year. The vehicle’s stylish new appearance signals the transformation under the skin, which includes three powerful and efficient new engines, enhanced levels of interior craftsmanship and refinement, and significant improvements to both on-road and off-road driving dynamics.


Overview:


Three all new engines, a 3.0 liter twin turbo diesel, 5.0 liter V8 petrol and a high performance supercharged petrol - all providing greater performance with improved fuel economy and reduced emissions.

Acclaimed 3.6 liter TDV8 engine continues to be available

Striking exterior design changes create a more stylish and sporting look

Redesigned interior bringing new levels of refinement and craftsmanship

Chassis refinements including Active Damping, new brakes and updates to the Terrain Response?? system, bringing even greater breadth of capability

Terrain Response?? ‘Dynamic’ program setting, designed for sporting on-road driving

Cutting edge technologies including surround camera system with tow assist, and high beam assist

e-TERRAIN TECHNOLOGIES boost economy and lower CO2 emissions



“The Range Rover Sport’s performance, ride and handling have been transformed with the introduction of new engines, transmission and chassis systems. Combine these enhancements with the contemporary style and luxury of the revised interior, and it’s clear that the Range Rover Sport remains the only choice as the quintessential SUV sports tourer,” says Phil Popham, Land Rover Managing Director.


A comprehensive program of chassis system modifications has transformed the Range Rover Sport’s on-road dynamics, while also delivering a substantial improvement in its all-terrain capabilities.


The introduction of new systems such as Adaptive Dynamics and the addition of the road-focused Dynamic program to the Terrain Response?? system help enhance agility and ride quality. Further improvements to the Terrain Response?? system ensure that off-road capability is kept at the expected class-leading level.


“The Range Rover Sport has generated a passionate following among customers who require the performance and refinement of a true sports tourer, but who value the formidable off-road ability of a Land Rover. Now that we have widened its range of capabilities even further, the following for the Range Rover Sport looks set to grow stronger,” says Phil Popham.


Under the banner of e_TERRAIN TECHNOLOGIES, Land Rover is implementing a range of measures to reduce fuel consumption and CO2 emissions, without compromising Range Rover Sport’s renowned dynamic driving characteristics and all-terrain capabilities.


The new Range Rover Sport is packed with features aimed at reducing fuel consumption and reducing CO2 emissions. Both the new 3.0 liter twin turbo diesel and direct injection petrol engines were designed from the outset to deliver class-leading fuel economy and improved low-end torque.



e-TERRAIN TECHNOLOGIES in summary:


Engine calibration optimised

Lower engine idle speed

Reduced torque-converter slip

Higher torque, allowing longer gearing

Intelligent Power System Management (IPSM) including smart regenerative charging

Clutched air conditioning pump to reduce parasitic losses (Diesel only)

Improved aerodynamics


“The new petrol V8 engine is ideally suited to the sporting character of the Range Rover Sport, providing generous low-end torque and spirited performance. What’s more significant though, is that it is also incredibly clean, achieving impressive reductions in fuel consumption and CO2 emissions in real world conditions,” says Phil Hodgkinson, product development director.


The new 2010 Range Rover Sport will go on sale in Australian late 4th quarter 2009, with pricing, specification and model line up, still to be confirmed.
