At launch, all-new Range Rover Sport customers will have a choice of four engines.
The supercharged 5.0-litre 510PS V8, the new supercharged 3.0-litre 340PS V6 and two diesel engines including the 3.0-litre 258PS TDV6 and 292PS SDV6. Land Rover says the powertrain line-up will be expanded later in this year by the addition of a high performance 4.4-litre 339PS SDV8 diesel version. It is also confirmed that a high-efficiency diesel Hybrid model will be available to order later this year for delivery in 2014.
Land Rover’s aggressive weight reduction measures, the company says, opens up the possibility of a smaller, lighter power plant, such as a FOUR cylinder engine. A model which could have an overall weight of less than 2000kg, a reduction of over 500kg from the previous lightest model.
