Perhaps trying to keep things interesting, Land Rover just announced a new version of its popular Range Rover Sport for the U.S. market.

Some exterior changes that will help you spot this special version include flush-mounted bumpers, a different roof spoiler, body-colored lower cladding, a new rear exhaust "treatment," and some spiffy-looking 20-inch Stormer wheels.

Interior changes include a Luxury Interior Package comprising the cold climate option, adaptive front lighting, premium leather seats, hand-polished oak wooden trim and a center console cooler box. Unique carpet mats, a rear seat A/V system, and adaptive cruise control are also included. The LE uses the supercharged 4.2-liter V8 engine, permanent 4WD, and Land Rover's Terrain Response system to uphold the company's reputation for on- and off-road prowess. If you can find a dealer that has one available, expect pricing to be around $81,450.
