Well, this makes sense. Considering the fact that New York is the single largest market for the Range Rover Sport, it's only fitting that Land Rover has chosen the upcoming New York Auto Show as the venue to debut the all-new 2014 model.

According to Land Rover, the new Range Rover Sport will be unveiled on March 26, the night before the show kicks off. At that time, the new luxury SUV will be driven through Manhattan in what the automaker calls a "groundbreaking live drive." The whole shebang will be broadcast to audiences around the world via the new Range Rover Sport's microsite.

Land Rover says the 2014 Range Rover Sport will be the company's "fastest, most responsive and most agile vehicle to date," and while the teaser image above doesn't give away too much (click above for a larger view), we fully expect the new SUV to incorporate design elements from both the Big Daddy Range Rover and the smaller Evoque crossover.

We'll have the full brace of information ready for you on the 26th, so stay tuned. For now, have a look below to scan Land Rover's offic ial press blast, and head over to the microsite for more information.

      I hate all those headlights looks like ford explorer. They did it in RR now on RRS. LR Have some originally and be a style leader than copy cating whatever is already there!.

      As long as they don't rip off the Ford Explorer again it should look fine. The current Sport still looks good after all these years.

      The sport is going to be the best suv once again. Ppl who think its ugly shouldnt be here LOL. Range rovers have the smoothest ride, in my opinion. Im waiting for the Supercharged S model which is rumoured to be 550+HP(watch out cayenne turbo, jk)

      I always thought there seemed to be a lot of RR sports in NYC, now I know why. I also notice quite a few Evoques as well.
