His parting statement to me really summed up the experience of driving this Chile Red Range Rover Sport. This is a vehicle unlike anything else Land Rover has ever built – and it needs to be. The Sport has been the British marque's best-selling vehicle since it went on sale in 2005 – even in its predecessor's final full year of sales, 2012, it still netted a four-percent bump.

    Most would view a sport-ute like the Range Rover Sport as luxurious enough already, but for those who disagree, Land Rover has debuted a new special edition. Called the Luxury edition, it slots in between the HSE and Autobiography editions. It's distinguished by such special touches as a sun roof, heated steering wheel, contrast-stitched leather trim ...

    As luxury sport-utes go, the Land Rover Range Rover Sport is one heck of a machine.

    Report: Engine shortages holding back Jaguar Land Rover sales

    The turnaround at Jaguar/Land Rover is happening even faster than the company's owner, Tata, had planned. A year ago, JLR posted a net loss of £64 million ($101M U.S.) in Q2; compare that to this year's second quarter and its £233.8 million ($369M U.S.) net profit on 57,135 vehicles sold. While we're sure they aren't complaining, the boost ...

    Conqueror II: Hamann builds second rendition of Range Rover Sport

    There were so many debuts at the Geneva Motor Show this year that a few new cars were bound to slip through the cracks. We happened to miss this custom Range Rover Sport from Hamann, probably because the 670 horsepower Tycoon Evo M was sharing the same stand. Named the Conqueror II, it follows up on Hamann's first take of the Range Rover Sport that ...

    Despite enduring a string of financial hardships, Land Rover still enjoys one of the clearest and most robust brand identities in the automotive kingdom. The English automaker has held the same core values since the company's first off-roader was created by Maurice Wilks in 1948. Wilks reportedly designed the first Land Rover to emulate a Jeep he had ...

    We've known for some time now that Land Rover was planning on getting into the hybrid game, but it appears that things are shaking out a bit differently than we had initially expected. It seems the automaker may not use a kinetic-energy flywheel system or the high-tech Electric Rear Axle Drive that has been in the works for the last few years. digg_url ...

Last year, they pulled the wraps off the Range Rover Autobiography at the British Motor Show, and this week at the LA Auto Show the Range Rover Sport Autobiography has just made ...

    The 2010 Range Rover Sport Supercharged is hugely improved over the old model – and we were fans of the old model. When we drove the normally aspirated model in 2008, we dug it except for the idiosyncratic interior. The 2010 Supercharged model not only features a redesigned cabin, but 517 horsepower and a new set of six-piston brakes up front to be ...

    It's a little difficult to keep track of what's happening at Tata and JLR these days. While the XF sales continue apace and the XJ is promising, the JLR division lost £673.4 million pounds ($1.11B U.S.) last year, and parent company Tata was $520 million in the red at the end of its 2008 fiscal year. Due to those numbers and a so-far unfulfilled ...
