Land Rover is, as they say, on a roll. The British luxury off-road brand seemingly can't put a wheel wrong, releasing only its fourth all-new Range Rover and its second-generation Range Rover Sport last year, both of which have come in for rave reviews. Before that, it was the Range Rover Evoque, which successfully moved the Range Rover name downmarket and gave a shot in the arm to the brand's styling.

If you're in the market for a rugged and capable off-road SUV, the redesigned 2014 Range Rover Sport is quickly proving itself worthy of a second look. Although it may have gotten lost among the 22 SUVs vying for the Motor Trend SUV of the Year, the Range Rover Sport has followed up its Petersen's 4-Wheel & Off-Road 4x4 of the Year award with a similar honor, having just been named Four Wheeler magazine's Four Wheeler of the Year. The Land Rover beat out the 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee EcoDiese

Each year since 1983, Petersen's 4-Wheel & Off-Road magazine has named its 4x4 of the Year, and while Jeep has been honored with this award a dozen times, Land Rover has now claimed the distinction two out of the last three years.

Land Rover says it has set a new record at Pikes Peak for the quickest hill climb in a production sport-utility vehicle.

In fact, this also sets the new record for the quickest run in any production-standard vehicle, according to Land Rover.

While we knew the starting price of the 2014 Land Rover Range Rover Sport before it was even introduced last week at the New York Auto Show, we're now getting a better idea about how much it will cost to option up Land Rover's middle child. The automaker has launched the configurator for this new SUV, but as of right now, it only provides options for the base SE V6 model.

The New York Post reports actor Daniel Craig pocketed a cool $1 million to appear at a the New York Auto Show on behalf of Land Rover this week, despite staying at the function only briefly. The actor appeared at the Skylight at Moynihan Station on Tuesday, and was shown in a video driving the 2014 Range Rover Sport to the venue before driving onto a stage, live. From there, the actor who plays James Bond walked along a line of photographers and vanished from sight.

Land Rover has substantially updated the appeal of its middle-child Range Rover Sport at this year's New York Auto Show, giving the model a new look, a new powertrain and an optional new third row. Functionality abounds.

The last in line is not nearly the least, as evidenced by the 2014 Range Rover Sport, which is being unveiled to what we're sure will be the delight of New York audiences.
