The first official pictures have hit and this is what the 2006 Range Rover Sport, powered by a supercharged 390hp 4.2-liter V8, will look like. A normally aspirated V8 will also be available. Click our link for more pictures and information from Autoblog.
Making its debut on the Sport will be Land Rover?s new Dynamic Response suspension system. The system senses cornering forces and works to optimize body control and handling. The system also decouples off-road to allow greater wheel articulation during all-terrain driving, but this doesn?t look like an off-roader to me.
?Range Rover Sport takes us into the growing performance SUV market, but is different from all rivals,? says Matthew Taylor, Managing Director of Land Rover. ?We see it as a less frenetic, more refined alternative to existing performance SUVs. It is ideal for fast, comfortable, long-distance driving and practical enough for everyday use. Yet it is also exceptional off-road, offering better all-terrain ability than any competitor. Like all Land Rover products, it offers the broadest range of capability in its class.?
The Range Rover Sport will be unveiled at the North American International Auto Show in January and will be available for sale in the summer of 2005. Pricing will be announced closer to launch date. This is a story from us, so there is no links to send you to.
