2016 Range Rover SVAutobiography
Land Rover will unveil the Range Rover SVAutobiography at the 2015 New York International Auto Show, adding elevated luxury, design sophistication and performance to the flagship model line.
Exclusively crafted at the Special Vehicle Operations (SVO) Technical Center in the UK, SVAutobiography features unique exterior design enhancements, an exclusive premium leather interior with unique trim finishes and a 550hp 5.0-liter supercharged V8 engine. As a result, the SVAutobiography is the most luxurious and powerful series-production Range Rover in the model’s successful 45-year history.
Replacing the Autobiography Black at the top of the Range Rover line-up, SVAutobiography is available with a powerful 550hp supercharged V8 engine. Shared with the Range Rover Sport SVR, and tuned specifically for the SVAutobiography, this potent engine produces an outstanding 550hp and 502lb. ft. of torque. Despite noticeable increases of 40hp and 41lb. ft. respectively, compared with existing supercharged V8 Range Rover derivatives, efficiency remains unchanged. Pricing starts at $199,4952.

2016 Range Rover Sport HST Limited Edition
The HST enhances the high performance Range Rover Sport driving experience thanks to its upgraded 380hp 3.0-liter supercharged V6 engine, unique chassis settings and bespoke design features.
David Mitchell, Vehicle Program Director Range Rover Sport, said: “The HST extends our Range Rover Sport line-up giving customers even greater choice. Sitting between the existing 340hp Range Rover Sport 3.0-liter supercharged V6 and the 550hp supercharged variant, it delivers enhanced V6 performance to go with the renowned comfort and refinement of the Range Rover Sport.”
The bold new Range Rover Sport HST Limited Edition is identified by its unique exterior design and interior enhancements, which give the luxury SUV a distinctive and dynamic appearance. Full details and pricing for the 2016 Range Rover Sport line-up will be announced late Spring.
2016 Range Rover HSE Td6 and Range Rover Sport HSE Td6
The highly anticipated Range Rover and Range Rover Sport Td6 HSE diesel models are poised to make a splash amongst Land Rover customers. The 3.0-liter Td6 turbocharged V6 diesel engine delivers effortless performance thanks to 254 horsepower and a low-end torque output of 440lb-ft. Peak torque arrives at 1,750rpm in the Td6 while the gasoline V6 produces its 332lb-ft (450 Nm) at 3,500 rpm. This high torque output at low RPM makes the diesel Range Rover and Range Rover Sport models particularly well suited to towing heavy loads and off-roading where reaching maximum torque at low RPM is extremely beneficial.
Similarly, the low-end torque of the Td6 allows the vehicles to deliver 0-60 acceleration times comparable to the higher horsepower V6 gasoline models. The Range Rover Sport Td6 and Range Rover Td6 accelerate from 0-60 mph in 7.1 and 7.4 seconds3 respectively, compared to 6.9 and 7.1 seconds for gasoline V6 models.
The Range Rover HSE Td6 and Range Rover Sport HSE Td6 SUVs will deliver 25 miles per gallon combined, a 32 percent improvement over the supercharged V6, and reach a high of 28 miles per gallon on the highway. Pricing starts at $63,3502 for base model Range Rover Sport gasoline V6 models.
2015 Discovery Sport
The Discovery Sport made its global debut during the 2014 Paris International Auto Show and is now on display inside the Land Rover show stand. A dynamic design with a compact footprint provides seven-passenger seating in a unique “5+2” configuration. The 2015 Discovery Sport delivers a highly refined combination of performance, safety and efficiency thanks to a body shell of high-strength steel and lightweight aluminum, a 240hp turbocharged 2.0-liter engine, nine-speed automatic transmission and standard all-wheel drive. Pricing starts at $37,0702.
2015 Land Rover LR4
Land Rover, which last year re-powered the LR4 with a new supercharged V6 engine and 8-speed automatic transmission, for 2015 has equipped this full-capability luxury SUV with available Land Rover InControl® Apps™ and smartphone integration4. The new system brings the familiarity of compatible smartphone apps into the vehicle, with access from a connected phone through the standard touchscreen. The 2015 LR4 also adds the convenience of new standard side steps, and a choice of two different 4WD systems introduced for 2014 continues in the 2015 LR4. Pricing starts at $50,4002.
2015 Range Rover Evoque
The Range Rover Evoque, which gained advanced new driveline technologies and driver assistance features for 2014, enters 2015 with available Reverse Traffic Detection on vehicles equipped with Blind Spot Monitor, and adding Perpendicular Park to vehicles with Advanced Park Assist3. The compact Range Rover Evoque stays true to the core brand values by providing premium levels of craftsmanship, luxury, performance and multi-terrain capability. Available in five-door and coupe versions, the Range Rover Evoque provides generous interior legroom and headroom, a practical trunk, plus highly capable off-road geometry and ground clearance. Pricing begins at $41,1002 for the five-door Range Rover Evoque and $45,1002 for the Range Rover Evoque Coupe.
