2015 Range Rover Sport
The new-generation Range Rover Sport, which already established its performance credentials by setting a record for SUVs climbing Pikes Peak (12 min, 35.61 sec.), generates even more excitement for 2015 with the introduction of the ultra-performance Range Rover Sport SVR model. Created by the Jaguar Land Rover Special Vehicle Operations team, the 2015 Range Rover Sport SVR is the highest-performance Land Rover vehicle ever, capable of accelerating from 0-60 mph in 4.5 seconds and achieving an electronically limited top track speed of 162 mph2. The SVO team also specially tuned the ZF® 8HP70 eight-speed automatic transmission and four-wheel drive chassis to give the Range Rover Sport SVR exceptional agility while also preserving all-terrain capability.
Developed alongside the new-generation Range Rover, the Range Rover Sport delivers exceptional on-road dynamics with genuine Land Rover all-terrain capability. The Range Rover Sport presents an assertive and muscular exterior, luxurious interior, and the practical flexibility provided by the option of 5+2 third row seating for occasional use. Pricing starts at $63,5252.
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.
