The third-generation 2021 Land Rover Range Rover Sport is refreshed and its release is just around the corner. Moreover, according to this famous British carmaker, the new model is the first one of three SUVs that will be redesigned for this year. The carmaker is also working simultaneously on the new Evoque and Defender. There will be numerous updates, and all three models will bring more novelty.
From the latest news, the Land Rover is mostly focusing on the design and development of the new 2021 Range Rover Sport. This model is one of the most important SUV from this automaker. Basically, the current Range Rover Sport generates enormous profits, and because of that, it`s the main reason to get all the attention.
2021 Land Rover Range Rover Sport Platform
Compared to the current model, the approaching 2021 Range Rover Sport luxury SUV will use the new MLA platform. Thanks to that, the upcoming model will benefit from improved handling and better storage. With storage, we meant that this platform is ideal to hosts mild-hybrid, plug-in hybrid, and pure-electric systems.
The design of the newest 2021 Range Rover Sport will be refreshed and it will keep the same shape and dimension. So, we cannot expect dramatic redesign as the second-generation model has if we compared it to the original model. Radical changes are too risky for such a profitable model.
Like the previous model, the forthcoming 2021 Land Rover Range Rover Sport will be modern and techy. Also, we must mention that the inside dimension is the same as in the full-size Range Rover model. Both SUVs share the same 115-inch wheelbase. Thanks to that, the Range Rover Sport has more rear-seat space than most of its competitors. Moreover, the third-row seat is only kids friendly. Behind the Range Rover Sport’s second row there are a generous 28 cubic feet of cargo space and this can be expended to 59.0 cubic folding rear benches.
The new model will host the same standard features as the current one. This model comes with numerous features that include climate and infotainment systems that are controlled by two large 10.0-inch touchscreens, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration, 12.3-inch screen that shows a fully configurable digital gauge cluster and so on.
The mighty 2021 Land Rover Range Rover Sport will be available with numerous engine options. The first engine is a 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-4. This engine powers the P400e model. This unit delivers 398 horsepower and 472 lb-ft of torque thanks to the 85-kWh electric motor that gives 114 horsepower.
Like before, the same 3.0-liter turbocharged diesel powers models (SE, HSE). This potent engine delivers 254 horsepower and 440 lb-ft of torque. On top of that, two 3.0-liter supercharged V6 are available as well. These models will range 340 horsepower and 380 horsepower. However, the next two supercharged V8 are the most stronger. Under the hood of the Supercharged, Autobiography is a 5.0-liter V8 that cranks out 518 horsepower and 461 lb-ft of torque.
Moreover, if you need something stronger, there is an SVT version that besides the potent engine, gives a visual boost over rest trims. This version uses the same 5.0-liter supercharged V8 as the predecessor. However, the manufacturer will boost its output to 575 horsepower and 502 lb-ft of torque. All of the engines will use an excellent 8-speed automatic transmission and 4-wheel drive as standard.
2021 Land Rover Range Rover Sport Cost and Release Date
The new 2021 Land Rover Range Rover Sport will be available to purchase later this year. The famous British SUV will be redesigned and we can expect a slightly higher price.
The base model will cost around $70,000, while the SVR variant can pass $120,000. Thanks to the variable engine options and attractive design, the new model will rival models such as BMW X5, Porsche Cayenne, and Audi Q8.
