Little did we know it, but Range Rover must’ve sent its poor Sport model away to fat camp for awhile, because the all-new 2014 Range Rover Sport ($64,000-$94,000) is quite a bit lighter than its predecessor. 800 lbs. lighter, to be exact, which is all the more impressive given that the new model is 2.5-inches longer than the prior model, yet boasts a wheelbase that’s been increased by 7 inches. All this is made possible by a new high-strength aluminum structure, which joins other features like a third-row seating option, a new fully automatic Terrain Response 2 system, a new single-speed transfer case for the intelligent 4WD system, a new 340hp, 3.0L supercharged V6 that joins the 510hp supercharged V8 as an option for linking to the eight-speed ZF transmission, and an aerodynamic body that reduces drag while bringing the Sport’s looks in-line with the Evoque and full-size Rover
