Back in 2014, the Land Rover Range Rover Sport underwent a healthy redesign, giving it the brand’s new signature appearance. Now, just four model years later, the SUV will receive its first comprehensive refresh, which includes a new look and new technology.
The 2018 Range Rover Sport’s refresh will mostly show up in the front end. Up here, you’ll notice a brand-new grille that’s darker and one piece instead of two and a refreshed front bumper with unobstructed air vents that give it a sportier look.
Inside, you’ll find a new Touch Pro Duo infotainment system, two new high-def 10-inch touchscreens, up to 14 power points for charging all your gadgets, and a gesture sunblind that is opened via a rearward swipe of the hand under the rearview mirror and closed via a forward swipe.
On the utility side of things, the 2018 Range Rover Sport will gain a new Advanced Tow Assist allows the driver to easily guide a trailer into a spot using the rotary knob for the Terrain Response 2 system.
The 5.0-liter supercharged V-8 engine in the HSE and Autobiography models gets a mild tweak to 518 horsepower — an 8-horsepower gain.
The mighty Range Rover Sport SVR also gets a few tweaks. It now uses a 5.0-liter supercharged V-8 powerplant with 575 horsepower, which is a 25-horsepower increase. Rounding out the SVR’s changes is the heavier use of carbon fiber to keep things light.
Other than these changes, all else will remain the same on the 2018 Range Rover Sport, including its pair of 3.0-liter supercharged V-6 engines and the 3.0-liter diesel V-6.
Pricing will start from $66,7850 and top out at $113,600.
