7 Things Learned From a Week with the 2014 Range Rover Sport V8 Supercharged

The most athletic Range Rover on the roster is all-new for 2014. We spent a bit of time with the Sport in Detroit earlier this year, but we were left wondering how this split-personality SUV would fare on the city streets of Los Angeles and along the twisting canyon roads of the San Gabriel Mountains. Range Rover Sports of the past garnered a reputation that preceded them, for better or for worse depending on who you talk to. But regardless of what context you’re referring to the 2014 V8 Supercharged model in, the fact that it’s got a whole new bag of tricks isn’t up for debate. To go along with our POV test drive through Los Angeles and along Angeles Crest Highway, we’ve put together a list of some of the new SUV’s most notable highlights.

Video: McLaren Pits A Spider Against A Snowboarder

Were we to drive around on a Colorado mountain during the winter, we’d opt for a Range Rover. Or a Toyota Land Cruiser. Or even an Audi Q7. We would not, however, go for a low-slung, 616-horsepower, convertible supercar. Then again, we aren’t Pikes Peak ace Rhys Millen.

Quick Drive: 2012 Land Rover Range Rover Sport Supercharged Limited Edition

As for the Range Rover Sport driving experience, it’s just as good as we remember. Jaguar/Land Rover could slot this 5.0-liter, supercharged V-8 in every vehicle it made, and we’d be happy as clams. Even in this heavy SUV, it is supremely quick. The run to 60 happens fast, but climbing from highway speeds is what’s really impressive. After some harassment by an overzealous Toyota Corolla, we dipped into the skinny pedal and found ourselves clipping along well into the triple digits.

Base Versus Loaded: 2013 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque Five-Door

Until then, though, let’s take a deeper dive into the smallest vehicle to wear the Range Rover badge, the Evoque. The Evoque is available in three different trims: Pure, Prestige, and Dynamic. Pure represents the base (but still amazingly well-equipped) model, while Prestige is the luxury oriented offering and Dynamic has a sportier lean. Both the Prestige and Dynamic are strikingly similar, except for a few very minor areas. Still, the Prestige is slightly more expensive to start (by about $900), while the Dynamic is pricier overall.

Comfort/Involvement Index: 2012 Land Rover Range Rover Supercharged

Involvement Notes: All the on- and off-road prowess of the standard Range Rover, but with a forced-induction punch that makes it feel nicely quick. Despite the overall size, it’s still quite agile. Feedback through the suspension is limited, but a talkative steering rack makes up for that. One of our favorite big SUVs.

Geneva 2012: Land Rover Range Rover Evoque Convertible Concept

Were you to ask us what the most out-of-left-field vehicle at the Geneva Motor Show was, there’s a pretty fair chance we’d say it was the totally unexpected Land Rover Range Rover Evoque Convertible Concept.

Rumors: Spy Shots—2013 Range Rover Spotted

Land Rover’s flagship model, the Range Rover, was recently snapped by Autoblog spy photographers during a winter testing session. Styling for the luxury SUV appears to retain flavors from the current generation, while mixing in slight changes like a gently sloping roofline. Underneath the skin, it will reportedly utilize the same chassis as the Jaguar XJ. Several of the spy shots catch a glimpse of the test car’s interior and, at least for now, it doesn’t appear that major changes have been made.

Driven: 2012 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque Coupe

The Range Rover Evoque arrives on the scene just as beholden to the less-than-ideal real world as its premium CUV competitors, then, but also with much more of a mandate to (self-imposed, to a large extent) to have go-anywhere ability. This is, after all, a Land Rover. The British company may have just a precious few total models spread out over its roughly 60-year history, but none, as yet, has been anything less than a bulldog off-road. That’s an imposing history for a crossover to live up to, let alone one as sleek and (sometimes) two-doored as the slinky Evoque Coupe.

Quick Drive: 2011 Land Rover Range Rover HSE

The biggest non-reliability-focused issue with the Range Rover, as ever, is that its much-less-expensive stable mate is every bit as good to drive, and more useable to boot. After taking it on a long road trip last year, and testing it verus other, posh three-row SUVs just a few months ago, I can’t really find a lot of rationale for buy the Range over the LR4.

List: What Car Would You Buy With $100,000?

Here’s a party game to try out with all of your car-loving friends and family members over the upcoming holiday season. The scenario is this: someone hands you $100,000 in a suitcase and tells you to buy a car. You can only buy one vehicle with the money, and you don’t get to keep the change when you’re done.

Quick Drive: 2011 Land Rover Range Rover Supercharged

The Range Rover is a brilliant car that makes no sense. Since the world would be a more threadbare place without cars (and art and architecture and really anything “inefficient” but humanely attractive), let’s dispense with the reasons you could get the raw functionality of this vehicle for vastly less money and concentrate on what it does that is special.
