Big Apple Debut Planned For New Range Rover Sport

By Brandon Turkus

March 11, 2013

Land Rover’s new, fourth-generation Range Rover was a huge leap over the third-generation SUV. Therefore, it’s logical to assume that the Range Rover Sport will be a similarly big update. We’ll find out for certain in just a few weeks, as Land Rover has announced that the new Range Rover Sport is coming to the 2013 New York International Auto Show.
It’s difficult to know what to expect when it comes to the Range Rover Sport. The current model has more in common with the LR4 than it does with any Range Rover. Could this new model actually be based on the all-new Range Rover? Or could it be the debut of the platform that will also underpin the new LR4 (or, LR5, we guess)?
We’ll get our answers on March 26 in New York.
