ACCELERATE FROM THE ORDINARY A single look at its dramatically sculpted form can set your mind...and your heart… racing. Imagine how you’ll feel when you fire the ignition, and hear the response of eight cylinders, four camshafts and 32 valves awaiting your command.
Think of the thrill of chasing your shadow down each twist and turn of the long
way home. Or the complete satisfaction of conquering the next sensational storm.
Then imagine how you’ll feel, ensconced in your aluminum-and-leather-clad cockpit, as you ease through traffic, above the fray.
This is a sport utility that defies the norm, accelerating away from the ordinary
with authority. An irresistible combination of power and poise, Range Rover Sport transcends the everyday on a daily basis.

SHEET METAL AS A REFLECTION OF THE SOUL Athletic proportions and a dynamic stance make its intentions instantly
clear. Range Rover Sport is an SUV in name only. Yes, it offers the expected utility of its breed, but the spotlight is definitely on “sport.”
Nothing about the design of the Range Rover Sport is superfluous –
every detail has its purpose. Flared fenders accommodate 19- or even 20inch wheels and tires for exceptional handling, on- or off-road.* Fresh air is supplied to the double-overhead-camshaft V8 via a power vent on the
front fender. And the dramatically tapered roofline, which terminates in a
rear-gate spoiler, helps Range Rover Sport slice through the air more
efficiently. Even standing still, Range Rover Sport seems to be yearning to leap forward.
Form and function. Function and form. In a world where appearance is
often valued above content, Range Rover Sport has the performance to back up its looks, and the looks that clearly signal its purpose.
* 19-inch wheels are standard on HSE. 20-inch wheels are standard on Supercharged and optional on HSE.

ENGINEERED FOR A WORLD OF DRIVING Supercharged or naturally aspirated, Range Rover
Sport engines are marvels of advanced technology.
Constructed from lightweight materials, both engines are fitted with double-overhead camshafts with
Variable Camshaft Phasing (VCP), which can advance or retard the intake valve timing in less than 0.7 seconds. By continuously varying the instant when these valves open and close, this innovative system helps boost mid-range torque and reduce exhaust emissions.
LAND ROVER DUTY
Since they serve as the heart of a Land Rover, both engines – indeed, the entire drivetrain – has been
exhaustively engineered and tested for durability and
longevity under a wide variety of conditions around the world. For instance, to protect against the intrusion
of dust and water, air intakes are located high in the engine compartment. The starter is waterproofed.
The engine lubrication system is designed to work at extreme angles of operation – such as ascending or
descending steep off-road trails. In addition, an extralarge oil sump helps keep the engine cool when idling for extended periods of time, whether on the trail or in gridlocked summer traffic.

READY FOR WHEREVER YOU’RE HEADING Terrain Response™is never “off,” and the General setting is compatible with
all on- and off-road conditions. Terrain Response will automatically react to road conditions and make multiple adjustments to give you precise control. The Grass/Gravel/Snow setting maximizes traction on firm but slippery
surfaces. Wet leaves and grass or hard-packed snow and ice call for this setting.
Choosing the Mud & Ruts mode can make a tremendous difference on
soft, wet ground where some degree of wheelspin is desirable in order to
maintain vehicle momentum. Since Low Range is recommended here, you’ll be prompted to switch the two-speed transfer gearbox when you select this program.
Select Sand for additional control in dry, soft sand or loose dirt. With
significant adjustments to the engine, transmission and traction control programming, the Sand setting can help you power through desert conditions with ease.
Rock Crawl provides additional control in Low Range. It should be used when
you encounter clusters of boulders or other large obstacles where maximum wheel articulation, ground clearance, and low-speed traction are essential.
Imagine having a copilot with all the on- and off-road expertise that Land Rover engineers have amassed over the past 60 years. Terrain Response, developed and patented by Land Rover, distills all that knowledge and places it right at your
fingertips. It continuously monitors and adapts a variety of dynamic systems for maximum traction and control. And, with a twist of the centrally mounted knob, you can activate special programming for a wide range of driving conditions. Note: Terrain Response cannot regulate all the factors that influence vehicle control. Please practice safe driving techniques.
