If you have heard about the so-called 2018 Range Rover Sport updates, don’t get too confused if you are mixed up with other variants. Yes, having so many different names and types, especially if they are all good and promising can confuse everyone, including you. So, what should you know about this line, anyway?
First of all, be sure to really know the differences of each type and variant of the Range Rover. If you are familiar with the Evoque, that’s a good start. After Evoque, the higher variant is the Velar (the newest production, released for the 2018 model), and next is the Sport, which has been around for 8 years, give or take.
Well, the company is said to work on the updates for the new Sport and the vehicle has been spotted with the prototype with heavy camouflage. Well, it’s a good thing that Range Rover is planning on the updates, considering that the last ones happened in 2014. If you take a good look on the new 2018 Range Rover Sport, you will see some refreshing updates, including some of the aspects of the exterior design.
The new Sport’s prototype may be coming with a heavy cover but you can see some of the appealing lines and minor changes, happening on the redesigned air intake and improved support area for the license plate. Expect the grille surround to be different and also the lights with the revised internals.
Rumor has it that the changes are only happening on the SUV line, launched earlier than the Sport, but be sure that the high performance 2018 Range Rover Sport SVR will also come with refreshed details and updates.
Although the exterior area will be coming with some minor updates, the powertrain will remain the same as the company seems to be confident and satisfied enough with their options. For the Sport sold in American market, the option would be V6 supercharged 3.0 liter engine with 340 hp of power. Another option is the V6 diesel turbocharged 3.0 liter engine delivering 254 hp of power, the V8 supercharged 5.0 liter engine delivering 510 hp of power, and the V8 supercharged 5.0 liter with 550 hp of power.
With these options alone, the company seems sure that the performance and output won’t be disappointing for the new 2018 Range Rover Sport.
