Facelifted Range Rover Sport gets new V6 Diesel and V8 Petrol units

karcc0 Facelifted Range Rover Sport gets new V6 Diesel and V8 Petrol units
With the presentation of the 2010 Range Rover Sport we complete our coverage on the facelifted Land Rovers that began with the 2010 Range Rover and continued with the 2010 Discovery 4 or LR4. Like its two other siblings, the updated Range Rover Sport that will bow for the first time to the public at the New York Auto Show, benefits from upgrades to the design and under-the-skin enhancements.

Changes to the exterior are more widespread compared to the standard Range Rover and include a redesigned fascia with new LED headlamps, two-bar grille, front bumper and wings while at the rear, the luxury SUV gains new light clusters and a restyled bumper.

The Range Rover Sport’s interior has also been subtly redesigned with Land Rover officials claiming that the facia now has 50 per cent fewer switches thus offering a cleaner look. The higher quality materials and the updated trim options complete the upgrades.

The most significant changes on the 2010 Range Rover Sport are however to its powertrains as the SUV benefits from two new engines, a 3.0-liter twin-turbo diesel producing 245HP and 600Nm of torque and a 5.0-liter supercharged V8 petrol unit with 510HP and 625Nm. Both engines are hooked up to a revised six-speed automatic transmission.

Land Rover has also fiddled around with the Range Rover Sport’s chassis to improve handling. The facelifted model sees the introduction of new systems such as Adaptive Dynamics that works in conjunction with the existing Dynamic Response, and the addition of the more road-focused Dynamic Program to the Terrain Response system.

Due to be revealed alongside the 2010 Range Rover (click here for details and photos) at the New York Auto Show, the Discovery 4 – LR4 for the States- comes with refreshed looks inspired from the more luxurious Range Rover, a more premium-feel cabin and the British firm’s new twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter common rail diesel engine that is mated to a revised ZF HP28 6-speed automatic transmission. The updated Discovery 4 / LR4 is scheduled to go on sale in the UK this September.

On the outside, Land Rover’s designers attempted to smoothen the Discovery 3′s ruged looks by removing most of the dark plastic and restyling the SUVs front fascia which is clearly inspired from the Range Rover. The revised headlamps and tail lights now incorporate LED technology while there are also new 19-inch alloy wheel designs and, for the first time, a new 10-spoke 20-inch wheel is available as a factory option.

Land Rover’s team paid more attention to the Discovery’s interior that has received a serious makeover with a redesigned dash and instrument panel, a new centre console that is now inclined towards the driver, new steering wheel with revised switch layout and new seats. Also new are the 5-inch TFT screens in the instrument cluster displaying key information and a new Portable Audio Interface with MP3 player and i-Pod connectivity.

For the 2010MY, the Discovery benefits from a new 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged diesel engine producing 245HP and a massive 600Nm the torque. Even though it delivers 29 percent more power and 36 percent higher torque than the 2.7-liter V6 diesel which will continue to be offered on the Disco, fuel economy is improved by 9 percent, delivering 30.4mpg UK (9.3 l/100km or 25.3 mpg US) on the EU Combined cycle.

Land Rover has also improved the Disco’s vehicle dynamics on and off-road by tweaking the suspension, adding larger brakes and revising the Terrain Response and Hill Descent Control systems.

These are the first official photographs of the redesigned Range Rover that will be making its premiere along with its facelifted Range Rover Sport sibling and the Discovery / LR3 at the New York International Auto Show. Land Rover’s premium SUV has received mild styling tweaks in and out along with a series of mechanical upgrades that include the addition of a new 5.0-liter supercharged V8 engine.

The design enhancements to the 2010 Range Rover include subtle exterior revisions with changes to the headlights, grille and bumper as well as the new ‘three-stripe’ LED indicators and redesigned three-section fender vents.

The SUV’s interior benefits from new leather trim for the headlining, pillar and door casings while the facia buttons now feature a satin chrome-plated finish. Moreover, the 2010 model features a new dual view touch screen infotainment system plus what Land Rover claims to be the world’s largest configurable 12-in. Thin Film Transistor (TFT) screen which is found in the instrument cluster.

The most important news under the hood concerns the replacement of the 4.2-liter Supercharged V8 with a new 5.0-litre supercharged V8 petrol engine which is the same one used in the Jaguar XFR. It develops an output of 510HP and a peak torque of 625Nm.

Land Rover supports that despite the significant hike in both power (29 percent) and torque (+12 percent), the new supercharged V8 improves fuel consumption by 7.3 percent to 19mpg UK (14.8 lt/100km or 15.6mpg US) on the EU cycle and CO2 emissions by 7.4 percent to 348g/km, compared with its 4.2-litre Supercharged predecessor.

Other improvements for the 2010 Range Rover include the more powerful braking system, the updated Terrain Response and Stability Control systems and the new surround camera system which helps make parking easier.
