In the rare chance that you had any doubts whether Land Rover's 2014 Range Rover Sport is the worst kept secret of the 2013 New York Auto Show, here's a new round of images showing the premium SUV from all four corners, and which just surfaced online.
The sportier-looking (and theoretically, –handling) sibling of the Range Rover Mk4, rides on the latter's all-aluminum, bonded and riveted PLA (Premium Lightweight Architecture) platform. The switch to from steel to aluminum construction will help the Range Rover Sport Mk2 shed as much as 300 kg or (661 pounds) over its predecessor.
We expect Land Rover to release details later today during a special event in New York, but the Sport will likely launch with a selection of supercharged V6 and V8 gasoline engines and V6 and V8 turbo diesels.
Visually, the new Sport looks like what you'd expect it to be: a more dynamic version of the Range Rover Mk4 with sleeker proportions, a lowered roofline, more angled front and rear windshields and a shorter rear overhang.
