2015 Range Rover and Range Rover Sport Get Raft of Improvements, More Power


Read more

Land Rover will now sell you its European market Range Rover and Range Rover Sport with even more capability, courtesy of new electronic systems, tech and more power than before.

Efficiency gains are also touted as is the convenience of the new head-up display (HUD) unit that can now be specified.

Off-road capability, says Land Rover, has been boosted by its new All-Terrain Progress Control system (or ATPC). It “allows the driver to input a desired speed, either from rest or an existing speed, without any pedal inputs once the brake is released. The system continuously monitors and adjusts the vehicle settings to optimise traction and maintain progress in all conditions.”

It apparently “reduces driver workload,” and is “particularly beneficial in challenging off road environments where a very low constant speed is desirable. ATPC works both in forward and reverse gears and is operational from 1mph to 19mph (1.8km/h to 30km/h).”

It’s optionally available on TDV6, SCV6 and V8 Supercharged models that are specced with the dual-range transmission and Terrain Response 2.

Speaking of engines, these now make more power than before. The SDV6 sports a 14 PS gain, bringing the grand total rating to 306 PS or 302 hp. Torque is boosted more, though, by an impressive 100 Nm or 74 lb-ft; efficiency is up seven percent too.

The supercharged 3.0-liter V6, the SCV6, makes no more power than before but is close to two percent more efficient.

The HUD looks and works like any other you’ve seen and used before. It concentrates important information in front of the driver, like the vehicle speed, gear position, shift indicator, cruise control information and sat-nav directions.

Finally, Land Rover says it’s updated the color palette for both models and added a optional panoramic roofs with power blinds to the list of options.
