Spied: 2017 Range Rover Sport SVR Facelift To Get A Power Boost

Joining the regular range of facelifted Range Rover Sport models later this year will be an updated version of the high-performance SVR model.

All that work that went into camouflaging the prototype Range Rover Sport SVR doesn’t seem to be justified by the exterior changes that appear to be limited to the modified front bumper that gains slightly enlarged air intakes, unless, that is, Land Rover plans to make a few more adjustments to the design by the time it arrives in showrooms.

Those bigger intakes are believed to be pushing air towards a more powerful 5.0-liter supercharged V8 engine borrowed from the new Jaguar F-Type SVR, which produces an additional 25hp over the current Range Rover Sport SVR, at 567hp (575PS). It could also get the Jag’s improved 8-speed automatic transmission with faster shift times paired to an all-wheel drive system.

As with the taller Range Rover that’s also set to be updated this year, all Range Rover Sport models will benefit from a few interior tweaks, including a more up-to-date infotainment system.
