2017 Range Rover Sport Arrives In The US Priced From $65,650

The North American market won’t be getting the new Ingenium diesel engine installed into the Range Rover Sport overseas. But it will get the other enhancements applied for the 2017 model year.

Among those enhancements are an array of new driver assistance technologies. Those include the new Advanced Tow Assist that helps in reversing the vehicle with a trailer attached, an upgraded Blind Spot Assist that improves visibility around the vehicle, and an Intelligent Speed Limiter that reads roadside signage to keep the vehicle under the speed limit while under cruise control.

Off-road capability is also enhanced thanks to the inclusion of a new Low Traction Launch system and a new All-Terrain Info Center. The latter displays all manner of off-road conditions through the new 10.2-inch dashboard display that, along with the new InControl Touch Pro infotainment system, comes as a welcome improvement over the old 8-inch system and its less-than-intuitive interface.

There’s an array of new colors on offer and a streamlined selection of options packages as well. Most of these features were introduced on the flagship Range Rover as well along with the new 550-horsepower SVAutobiography that carries the same engine as the RR Sport SVR.

Neither the new 2.0-liter Ingenium diesel being offered elsewhere, the hybrid version thereof, nor the larger 4.4-liter diesel V8 are not coming to North America at this point. However the middle 3.0-liter six-cylinder diesel is still available to American customers, alongside the supercharged gasoline V6 and V8 engines.

The 2017 Range Rover Sport will arrive at US dealers later this year with a starting price of $65,650 (plus a $995 destination charge). That represents a negligible $700 increase over the 2016 model – well worth it, we’d say, for the improved infotainment system alone.
