2014 Range Rover Sport Launch Party

Once again it was time to visit another launch party and unveiling of an all-new vehicle and this time around it was the 2014 Range Rover Sport at Century (Land Rover Huntsville). Now I know what you are thinking, a launch party for a sport utility vehicle? Trust me this is not your mothers grocery-getter……but it could be, even if she wanted to drive to Mount Kilimanjaro to finish her must-have list.

The guests enjoyed food, drinks, and music as they looked over the features of this incredible all new SUV from Land Rover. What sets this multi passenger vehicle apart from the others is the fact that it offers sports car performance and handling abilities as well as full all-terrain benefits.
Before you get too excited hearing all about the 150 mph runs or the ability to tread almost three feet of water, let me remind you that it is a thing of beauty.

This is one of the few SUV’s that will cause you to look twice when you see it. It’s the most sophisticated off-road capable vehicle I’ve ever seen in my 40 something years. The new Sport is not so boxy looking and offers a smoother/sleeker profile that is even 800 pounds lighter than last year’s model.

(One of the first things you notice if you are already familiar with these upscale SUV’s is that this new model is lower, longer, and wider than previous Sports)

Just because I know you can’t wait any longer let’s talk features; Each one of the trim levels offers full-time 4-wheel drive with electronic traction control, and an 8-speed automatic transmission. The base or SE trim offers a 3.0 liter 340-horsepower supercharged V6 engine and the standard Terrain Response system. If your budget will allow for a few more goodies, then step up to the HSE trim and you are treated to perforated leather/heated seats, sliding panoramic sunroof, fog lamps, 20 inch wheels, and wood trim inside. Now if you are ready to pull out all the stops and just get what you really want, then go for the V8 Supercharged trim and you’ll get a whopping 510-horsepower engine that will propel you from zero to sixty in 5.0 seconds flat! (No…..I’m not kidding).

There is one other top of the line trim that Century had on hand at the unveiling, the Autobiography model, that is fully loaded with every feature you could ever want and more including a cooler in the center console, 825 watt Meridian Premium stereo system, 21 inch wheels and bright red Brembro brake calipers, and an additional performance enhancement package that takes the top speed to 155 mph. (The photo of the black model at the top of this article is the Autobiography Edition)

I almost forgot to mention that if you are not afraid to sling a little mud and have a ton of fun, you might ask about Land Rovers off-road driving school. No matter you skill level or experience, the folks at Land Rover will teach you the essential skills needed to maneuver your Range Rover over and around many off road obstacles as you learn from the pros. Visit landroverusa.com/drivingschools today and find out more details about the Land Rover Experience Driving School. Land Rover has over 65 years of all-terrain experience and they have pulled out all the newest technology to make sure you get unmatched performance on and off-road. It does not matter if you live in the city or out in the country, reward yourself with this strikingly fashioned vehicle that Land Rover has created to be driven……anywhere!

The new 2014 Range Rover Sport went on sale in August and is already a hot ticket, so make plans to visit the showroom this week and decide if this all new Sport utility vehicle from Land Rover is going to be on your Christmas list!

Thanks, Joe
