Land Rover gives drivers more off-road capability than ever before with the 2014 Range Rover Sport.SBAlogo5

California drivers who are looking for adventure this year should look no further than the 2014 Range Rover Sport.  Land Rover has pulled out all the stops with this recently-updated model.  It is the fastest, most agile, and responsive Land Rover ever, and promises to handle any adventure you can rustle up!

Improved Performance, Design, and Efficiency

The 2014 Range Rover Sport features an all-new high strength aluminum structure which boasts a weight savings of nearly 725lbs over the previous generation Range Rover Sport.  At Land Rover Santa Barbara, we are impressed with the superbly crafted luxurious interior and the improved agility and performance.

The 2014 Range Rover Sport also features exceptional on-road dynamics and all-terrain performance paired with better fuel economy and reduced emissions.  The model also offers a choice of a 340hop supercharged V6 or a 510hp supercharged V8 engine for dynamic performance.

The Terrain Response® 2 System

At Land Rover Santa Barbara, one of our favorite features of the 2014 Range Rover Sport is the new fully automatic Terrain Response® 2 system.  The Range Rover Sport enhances its status as a premium all-terrain vehicle through the introduction of the next-generation version of Land Rover’s Terrain Response® system.  This system was developed by a team of Land Rover specialists dedicated to bringing progressive engineering updates.  Terrain Response® 2 features an Auto setting that uses sophisticated systems to analyze the driving conditions.  The program will automatically select the most suitable terrain program based on this analysis.  The new system is also capable of switching automatically between the five terrain settings:

  • General
  • Grass/Gravel/Snow
  • Mud/Ruts
  • Sand
  • Rock Crawl

Similar to earlier Terrain Response® systems, each setting works to optimize drivability and traction by adapting the responses of the engine, transmission, differentials, and chassis systems to match the requirements of the terrain.

In addition to the new Land Rover Terrain Response® system, standard innovative driving aids are also included such as:

  • Hill Descent Control (HDC)
  • Gradient Release Control (GRC)
  • Hill Start Assist (HAS)
  • Dynamic Stability Control (DSC)
  • Electronic Traction Control (ETC)
  • Roll Stability Control (RSC)

Additionally, a two-speed transfer case system is available with a low-range for the most demanding off-road conditions.  It features a 50-50 percent default front to rear torque split and offers selectable high and low range with shift on-the-fly capability at speeds up to 37mph.

To learn more about this remarkable luxury SUV, customers should call, email, or stop by Land Rover Santa Barbara.  Our friendly and knowledgeable sales staff will be happy to provide more information about the updated performance, technology, safety, and comfort features of this dynamic off-road luxury vehicle.
