Since its debut in 2005, Land Rover’s Range Rover Sport has been a great option for those who want a sportier take on the brand’s flagship model. With the second generation in 2013 came a new hybrid engine, which took the SUV’s notoriety to a new level. Gen-2 Sports ended with last year’s 2022 model, but Land Rover has something new up its sleeve.
Kicking off the third generation of its Range Rover Sport series, Land Rover has equipped its 2023 model with a new reductive design language that sports a taut exterior and an uninterrupted tail-light graphic in the back to go along with the longer wheelbase. The inside exudes a similar modernist ethos with sculpted, cockpit-esque cabin seats and a sweeping dashboard with a high-resolution 13-inch touchscreen that floats in the center. Four trim levels will be available, including the mild-hybrid SE and SE Dynamic, the plug-in hybrid Autobiography, and the gas-powered First Edition.
The car’s performance is notable as well, with the V8 twin-turbo First Edition producing 532hp from its 4.4L engine. The mild-hybrid options come with either 355hp or 395hp and a 0 to 60mph acceleration of under 6 seconds. As for the plug-in Autobiography, the engine has 434hp with an electric-only range of 48 miles for those times when you want to lay off the gas.
This all comes with the exciting announcement of an all-electric version of the SUV debuting next year. You can configure your 2023 Range Rover Sport model now on the Land Rover website, with options starting as low as $83,000.
