Land Rover Australia has detailed the MY22 Range Rover Sport large SUV ahead of deliveries beginning in July, with a more powerful inline six-cylinder petrol engine option added to the line-up.
Dubbed P400, the 3.0-litre turbocharged unit produces 294kW of power at 5500rpm and 550Nm of toque from 2000-5000rpm. It comes paired with a 48V mild-hybrid (MHEV) system.
The P400 sprints from a standstill to 100km/h in 5.9 seconds, while fuel consumption on the combined-cycle test is up to 8.7L/100km, and claimed carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions are from 236g/km.
Available in the Range Rover Sport’s SE and HSE grades, the P400 is priced from $128,206 and $144,906 plus on-road costs respectively.
Speaking of pricing, carryover variants of the large SUV have become $2021 more expensive, with the line-up now starting from $115,506 and reaching $275,927 (see full pricing table below).
For reference, the sole P300 variant is motivated by a 221kW/400Nm 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine, while the two P400e plug-in hybrid (PHEV) variants add an electric motor to that unit for combined outputs of 297kW/640Nm.
P525 and P575 variants up the ante with a 5.0-litre supercharged V8 petrol engine, which punches out 386kW/625Nm and 423kW/700Nm respectively.
Meanwhile, D250, and D300 and D350 MHEV variants all use a 3.0-litre turbocharged inline six-cylinder diesel engine that makes 183kW/600Nm, 221kW/650Nm and 258kW/700Nm respectively.
All variants of the BMW X5 and Mercedes-Benz GLE rival are mated to an eight-speed torque-converter automatic transmission and a four-wheel-drive system.
