2019 Land Rover Range Rover Sport Hybrid Ready for the US

The 2019 Land Rover Range Rover Sport will maintain its reputation as one of the most versatile SUVs in the world. Well, it is a luxurious model, but it doesn’t spoil its attractiveness. The price it there to do it. However, the crossover is worth every penny. Name it, and one of its version or trim levels will offer. Petrol, diesel and hybrid units, V-6 and V-8 engines, super- and turbochargers, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Well, the 2019 Range Rover Sport will offer only one transmission and AWD only.

The facelift of the 2019 Land Rover Range Rover Sport is not going to include too many changes. Only SVR model will redesign its interior. Hybrid P400e is almost without any modifications. Supercharged powertrains are reliable and potent. We are still waiting for a release date and price info. But, with modest changes in the entire lineup, we believe that the 2019 Range Rover Sport will keep the similar pricing as its predecessor.

The base petrol drivetrain is a 3.0-liter V-6 engine. In Australia and the US, buyers will find even smaller displacements. However, this is the entry-level engine for the US. A supercharged unit has two kinds of setup. For SE and HSE trim levels it will return 340 hp and for higher trims 380 horses. It also returns 330-340 lb-ft of torque and 20 mpg.

Buyers in the US will also get a diesel version of 2019 Land Rover Range Rover Sport. It is a 3.0-liter displacement. However, instead of the supercharger, we find on petrol units, this one will get a support from a turbocharger. Power output can’t match its siblings, but torque level is on par with a 5.0-liter gasoline engine. Also, diesel unit will return much better mileage.
