Land Rover Range Rover Sport HST Addresses The Supercharged V6’s Big Issue

We like the standard Land Rover Range Rover Sport an awful lot. But it’s not without its issues. Chief among them is the 3.0-liter, supercharged V6, which with 340 horsepower lacks the outright punch of the old V8 model.

The limited-edition Land Rover model addresses that complaint, though, adding an extra 40 horsepower and as we said in our original post, eclipsing even the old, naturally aspirated 5.0-liter V8. Combined with the lighter, aluminum construction of this latest generation of Sport, it’s safe to say that the HST should hit a real sweet spot between the base 340-hp model and the (frankly unnecessary) 510-horsepower Supercharged trim.

You can read more about the Range Rover Sport HST, including details about its aesthetic changes, in our original post. But before you do that, we’ve got a full crop of images of the new car, direct from the 2015 New York Auto Show.
