These engines are paired to an 8-speed ZF transmission and turn the wheels through a permanent 4WD system.

His claims are instigated by comprehensive changes in the chassis. For example, the new Range Rover Sport is about 500kg lighter than its predecessor as its body is made of aluminium.

The platform is lighter than the outgoing version’s by a 39%. The steering system is all-new, to characterize the feedback to be more direct.
