The Range Rover Sport, Land Rover's answer to performance-oriented sport-utility vehicles such as the Porsche Cayenne and BMW X5, will carry a base price of $56,750 including the $665 destination charge for the HSE trim level.
A model with a 390-horsepower, 4.2-liter, supercharged V-8 will have a base price of $69,750 including the destination charge, Land Rover North America says.
The Range Rover Sport, shown publicly at the Detroit auto show last January, goes on sale this summer. It will be the fifth nameplate in Land Rover's lineup.
The Range Rover Sport uses Land Rover's T5 platform, which also underpins the Land Rover LR3 sport-utility and will be the base for future large vehicles from the automaker.
The base engine is a 4.4-liter V-8 that makes 300 hp. Standard equipment includes a navigation system, sunroof, high-intensity discharge headlamps and six-speed automatic transmission.
