Range Rover Sport and Evoque to Get RS Treatment

Report

Both the Range Rover Sport and Evoque are being given extra doses of horsepower.

Things are going well over at Jaguar Land Rover. So well in fact that Jaguar’s high-performance "RS" badge will soon be applied to both the Range Rover Sport and Evoque. Despite the recent production green light for the Evoque convertible, Land Rover now wants to add more testosterone to its hot-selling SUV. The Range Rover Sport, already a mighty powerful vehicle, was spotted testing back in April with a revised front fascia and large side intakes.

This indicated that a more powerful version was in the works, but nothing could be verified at the time. Today is different because sources have indicated that the supercharged V8 in the RRS will be boosted from 510 horsepower to "at least" 542 hp. Meanwhile, the 2.0-liter EcoBoost in the Evoque will be increased to 300 ponies. Performance wise, Land Rover wants the RRS RS to go from 0-62 mph in just 4.5 seconds. Expect to see the Evoque RS arrive first, possibly even later this year. The Range Rover Sport RS is due to arrive sometime next year.
