Land Rover has taken the wraps off the 2015 model year Range Rover and Range Rover Sport which have gone through a series of changes. The most important modification has to do with the SDV8 4.4-liter engine which now develops an additional 40 Nm (29 lb-ft) so it can generate a maximum torque of 546 lb-ft (740 Nm) between 1,700 and 3,300 rpm. The engine is capable of pumping out 339 PS (249 kW) just like before and works together with a revised eight-speed ZF automatic transmission equipped with a different torque converter that has a twin-spring damper.
Land Rover is also offering a fixed panoramic roof with power blind, revised puddle lamps, 19-inch Satin Dark Grey for the Range Rover and 22-inch alloys for the Range Rover long wheelbase. Customers can select from two new paints called Aruba Silver and Kaikoura while the door sills and roof can now be black or body-colored.
Interestingly, the cars can be equipped with an Intelligent Cargo Mode system that moves the front seats forward automatically if these are touched by the rear seats. Once the rear ones are folded flat, the front seats will return automatically as close to their original position as possible.
