Land Rover Austin is thrilled to announce a wide array of enhancements for the 2016 Model Year Range Rover Sport, with an emphasis on improved practicality and desirability.
To broaden the horizon of the Land Rover lineup, the 3.0-liter Td6 turbocharged V6 diesel variant will now be available in the U.S. The 254 hp engine will dish out 440 lb-ft of torque and fuel consumption of 24 miles per gallon combined. Stop/start technology is also being introduced on the SDV8 diesel engine.
InControlTM Remote is renamed InControlTM Protect for 2016 and will deliver even greater functionality. InControlTM Protect allows owners to check the fuel level remotely, automatically contact the emergency services in the event of an accident and communicate with Land Rover Assistance.
The new InControlTM Remote Premium service allows owners to lock and unlock the vehicle remotely, reset the alarm and sound the horn and flash the lights to help identify the vehicle in crowded car parks. Land Rover’s rear-view and surround cameras are improved to provide superior clarity.
All Terrain Progress Control is fitted as standard to all 2016 Range Rover Sports featuring Terrain Response 2 technology for advanced off-road capability. New Auto Access Height will also be standard, for improved ease of entry and exit. The system automatically lowers the vehicle to access height when it comes to a halt and a door is opened.
Another cool new feature is the Gesture Tailgate, which provides hands-free operation of the tailgate by waving a foot underneath the rear of the vehicle. Twin-sensors allow customers to trigger tailgate operation from the curb and the system is fully compatible with a tow bar.
Customers will also benefit from an increased range of personalization options and an extended range of accessories. A new Carbon Fiber Pack is available which includes side vents, tailgate trim, door mirror covers, a front grille surround, fog lamp bezels and bonnet vents finished in high-gloss lacquer.
The 2016 model year Range Rover Sport will be available to order from April with first deliveries in late summer. We invite you to come pay us a visit at Land Rover Austin to secure your spot on the list for what is destined to be another remarkable and highly impressive luxury SUV.
