Updated 2015 Range Rover and Range Rover Sport revealed with more torque and new tech

Land Rover has unveiled details on the 2015 model year Range Rover and Range Rover Sport.

The biggest news is the uprated SDV8 with additional 40Nm and enhanced eight-speed transmissions with revised torque converter featuring a twin-spring damper. The 4.4-litre SDV8 continues to produce 339 PS (334bhp), but the torque is up at 740Nm between 1,700 rpm and 3,300 rpm.

There are also new personalisation options, like new exterior colours, alloy wheels, fixed panoramic roofs with power blinds and interior colourways.

From next month, the Range Rover Autobiography Black Long Wheel Base is also available to order, for customers’ who desire more choice and exclusivity.

With the Executive Class package, you get two individual fully adjustable seats and a re-designed extended centre console with electrically deployable leather tables, integrated USB charging sockets, enhanced stowage and bespoke lighting.

Standard with the new model year are also Land Rover InControl Remote and InControl Secure, with the first one featuring an integrated SOS Emergency Call, Optimised Land Rover Assistance and a Smartphone App, enabling you to connect remotely with your vehicle wherever you are. InControl Secure tracks the vehicle should it be stolen.

There is no word about updates to other engines, so we assume the diesel hybrid, SDV6 and V8 petrol carry over with no changes.

Both the updated Range Rover and Range Rover Sport are available to order from tomorrow.
