2012 Land Rover Range Rover Sport

2012 Land Rover Range Rover Sport – Range Rover Sport comes with an image of body slightly renovated and two new mechanics, petrol and other diesel, high performance and maximum efficiency. It is already available at Land Rover dealerships, from 64.810 euros (see all prices). From may 2012 offers more options for customization (more info).

Dynamically improved chassis
Range Rover Sport is 4,972 millimeters in length (4.183 the more potent V8 5.0 mm), 2.158 millimeters wide, 1.784 mm high and has a wheelbase of 2,880 mm, keeping the same dimensions of the model launched in 2008.

The front suspension uses a MacPherson type axle while the rear suspension is a double Trapeze System. To improve the dynamic performance, suspension features an electronic system, latest technology in the field of air suspensions, with system Adaptive Dynamics that exerts a firm vehicle cornering control while is pampers occupants inside. This pneumatic suspension system is complemented by a few new DampTronic dampers, which feature a new valve technology active, able to vary their pressure up to 500 times per second, continuously adapting to the conditions of surface and driving style.

Brake system varies according to mechanical versions. Diesel versions have front ventilated discs 360 mm in diameter, with four-piston fixed caliper, while the more powerful version of the SuperCharged V8, supercharged gasoline, has ventilated disks of greater diameter, 380 mm in diameter, developed by Brembo, with six-piston opposed aluminum calipers. In all three versions, the rear discs are also vented, 365 mm in diameter with a piston sliding caliper.

Also, new is the steering system which now has a ratio of variable gear ratio which improves stability. Roll Stability Control system allows to offer a control precise chassis performance, responding to the movements of the steering wheel from the driver and intervening on wheels, individually, if the possibility of a rollover is detected.

Terrain Response extends its functions
The Terrain Response system, completely developed by Land Rover, has been enhanced with the addition of three new functions, which allow to increase and improve the dynamic behaviour of the chassis of the new Range Rover Sport 2011, ensuring security in any type of terrain.

The new Sand Launch Control function, which will be available from the launch of the new Range Rover Sport, improves the boot in sand, adding a greater capacity of traction, even in the program rocks.

This update offers two new features, Hill Start Assist and Gradient Acceleration Control. The first function retains the initial pressure of the brake, which gives more easily the driver to change from the brake pedal to the accelerator and prevents the vehicle back when you start the movement in a slope land. The brake is automatically released after one sufficient time has elapsed or when the engine has achieved sufficient torque to overcome the inclination. This system is permanently activated.

Function Gradient Acceleration Control (GAC) is designed to provide security on steep slopes and when the driver does not have powered earrings HDC’s descent Control System. Increasing the pressure on the brakes, the GAC slow car to the limit determined by the throttle position when you are down a steep slope area and keeping the driver control of the direction at all times both forward and backwards. On other occasions the system restricts the speed to 5 km/h for up to 20 seconds, allowing the driver to regain control.

The Range Rover Sport adopts important changes in the body. Old three thin slats chrome grille gives way to a new design, two long lamas in Dark Atlas design in contrast to the contour of the grille radiator in Santorini black and the interior of lighthouses in Gloss Black Finish. The V8 version only has 20 “Sparkle Silver ultra finish and Atlas grid alloy wheels. It is also completely new bumper, now with a central crosspiece.

Tailgate is electric and standard on all versions and features new graphics, the door handles, are now the same color of the bodywork and revised the design of the side air intakes. It also offers a new five spoke design diamond for wheels aluminum alloy 20 inches in diameter and three new colors of body, Fuji white, bronze and black Nara Santorini.

Inside, remains the classic design combined with sportiness, luxury and elegance, while they have increased these last two qualities with three new combinations of wood and leather to the cockpit: ebony and ivory with seats of ivory, ebony and ivory with seats of ebony or ebony with seats of Tan, all of them combined with the three new colours of the bodywork. In addition, FOMA optional it is possible to have a new coating to the roof, design Ebony Morzine.

Optionally, Land Rover offers the possibility of adding a new set of equipment consisting of a carefully selected leather upholstery with seams contrast, steering wheel with heating and inside adaptive cruise control, while incorporating outside gills side design Titan, in design, 20-inch aluminum alloy wheels and front grille ICE Premium and emblem HSE Luxury that represents the ultimate luxury.

Entertainment, information and sound without rival
Sound and Hi-ICE infotainment systems incorporate new electronic technology MOST Gen 2.1. For information and entertainment, they will offer two systems, Hi-Line and Premium, both with connectivity for audio on DVD format, hard disk, and dual tuner features audio and video streaming via Bluetooth and two USB ports installed on the top of the console. In the rear seats, the exclusive WhiteFire technology allows the use of headphones wireless.

“Both systems can be complemented with a powerful and sophisticated system of navigation, with hard, to”Say What You See”voice control and information functions of TMC (Traffic Message Channel) traffic and introduction of destination, on a touch screen of 7a” technology with Dual View allowing the driver to check the navigation screen while his companion enjoys a DVD. Exclusively from this navigation system is the weekly timer for parking heater.

In sound, the most basic system is the ICE of Harman Kardon, with 11 speakers and an amplifier with an output of 380 W, but also offered a more crisp sound thanks to the Premium Harman Kardon LOGIC 7 team, with 17 original speakers and an amplifier with a power of 825 W.

New Range Rover Sport incorporates the new propeller of eight-cylinder in V presented last year and which is also featured in the most exclusive Range Rover, offering a higher level of refinement and performance, at the same time to comply with the more stringent regulations regarding the issuance of Euro 5 exhaust gas.

New mechanical diesel with two levels of power
The new Range Rover Sport has a new block of six cylinders in V and three liters of displacement that develops 211 HP and 255 maximum horsepower, both at 4,000 RPM, with 520 and 600 Nm of torque, available from 2,000 RPM, respectively.

Developed by the own brand Land Rover and known internally as LR-TDV6, it replaces the previous steel LR-TDV8 3.6 liters of displacement function block and combines performance with the substantial decline in emissions, thanks to the most advanced technologies available. While the version of 211 CV accelerates to 100 km/h in 10.4 seconds reaches a top speed of 193 km/h, while benefits in 255 HP version, are slightly better, with an acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in 8.8 seconds and a top speed of 193 km/h. both versions are associated with a 8-speed automatic gearbox, with figures of consumption and emissions of just 8.5 l / 100 km in the first and 8.8 l / 100 km in the second and with CO2 emissions of 224 and 230 grams per kilometre, respectively.

The key to the performance of the new engine and the efficiency is the system of parallel sequential turbochargers, one of fixed geometry and other variable. During normal driving only operates a turbocharger, medium sized, variable geometry, optimizing efficiency. When the engine speed rise beyond the 2,400 RPM, open valves in the exhaust manifold and a smaller turbocharger accelerates to full speed in just 20 milliseconds, the fully operational bi-turbo is accomplished in only 180 milliseconds. This method allows that the second turbocharger is idle when not required, improving the efficiency of the engine and reducing pumping losses. A balance pipe connects the two collectors to equalize the pressure between the two exhaust systems.

Thus, most of the time only one turbocharger is running, the setting is excellent, thanks to the location of a turbo and a collector under each cylinder Bank and reduced losses of a given pumping that works most of the time an only turbocharger.

In the version of 255 HP, throttle response is impressive with a maximum torque available from just 2,000 rpm, in addition to deliver 500 Nm only 500 milliseconds from idle, which means having a 83 percent of maximum torque instantly. The new Range Rover Sport is the first model of its kind to be equipped with a diesel engine with architecture in V and a set of twin-turbocharged in parallel.

In addition, both versions have DPF particulate filter and valve exhaust EGR advanced for reducing NOx and Start & Stop device.

Third-generation direct injection
The third generation of the injection system Common Rail direct socket base mechanics of previous three-liter LR-TDV6 block, operating at a pressure of up to of 2,000 bar. Eight-hole piezo injectors to optimize even more emissions and contribute the EU5 engine certification and reduce the noise to a minimum, as well as fueling on-demand, increasing efficiency, and reducing the amount of cooling required.

High-performance gasoline
The petrol version is a V8 block of five litres with a supercharging system that reaches a maximum power of 510 horsepower, available between 6,000 and 6,500 RPM and a maximum torque of 625 Newton meters, available between 2,500 and 5,500 revolutions per minute.

Thus, the performance obtained is an acceleration from zero to 100 km/h in 5.9 seconds and reaches a top speed of 210 km/h, improving the amount of consumption, with 14.9 litres every 100 kilometres and a figure of only 348 g / km CO2 emissions.

Land Rover overfeeding
The new Range Rover Sport Supercharged reaches the maximum power of 510 horsepower, thanks to a series of technologies combined together with the maximum precision. It is the same propeller on Range Rover range 2011, the most luxurious and exclusive Land Rover model.

Among them, stands out the new volumetric compressor Eaton, sixth generation twin-vortex system. This has a new rotor which improves the thermodynamic efficiency by 16 per cent compared to previous designs and reducing its sonority to the maximum expression.

In addition, it has the latest generation of the system of direct injection of 150 bar pressure with multi-orificios injectors and spray guided system that fully optimizes combustion, reducing costs and increasing the power of the vehicle. This injection system works together with a system of dual variable valve timing, which relies on the torque generated by the axes of camshaft of the marking and cooling reverse engine, helping to increase energy efficiency, the engine performance and the comfort of the occupants of the vehicle.

Two speed automatic transmissions, six or eight: examples of efficiency
The two mechanical options the new Range Rover Sport 2011 diesel mounted, series, a new ZF 8HP70 automatic transmission, eight-speed, that has been calibrated, especially by Land Rover engineers, to optimize the characteristics of propeller, while the 510 HP V8 version has a ZF 6HP28 automatic transmission, six relations.

Both gearboxes have the CommanShift, replaced by a rotary switch, element system identical to that you assemble Jaguar models, featuring the modes of parking, reverse, deadlock, driving or sports. Latter optimizes the response times of transmission offering maximum acceleration, better performance and faster changes, keeping the torque on already reduced levels that, with each change March, locks are produced in less time, in addition to reducing slippage in the hydraulic torque converter and with the consequent decrease of the consumption of fuel and CO2 emissions.

The transmission to 8HP70 needn’t change sequentially to a shorter speed and can jump up to 6 gears if necessary. Meanwhile, in 6HP28 automatic transmission, torque converter is calibrated to lock when the vehicle travels at low speed and at operating temperature, thanks to the new idle Control, which selects the deadlock when the vehicle is stationary with the engine at idling speed decreasing the burden on the motor.

Additionally, if the sensor has a high temperature, the control software selects a downshift more, increasing the speed of the engine and the compressor of the air conditioning system to cool the cockpit quickly. If the ambient temperature is low, the motor operates more regime to reduce warm-up time and issued emissions.

Intelligent Sport mode manages to adapt all the features of the gearbox to each style of driving. Together with the system of detection of curves, he is responsible for avoiding unwanted changes when faced with a sequence of curves and, also, monitors the use of the brake and the rate of deceleration, selecting the most appropriate March to enter and exit the curve.

As the Range Rover range 2011, the new Sport incorporates a new solution of the energy regeneration, ensuring a correct power to all systems of the car, but without wasting it, thanks to a new system intelligent management of power intelligent IPMS, developed by Land Rover, ensures that alternator works only when strictly necessary.

The IPMS is responsible for keeping the battery charged to 80 percent to prevent the alternator will force more than necessary, instead of keeping the State of the battery charge on a 100 percent unnecessary.

The alternator is configured to load where possible, when the car begins to slow down recovering kinetic energy in the process. Rates of burden are carefully moderated when it’s cold to prolong the battery life. In the case of the diesel engine, the alternator’s charging capacity is 220 amp.
