2011 Land Rover Range Rover Sport

The 2011 Range Rover Sport bridges the gap between the LR4 and the Range Rover line. Despite its name and appearance, the Range Rover Sport has more in common with the LR4 than it does with the Range Rover. Based on a modified LR4 chassis, the Range Rover sport offers up the robust underpinnings of the LR4 with the appearance and luxury of the Range Rover. The Range Rover Sport is available in four trims: HSE, HSE LUX, Supercharged, and Autobiography.

All information on this page is for U.S.-specification vehicles unless otherwise indicated.

2011 Range Rover Sport Trims

The 2011 Land Rover Range Rover Sport is available in four trims, plus one special edition. The “base” trim is the HSE, which is followed by the HSE LUX, the Supercharged, and the Autobiography. In addition to the standard trims is a special edition Range Rover Sport GT Limited Edition, which combines the styling of the Range Rover Sport Autobiography with the non-supercharged 5.0-Liter V8 engine. Introductory MSRPs range from $60,495.00 for the HSE up to $86,395.00 for the Autobiography. There are a limited number of options available at each trim level, with popular options including the Comfort Climate Pack ($1,500.00), harman/kardon® LOGIC7® Surround Audio system ($1,650.00), and the Vision Assist Pack ($1,200.00).

2011 Range Rover Sport Performance

The Range Rover Sport offers two engine options, depending on trim. The introductory engine is the 5.0-liter V8 that produces 375-horsepower and 375 ft.-lbs. torque. This engine is standard on the HSE, HSE LUX, and the GT Limited Edition. The engine is backed by a six-speed automatic transmission with CommandShift®. This combination make the Range Rover Sport good for zero-to-60 MPH times of 7.2 seconds. Mileage comes in at 13 City and 18 Highway. The Supercharged and Autobiography models make use of a supercharged 5.0-liter V8 engine that ups horsepower to 510.  Should you have need to tow, the Range Rover Sport features a respectable tow rating of 7,716 pounds when properly equipped.

Base Engine: 5.0-Liter V8 Engine with 375-Horsepower and 375 ft.-lbs. Torque
Transmission: 6-Speed Automatic w/ CommandShift®
Fuel Economy (MPG): 13 City / 18 Highway

2011 Range Rover Sport Exterior

The Range Rover Sport is slightly smaller than the Range Rover, yet despite the smaller dimensions, little curb weight is shaved off the Range Rover Sport compared to the Range Rover. The non-supercharged Range Rover Sport comes in at a 5,540 lbs., a mere 157 pounds lighter than the Range Rover. As expected, this weight does have an impact on performance both on- and off-road. The design aesthetic is without doubt Range Rover. However, the Range Rover Sport is no badge-engineered copy or “lesser” alternative to the Range Rover. The vehicle is very much a standalone offering that just so happens to share a name with a sibling model, much like the Range Rover Evoque.

2011 Range Rover Sport Interior

The Range Rover Sport is yet another example of Land Rover’s commitment to improving the interiors of its lineup. Flat surfaces and lots of plastic used to be a Land Rover interior hallmark, but fortunately those days appear to be behind us. The interior of the Range Rover Sport shares many of the same general forms and functions of the Range Rover, but the elements have been tweaked and redistributed across the dash to better integrate with the fit and function of the Range Rover Sport. The gently sloping center stack and the steering wheel contain the bulk of the controls.

Soft-touch surfaces are found throughout the cabin and interior colors can range from stately all-black to dynamic contrasting colors. Base colors include ivory, ebony, almond, Arabica (a rich coffee color), and tan (rich brown), which are available in a limited number of combinations with ocean (blue), lunar (graphite), nutmeg (light brown), and ivory. The interior can be finished in Walnut wood, Anigre wood, or black lacquer.

Seating Capacity: 5
Headroom (Front/Rear): 38.5/38.4 in.
Legroom (Front/Rear): 42.4/37.6 in.
Shoulder room (Front/Rear): 58.7/57.6 in.
Cargo Volume – Rear Seats Up: 33.8 cu. ft.
Cargo Volume -Rear Seats Folded: 71.0 cu. ft.
