2013 Land Rover Range Rover Sport Overview

By Cars.com Editors
Vehicle Overview

Land Rover's venerable Range Rover can tackle tough off-road terrain that would foil less-capable SUVs, yet it still has the cachet to warrant a front-and-center parking space at an upscale hotel. Much of the Range Rover's style and off-road-ready hardware has carried over to the automaker's less expensive Range Rover Sport. The Range Rover Sport is offered with a 375-horsepower, 5.0-liter V-8 or a supercharged 5.0-liter V-8 that makes 510 hp. Competitors include the BMW X5 and Mercedes-Benz M-Class.
New for 2013
Land Rover introduces two special versions of the Range Rover Sport for 2013: the Supercharged Limited Edition and the GT Limited Edition. While powertrains remain unchanged, the 510-hp Supercharged Limited Edition gets unique red Sport badges on the tailgate and red brake calipers. A carbon fiber veneer package is also available.

The non-supercharged GT Limited Edition brings various exterior enhancements including an extended roof spoiler, black five-spoke 20-inch alloy wheels and special chrome exhaust tips. Inside, the GT Limited Edition comes with steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters and a LOGIC7 premium stereo.

Other changes for the 2013 model year include red Brembo-brand brake calipers for supercharged models, revised wheel designs and an optional towing package with a hitch receiver and variable locking rear differential.

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
