After debuting late last year, the all-new Land Rover Range Rover is now on sale. Come 2023, the next-generation Range Rover Sport is due to arrive and, once again, it’ll be a vital model for the automaker. In case you didn’t already know, the current Range Rover Sport has outsold the regular Range Rover by over 40 percent.
