Upon its global debut, the British marque announced that the latest iteration would be offered with two extended-range hybrid powertrains — the (324 kW) P440e and (375 kW) P510e — and several six-cylinder petrol and diesel engines. The former includes the P350 and P400, while the latter comprises the D250, D300 and D350. However, now allowing South Africans to configure the new Range Rover Sport on their website, the local arm of the Coventry-based carmaker has revealed which of these will make their way to SA.

Upon local introduction “towards the end of the year”, the local engine line-up will comprise the D350, P400 and P510e. As a reminder, the D350-badged 3.0-litre six-cylinder turbodiesel churns out 258 kW. The turbocharged six-cylinder petrol unit powering the P400 produces 294 kW. The P510e variant has a plug-in hybrid powertrain that produces 375 kW. 

When revealed, Land Rover announced that a 390 kW V8 engine would also be available. The company also mentioned that, in 2024, the new Range Rover Sport line-up would gain a fully electric variant.

Regarding local specifications, the new generation will be available with the option of five trim levels. These include Dynamic S, Dynamic SE, Dynamic HSE, First Edition, and Autobiography.
