Re-write press releases much? More than you might think.

A River Runs Through: Imagine an SUV that is able to blaze from zero to sixty in 5.9 seconds, then jump off the highway into the valley and across the river, and be back on the street in time for dinner. Give it a clean wash and the aforementioned story would have seemed like a small white lie. This is what a supercharged V8 is able to accomplish in the Range Rover Sport, a sophisticated 4×4 that runs like a sports car. Available with both new engines, I fancy the S/C model by far.

    The driver was likely following a defective nav system.

    @ Steven Lang I am curious as to where you got the BMW reference for this Range Rover, since Range Rover was owned by Ford and then recently sold to Tata as part of the Jaguar-Land Rover Group sale. Anyways, this particular Range Rover utilizes Jaguar's 5.0 supercharged engine, the same one in the beast known as the XFR.

    Looks more rural than urban to me.

    Yeah, but the horse gets better miles per bushel.
