2023 Range Rover Sport Debuts As All-New Lincoln Aviator Rival

Back in October of last year, the 2022 Range Rover was revealed as an all-new 2022 Lincoln Navigator rival that introduced a number of new elements to the long-running model, including third-row seating and a plug-in hybrid model, which is set to launch for the 2023 model year. Now, the third-generation 2023 Range Rover Sport has debuted as an all-new Lincoln Aviator rival that slots in the automaker’s lineup just below the Range Rover.

Like the regular Range Rover, the 2023 Range Rover Sport has undergone a total redesign that gives it a sleeker exterior which covers a wheelbase three inches longer than its predecessor, with four trim levels available – P360 SE, P400 SE Dynamic, P440e Autobiography, and P530 First Edition. Every U.S.-bound Range Rover Sport will be equipped with all-wheel drive and an eight-speed automatic transmission, though engine choices vary based on trim.

Both the P360 SE and P400 SE Dynamic come equipped with a turbocharged 3.0L I-6 that’s paired with a a 48-volt hybrid system, though the former generates 355 horsepower and the later, 395 ponies. The P440e Autobiography is a plug-in hybrid that adds a 31.8 kWh battery to the mix, which gives it 48 miles of electric-only driving range and 434 horsepower. Finally, the P530 First Edition is equipped with BMW’s twin-turbo 4.4-liter V8 that generates 523 horsepower – good for a 0-60 romp of 4.3 seconds. An EV variant is also in the works, but it won’t arrive until next year.

As one would expect, the 2023 Ranger Rover Sport also features a redesigned interior with a host of luxury and tech features including 22-way power seats with heating, ventilation, and massage, a 13.7-inch digital gauge cluster, a 13.1-inch infotainment screen, and an optional 1,430-watt, 29-speaker Meridian sound system, to name just a few.

The 2023 Range Rover Sport is one sale now with pricing set at $84,350 for the P360 SE, $91,350 for the P400 SE Dynamic, $105,550 for the P440e Autobiography, and $122,850 for the P530 First Edition.

Brett's lost track of all the Fords he's owned over the years and how much he's spent modifying them, but his current money pits include an S550 Mustang and 13th gen F-150.

    I like how every new car that comes out no matter how much better it is than one of Ford’s or Lincoln’s, they always consider it a rival

    1. Alex Luft

      The RR Sport competes in the same general segment as the Aviator, thereby making it a rival.

  2. Mrx19

    Say what you want about Range Rovers reliability, a lot of manufactures could take a cue from their clean styling, free of gimmicks. Very well done.

  3. Marco G

    The Navigator may be good, but it wishes it could rise to this elevation. This RR Sport is the best looking thing I’ve seen in a while and the 440e with a plug is brilliant. just wait until it’s fully electric.
