Be Prepared to Wait for Your 2023 Range Rover Sport
It feels a little strange to say that the new Range Rover Sport is out because it’s not exactly available. It’s plagued with long waiting times, making it harder to get. Check out how long the wait for a 2023 Range Rover Sport is.
How long is the wait for a 2023 Range Rover Sport?
Currently, the wait for a 2023 Range Rover Sport is expected to last between six to nine months. However, some 2023 Rover Sport models could be delayed for over a year. Orders of some of the popular Evoque trims have been suspended.
The demand is so high that dealers are asking people not to sell their Land Rover model outside of the franchised dealer network within six months of receiving it. However, you may be able to refuse that part of the contract.
Recent updates show that people have been waiting for 10 months to a year for their SUVs to arrive. It could have a two-year waiting list.
But the 2023 Rover Sport isn’t alone. Automakers have been struggling with production due to supply chain issues like the ongoing semiconductor chip shortage. Manufacturers are also still recovering from the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.
What’s new for the 2023 Rover Sport?
Demand could be highest for the 2023 Range Rover Sport because it was recently redesigned. It has a new, sleek look with a totally revamped interior and cutting-edge tech. Plus, the Range Rover Sport EV is on the way.
It still has the same entry-level 3.0-liter inline-six engine that’s paired with a 48-volt hybrid system to generate 355 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque. The P400 Dynamic trim gets the high-output version of this powertrain for 395 hp and 406 lb-ft of torque.
The Autobiography model gets an exclusive plug-in hybrid version of the P440e setup. It adds an electric motor and a larger battery to the inline-six engine to crank out 434 hp and 619 lb-ft of torque. It has an estimated electric range of 42 miles on a single charge.
Also, the top-spec P530 First Edition trim brings the heat with a twin-turbo 4.4-liter V8 engine with 523 hp and 533 lb-ft of torque.
With the V8, the 2023 Range Rover Sport can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in about 4.3 seconds. Each model is paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission, standard all-wheel drive, and an adjustable air suspension.
