When the winds of model-year change blew on Land Rover's 2010 lineup, they hit the LR3 at hurricane speeds forceful enough to turn it into the LR4. A shade of velocity lost, they still rocked enough impact to reshape the Range Rover Sport into the faster and highly finessed luxo-beast we'd been pining for since we drove it in 2007.
By the time those gales rushed over the clamshell bonnet of the Range Rover they had slowed considerably, leaving a mild-by-comparison alteration of the top-tier landscape. That doesn't mean it wasn't a potent alteration, though: heightened sensations from innovations like the TFT dashboard and vastly increased motivation from the new Jaguar-derived 5.0-liter V8 helped make the total package a little bit better everywhere. And when you're already standing on the peak, every little bit counts for a lot.
