The 2014 Range Rover Sport has recently been named Four Wheeler of the Year by Four Wheeler Magazine, edging out rivals like Jeep, Toyota and Dodge.
The Four Wheeler of the Year honor, now in its 41st year, is granted annually to a brand new model vehicle or a vehicle that has seen drastic improvements from the previous model year. Each “four wheeler” is subjected to a variety of tests and awarded points for performance, build and off-road capabilities. To qualify for Four Wheeler of the Year, each vehicle must come equipped with a transfer case and dedicated low range gear. It must also have been on sale to the public before February 15, 2014.
From the Official Release:
"It is a great achievement for the very luxurious and performance oriented Range Rover Sport to be named 'Four Wheeler of the Year,' by the country's oldest four-wheel drive enthusiast publication," said Kim McCullough, Brand Vice President, Land Rover North America. "To win this extreme off-road competition with the all-new Range Rover Sport highlights the work our engineers and designers have done to enhance our already-leading breadth of capability."
"Our testers appreciated the 510hp, nearly 12 inches of ground clearance, 10-11 inches of wheeltravel at each corner, and a 0-60 time of 5 seconds flat. Add a traction control system that allows the driver to make use of these impressive specifications on- and off-road, along with a plush interior with all the amenities and you have our 2014 Four Wheeler of the Year, the Range Rover Sport," said John Capa, Editor-in-Chief of Four Wheeler.
