The 2014 Land Rover Range Rover Sport has won the highly sought-after Four Wheeler of the Year
award. The Range Rover Sport was up against the Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited, Jeep Cherokee
Trailhawk, Toyota 4Runner, and Dodge Durango Limited. This marks the third time Range Rover has
earned this honor.
Each of the vehicles was evaluated based on the following five categories: trail performance, mechanical
and empirical data, on-road performance, interior, and exterior. The competition took place over five
days in Southern California and covered 1000 miles at both high and low altitudes in daytime and
"Our testers appreciated the 510hp, nearly 12in of ground clearance, 10-11in of wheel travel at each
corner, and a 0-60mph time of 5sec flat," said John Cappa, Editor-in-Chief of Four Wheeler magazine.
"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."
"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."
All participants had to be either all-new or substantially revised from the previous model year, available
