Where does an 800-pound gorilla sit? Anywhere he wants to. Well, if the big fella takes a seat in the all-new 2014 Land Rover Range Rover Sport, the luxury SUV will see no net weight gain compared with the previous model. Cars.com reviewer Kelsey Mays, who got to monkey with the Range Rover Sport during its debut at the 2013 New York International Auto Show, notes that this version shed 800 pounds through liberal use of lightweight aluminum, boosting quickness and fuel efficiency for 2014.

Also new for 2014 are a supercharged V-6, an auto terrain response setting that senses surroundings and adapts to it, and a platform shared with the Range Rover making it more evocative of its namesake vehicle. Check out the video below.

One of the main differences between the outgoing 5.0-liter, V8 engine and the supercharged V6 is power and speed. The new 3.0-liter, supercharged V6 makes 340 horsepower, down 35 from the old V8, and Land Rover says the 2014 Range Rover reaches 60 mph in 7.1 seconds. That’s six-tenths of a second slower than the base 2013 Range Rover.
