Range Rover Sport Supercharged--Chicago Cars Direct
Detailed test drive and walkaround of a 2006 Range Rover Sport Supercharged with Chris from Chicago Cars Direct. Sport might be something an Australian calls his buddy at the bar. As in: "G'day, sport, can I get you a beer?" But as used in the acronym SUV, the term doesn't usually apply that well. Most SUVs are just not that sporty, are they? However, in the case of the Land Rover Range Rover Sport, there's an argument to be made for the accuracy of the addendum. First, just in case you're as confused as we were, let's explain that the Range Rover Sport is a shortened and sharpened Land Rover LR3, brought to market to compete with sportier SUVs such as Porsche's Cayenne and BMW's X5. In the course of reinventing this Sport model from the LR3 platform, the transformation resulted in a vehicle that's about two inches shorter than the LR3 and offers much less interior room. Maximum cargo capacity for the Sport is 71 cubic feet compared with 90 for the LR3, and rear-seat space drops from 55 cubic feet to 49. Despite the smaller size, Land Rover managed to add weight. Our tester pounded the road at a porky 5866 pounds, whereas the last LR3 we tested weighed 5686 pounds. That could lead some to believe that this would be a slow and clumsy vehicle, but that's not the case. With its generous mass balanced very nearly evenly on the two axles, the Range Rover Sport conducts itself with remarkable poise. It doesn't hurt that the suspension is a combination of adaptive interlinked air springs and active anti-roll bars. Or that the vehicle is shod with 40-series tires on 20-inch wheels, which provide carlike steering response and look like sporty-car tires, despite the vehicle's all-terrain capability. Add to the remarkable undercarriage the 390-hp supercharged V-8 with its 410 pound-feet of torque, the powerplant normally found under the hood of an XKR or XJR Jaguar, and you can begin to understand why this Range Rover is called Sport. When hooked to a smooth-shifting six-speed automatic (with shift-it-yourself manumatic override), the V-8 powers the Rover around with ease, a restrained burble its only comment. Then stand on it hard, and the big Sport rushes forward with surprising determination, running to 60 mph in just 6.7 seconds. You can hear the Supercharger's wail during hard acceleration, but even then it isn't intrusive. In fact, all noise has been effectively suppressed in the Sport. Wind noise is well down on what one might expect from such a tall and square vehicle, and the Continental 4x4 SportContact tires, with their streetlike tread pattern, clearly do their bit to keep the 70-mph-cruising noise level down at 67 decibels. All of which is in character with the car's interior. Although based on the LR3 cockpit, the supercharged Sport wears enough premium leather and cherry wood to provide a decent compromise between utility and luxury. Metal-tone plastic accents on the door handles and alongside the center console are echoed on the steering wheel, and if the overall effect isn't quite as plush as in the Range Rover proper, well, the supercharged Sport is also less expensive by about five grand. The seats are firm and supportive, and the driving position is natural, with none of the bus-driver posture found in older Range Rovers. That expected SUV high vantage point is there, but the excellent body-motion control afforded by the Dynamic Response system—it automatically alters damping and roll-control rates according to how the car is being driven—minimizes any tipsy sensations. To check out its sport credentials, we drove the Range Rover Sport in the mountains near Malibu, California, and were pleasantly surprised at how well this vehicle takes to the tortuous ribbons of asphalt that traverse this area. Again, thanks to the mechanisms that discourage unwanted body motions, the vehicle avoids any rolling and wallowing during hard cornering. The brakes—four-piston Brembos on the front end—rein in the Range Rover with plenty of power and feel. Then you can swing the nose with the smooth ZF Servotronic steering gear, which is accurate and nicely weighted if not particularly communicative. As the vehicle reaches the corner apex, you then exploit the abundant torque of the supercharged V-8 and the all-wheel-drive system to pull the vehicle out of the corner without tire scrub. As long as the cautious stability-control system has been disabled, a driver can get on the power early and stay on a tight arc that avoids crossing over the center line. Range Rover engineers claim they could have dialed body roll right out of the equation but refrained from doing so to provide some of the cornering feedback most people expect.

Mercedes-Benz ML550 Sport--Chicago Cars Direct HD
Test drive and walkaround of a PRISTINE 2008 Mercedes-Benz ML550 Sport from Chicago Cars Direct. Outside the change isnt so evident; the new M looks a lot like the old, re-rendered in hi-def. The corners and bodyside lines are a little more creased; the trim and sparse chrome bits a little more defined. The saw-tooth grille insert is reminiscent of machined industrial equipment. Jeweled taillamps and HID headlights complete the high-tech theme. One thing hasnt changed, thoughthat oversized, tri-pointed star on the grille is still suitable for Flava-Flavs accessory drawer. Under the skin, the M has grown up, too. Engine choices are mostly new or updated, from the bread-and-butter V6 ML350 to the tested ML500, with prices increasing concurrent to horsepower. Weve driven the 268-horse ML350 model (at around $39,000 to start), and found it to be smooth if not exactly powerful. Zero-to-sixty acceleration is claimed to be an utterly adequate 8.4 seconds. In other words, its entirely sufficient for the soccer mom stereotype that we often see behind the wheel of these machines. And then theres that V8. The heart of the $48,500 ML500, weve enjoyed this same motor in a number of Benzesand even in this second-heaviest of applications (the new R-Class non-minivan is just a smidge stouter), its a beaut. With 339 lb.-ft. of torque, theres no shortage of off-the-line gruntand the 302 horsepower rating means the M pulls to way beyond our own limits on public roads (self-imposed restraint is prudent when piloting somebody elses spanking-new luxury vehicle, especially a tall one). Even more go is available with the 510hp AMG ML63, but we figure in an SUV, enough is enough. The ML500 hits 60 m.p.h. in under 7 seconds, which even we never found lacking. (For sciences sake, we will reveal that the 0-60 time of the ML63 is said to be 5 seconds flat, with top speed limited at over 155 m.p.h.) In true over-engineered Mercedes tradition, the rest of the greasy bits are more than up to the job of harnessing all that go. 255/55 rubber on 18-inch rims give grip suitable for sports-cars; 50-series tires on 19s are optional. Vented disc brakes of 13.8″ and 13″ diameter front/rear provide plenty of contrasting whoa. The transmission is that famous 7G-TRONIC seven-speed automatic, which reacts quickly yet serenely to driver inputs, never really feeling stressed. And the suspension, comprised of double wishbones up front and 4-link coils out back, plus gas-charged shocks, is softly compliant on rough roads, yet far from tippy or floaty when pushed. We didnt go too far off road, but weve tested MLs before and found them more than capable of traversing rougher terrain than most owners will ever see. Still, Mercedes outfits the ML500 with 4MATIC full-time all-wheel-drive, so the truck can at least back up the claims its rugged shape makes for it. For extra off-road prowess, Mercedes further fits a standard hill-ascent/descent control system, ESP and Traction Control, and four-channel ABS with off-road programming for better stopping on loose surfaces. Of course, your average Benz pilot probably never pops the hood, much less investigates the hardware under the car. For these folks, the true allure of a vehicle like thisbesides the status afforded by that aforementioned badgeis the opulence to be found inside. And as youd expect, the new ML doesnt fall short. Youd expect leather seats and wood trimand you wouldnt be disappointed. But you can feel the difference between Nappa leather from Italian bulls and leather from, say, Flints finest milk cowsMercedes hides feel twice as thick and yet twice as pliant as your average cow skin. The wood, too, feels not so much like an appliqué as a structural part of the dashboard. Even the interior bits your average driver doesnt often touch are high-class; the dashtop, for instance, has more give than some cars third-row seats. For a mid-size SUV, the ML is pretty roomy, too. Clever packaging gives this new model more passenger space than the outgoing soft-roader, especially in critical areas such as leg-room and elbow-room. An 8-speaker standard stereo, tilt/telescope multi-function steering wheel, automatic climate control, auto up/down windows, rain-sensing wipers and ambient lighting round out the best of the M-Class standard fare. Throw in the coffee table-sized sunroof, power everything, and full gauges with a gorgeous backlighting glow, and you get a truck that imparts a serious feeling of wealth to the drivereven if its just a loaner.
