INDIANAPOLIS — With the summer season we’re going to have many warm days with clear blue skies and gentle breezes.

ST. GEORGE, Utah —  The boxy Land Rover LR4 is fresh off a complete redesign and is not only a thoroughly different looking vehicle, but also has a new name: Land Rover Discovery. This fifth-generation model sports a new look inside and out and features a slew of technological advancements.

The second-generation Range Rover Sport arrived in 2014 conceived alongside the all-new slightly larger Range Rover, and we discovered a year ago that it is a vehicle truly deserving of the "sport" moniker — endowed with a quick, agile personality that seems as anxious to take on winding roads as the most rugged rock-strewn and water-infested outback.

At a company where significant changes come at a glacial pace, the second-generation Sport has finally arrived for 2014 and is a marked improvement over the outgoing model — lighter, sportier and more fuel efficient, but with a bigger cabin and more passenger space.
