I am privately selling my 2009 Range Rover Sport HSE. Buckinham Blue exterior with Tan interior. This car has all options with the exclusion of the Luxury package. The luxury package included the Cold Climate Package which this truck has and the woodgrain on the interior which I personally did not like. This truck has the aluminum look vs. woodgrain.
The Cold Climate Package includes the front and rear heated seats, heated steerling wheel, heated windshield and heated washers on the headlamps. I can tell you from personal experience that the heated wheel and windshield are one of the best options in these trucks.
It also has a moon roof, satellite radio, range rover branded heavy duty front, rear and spaceloader black and metal rubber mats which have been in the truck since I purchased it new. I also have the tan matts that came with the truck and have never been used.
In addition I wanted to make sure that I was selling a truck that wouldn't need any additional work/cost to the new owner. So in the past 2 months I put (4) new tires on the vehicle ($1,200), had it professionally detailed ($300), had a new heated windshield installed, I had it inspected by Range Rover over the summer and had the internal Hepa filters changed which I didnt even know existed in addition to an oil change and rear brakes so the truck is in excellent running condition.
I would say that the overall condition of this truck is good-very good. Leaning towards very good condition. Let me outline the small imperfections. The right 2 rims have rash marks. The front bumper has two small scuffs in the paint. The rear bumper has a ding and the right rear passenger door has a VERY small ding. On the interior the only thing I would say is that just above the Navigation unit the sun caused the black plastic to peel a little.
I have taken all of these things into consideration with my price and I am selling the truck below the standard asking price on ebay.
It is a very nice truck and the only reason I am selling it is because I recently relocated to NYC and do not have a need for 2 vehicles at this time. I was considering keeping it for a very long time knowing that I have taken very good care of this truck and it has not had a single problem but it just doesnt make sense. You are buying a single owner well taken care of vehicle. I take my cars seriously as I have a family to protect and would only put them in the safest vehicle on the road.
I have the clean carfax for the truck and I am happy to take additional pictures at your request and within reason.
I cannot ship this vehicle so it is a pick up sale only. You are welcome to view the vehicle as I have it in NYC at a secure indoor facility.

Land Rover makes some of the most capable SUVs on or off the road, and some of the most luxurious too. But the British automaker isn't about to rest on those laurels - not when every other automaker assaults its territory with sport-utes of their own. That's why Land Rover has been working so hard on nifty new technologies from a depth-sounder in the door mirror of the Range Rover Sport an augmented-reality head-up display that makes the whole front of the car virtually disappear.

JLR's newest tech may not be ground-breaking, but its integration promises to make driving around town that much easier. The system syncs with the driver's smartphone and uses all manner of parameters - including driver habits, weather and location as well as the presence of other passengers - to make the commute go as smoothly as possible. Get into the car and it'll set the seat and mirrors for you. No big deal, because lots of cars do that. But it'll also set up the nav system to take you to work and the sound system to play your favorite music. Okay, getting more interesting.
Get in with your kids and it'll know not only that you've got to drop them off at school first (or remind you to pack their gym bag if they've got soccer practice after school that day) but that they might not enjoy that Chumbawamba album you've been listening to since college and it'll play something it knows you'll all enjoy based on your listening history. Then it'll switch back to Tubthumping once the kids are out, remind you of your morning meeting and alert those you're scheduled to meet with if you get stuck in traffic while finding you a better route to get there, monitoring fuel levels all the while and telling you if you'll need to tank up before you reach your destination. It knows if you like calling your mother on the drive to work and will lower the air suspension to make it easier to hop out once you get there.
It's hard to think back now, but the same man overseeing the design of the 2013 Ford Fusion also presided over a rather lackluster period in Ford design, highlighted by vehicles like the Five Hundred and Freestyle. With the redesigned Fusion receiving high praise, J Mays tells Automotive News that he feels vindicated from criticisms suggesting he's not a daring enough designer.

When Mays took over as lead of design in 1997, he admits to having quite an ego ("My head would barely fit through the door some days. I've long since gotten over myself") and the workload to match. With the Blue Oval's portfolio full of premium brands like Aston Martin, Jaguar, Land Rover and Volvo at that point, along with the bread-and-butter Ford, Lincoln and Mercury models, Mays certainly had quite the challenge.
It was in the mid-2000s that Mays took over just the premium brands, and took on the new title of Chief Creative Officer. At the time, Mays endured some criticism for looking backwards to retro styling, rather than setting a new standard for American car design - criticism that Mays says he is free from with the all-new Fusion.
The upcoming line of compact 3 Series-fighters from Jaguar, often referred to as the Jaguar XS, could consist of a sedan, wagon and possibly a coupe and GT model (think BMW 5 Series GT). The car's all-aluminum architecture also will provide the basis for two new sports utility vehicles. Just how important is the much-touted "baby Jag" project to parent company Jaguar Land Rover? A JLR executive reportedly says the brand's survival is directly linked to the success of the XS, codenamed X760, Autocar reports.
The brand's survival is directly linked to the success of the XS.
"If the X760 fails, it will probably be the end for the [Jaguar] brand," the executive says. But Adrian Hallmark, Jaguar's global brand director, claims Jaguar will "build the most advanced, most efficient, most refined car in that [compact luxury sedan] segment. Not almost as good as, but better than the best in the world."
