All new 2014 Range Rover Sport pics leaked?

Next gen Range Rover Sport global launch in NYC on March 26.
Some pics appear to have "leaked" altho' the RR forums are not convinced that, although badged as a Sport, that this is not in fact a new model, the Range Rover Evoque XL.
Wonder if that tint guy is looking for a new position/career?

The front of the new Ranges really reminds me of a Ford Explorer

Looks so much better than the non-sport. I hate the faux vents on the side of the new Range Rover. At least this doesn't look like complete Explorer knock off.

Heard both cars were done by the same person.

If you look at the large Rover and the Explorer, the front and rear lights are almost identical, the overall shape.

OP, why did you repost your own post!? lol

EDIT: to prevent confusion, I should add that the photo below is of the current Ford Explorer.

I'm on the fence about it, I liked the previous model's signature look. It defined the range rover as different from the rest. This has been heavily influenced by the evoque obviously. Still not sure about it though.

The only complaint that I have is with the rear being pushed sooo high.

Other than that, it's exactly what I was expecting to see from Land Rover.

I like it!

It'd looked like his co-workers tried to set him up for this. Poor dude.

Lol.

What's going on here? Didn't Ford sell Land Rover to Tata in 2008?

Talk about diluting a brand for the purpose of selling more Fords. Do not like.

"If we make the new Lamborghini look like a Passat, people will buy more Passats! Let's do it!"

The Explorer steals from a huge chunk of Land Rover styling, must mean that all Land Rovers look like the Explorer now.
People say the same shit about the Sonata and CC copping off of the old school CLS.

A little different in this case, since the same designer had his hands in both vehicle's styling.

I like this a lot. Damn shame it will be priced in the stratosphere here in Norway, it'll be significantly more expensive than the competition, I have no idea what the Norwegian importer is thinking.
