Don't think I'm hating on the RR sport, it's a nice truck, and I loved it at first, but it's just not in the same league as these Euro Autobahn PowerCruisers, or w/e you want to call them, if however you want to do some semi-serious to serious off-roading and/or rock climbimg, the Land Rover will crawl circles around the Euro Autobahn PowerCruisers.
Interesting, I was beyond impressed with it at the auto show but maybe I need to take one for a drive.
