When you’re looking for the large luxury SUV that you’ll love to enjoy on and off the road the Land Rover Discovery makes a great choice. This big brute has replaced the LR4 in the lineup for Land Rover and is now the three row seven passenger SUV from Land Rover that sits at the top of the lineup. This redesigned SUV has more rounded edges, which is the beginning of the departure from the blocking build of the old LR4. This new model has shed close to 1,000 pounds from what the LR4 weighed in at to give you the lighter feel that you want.
Thanks to this change in the weight of the Discovery the power coming out of the engines is more useful than ever. This change makes the Discovery lighter and quicker on the road and on the trails. This new Land Rover hasn’t lost a step when it comes to off road credibility either, this SUV is packed with sophisticated off road equipment to make it the right choice for you when you want to enjoy the ride. You’ll love everything about the new Discovery when you make this the right choice for your driving needs.
Using the Discovery name makes this an instantly recognizable SUV that sits at the top of the Land Rover lineup. You can have the new 2017 model with either two or three rows and enjoy the new look, the benefits of a diesel engine and take advantage of the impressive list of safety and driving aids that are included on this brute. If you want a large SUV that makes driving fun and exciting once again this is the vehicle for you and it has the ability to give you up to 26 mpg on the highway, which is unheard of in this class.
With this SUV you have two choices when it comes to the engines offered. Both of them are 3.0-liter V6 models which makes it easy to know what you’re getting. The first is a supercharged mode that’s powered by gasoline and brings in 340 horsepower and 332 lb.-ft. of torque. The second engine is a turbocharged diesel engine that provides 254 horsepower and 442 lb.-ft. of torque for you to enjoy the efficient ride. Both of these engines are attached to an eight-speed automatic transmission to give you a smooth transition across the gears. All models offer full time 4WD and impressive tow rating to give you the capability you want.
There are four trim levels of the Discovery for you to enjoy on the road. These trims are SE, HSE, HSE Luxury and a limited run First Edition. The base model SE offers you the benefit of the Terrain Response 2 system, dual zone climate controls, a panoramic sunroof, leather upholstery, 12-way adjustable front seats, a hands free power tailgate, rear parking sensors, a ten-speaker 250-watt audio system, Bluetooth connectivity, and an eight-inch infotainment screen. The SE and HSE come with standard two row/five passenger seating with the third row optional.
Moving up to the options the HSE model gives you tri-zone automatic climate controls, a ten-inch high-def infotainment screen, a 380-watt Meridian audio system and a power inner tailgate. The HSE Luxury brings you seating for seven people, an air suspension, a two-speed transfer case, an 825-watt Meridian audio system, heated front and rear seats, a heated steering wheel and 16-way front seats. You can add a surround camera system, blind spot monitoring, traffic sign recognition system, lane keep assist and adaptive cruise control with automatic emergency braking to the mix. If you choose the First Edition you won’t have options to choose from because they’re all included in this package.
Driving the Land Rover Discovery is a serious commitment to off roading that makes it easy for you to enjoy the drive wherever you want to go. There’s no reason you can have the very best when you want to head out on the trails and this SUV is certainly the very best you can have when you’re looking for the right way to enjoy the drive that takes you to the new adventures you’ve been dreaming of.
