Land Rover has revealed the all‑new Discovery, the fifth generation Discovery, to be exact, a full‑size, seven‑seat SUV created for absolute versatility and capability. The new off-roader is a marriage between a radical new exterior design and a highly versatile interior that can seat up to seven passengers.
To celebrate the launch of the all-new Discovery, an exclusive First Edition model limited to about 500 examples in the United States will demonstrate some of the key design and technology features of the new model. The car stands out thanks to unique etched map detailing on the aluminum trim for the doors and dashboard, exclusive badges, bold color choices and a comprehensive list of standard equipment. First Edition vehicles will be available in Namib Orange with a black grille and detailing, Narvik Black contrast roof and 21-inch black wheels; Silicon Silver with the same black grille, detailing and 21-inch silver wheels; or Farallon Black with 21-inch silver wheels, a black grille and detailing.
In the United States, the standard range is comprised of SE, HSE and HSE Luxury derivatives, with an optional Black Design Packages available on all variants. All SE models feature 19-inch alloy wheels, leather upholstery, four-mode Terrain Response system(4) and two-zone automatic climate control. The HSE trim adds satellite navigation(8), 20-inch alloy wheels and LED headlamps. The HSE Luxury derivatives include Windsor Leather upholstery, 20-inch alloy wheels, air suspension, a panoramic sunroof and power third row seats as standard.
Based on the 2014 Discovery Vision Concept, the latest Land Rover Discovery features key elements of the model’s DNA integrated with intelligent new packaging solutions. The traditional stepped roofline is juxtaposed to brand new jewel-like headlamps, the raked windshield, the daytime running lamps and a new one-piece tailgate that allows for a more sporting rear design. Furthermore, the all-new Discovery is the most aerodynamic Discovery yet, with a drag coefficient from 0.35 contributing to improved efficiency and NVH reductions. A variety of 18 different exterior paint options are available for this model as well as a choice of 12 alloy wheel designs ranging from 19- to 22-inches.
The $73,950Discovery is powered by 254HP 3.0-liter turbocharged V-6 diesel engine, badged Td6, which delivers stronger performance than before and the benchmark 0-60mph sprint takes only 7.7 seconds (0-100km/h in 8.1 seconds)(14). With a significant 443 lb. ft. of torque on offer from just 1,750 rpm, the new Td6 diesel delivers relaxed cruising refinement and towering capability over a variety of terrains.
The supercharged 3.0-liter V6 petrol engine develops 332 lb. ft. of torque and powers the fifth generation Discovery from 0-60mph in 6.9 seconds (0-100km/h in 7.1 seconds).
