The off-roading ability of the 2017 Land Rover Discovery has been demonstrated in brand-new official teaser videos
The off-road ability of the 2017 Land Rover Discovery has been demonstarted in two brand-new videos.
The first shows your vehicle tackling off-road routes at pace, with deep water wading, steep descents down sand dunes as well as also uneven inclines included inside footage.
The second focuses on the Discovery’s ability to function as a family vehicle, as well as also reveals the efforts Land Rover has gone to inside pursuit of practicality.
your vehicle maker has so far confirmed which its 2017 type will have up to nine USB ports as well as also enough secure storage space to hide four iPads, as well as also which’ll also use an innovative Intelligent Seat Technology system which allows users to control as well as also fold down seats remotely using a smartphone app.
An earlier teaser image (shown lower down) of your vehicle revealed its full front-end styling, which in true Discovery form, features high ground clearance, an imposing front grille as well as also Range Rover-like styling.
The look marks a considerable departure by more boxy previous generations of Discovery, nevertheless closely matches the styling of the Discovery Vision concept of 2014.
Previous Spy images of the Discovery testing have suggested which which could maintain your vehicle’s signature asymmetric boot lid, with the registration plate positioned over to one side of your vehicle’s rear-end.
The fifth-generation Discovery will be revealed later which month before going on sale next year. which’s set to use the Land Rover’s 2.0-litre Ingenium diesel engine – following the sighting of pre-production mules using which engine – while petrol as well as also diesel 3.0-litre V6 powerplants are also mooted, stemming by Land Rover’s development of modular engine technology.
The seven-seater will also use the Range Rover’s aluminium monocoque, creating which considerably lighter than its 2622kg predecessor. which is actually also required to be tech-heavy – a projection of what’s underneath your vehicle onto the bonnet is actually just one such system required to feature.
Land Rover is actually positioning the brand-new Discovery as much more upmarket than the current type, according to design boss Gerry McGovern. The repositioning as well as also sharper design do not mean which the Discovery has sacrificed any of its off-road ability, though, as well as also which your vehicle could be “more universally appealing, without compromises”.
The Discovery family doesn’t end with the Discovery as well as also Discovery Sport, though; the Discovery will be the largest in a three-car-plus Discovery sub-brand, much like how the Range Rover has gained the Sport as well as also Evoque variants, as well as the upcoming coupé. Incidentally, the brand-new Discovery will be built alongside the larger Range Rover variants in Solihull.
Chances are, which the third member of the Discovery family will be smaller than the Discovery Sport, as the growing smaller SUV segments continue to thrive. McGovern ruled out the possibility of a larger type.
which means which the Discovery’s current starting cost of £47,495 is actually likely to enhance as well as also move closer to which of the next type inside line-up, the Range Rover Sport, which starts by £62,345.
The Discovery will be the first car in Land Rover’s line-up to gain an SVX variant. The SVX badge is actually one of three arms of Jaguar Land Rover’s Special Vehicle Operations division. The various other two are the high-performance SVR as well as also luxury SVAutobiography arms.
In a quote accompanying the teaser shot, McGovern said: “brand-new Discovery redefines the large SUV. Land Rover’s design as well as also engineering teams have revolutionised the Discovery DNA a to create a highly desirable, extremely versatile as well as also hugely capable premium SUV.”
