Land Rover Teases New Discovery

Land Rover has released the first official photo of the all-new Discovery. The front-end shot showcases a Discovery that ditches the boxy, ionic Discovery look we’re all familiar with in favor of some sweeping sheetmetal lines. The preview apparently serves as a precursor to a Discovery that will not be an evolution of the past.

“Land Rover’s design and engineering teams have revolutionized the Discovery DNA to create a highly desirable, extremely versatile and hugely capable premium SUV,” stated Gerry McGovern, the head of Land Rover’s design department, in a statement.

The fifth reincarnation of the Discovery is slated to go on sale next year. Like the previous Discovery, it is expected to seat up to seven in a very luxurious cabin featuring the latest technology. While this Discovery is also rumored to be the most off-road capable one ever, this time the Disco is filling the “leisure” pillar of Land Rover. Instead, the upcoming Defender will fulfill the hard-core off-road abilities in the Land Rover family.

Power for the new Discovery is expected to come from JLR’s new Ingenium four-cylinders and a more powerful V-6 alternative. A rumored hybrid option is apparently still on the table as well.

Expect the new Disco to be revealed at the Paris Motor Show sometime around September 28th.

    I loved the LR4. I liked the LR3, but it looked cheap unless fully optioned with body color moldings in the later years. The LR4 was a great looker. I'm more interested to see the new Defender. :)

    I'm going to miss the LR# vehicles. Their exterior designs were really interesting.
