This off-road vehicle originally came in 1989. It is a mid-size luxury SUV, which is considered as one of the best-known and most popular models from this British manufacturer. Through these more than 25 years we have seen four generations of it. Current model was launched in 2009 and, according to the latest reports, it will be replaced very soon. By the end of year, we will see a new, redesigned, next generation of this legendary SUV, which will come as 2016 Land Rover Discovery. It will come with plenty of improvements, such as new exterior and interior look, new engines, new hi-tech features etc.
2016 Land Rover Discovery design
The 2016 Land Rover Discovery will come with plenty of significant changes. It will be completely redesigned. When it is about exterior look, big changes are expected. It should be the best looking model of the company so far. It will have very aggressive but at the same time also very stylish and elegant appearance. Although we still don’t have a complete look of new model, it is for sure that it will be hugely influenced by Discovery Vision Concept. However, some parts that are not considered as too much practical for serial production will be changed. This basically means that 2016 Range Rover Discovery will also use many design solutions from models like Range Rover Sport and Range Rover Evoque. Besides expected changes at the front and rear ends, it will also come with much different overall shape, which will be characterized by much more aerodynamic look. When it is about interior design, we still don’t know exact details. It is expected that the cabin of 2016 Discovery will be completely redesigned too. Expect to see new styling, new trims, better-quality materials (although current model already features extremely hi-quality materials), plenty of advanced drive assist systems, entertainment features etc.
2016 Land Rover Discovery engine
When it is about engines, it is expected that some of the units will carry over, while some will be replaced by new, more-advanced ones. It is expected that base 2016 Land Rover Discovery will use the same 3.0 liter V6 gasoline engine, which outputs 335 horsepower and 339 pound-feet of torque. New model will also come with one new engine, which will be very attractive to those economy-oriented drivers. It is a 2.0 liter 4-cylinder engine, which was introduced on new Evoque, which outputs 240 hp and 250 pound-feet of torque. Beside enough power, this engine will also offer excellent fuel economy. The 2016 Land Rover Discovery will also get new transmission. It is a 9-speed automatic transmission, which will deliver power to all wheels, already in standard package.
2016 Land Rover Discovery price and competition
It is expected that 2016 Land Rover Discovery won’t be much different from its predecessor, when it is about price. Current model starts at around 38.000 dollars. Main competitors will be models like Audi Q5 or Jaguar C-X17.
