A production-ready prototype of the 2018 Land Rover Discovery is spied once again, but in contrast to some earlier testing models we saw, this one discovers really everything. Plus, it gets this really interesting camouflage, which looks quite impressive and points out the best parts of the upcoming LR5.
2018 Land Rover Discovery: Exterior and Interior
As you may notice, Land Rover’s new generation mid-size SUV will borrow plenty of details from its smaller sibling – the LR Discovery Sport. Still, the bigger brother looks more powerful and dynamic, which is pretty normal, because the larger proportions. However, in contrast to the similar bodywork, both the front and rear styling is quite unique. Well, not completely unique, but inspired by the amazing Discovery Vision Concept.
The new interior design will be really amazing, and we dear to say, maybe the best in class. The manufacturer will add a pretty large 10.2-inch touchscreen infotainment system, and also Land Rover- Jaguar’s distinctive gear selector button. Still, the most impressive part of the cab is the overall design, which will exude luxury and premium materials. Moreover, the carmaker will bring the SVX model that will be quite outstanding inside and out.
Engine Options and Transmission
The ultra-handsome 2018 Land Rover Discovery will be available in North America with just one engine. It will be a 3.0-liter inline turbocharged mill, which can deliver between 270 and 500 horsepower. At this point we can’t say what amount of power will get the new Discovery. The European model will also feature an amazing diesel engine. The new oil-burner will develop 237 horsepower and 367 lb-ft of torque, so it will be really capable. At the end of the range, you will find a base 2.0-liter inline-4 option. No matter what you choose, you will get a standard eight-speed automatic transmission.
The impressive SUV seems to be ready, so we think that the manufacturer could introduce it at the upcoming 2016 Paris Motor Show. On the other hand, the US fans will see it at the next Los Angeles Auto Show in November.
