This isn’t the first time we saw a prototype of the 2018 Land Rover Discovery, but it’s the first video we have. The amazing crossover SUV is spied testing on the Nürburgring, so you can actually see what this baby can do.
2018 Land Rover Discovery: Engine Options
The testing model is pretty quick, which isn’t some surprise for us, because there is a new Jaguars 3.0-liter supercharged engine under the hood. We have no the official figures, but the mill should produce at least 340 horsepower and 332 lb-ft of torque, which is more than enough power for the outstanding performance. Moreover, the vehicle is using a new and ultra-light PLA underpinning, which will additionally boost the abilities of the brilliant SUV. Except of this option, the British car manufacturer will likely offer a base 4-cylinder unit and some kind of hybrid, while the range-topping SVR model should use a 5.0-liter supercharged V8. Believe it or no, the most powerful V8 drivetrain will deliver 550 horsepower and 502 pound-feet of torque. All the engines will be paired to an eight-speed automatic transmission that will power two or all four wheels.
Unofficially, the 2018 Land Rover Discovery could be introduced at the upcoming 2016 Paris Motors Show, while the US model might make its debut at the next Detroit Motor Show.
