You say Land Rover and you instantly say sport utility vehicles. But the Land Rover is no ordinary SUV. It is luxurious by all means. And taking into account the origin country, Great Britain, it can’t be otherwise. The British brand will soon present the 2014 Land Rover Discovery facelift on the occasion of the Frankfurt Motor Show.
The facelift model mirrors its predecessor, the modifications being slightly observable. The Land Rover Discovery features an updated front bumper, grille and headlights having some other kind of LED daytime running lights. The thing that will surely make the difference is that the traditional “Land Rover” badge on the hood has been replaced by a “Discovery” logo. The set of alloy wheels have also suffered changes.
The 2014 Land Rover Discovery is powered by the already familiar 3.0-liter SDV6 engine that produces 256 HP (188 kW) at 4,000 rpm and 600 Nm (442 lb-ft) at 2,000 rpm. However, the mill is now more eco-friendly once the CO2 emissions have been lowered from 230 g/km to 213 g/km and the fuel consumption has been improved to 35.3 mpg UK (29.3 mpg US or 8 liters / 100 km). It is linked to an eight speed automatic transmission and it allows the SUV to run the 0-60 mph (0-96 km/h) in 8.8 seconds before reaching a maximum speed of 112 mph (180 km/h).
The 2014 Land Rover Discovery is specially equipped with extra goodies to make the driver’s experience easier. The future client will be very fortunate to have blind spot monitoring, wade sensing, reverse traffic detection and T- junction cameras. And as a bonus, music lovers are free to choose the new 825-watt, 17-speaker Meridian Surround system. Whether or not the changes are enough for the critics, the primary destination of the vehicle remains unchanged and as an off-roader it will certainly do its job just fine.
