The 2017 Land Rover Discovery is one of the most eagerly anticipated cars of next year, and one of the most talked about.
That’s because there are a lot of fresh ideas in the next model of the iconic 4×4, including advanced technology for driver assistance, as well as an aluminium construction which slashes a remarkable 1,000lb off the vehicle weight.
Made of Tough Stuff
Don’t let the new lightweight form of the Land Rover Discovery fool you into thinking we’ll be introduced to a model that has settled for half measures. On the contrary, the towing capacity has been upped to 8,201lb, coupled with an advanced tow assist that promises to make reversing even easier. Under the hood lies a 340hp, supercharged, 3.0 litre, V-6 engine, and you can expect a ZF 8-speed automatic gearbox. With the diesel engine also available, 254hp delivers 443lb-ft of torque from 1,750rpm.
A World Apart
The reason the 2017 Land Rover Discovery threatens to redefine the SUV can be found in the wide array of extras and innovations you can look forward to inside the vehicle.
The seven full size adult seats are configurable from your smart phone, be it an Android or Apple, and a total of nine USB ports, six charging points, as well as a 3G in vehicle Wi-Fi hotspot that can support up to eight users mean that your car can become a moving hub for powering, storing and playing your devices.
There is even a dynamic design pack available, which allows you to ‘pimp’ the 2017 Land Rover Discovery, for which parts will be available from CWS 4×4, with a sporty steering wheel and leather upholstery.
The Dynamic Design Pack adds leather upholstery and sporty steering wheel and pedals. It can all be controlled from the fabulous nerve centre known as the Land Rover InControl Touch Pro infotainment system which includes a 10-inch touch screen. To say the 2017 Land Rover Discovery is life changing might be stretching it a bit, but it certainly has the capability to revolutionise your daily journeys.
