2017 Land Rover Discovery Arrives In LA Looking For Big Adventurous Families

The new Land Rover Discovery crawled its way to the LA Motor Show, ahead of a mid-2017 launch in the US market.

The new seven-seater SUV brings some clever features in each roomy interior as well as some significant improvements over its ageing predecessor, mostly thanks to its modern aluminum architecture.

That last bit allowed the new Discovery to drop around 480kg (1,058lbs) off its weight which combined with the modern engine range allows it to score better fuel economy and lower CO2 emissions.

The cabin is said to offer room for seven adults, with Land Rover letting you fold the seats via a smartphone app, all the cubbies you could ask for plus the latest connectivity features, courtesy of the company’s InControl Touch Pro infotainment system.

Customers in the US will get to choose between a supercharged 3.0-litre V6 petrol with 335hp and a 3.0-litre V6 diesel with 254hp, with Land Rover promising up to 14 percent better fuel economy for the petrol model.

And because this is a proper Land Rover, the new Discovery comes with a 283mm (11,1 inches) ground clearance, with a maximum wading depth of 900mm (35.4 inches). A full suite of electronic systems are also present to help the new Disco to drive over the biggest off-road challenges.

Pricing for the new Land Rover Discovery is set at $49,900 MSRP, with the first cars expected to hit the US showroom floors in mid-2017.
