Next-Generation Land Rover Discovery

Land Rover Publishes An Image of Next Discovery... And That's About It

Auto show season is upon us. How do we know this? Automakers are beginning to send out teasers or revealing their new vehicles before the various shows.

Case in point is Land Rover which has dropped the first image of the next-generation Discovery. From the image, the next Discovery has lost the boxiness that has been its trademark since it was first introduced in the late eighties. The front end is softer with rounded corners and a narrow grille.

"New Discovery redefines the large SUV. Land Rover’s design and engineering teams have revolutionised the Discovery DNA to create a highly desirable, extremely versatile and hugely capable premium SUV," said Land Rover design chief Gerry McGovern in a statement.

Land Rover is keeping a lot of details close to their chest on the Discovery before its debut at the Paris Motor Show later this month. But we have some guesses as to what it will feature.

  • Powered by JLR's Ingenium engine family
  • Latest version of the InTouch infotainment system
  • Seating for up to seven passengers

Land Rover is expected to launch the Discovery in the U.S. in mid-2017.
