The much anticipated Land Rover’s updated Discovery will make its official debut, at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show that will commence on the 10th of September. The new 2014 Discovery receives quite a few changes to the exterior and interior. But before the official images were exposed, the SUV was spotted numerous times being road tested in the streets of Europe, without any camouflage. So many sources have already exposed the details of the looks and the engine. Going back in time, the Discovery has been one of the most sought after SUVs of the Land Rover lineup and an update will just make the consumers to want more of the SUV.
The popped hood will disclose a 3.0 liter SDV6 block with 245.4 BHP and 600 NM of Torque. Coupled with a ZF-8 speed automatic transmission this new SUV can go from 0-100 Kmph in just 9.3 seconds and has a top speed of 180 Kmph. This powerful engine can deliver a mileage of 12.5 Kmpl, which is because of the highly advanced ZF gearbox. The interior of the SUV will now have advanced versions of the standard features like, the automatic climate control, rear AC, one touch PW, tilt and telescopic steering, electric seats with memory, leather seats, music system and much more.
The Discovery's exterior is now re-born with a brand new front grille, redesigned headlamps, and restyled front bumper, two new alloy wheel designs, daytime running LEDs with characteristic cross, and many more. Not just that the SUV will be available in a ‘black design pack’ that will have reworked minutiae and huge 20 inch black on black alloy wheels. The standard ‘Land Rover’ text on the bonnet is now replaced by the ‘Discovery’ letters. Unlike other models of the SUV that has the generation code beside the name, the new SUV will only have the name ‘Discovery’ etched on the rear side without any generation codes.
