The 2014 Land Rover Discovery gains a refreshed exterior, start-stop fuel saving technology and interior upgrades. Some badging will remain the same in the Middle East and the United States while the UK gets lots of sparkly upgrades. The audio system is improved along with the addition of blind spot monitoring, reverse traffic detection, closing vehicle sensing and T-junction cameras.
Check out the review for the Range Rover Evoque (here).
“The hugely popular Discovery continues to move from strength to strength and the addition of improvements in fuel economy and emissions underpins our commitment to delivering power with sustainability. As one of the world’s most stylish, capable and versatile SUVs, the Discovery is the perfect vehicle for people who enjoy living an active lifestyle to the full,” said Land Rover Global Brand Director, John Edwards. – – Land Rover Media
Another item we will not be receiving in the United States (at least, no word on adding this to a future engine roster) is the lauded 3-liter V6 diesel.
“Underlining Land Rover’s commitment to power with sustainability, the 2014 Discovery will continue to be available with the class-leading 256PS 3.0 SDV6 – with CO2 emissions reduced from 230g/km to 213g/km, and fuel consumption improved to 35.3mpg. All models are equipped with an eight-speed ZF automatic transmission.” – – Land Rover Media
The most noticeable upgrade to the 2014 Land Rover Discovery is the nose of the vehicle. New LEDs, headlight and grill design update the overall look. It now looks more like its Rover brethren. That’s not a bad thing and I’m glad to see the ring of LEDs gone… it looked like an afterthought.
“For 2014, Discovery has been given a new ‘face’ and numerous detail exterior changes. A new front grille, new front bumper, new headlamp design, new daytime running lights with a distinctive LED signature, plus two new alloy wheel designs, further enhance the Discovery’s appearance. To give vehicles a heightened level of distinction, the optional ‘Black Design Pack’ remains available for 2014 models, with revised detailing, plus 20-inch black alloy wheels.” – – Land Rover Media
I can’t wait to test one!
