2018 Land Rover Discovery Spied

The vehicle replaces the aging LR4 and is expected to go on sale in 2017, as a 2018 model. It will be the second model in Land Rover’s new “Discovery” family of vehicles, the first being the smaller Discovery Sport launched last year.

The Discovery is designed around Land Rover’s aluminum platform currently found in the Range Rover and Range Rover Sport SUVs. Known as the Premium Lightweight Architecture (PLA), the platform will ensure the vehicle is much lighter than the LR4, making it more fuel efficient and easier to handle.

In the engine department, look for a 6-cylinder unit to be the base option here in the United States—possibly a new inline-6 based on Jaguar Land Rover’s Ingenium design. In other markets, it’s likely a 2.0-liter inline-4 will serve as the base option and there should be a hybrid offered too. An 8-speed automatic transmission is expected to be standard across the range.
