Land Rover has opened the order books on the 2014 Discovery, which somes with a new look and lower CO2 emissions.
For 2014, Discovery has been given a new ‘face’ and numerous detail exterior changes. A new 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.
In recognition of the Discovery’s established identity, the refreshed exterior design for 2014 also incorporates a change of identity for the vehicle in many markets.
For the first time the name ‘Discovery’ name replaces Land Rover on the bonnet and the number '4' will be removed from the tailgate leaving just the word Discovery.
Engine badging moves from the tailgate to an ingot mounted on each of the front doors. This sidebadging will reflect the engine type and appear as SDV6 in the UK market. In the USA and the Middle East the vehicle’s badging will remain as previous models.
The 2014 Discovery will continue to be available with the 256hp 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.
The new range of driver assistance, comfort and safety features for the 2014 Discovery include: wade sensing (a technology unique to Land Rover), blind spot monitoring, closing vehicle sensing, reverse traffic detection and T-junction cameras.
To align the 2014 Discovery with other Range Rover vehicles, it will be available with Meridian premium audio. The standard system features eight speakers and 380 Watts of power, while the Meridian Surround system produces 825 Watts output and features 17 speakers.
