About the Land Rover Discovery

Now in its fifth generation, the Land Rover Discovery combines off-road prowess and performance with exceptional efficiency like no other SUV in its class. Its standard 2.0L P300 i4 engine provides the perfect blend of power, fuel economy, and refinement. Equipped to handle the challenges of everyday life, the Discovery includes multiple storage cubbies, nine USB ports throughout the cabin, four-zone climate control, and a powered gesture tailgate. You’ll have room for up to five or even seven passengers thanks to the third-row seating option of HSE models. While never compromising on its superior off-road capabilities, the Land Rover Discovery still lets you enjoy its more luxurious and civilized personality.


What the Critics Say

The Discovery leverages Land Rover’s legendary go-anywhere reputation and backs it up by offering an optional two-speed transfer case and a locking rear differential for maximum overlanding freedom. There’s even a Wade mode that’s set up to improve the Discovery’s water-fording capability. Try that in your Porsche Cayenne or Volvo XC90.” — Car and Driver
The 3.0L models add the ability to finely adjust engine torque distribution between the front and rear axles, and Land Rover boasts that the Discovery can ford up to 35.4 inches of water without drowning. It can also tow up to 8,200 pounds. All of which means it remains a formidable, adventurous luxury SUV, albeit one the Land Rover team discovered opportunities to improve upon in mostly small ways.” — MotorTrend


What’s New for 2022

After a significant refresh last year, the Land Rover Discovery returns for 2022 essentially unchanged. Its compelling mixture of proven off-road performance capability combined with first-class comfort features helps to separate the dynamic Discovery from its competition.

Proven Design & Capable Performance

Crafted with a rugged yet modern design, the Discovery still hints at its outstanding capabilities with an assertive side profile along with perfectly-proportioned character lines stretching along its flanks. Instantly recognizable as a Land Rover, the Discovery has plenty of muscle to match its commanding appearance. You’ll have access to 355 horsepower from its optional 3.0L P360 i4 MHEV engine paired with the Terrain Response 2 system. Designed to constantly monitor road surface conditions, this system is able to automatically choose driving modes to deliver the best possible performance based on the situation. Thanks to a maximum towing capacity of up to 8,200 pounds, the Land Rover Discovery allows you to bring even your largest toys along for the journey.
