Land Rover Discovery 4 comes with two optional engines: 3.0 liter twin turbo diesel and a 5.0 liter V8 petrol unit. While the Terrain Response system and the chassis system has been improved, Land Rover Discovery 4 also comes with new 6-speed adaptive transmission.
With the interior offers a seven-seat space, Land Rover Discovery 4 also comes with LED running lights, revised lights, and also a new front-end.
Land Rover Discovery 4 comes featuring a surround camera system, Keyless Entry, high beam assist, tow assist, and gradient release.
The new, fourth generation of Land Rover’s supremely versatile seven-seat vehicle gains a new name, Discovery 4, to go with its powerful and highly efficient new TDV6 diesel engine, fresh exterior identity and more premium cabin. The model’s class-leading breadth of capability is extended even further with dynamic improvements, for both on-road and off-road driving, and the addition of user-friendly new technologies and features.
Land Rover Discovery 4 - Overview:
Two new engines, a 3.0 liter twin turbo diesel and 5.0 liter V8 petrol, both providing greater performance with improved fuel economy and reduced emissions,
On-road dynamics transformed by comprehensive chassis system developments and a new super-smooth 6-speed adaptive transmission
Updates to Land Rover’s award-winning Terrain Response system reinforce best-in-class all-terrain performance
Fresh exterior design includes smoother new front end and revised lights, including LEDs
All-new interior design delivers a more premium and functional seven-seat space
User-friendly new features include surround camera system, gradient release, tow assist, high beam assist and Keyless Entry
“The outgoing Discovery 3 has well over 100 international awards to its name. But we’ve found ways to improve virtually every aspect of the vehicle’s design and engineering - some subtle, some major. New design signals comprehensive engineering change under the skin, and now gives us the Discovery 4,” says Phil Popham, Land Rover Managing Director.
“The new interior not only has a much more premium look and feel, it’s also gained improvement to its functionality. The new console inclines towards the driver, the switchgear and controls fall more readily to hand, and new LED Interior Mood Lighting in HSE models helps make the cabin a more pleasant and more easily used space after dark. We’ve made the interior environment more premium too, with smoother surfaces, softer materials and close attention to critical details such as stitching,” says Gerry McGovern, Land Rover Design Director.
“The changes and upgrades for Discovery 4 transform many aspects of the previous generation, at the same time as enhancing the flexibility and versatility for which Discovery is famous. It can carry huge loads in its spacious interior, climb mountains, cruise across continents, haul trailers of up to 3.5 tonnes, or transport seven family and friends in comfort. I can’t think of a more versatile vehicle anywhere,” says Phil Popham.
The new Discovery is packed with e-TERRAIN TECHNOLOGIES aimed at reducing fuel consumption and reducing CO2 emissions. Both the new 3.0 liter twin turbo diesel and 5.0 liter V8 direct injection petrol engine were designed from the outset to deliver class-leading fuel economy and improved low-end torque.
e-TERRAIN TECHNOLOGIES in summary:
Engine calibration optimised
Lower engine idle speed
Reduced torque-converter slip
Higher torque, allowing longer gearing
Intelligent Power System Management (IPSM) including smart regenerative charging
Clutched air conditioning pump to reduce parasitic losses (Diesel only)
The new generation Discovery 4 will go on sale in Australian late 4th quarter 2009, with pricing, specification and model line up, still to be confirmed.
