The Land Rover Discovery SUV has been raising the bar for all-terrain capability and everyday versatility for 30 years. To celebrate three decades of adventure with the ultimate go-anywhere SUV, Land Rover has revealed the new Discovery Landmark Edition.
The Discovery has been the choice of adventurers and families since its arrival at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 1989 and the new Landmark Edition showcases everything it means to be a Discovery, with upgraded standard features and subtle design enhancements.
Taking the well-appointed SE as a starting point, the Landmark Edition adds the Dynamic Pack, which includes a more purposeful front bumper design and Narvik Black mesh grille and fender vents. Narvik Black nameplate scripting on the bonnet and tailgate is also joined by unique Landmark badging on the tailgate.
The Discovery Landmark Edition offers petrol and diesel powertrain options, ranging from clean and efficient engines to more performance-focused models.
There is no doubting Discovery’s credentials over the past 30 years as the ultimate all-terrain SUV. Not only has it tackled the Amazon jungle, Madagascan wilderness and Siberian snowdrifts as part of the Camel Trophy, it has also pulled a 110-tonne road train across the Australian Outback and provided a Red Cross emergency mobile command centre for disaster response.
Combining all-terrain capability with seven-seat versatility, intelligent seat fold technology and smart storage throughout the vehicle’s premium interior, the Discovery family has claimed more than 300 global awards and notched up 1.7 million sales since 1989.
Traditional Discovery capability comes in the form of All Terrain Progress Control, which enables drivers to set and maintain a steady speed in challenging conditions. It is available alongside Terrain Response 2, offering a number of driving modes designed for tackling challenging ground conditions. Alongside a class-leading wading depth of 900mm and a 3,500kg towing capacity, Discovery delivers unrivalled breadth of capability.
Coupled with Land Rover’s comprehensive range of accessories, which includes a Pet Pack designed to improve comfort for canine companions, it is easy to see why Discovery is revered as the ultimate go-anywhere family SUV.
