  • Land Rover Discovery SVX concept, 2017 Frankfurt auto show

    Land Rover's Special Vehicle Operations team has less to do than initially planned. Land Rover scrapped plans for an ultra-opulent Range Rover SV Coupe in late January, and now we learn that the hardcore Discovery SVX off-roader is no longer headed to production. Autocar reported the model's death on Friday, though Jaguar-Land Rover spokesman Nathan Hoyt told Motor Authority the final decision was made months ago. The brand quietly sent a bulletin to customers who had placed orders for the Discovery SVX to explain the model was no longer planned. Notably, the SUV added JLR's supercharged...

  • 2017 Land Rover Discovery

    Halfway up a wall of rock that our shiny orange 2017 Land Rover Discovery was expected to climb—using what's basically off-road cruise control, no less—rested a decked-out long-wheelbase Defender 110. Even without its meaty off-road rubber and a winch, this Defender, a member of Land Rover's corporate fleet, was a drool-worthy reminder of this brand's unparalleled four-by-four heritage. In the southern Utah desert landscape, the chunky utility vehicle that has only incrementally changed since the 1940s looked at home. When I remarked to the Land Rover-provided guide, dressed in...

  • 2017 Land Rover Discovery, 2016 Paris auto show

    The Discovery is back. Land Rover will revive the nameplate it retired in the 2005 model year, while it sends the LR4 nameplate to the archives. The new Discovery will team up with the Discovery Sport on the more rugged side of the Land Rover brand, while the luxury side of the house continues to purvey the Range Rovers--including RR Sport and Evoque. Compared with rivals like the BMW X5, Mercedes GLE-Class, and Audi Q7, the Discovery has a tougher reputation to live up to, given that the original plowed through ruts from Malaysia to Belize. In terms of styling, it's a softer, more...
