  • 2018 Land Rover Discovery

    Land Rover’s fifth-generation Discovery arrived on the scene earlier this year as a 2017 model. The vehicle replaced the LR4 and introduced a radical new look as well as new levels of refinement and technology. Now entering its second year of production, Land Rover continues the momentum with the introduction of additional standard features, although these have come at a cost. The starting price for the 2018 Discovery comes in at $53,085, which is up on the $50,985 starting price of the 2017 model. Both figures include destination.

  • 2,000,000th Land Rover Defender

It also confirmed that the next-generation Defender is still firmly part of the Land Rover plan for the U.S., though it hasn't confirmed an...
