New Land Rover Discovery Teased for Debut Later This Month

The 2016 Paris Motor Show will host the world premiere of the new Land Rover Discovery.

The British automaker has released a teaser image showing off the front end of the new Discovery, which will go on sale in the U.S. starting mid-2017. It will be a full-sized, seven-seat SUV and will join the existing Discovery Sport in offering versatility, capability, and technology in a luxury SUV.

Over the recent months, spy photographers have caught the new Discovery testing, revealing that it will give up some of its boxy design for a sleeker style.

While there aren’t very many details released yet on the new Discovery, expect it to weigh quite a bit less, thanks to a new aluminum platform. It will replace the LR4 nameplate in the North American market.

“The new Discovery redefines the large SUV,” said Gerry McGovern, Land Rover chief design officer. “Land Rover’s design and engineering teams have revolutionised the Discovery DNA to create a highly desirable, extremely versatile and hugely capable premium SUV.”
