Land Rover Discovery Landmark (1)

  • Greater on-road presence with the addition of the Discovery Landmark and Graphite Special Editions
  • Distinctive exterior design features enhance fourth generation Land Rover Discovery
  • World-renowned all-terrain capability and versatility retained

Land Rover continues to broaden the appeal of the Discovery with the launch of two new special editions – the Landmark and the Graphite(Dependent on market; Wade Sensing and Discovery Graphite not available in US). New distinctive exterior design features to both editions enhance the design of the fourth generation Discovery, while unique interior touches to the Landmark bring more luxury and exclusivity.

These special editions give the Discovery even greater on-road presence than ever before. Available to order from the end of October, they will be seen on the roads from January 2016 onwards.

“The appeal of the Land Rover Discovery has just got even greater. We have launched two new special editions – the Landmark and Graphite, which offer the customer greater on-road presence and enhanced comfort to complement the Discovery’s existing versatility and capability attributes,” says Finbar McFall, Jaguar Land Rover Product Marketing Director.

Landmark

The Discovery Landmark builds on the generous specification of the HSE derivative* with new interior and exterior features that offer the customer a more premium and unique look and feel to their Discovery.

The exterior upgrade sees the addition of full length roof rails in a bright finish that highlight the familiar stepped roof design of the Discovery. Distinctive black fender vents, grille and mirror caps complement silver bonnet and tailgate badges, alongside Landmark badging to the side and rear to further distinguish this model. 20-inch 5-split spoke alloy wheels complete the design.

The Landmark is available in a limited range of five body colours, including Zanzibar which has been exclusively reserved for the Landmark edition and is not available on any other Discovery. The other four available body colours are Waitomo Grey, Santorini Black, Yulong White and Indus Silver.

Enhancements to interior refinement come as standard inside the Landmark with the addition of Windsor Leather seats and the Extended Leather Pack throughout, furnishing the dashboard, door casings and fascia. The interior is purposefully limited to three colourways – Ebony, Almond and Tan. The latter is offered for the first time ever in a Discovery, with Tan Windsor Leather Seats complemented by Ebony door casings and fascia and a Straight Grained Walnut veneer trim finisher.

Additionally, the customer can choose from a selection of standard and optional steering wheels to complement the choice of veneer. This includes the Grand Black Lacquer or Straight Grained Walnut Wood & Leather steering wheel.

The Discovery Landmark starts from €64,950.

Graphite

The Discovery Graphite builds on the success of the Black Pack and introduces a modern and distinctive look to the model range with striking finishes. A grey Graphite finish to the fender vents and grille, which also sports a gloss black and lighter grey frame, blend with existing grey highlights appointed to the door handles and the Discovery badging to the bonnet and tailgate. Exclusive to the Graphite is the 19-inch 7-split spoke alloy wheel in a high gloss dark grey as standard. The customer can choose between a spectrum of nine body colours and three interior colourways*.

The Discovery Graphite starts from €57,000.

Efficient technologies

The optional Land Rover InControl Apps* complements the Discovery’s existing infotainment system to provide the ultimate in-car connectivity. It brings the convenience, familiarity and original look and feel of compatible smartphone apps into the owner’s vehicle, which are displayed and controlled from the vehicle’s touchscreen. The customer can find parking spaces, stream their favourite music or simply locate the nearest hotel for that invaluable pit-stop.

The acclaimed Terrain Response® and Hill Descent Control drive technologies ensure optimal and responsive driving across any terrain as standard. Add in the choice of the single-speed transfer box or twin-speed – the latter offering high and low range for the most demanding off-road conditions, and optional Wade Sensing™* technology to alert the driver to deep water, and the Discovery is equipped to tackle whatever path the customer decides to travel.

The Discovery has been at the top of The Caravan Club judging panel’s list of capable towing vehicles consistently for the last nine years in the UK, recently scooping three top honours, including overall winner. To support the Discovery’s award-winning towing capacity of 3,500kg, Trailer Stability Assist is provided as standard to help hitch a trailer to the tow bar and the optional Tow Hitch Assist acts as an extra pair of eyes as the vehicle is maneuvered into position. Safety and security options – such as Blind Spot Monitoring, Closing Vehicle Sensing and Reverse Traffic Detection, offer the driver further assistance when out on the road.

A full 7-seater with stadium seating and 2,600-litre stowage capacity, the Discovery can be reconfigured and equipped to fit seamlessly into the changing lifestyle of its owner. Its versatile interior with variable seating and a range of essential hard-wearing and practical accessories, ensure everyone travels in premium class comfort without compromise. The split tailgate and height adjustable air suspension are an added bonus for easier loading and unloading.

The Land Rover Discovery continues to drive power and all-terrain capability with efficient diesel and petrol engine options when matched with fuel-stretching Stop/Start** technology and the refined ZF 8-speed automatic transmission.

For key petrol markets, the 3.0-litre V6 Supercharged generates 340PS@6,500rpm (250kW) with 450Nm of torque and combined CO2 emissions from 269g/km. Fuel consumption stands at 24.6mpg (11.5 l/100km).

The 211PS (155kW) 3.0-litre TDV6 remains the EU6 diesel engine entry level option, delivering 36.7mpg (7.7l/100km) and a CO2 figure from 203g/km on a combined cycle. The higher-powered 256PS (188kW) 3.0-litre SDV6 gives equivalent fuel consumption and CO2 figures.

The Land Rover Discovery retains its position as the ultimate vehicle for all-terrain capability and versatility, with over 1,160,000 retail sales and 225 international awards since its launch in 1989.

2015 Land Rover LR4 / Discovery brings more luxury & InControl – is this the last split branded Land Rover?

Whenever a vehicle generation is getting to the end it’s life there always seem to be a flourish of upgrades and additions that we hadn’t seen before.  It’s sad to see it go but the person buying this new year model should be very happy.

While this probably isn’t the last LR4, we’re going to be at the point soon where there won’t be any split branding between the US and the rest of the world, I for one can’t wait!

Land Rover Announces 2014 U.S. Model Lineup

(MAHWAH, N.J.) – September 12, 2013 – The 2014 model year continues the most dynamic product development and introduction period in the brand’s history. An all-new Range Rover Sport is introduced, based on the all-new aluminum-intensive Range Rover that debuted for 2013. The Range Rover itself sees a significant increase in fuel efficiency for 2014 with the introduction of a new supercharged 3-liter V6 engine, for up to EPA-estimated 23 mpg in highway driving1, replacing the naturally aspirated 5-liter V8.

The Range Rover Evoque debuts one of the first nine-speed automatic transmissions in a passenger vehicle. The sporty Range Rover Evoque, the smallest and lightest Range Rover model, has become its worldwide best seller, with more than 170,000 sold in its’ first 18 months.

The Land Rover LR4 also replaces the 5-liter V8 with the 340hp supercharged V6, teamed to an 8-speed automatic. The Land Rover LR2, which received the 240hp turbocharged engine from the Range Rover Evoque for 2013, delivers pure Land Rover style in a compact model and adds infotainment upgrades for 2014.
