Below Average: On-road ride quality
Consensus: A fresh take on off-road luxury
A legendary off-roader for modern times.
Fresh-faced, fuel efficient and nimble, the Land Rover Discovery, all-new last year, is a far cry from the LR4 it replaces, yet still stays loyal to Land Rover tradition. Although slightly larger and roomier than its predecessor, the Discovery’s all-new platform renders it significantly lighter. But the Disco's newfound agility and refined highway ride do not take anything away from this SUV's best-in-class off-road capability, and electronic aids make it even easier to go exploring. In addition to a gasoline-powered V6 engine, the Discovery also offers a V6 diesel engine.
From our full review of the 2018 Land Rover Discovery: "That this mid-level luxury SUV reminds us so much of being behind the wheel of the larger, more expensive Range Rover speaks volumes about the 2018 Discovery’s design. Light years ahead of the old LR4, the Discovery not only rides and drives better than its predecessor, it is vastly quieter inside."
Terrain Response 2
The Discovery is one of the best off-road SUVs out there, but Land Rover has made the vehicle's capability easy to harness for your specific driving needs. The Discovery uses the latest version of Terrain Response, which has a dial with icons that show different types of terrain, such as snow, rocks or ruts. Simply match the type of ground you want to cover with the icon, turn the knob, and Terrain Response 2 does the rest.

Towing Made Easier
The Discovery can tow up to 8,201 pounds, and available features make towing less stressful. Tow Hitch Assist uses the surround camera system to display guidelines as you bring the Discovery closer to a trailer's tow ball. When it comes time to park what you’re towing, Advanced Tow Assist makes it easier to back the Discovery and trailer into place with more intuitive steering control via the Terrain Response 2 knob. With Rear Height Adjust, you can use switches to lower the trailer height when loading or unloading gear.
Build and Price
The Discovery has a starting price of about $53,000, topping out at about $89,000. Build and price your own Land Rover Discovery to unlock its Kelley Blue Book Fair Purchase Price, 5-Year Cost to Own and more.
