Taking the Discovery SE as the starting point, the Discovery Landmark Edition adds the Dynamic Pack from the get-go. The more aggressive bumper up front is complemented by fog lights and the signature taillamps, privacy glass, and a fixed panoramic roof.
The contemporary looks of the SUV are rounded off by Windsor leather upholstery with contrast micropiping. Satin brushed aluminum on the center console, titanium mesh finishers, and the 380-watt Meridian Sound System complete the picture.
“Discovery has set the standard for all-terrain adventure for 30 years. Whether tackling jungles, mountains, or the school run, it has delivered at every turn with class-leading all-terrain capability and seven-seat versatility,” said Nick Collins, vehicle line director. “The Landmark Edition is a fitting celebration of the ultimate family SUV.”
Land Rover offers multiple choices in terms of powertrains, ranging from the SD4 turbo diesel with 240 PS to the SD6 turbo diesel with 306 PS. Customers who prefer gasoline can opt for the SI4, a 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder that outputs 300 ponies on full song.
Regardless of engine, the fifth generation of the Discovery comes with the ZF 8HP automatic transmission as standard. As of 2018, the luxurious SUV is manufactured in Nitra, Slovakia instead of Solihull, England. The British automaker decided on this switch over the inconsistencies of Brexit.
Although the higher-ups aren’t saying it loud and clear, Honda decided to shut down the Swindon assembly complex over this nuisance and because the plant isn't as efficient as it used to be in the not-so-distant past. To whoever is keeping count, 51.9 percent of Brits voted to leave the European Union in a referendum held on June 23rd, 2016.
