Motor Trend released their 2005 SUV of the year winner today and the Land Rover Discovery replacement, the LR3, takes home the golden calipers. Citing "on-road refinement and off-road ability" the LR3 beat out competitors like the Ford Escape Hybrid, Chevy Equinox, Ford Freestyle, Nissan Pathfinder, Jeep Grand Cherokee and the Infiniti QX45. "There isn't a sport/utility in the world that will cover the terrain as quietly, confidently or comfortably," notes a member of the Motor Trend staff.
