It should come as no great surprise that Land Rover is planning to group its lineup into three "families": one luxury lineup centered around the Range Rover, another utilitarian range around the Defender and a third somewhere in the middle centered around the Discovery. But just how many models will form each of those groups?
Land Rover Discovery Vision Concept
Land Rover unveiled its Discovery Vision concept (pictured above) at the New York Auto Show. Now the company has announced that the first vehicle to wear some of the concept's styling is going to be the new Discovery Sport. The Sport is the newest member of a whole new family of Disco models that LR has in the works.
With very few exceptions, production off-road vehicles all mount their engine up in front. The trouble is that the hood can obstruct the view to the terrain ahead. Leave it to Land Rover, then, to come up with a novel solution.
At the Geneva Motor Show barely a month ago, Land Rover began teasing its plan to launch a new Discovery (currently known as the LR4 in the US). Now it looks like it's going to be just a few weeks before we actually get to see the new truck, at least in concept form. The British automaker has released a new teaser image and trailer for the Discovery Vision Concept that is debuting at the New York Auto Show, on April 16.
