Land Rover announces the upgraded 2014 Discovery. The multi-award winning vehicle gets a new look, new badging, new fuel stretching technology, new single-speed drivetrain, improved audio systems and a new range of comfort and safety features to broaden its appeal even further.
For 2014, Discovery has been given a new ‘face’ and numerous detail exterior changes. A new front grille, new front bumper, new headlamp design, new daytime running lights with a distinctive LED signature, plus new alloy wheel designs, further enhance the Discovery’s appearance.
For 2014 models, (3.0 Diesel SE) buyers will be offered a four-wheel drive system with the new single-speed transfer box. The carry-over twin-speed transfer box which offers high and low range for the most demanding off-road conditions, will be standard on the 3.0 Diesel HSE
The single-speed transfer box acknowledges that some customers do not need to fully exploit the Discovery’s off-road capabilities. Mechanically controlled, it weighs 18kg less than the two-speed box, features a Torsen differential and provides a 42/58 percent front-rear torque split.
To align the 2014 Discovery with other Land Rover vehicles, it will be available with a Meridian premium audio. The standard system features 11 speakers and 380 Watts of power.
