Will there be any changes for the upcoming 2018 Land Rover Discovery? With some leaked images of the Discovery with some hidden camouflage, it seems that the company will be doing some tweaks on the vehicle. Despite the good looking current design, there is nothing wrong if the company has decided that they are going to come with new updates.
History and Existence
The Discovery is basically a pretty new line, released in 2014 to replace the Freelander. The Discovery comes with refreshed styles and different chassis. When it was first introduced in 2014, it was built on the modular chassis, which has been used in the Evoque. Thanks to this platform, the Discovery has this more exclusive and premium feel. Naturally, the Discovery is far better than the Freelander. From the design and construction alone, it is bigger, better, stronger, more expensive, and also more performance to tackle any road condition, even with the rough terrain.
However, when compared to the Freelander, the offroad ability is less in Discovery although you have to admit that Discovery Sport has become one of the premium and exclusive crossover in the segment with similar power and performance. A lot of people are expecting the newest updates for the 2018 Land Rover Discovery although the company hasn’t been frank and straightforward about it.
According to most auto experts and enthusiasts, it is most likely that the new 2018 Land Rover Discovery Sport will be getting more engine options and also trim levels. A lot of people are even sure that Land Rover will be targeting the different trims, focusing on the high end variant so they can compete against X3 M or the Macan Turbo. If that’s the matter, the new Discovery may be sold for more than $55,000 which means that it will be at least $5000 more expensive that the current one.
Since the latest release has brought quite a lot of differences to the platform, there shouldn’t be too much or too drastic change on the exterior area. It seems that the new 2018 Land Rover Discovery Sport will be coming with redesigned center intake and bigger fog lamps. If the rumored R type is true, it is highly likely that it will come with bigger wheel arches, lower suspension, and also aggressive bumpers on the front and back.
Exact pricing and release date for this new Discovery hasn’t been announced but it should be soon. Let’s wait for further info for the new 2018 Land Rover Discovery Sport.
