Currently known in the United States as the LR3, the Land Rover Discovery is a comfortable sport utility vehicle from the Land Rover brand of the Ford Motor Company. This model has had three generations. It first made its public debut in the late 1980s. It has currently become the most popular model of the Land Rover for its competency during off road journeys. This vehicle was also introduced to the United Kingdom in 1989, and “Project Jay” was the company’s code name for the vehicle. At first, it was only made available as a three-door vehicle, however, come the following year, the vehicle now sported five doors.
The Series II Land Rover Discovery made its first public appearance in 1998. Its interior and exterior was redesigned to be less utilitarian, and was still quite very similar to the first series. Body paneling was done anew except for the rear door outer skin. Its rear body was actually extended so as to improve load space. Its overall off road abilities still remains impressive, and more relevant. It still used the same underpinnings as per the original Range Rover’s back in 1970. The third generation of this Land Rover Discovery vehicle became a reality as the Discovery 3, as the name is rendered by the Land Rover. It has become an entirely new design and additionally, it does not share a single component or part with the outgoing model. It bears with it still the traditional Land Rover style. Its functions dictate its look. It has lots of horizontal and vertical lines. The key features of the Discovery are still held intact that includes the stepped roofline and the steeply-raked windscreen.
Now, the Land Rover Discovery is a striking new member to the Land Rover family. So as to keep up with the customers’ lifestyles and needs, this vehicle has undergone over seven hundred changes so as to improve its styling, its ride and feel, and its quality, thus giving assurance that this vehicle would be worth their time and money. It has with it all-new interiors and colors. Certainly, the Land Rover Discovery’s original design has evolved so as to become highly refined, and so as to become the prestigious model that we know today. It is also very recognizable for its twin “pocket style” headlamps, a new front bumper and a new grilled. It still bears with it the style that is very convincingly from the Range Rover brand.
