Land Rover Discovery Interior

The Land Rover Discovery interior is a comfortable haven where you can settle in and enjoy the journey as much as the destination. You have the option to decorate the cabin to your liking with eight different interior color combinations, including:

  • Vintage Tan/Ebony
  • Light Oyster/Espresso
  • Glacier/Ebony

You’ll also have several finishes to pick from that give your Discovery an additional layer of class, including Titanium mesh, Gloss Charcoal Oak veneer, or Dark Satin Brushed aluminum.

In the center stack, you can view important information on an available 10-inch HD touchscreen display. This whole center console area looks especially clean thanks to the rotary dial shifter that’s replaced the traditional lever gear shift. This feature gives you a bit more elbow room and declutters the center information center.

Land Rover Discovery Performance

The Land Rover Discovery works hard when it comes to performance, delivering on horsepower with two different engine options:

  • 3.0L Si6 gas engine: 340 horsepower, 332 lb-ft of torque
  • 3.0L Td6 diesel engine: 254 horsepower, 443 lb-ft of torque

The gas engine also has an 8,207-pound maximum towing capacity, while the diesel engine can tow up to 7,716 pounds when properly equipped.

To help keep your shift schedules efficient and your performance optimized, the Land Rover Discovery pairs its engines with an 8-speed automatic transmission. However, with steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters, you stay in control and can change gears on demand whenever you want.

If you want to maximize your traction, you can take advantage of the Terrain Response® 2 system, which lets you choose between several drive modes to suit your needs. These modes are:

  • General Driving
  • Grass, Gravel, Snow
  • Mud & Ruts
  • Rock Crawl

The Terrain Response® 2 system also offers a Sand mode, which utilizes an ultra-low gear ratio to help prevent your SUV from sinking into soft earth.
