Built on its very own platform, the next Disco will share bits and pieces with Ford’s Explorer, an engine rumored to be co-developed with Peugeot (a 2.7-liter V-6), and possibly even a V-8 borrowed from Jaguar. But, even with all the international input, production will remain in the United Kingdom.
Short- and long-wheelbase versions are expected to be available, with seating options for five or seven. Styling will remain traditional with the “Alpine” roof windows and a stepped roofline, but details will be updated and modernized. Both on-road and off-road handling is said to be improved in the vehicle, code-named the L319, and it’s just about ready for the production line.
