Spy Shots: ‘05 Land Rover Discovery

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.

Nice post.

The family resemblance with the RR is very clear.

Wonder what the new shape Defender and Freelander will look like?

Cheers,

Neil

I think this car is going to be revealed to the public at the Frankfurt motor show. It will be great having the modified 4.2L Jag engine for the Disco and RR.

The current Land Rover Discovery has been on the market since 1998 and will be replaced by an all-new model in autumn next year. It will appear in the U.S. in early 2005 as a 2005 model. The photos are showing disguised prototypes of the new seven-seater, but our computer illustration reveals the Range Rover’s undeniable influence. The next-generation Discovery will no longer have the spare wheel mounted on the rear door but under the boot floor, though the Discovery will maintain the characteristic “step” in the roofline.

My first car was a 67 Mustang Coupe, 2nd one was a 67 Cougar XR-7, 3rd one was a 66 Mustang Coupe. Why did I get rid of these cars for ? I know why, because I'm stupid, stupid, stupid.

My next Ford.....
