A Land Rover is a Land Rover….no doubt about it. British engineering and design, a few decades of great car architecture.  I still remember my grand father’s Land Rover and my father’s Land Rover and Range Rover.  Elegant, fancy and powerful cars to own.  A land Rover is not only a great car to drive, is also a symbol of status, if you drive one, you are a one of the privilege drivers to have one.


Land Rover

This story begins in 1947, in a very unusual way, compared to other companies who produced cars. The thing is, first sketches of a car were made in the sand of a Welsh beach. That car was the Land Rover.

Certainly, Land Rover navigated uncharted path with a firm grasp, combining in their cars capability and composure, which picks out each vehicle bearing the Land Rover badge.

In 1987, the first Range Rover vehicles arrived in the U.S. and immediately spread through a whole new continent. After 30 years, they’ve not only changed people’s imagination of what luxury vehicles are, but also let one drive on-road or off. In 1989, it became the first in the world vehicle 4×4 to feature anti-lock brakes.

The All-New Discovery can become a very pragmatic choice, as this car feels at home in the city, and also drives perfectly off-road. It shows an amazing towing capability, with a capacity of up to 8201 lbs and a suite of features available to help make towing at ease and assured. Optimized suspension structure together with unique Land Rover technologies provide the ultimate all-terrain facilities.

The All-New 2017 Discovery also provides great efficiency, due to Intelligent Stop/Start technology, use of lightweight materials and refined aerodynamics.

Another innovation of the vehicle is a Dynamic Stability Control (DSC), which controls the vehicle’s dynamic behavior and is designed to interfere if it determines the vehicle is not responding to the driver’s inlets. This feature will be very useful on and off-road.
