Statistics show that in recent years mid-sized luxury vehicles have experienced a surge in popularity. More people have started preferring these over other types of vehicles because of their feasibility and ease with which you can travel in them. In addition to this, they are also a convenient choice because they are smaller in size compared to other trucks or vehicles, but can still seat 4 to 8 people without any difficulty.
One such vehicle that has gained copious amounts of attention is the 2017 Land Rover LR4; or better known by the alternative name of “Discovery” outside the United States. It is mid-sized crossover SUV, and for years has been synonymous with the word legendary. The famous SUV has been completely revamped and redesigned to make it more comfortable and roomy at the same time.
2017 Land Rover LR4 – Advantages and Disadvantages:
The cabin is wider to carry more cargo and accommodate any sort of luggage sufficiently. In addition to this, it is equipped with state-of-the-art headlights, which glow in the dark. The SUV now comes with the stylish yet broader wheelbase and excels which rotate the vehicle even if traveling at a great speed. The 2017 Land Rover LR4 has also ditched famous split tailgate for a traditional single piece lift gate. This, according to officials, has made the loading of cargo comparatively easier. Furthermore, this provides added protection from the weather. The vehicle is capable of supporting a maximum load of 644.1 pounds according to official reports published by the company.
The interior of the Discovery has been entirely changed. The dashboard has a 10 inches touchscreen display, which is powered by Land Rover’s InControl Touch Pro infotainment architecture. The new system also has the added advantage of a door to door navigation system and apps that can be downloaded from the internet. In addition to this, there is also the facility of Wi-Fi, which can connect up to eight devices at any given point in time. A much-awaited feature of the 2017 Land Rover LR4 is the intelligent Seat Fold, which is operated either by the smartphone app or the switches. They can be lowered and raised according to your needs and wants. This feature comes in handy when you might have extra luggage. The latest version also has the latest technology when it comes to security features; it is equipped with airbags.
2017 Land Rover LR4 – Engine Upgrades:
It is speculated that the 2017 Land Rover LR4 will be available with two different types of engines depending on the user’s choice. One option is the Land Rover Jaguar’s 3.0 liter V6, which is powered by supercharged gasoline. It provides a 340 hp, and a torque of approximately 332-pound-feet. The other choice is the TD6 2.0 turbodiesel. This provides a 254 hp and tremendous torque of 443-pound feet. According to company officials, the V6 can reach speeds of 60 in a mere 6.9 seconds while the TD6 requires almost 7.7 seconds to do so. There is also an automatic transmission system.
The mileage in the city is 15 mpg, while on the highway it is going to be 19 mpg. However, an average of 16 mpg is expected from both sorts of the engine.
2017 Land Rover LR4 – Price and Expected Release Date:
The 2017 model of the Discovery undercuts prices compared to current models of the LR4. It is speculated that the price will start from $49,990 with $995 for the destination. This is the price expected for the gasoline-powered engine. On the other hand, if you want a limited time First Model with all the trimmings then the price will be $73,950. In case you were thinking of buying a diesel engine, then you will have to pay approximately $58,950.
As far as the release date of the vehicle is concerned, the company has not given an official date. However, it does say that the 2017 Land Rover LR4 will be available in the market for purchasing before the end of 2016.
The price and the specs will all give the company’s rivals a tough competition. However, in the end, I would like to advise all readers that before purchasing any vehicle you should gather ample information. Do not let the cost of a certain vehicle be a deterrent as you should invest money in a car that is bound to pay off in the long run.
