New Land Rover Discovery SVX Concept Unveiled
All-new for the 2017 model year, the Land Rover Discovery can be found right now near Huntington and Beckley on the lot of Land Rover Charleston in Charleston, WV in the trim of your choice. There’s no questioning the commitment to rugged on- and off-road performance in the new Discovery, but at the Frankfurt Auto Show a new concept version of this model was put on display in the form of the Land Rover Discovery SVX.
A New Take on a Classic
Unveiled this year at the Frankfurt Auto Show, the Land Rover Discovery SVX brings a simple but profound philosophy to bear: more is better. A project of Land Rover SVO (Special Vehicle Operations), this model is more powerful and more off-road capable than its already impressive namesake:
- Engine – Under the hood of the new Land Rover Discovery SVX Concept, you’ll find a supercharged 5.0L V8 engine that puts out a commanding 518 hp and 461 lb-ft of torque.
- Off-Road Prowess – The Land Rover Discovery SVX marks the debut of a new Hydraulic Active Roll Control system, which we should be seeing in more Land Rover models to come. It also gets a more robust version of the Terrain Response® 2 system, as well as a lifted air suspension that uses long-travel dampers and newly designed knuckles.
- On-Road Handling – The Hydraulic Active Roll Control system also improves on-road driving dynamics by minimizing body roll when you’re on the highway and improving traction in a variety of conditions.
