2017 Land Rover Discovery SVX
The latest generation of the Land Rover Discovery is currently in the last stages of development. The new model is due to hit the market in the first half of 2016. Following the standard version, the special off-road variant of the LR5 is set to be unveiled as the 2017 Land Rover Discovery SVX. Of course, the SVO’s special model will be based on the new generation of the Discovery model. It is very likely that we could see the SVX’s premiere at least a year after the new 2016 Land Rover Discovery 5 makes its debut.
The launch of the 2017 Land Rover Discovery SVX has been announced by John Edwards, the Managing Director of Jaguar Land Rover’s Special Operations. Besides the special off-road SVX version of the Land Rover Discovery, the British automaker plans to unwrap other models as well. They are expected to hit the showrooms simultaneously with the Range Rover SVR and the Range Rover SVAutobiography.
2017 Land Rover Discovery SVX Specs
Jaguar Land Rover’s Special Vehicle Operations (SVO) has a number of updates in store for the new SVX model. The company’s management believes that the demand for such a vehicle should increase during the next few years. That is certainly one of the reasons why the 2017 Land Rover Discovery SVX is set to arrive shortly after the launch of the 2016 LR5.
As one of its key qualities, the 2017 Land Rover Discovery SVX is expected to offer outstanding off-road capabilities. Being based on the LR5 model, the SVX will inherit most of its components including the engine range. Compared to the standard model, it will boast modified suspension, improved alloy wheels and a number of other special features. One of the most notable innovations in the 2017 Land Rover Discovery SVX might come in the form of a „virtual“ windshield. This special windshield has already been showcased on the Discovery Vision Concept.
After the LR2 (Freelander) was successfully replaced by the new Discovery Sport and the next-generation Discovery 5 was announced, the British company seems determined to position itself as the leading automaker in this segment. Land Rover has also presented a new diesel engine for the Discovery Sport. On top of that, there will be the brand new Range Rover SVR, Range Rover SVAutobiography, as well as the successor to the iconic Defender. If everything goes according to the plan, the 2017 Land Rover Discovery SVX will only contribute to this brand’s success in the near future.
