The front looks kind of similar to the newer Range Rovers, but I am not seeing Land Rover anywhere else... It looks like some strange minivan/station wagon/suv mix.

Alyson, reminds me a lot of the current Dodge Durango with a Ford Explorer face (since LR seems to have adopted the Explorer front clip as their new corporate face).

I wanted to revive the new "Discovery" thread. I am sure some of you saw the YouTube video of the guy jumping out of the plane and configuring the electronic seats with his iPhone, well here is another spy shot video:

 

https://youtu.be/MwD4zn6sh5g

 

The reveal is coming up in about a week, though I think between the official front photos, the shots of the Discovery in the jumping out of the plane video and the one above, we have a pretty good idea what the new Discovery looks like in person. Basically a bigger Discovery Sport. 

 

Oh a couple of shots in the feed below (but still in camo):

I'm not knocking the Disco Sport, as I think it's a pretty sharp little cute-ute Freelander replacement and I get that automakers need hot sellers in order to turn a profit. 

 

But, to take something like the full size DISCOVERY of all things, with its history and pedigree, and turn it into a slightly-larger Disco Sport mall cruiser is just so very sad. I don't even think it's a bad looking SUV - go on and sell it as a new, different model and I'd be happy. But to see the Discovery take such a departure from the last nearly-30-years is tragic. :(

Because there is no market for real off-road vehicles anymore.

 

I mean, Jeep practically has to give away Rubicons....

I have to agree with you! While I think it will be a brilliant vehicle, full of technology (yuck) and luxury, and very capable off road, it is just not in line with the previous 4 generations of "Discovery". I guess I understand Land Rover needs to make money and compete with the segment, but this is just such a huge deviation from the design. I don't really understand because the LR4 is selling like crazy, used vehicles are going for more than any rover has gone for in the past. They are in such demand! Maybe the new Defender coming in 2018/2019 will hopefully be somewhat similar to the model that left us in 2015.

HAHA! To be honest, I am SHOCKED at the number Jeeps I see on the road in New England. I know it's winter weather and all, but there are so many Jeep Wranglers (especially the Unlimited version) that it is incredible. A few are modified, but most are just stock. Personally, I feel if Land Rover kept the most recent design, updated the safety/emissions as needed, put a few minor extras in it similar to a Jeep Wrangler, price it right, it would sell like hot cakes!!!!!!!!!!!

Someone sent me this video .... more information coming on the LR website in anticipation for the launch in about a week and a half!

Sometimes it looks big and sometimes it looks no bigger than a Discovery Sport. I am really having a hard time telling each model apart.

Yep it's sad they are loosing the off road credentials - that is corporate marketing for you - go where you can maximize margins - and perhaps epa and other regulators also dictate this for fuel economy reasons etc.

But perhaps it opens the door for a new defender as the hard core off road machine. A lot of people in the uk are also upset at the end of the current defender ....

Certainly CAFE and EPA (and whatever the Euro version of those is) is playing a part.  I think that's why we saw the 5.0 go away.  But it's still no excuse in my mind.

 

As for the Defender....we can only hope.  And I'm not holding my breath.  The 'best case' I think is if they follow the 'family' program they outlined (Range Rover, Discovery, Defender) and offer multiple version of the Defender.  Then they can still sell a blinged out $100K version and *maybe* still sell an off-road worthy $50K version that can compete head to head with a Rubicon in the tough stuff.  At least that's what I'd like to see.  Again, not holding my breath.

So disappointing... they went so far as to differentiate the 'range rover' line from the 'discovery' line and all ghee trucks look exactly the same! WTF! Where is the historical step-up roof design, square back to increase cargo room.... where are any angles? 10 years ago, the vehicles were distinct and each filled a niche. Now they are homogenous and dull and look like a damn Kia. Why can't they understand how vital the heritage of the brand is and that offroad capability differentiated them from other makers. So sad... chasing profits and losing identity...

It has taken years of poor sales for domestic makers before they started to remake the old cars again with a modern twist... hopefully they come to the realization sooner!
