Learn the Land Rover Discovery history in just two short minutes
If you don’t know your SLS from your HDC, or your tdi from your td5? It might be worth taking this short crash course on Land Rover Discovery history. It’s a short, sharp and to-the-point video produced by Land Rover as a part of the launch of the all-new Discovery, which is the next big development in the product’s history.
The original Land Rover was, in a lot of ways, a re-bodied Range Rover Classic, that was able to capitalise on the Rangie’s success and forge a new market in between luxury and the rough workhorse of the One Ten/Defender. It had live axles back then, and kicked off some design cues that still live to this day.
The new one is a fifth-generation, built atop a third new platform for the model. Interestingly, it has gone back to that old trick of stealing from the Range Rover, with it’s new aluminium monocoque chassis.
