DISCOVERY REVISIONSA new front grille, front bumper, LED daytime running lights and headlamp design gives the 2014 model year Land Rover Discovery a fresh new look. More significant, however, is the fact that for some markets, the words Land Rover will be removed from the bonnet, replaced by Discovery. On the tailgate the ‘4’ has been removed, leaving just the word Discovery. Engine badging also moves from the tailgate to an ingot mounted on each of the front doors – this will appear as SDV6 for the UK market. In the US and Middle East, however, the vehicle’s badging will remain as before. The new models get some of Land Rover’s very latest hi tech gizmos, including Wade Sensing, Blind Spot Monitoring, Closing Vehicle Sensing, Reverse Traffic Detection and T-junction cameras. Also to link up with the rest of the range, the Discovery will now be available with the excellent Meridian audio system. These new models can be ordered in the UK now, for delivery in mid-November.
