Jaguar Land Rover has Quite a Few Interesting Vehicles up for Launch
|   Friday, November 01, 2013
Latest spy images of the next generation Land Rover Discovery proto type have just come in and this vehicle reportedly is just two years away from launch. This vehicle is expected to be based on completely new technology and platform, sharing no components with its current variant. This however needs proper planning and preparation, especially since the current generation platform is very successful and in order to enhance sales, the company needs to come up with something even better.
Land Rover also plans on upgrading all current models with the new platform. Hence, proper tests are vital for a successful future.

The entry level variant of the Discovery should be designed on an extended wheelbase of the current Evoque and the test mule was spotted sporting the frame and bodywork of an Evoque. We are sure however that the drivetrain and chassis is new, partly because no new variants of Land Rover's Evoque were up for launch.

Another reason is owing to the large and awkward space between the rear wheels. A production model Evoque would not sport something hideous. Hence, we can effectively conclude that this is not an Evoque. Land Rover has also been testing the Discovery 5 and this vehicle has received heavy camouflaging as well.

The prototype is quite flattering as various design modifications have been made to its original concept. Land Rover wants the Discovery 5 to be the flagship model for their Range Rover lineup and this vehicle is perfect for the job. An aerodynamic prototype was seen testing and this vehicle featured new air intakes, side profile and roofline although it is based on its current generation steel platform.

It is a seven seated vehicle although its third row seats have been accommodated to provide greater space. We are not complaining as long as we get promised levels of details, luxury and comfort and judging by what we have seen so far, Jaguar Land Rover seems to have put together a decent piece of equipment here. Along with an uncompromising body work and solid off road capabilities, this beast is capable of taking on the urban environment too.

Insiders have confirmed that this vehicle will not be available for the next year and a half at least although we sure hope Land Rover comes up with this vehicle fast. We are hopeful of a Geneva Motor Show unveiling in March 2015 although we could get to see it earlier if we are lucky. Jaguar Land Rover currently has a lot on its platter and the company reportedly is working on a new platform for its sedan and coupe ranges.

However, we believe that basic chassis and drive train elements of Jaguar and Land Rover will be similar and this should save the company some time and money when it comes to research and development. Land Rover plans on unveiling its Discovery by January 2014 and we expect them to showcase their latest vehicle at the New York Motor Show.
