It’s not hard to work out that Land Rover are in the process of replacing their current range of Discovery, Range Rover, Range Rover Sport with new models. We had the Range Rover Westminster back in February and today at the New York Motor Show we get the Disco run-out model with the reveal of the Land Rover Discovery 4 HSE Luxury Special Edition.
The luxury Discovery looks like the highest spec Disco ever launched, pitching it even further in to Range Rover territory than it already was. But that doesn’t matter when Land Rover are soon to separate the identities of its Land Rover and Range Rover offerings.
The Disco HES Luxury gets brightwork on the roof rails, round the grill (which is now body-coloured), on the bonnet name and tailgate badge. The door mirrors get Noble-plated and the posh Discovery sits on a set of new 20″, 10-spoke alloys. Three colours are available - Santorini Black, Orkney Grey and for the first time on the Discovery 4, Havana.
Inside you can have Premium Ebony or Ivory leather and there’s extra leather on top of the dash, on the door tops and panels and the trim is Zebrano wood – exclusive to the HSE Luxury.
Other goodies thrown in to the Disco 4 HSE Luxury include an 825-watt Harman Kardon Logic 7 sound system, privacy glass, cooler box in the central console, Xenon Adaptive Front Headlamps including Cornering Lamps and a rear screen entertainment centre with a pair of 8″ screens.
The only engine on offer is the 3.0 litre SDV6 with 252bhp which can get the behemoth that is the Disco to 62mph in 8.8 seconds (it doesn’t feel that slow) and on to 112mph.
The Land Rover Discovery 4 HSE Luxury Special Edition goes on sale in the summer at £56,995.
