If you thought that Land Rover has softened up the Discovery too much, fear not. Despite the fact that the full-size Range Rover has been riding on a unibody platform for over a decade, it has remained to be a very capable off-road vehicle. That said, the same could be expected for the new Discovery. But if that’s not enough for the off-road Disco lovers, Land Rover won’t leave you behind.
According to a report from AutoCar, Land Rover will produce a more rugged variant to the new production Discovery. Not much is specifically known, except for the hint that it will debut sometime in 2017, riding on an all-aluminum platform built for off-road capability as a priority over on-road driving dynamics.
