As it enters its second model year, the 2018 Land Rover Discovery is set to receive a fair amount of updates. The changes are to its technological features, driver assistance systems, and powertrain.
The only visual update of note is the addition of one new exterior color option: Bryon Blue.
As for new tech features, the 2018 Land Rover Discovery will get the InControl Touch Pro infotainment system with a 10-inch touchscreen across its entire range and 4G Wi-Fi to get its occupants online. Additionally, HSE and HSE Luxury models will now feature a 12.3-inch Interactive Driver Display TFT instrument cluster and a head-up display as standard.
Helping keep things safe, Land Rover will make automatic standard braking with pedestrian detection standard on all 2018 Discovery models.
The final change to the 2018 Discovery is the broader availability of the T6d diesel engine. Land Rover now will offer this 3.0-liter turbo-diesel V-6 engine, which produces 254 horsepower and 443 pound-feet of torque, with the SE trim — it was once only available in the HSE and HSE Luxury trims. This engine will continue to pair with the eight-speed automatic transmission and will carry a $2,000 premium.
The 2018 Land Rover Discovery will start from $52,090 for the SE trim with the 3.0-liter gasoline V6 and top out at $67,490 for the HSE Luxury with the 3.0-liter diesel engine.
