With the current generation of Land Rover’s three-row SUV being around since 2017, everyone questions its future. Is it going to be redesigned? Or, should the company discontinue it? According to the latest reports, the former is what’s about to happen. The 2025 Land Rover Discovery is about to come completely redesigned and from what we know so far, the changes will be significant.
It looks like the company plans to change the course of Discovery and make it different, more family-friendly. What this actually means, it’s still unclear but some of the things that seem certain are a more spacious cabin and improved ride quality. Moreover, the new model will also ride on a new platform, which will allow the accommodation of various powertrain types, including an all-electric setup.
The all-new 2025 Land Rover Discovery is expected to arrive sometime in the second half of the next year.
2025 Land Rover Discovery Redesign
As we’ve just mentioned, many were worried about Discovery’s future. Simply, the launch of the new Defender a few years ago completely changed the situation in the brand’s lineup and Discovery’s sales numbers dropped significantly. For that reason, many believed that there would be no next generation. However, the company thinks differently. The goal is to offer a completely new 2025 Land Rover Discovery, which will be more family-friendly.
The first step in this redesign will be the platform. As presumed, the new model will switch to the new MLA platform, and most sources suggest that many parts would be shared with the Range Rover Sport. Among many benefits, the new platform will also allow the installment of an all-electric powertrain.
As the company already announced a more family-friendly design, we presume that a part of it refers to improved ride quality. The current model may be great off the road but its on-road manners are anything but inspiring. There is a significant lack of steering feedback, while the amount of body roll is big even for this segment. This should change drastically with the new platform and suspension setup.
But, does this mean that off-road performances are about to be compromised? We don’t believe it. We expect that the new model will also come with a full load of off-road features, including adjustable suspension, rear locker and various traction control modes.
As for the exterior design, the new generation will, of course, bring new styling. Details are still unavailable but we have no doubt that the new model will look more elegant than before, with the implementation of the brand’s latest design language.
A more family-friendly design also means more interior space, which indicates bigger exterior dimensions. How much bigger, that’s still unclear.
As for the interior design, the 2025 Land Rover Discovery will certainly get a complete makeover, with a more luxurious and more stylish dashboard design. Of course, we count on typical Land Rover aesthetics, in combination with fancier materials and the latest tech goodies.
Once again, we are getting to the company’s promise of a more family-friendly design. This also refers to more passenger space, particularly in the third row, which is currently very tight. The same could be said for the cargo area.
2025 Land Rover Discovery Engines
As for the powertrain options, the new platform offers impressive flexibility, which includes various kinds of electrified powertrain options. Of course, base models will continue to rely solely on gas power, with a turbo-four unit and available six-cylinder engine. As for the electrification, a plug-in hybrid version might be ready for the initial launch but, on the other hand, the all-electric version won’t be ready in the next few years.
2025 Land Rover Discovery Release Date and Price
We expect to see the 2025 Land Rover Discovery sometime in the second half of the next year. As for the price, we might see some increase compared to the current model, which starts at around 60.000 dollars. Of course, the competition remains the same, primarily in the form of German rivals like Mercedes-Benz GLE, BMW X5 and Audi Q7.
