In terms of aesthetics, Gerry McGovern, design director at Land Rover, revealed that the 2019 Defender will have a “polarizing” design. The new generation of SUVs will always pay homage to the vast history of the nameplate, but will also bring important changes to attract new customers. Although Defender fans do not appreciate the big change in design language, McGovern said the design process would be organic and that the 2019 Defender would not be just a version of the automaker’s other vehicles like 2019 Land Rover Discovery. In addition, the director of Land Rover said the new Defender would meet the needs of future buyers. It will be “modern, fully automated, highly technical and futuristic”.
As we said, the first thing the designer has changed in 2019 is the 2019 Land Rover Discovery design from the previous four generations. This time, it’s not a square cube of perforated metal, and it has many softened edges and a nicer front end at the back. The front has a modern look, with a wide, long mesh grille that extends to the front and ends with large LED lights. Under them, the fine air inlet and the metal bottom are well incorporated. The rear, meanwhile, has an extended cargo area, covered with black glass and simple but attractive taillights. The rear window covers the wide spoiler at the top.
In addition to the extra space for seven passengers, the cabin of the 2019 Land Rover Discovery offers plenty of cargo space, which is undoubtedly superior to competitions. Not only do they offer more space for passengers, but they will also appreciate the light quality materials, quality leather and plastic in the highest ornaments and certainly a much better interior designed in a modern way. There are highly positioned and adjustable seats and a special high technology in each final version. For an extra charge you can, for example, get a special cruise control or an improved backup camera.
Two V6 powertrains are available for the upcoming 2019 Land Rover Discovery. The standard engine is a powerful 3.0L supercharged V6. It is capable of producing 340 HP and 332 lb-ft of torque. The second option is a 3.0 liter V6 turbodiesel. It must be added that this engine is the first diesel ever seen in the Range Rover. This unit returns 254 HP and 443 lb-ft of torque. In addition, both engines will be delivered with an 8 speed transmission. In terms of fuel consumption, the first supercharged V6 engine will have a range of about 16/21 mpg. However, the other V6 turbo diesel will give 21/26 mpg.
Time will tell if the old buyers will love the design more than the engine performance when the 2019 Land Rover Discovery arrives on the market and in the car showrooms. The price range of $ 51,000 to $ 75,000 promises great equipment and additions to this truck.
