2010 Land Rover Discovery 4 / LR4

Being developed alongside the next-generation Defender

New details are starting to emerge about the 2016 Land Rover Discovery 5 / LR5.

According to documents attained by Autocar, the SUV will be refocused as a more utilitarian model. Furthermore, the information indicates the Discovery - codenamed the L661 - could ride on the same platform as the redesigned Defender. However, it remains unclear if it will be an all-new chassis or an updated version of the current T5 platform.

We should learn more in the coming years, so stay tuned.

Just FYI- for many car companies doing business in the US, the intent has been to drop the model names down to an alphanumeric designation as an effort to remove attention from the individual models and place more recognition on the brand. This is usually being done by foreign automakers who are attempting to establish a stronger "brand" identity in the US. That is why you find this mostly in the US.

The name LR3 came up in US after their Discovery2 model to avoid the negative quality association with the name of "Discovery". But yeah Im glad that Land Rovers are reconsidering the where Discovery model stands in their brand. Discovery model was becoming too much like Range, too luxuorious.

2016? how is this news? Ayways, I hate the LR names, theyre so stupid. What are they planning on calling the next LR2? the LR3? they can't do that, because it already exsist. LR6? well that makes no sense. Can't we have the "Discovery" name back Land Rover?
