2017 Land Rover Discovery Performance: Built to Excel

The Land Rover name has built itself a reputation for dependability from the streets of Mobile to the Florida panhandle – and the trails in between – and the 2017 Land Rover Discovery performance specs continue to do so. With a pair of six-cylinder engine options – one diesel and one petrol – as well as the innovative Terrain Response 2 system, few SUVs can go toe-to-toe with the Land Rover Discovery. It’s a proud addition to the Land Rover legacy.

Defining SUV Performance

3.0L Si6 Petrol

The standard engine, this six-cylinder is capable of 340 hp and 332 lb-ft of torque and is paired to an eight-speed automatic transmission with standard four-wheel drive (of course).

3.0L Td6 Diesel

Drivers looking for the efficiency and torque offered by diesel will be happy to find the Land Rover Discovery 3.0L Td6 rated at 254 hp and 443 lb-ft of torque, achieving its max torque at 1,750 – 2,250 RPM.

Terrain Response 2

The soul of the Land Rover Discovery is its dedication to capability, and that’s seen in Terrain Response 2. This dynamic system monitors driving conditions to automatically select the best driving mode for ideal powertrain and chassis setup.


Sometimes adventure calls for more than can fit in the cabin of your SUV, and that’s why the 2017 land Rover Discovery performance specs include a max towing capacity of up to 8,201 pounds.
