After the recent mid-cycle refresh, it is expected that the company’s only 7-seater will remain in production for another few years. This clearly indicates that the 2022 Land Rover Discovery is about to come without more important changes, as a typical carryover model. Naturally, a few updates in terms of standard equipment are always possible, but anything more than that would be a real surprise.
All in all, you may count on a familiar layout, which still has a couple of good things to offer, despite that the competition in the segment is extremely tough. Of course, the first thing that comes to mind is the off-road performance, but this model is also pretty amazing in terms of the interior quality, capable engine options and a fairly decent list of standard and available features.
Since there are no bigger changes to come for the next year, we expect that the 2022 Land Rover Discovery will hit the market sometime late in the year.
2022 Land Rover Discovery Design
In terms of base design characteristics, things definitely won’t change. You may count on the same overall design, which has been around since 2017. The model features 115 inches in wheelbase, which is quite average for the class. Other dimensions are also quite typical for the segment. What we like about this model is that, even though off-road performances are fantastic, on-road comfort and ride quality aren’t sacrificed. The ride is quite smooth, though we have to say that handling isn’t the most engaging in the class.
Visually, the recent update has brought a couple of interesting novelties, starting from new Matrix LED headlights and a new grille. The rear end was updated with new taillights, so we can say that the model is pretty much aligned with the rest of the lineup. All in all, the 2022 Land Rover Discovery will hardly get any particular novelty in terms of aesthetics.
The recent update has also brought novelties on the inside. There is a new infotainment system, which comes with a bigger, 11.4-inch touchscreen. There are few revisions on the center stack, while the overall cabin layout has remained the same. That definitely isn’t a bad thing, considering that this interior looks very impressive. We like Land Rover’s classic aesthetics, while materials are first-rate. Finally, the build quality is pretty amazing as well.
The 2022 Land Rover Discovery interior will also continue to be quite practical. We like its expansive cargo area, while the boxy share seems quite friendly to large objects. In numbers, you may count on nearly 84 cubic feet of the total cargo volume.
On the other side, the amount of passenger space isn’t that impressive. While the first row is very comfortable and spacious, the second one doesn’t offer as much space as you get from most rivals. Finally, the third row can be used only by kids.
2022 Land Rover Discovery Engines
The recent update has also brought novelties under the hood. The 2022 Land Rover Discovery will continue with the recent additions. So, you may count on two gasoline engines in the offer. Base models will use a 2.0-liter turbo-four, which puts out around 296 horsepower. With such power, you may count on a pretty convenient ride. Those who are looking for something peppier can opt for a bigger 3.0-liter inline-six, which comes with a 48-Volt mild-hybrid system and puts out around 355 horsepower. The latter also provides quite respectable max towing capacity, which goes up to 8.200 pounds.
2022 Land Rover Discovery Release Date and Price
We expect to see the 2022 Land Rover Discovery sometime late in the year, with a starting price of around 55.500 dollars. Some of the key competitors are models like Audi Q7, Mercedes-Benz GLE, BMW X5 etc.
