Land Rover, with the history of more than a century, still excels among the high-end vehicles with its outstanding strength nowadays. It has put out a variety of types of off-roads vehicles, which can be cataloged to three series: Land Rover Range Rover, Land Rover Defender, Land Rover Freelancer and Land Rover Discovery. Land Rover Discovery can be regard as a low-key but strong product.
The first generation of Land Rover Discovery was born in the late 1980s. At that time, Land Rover had gained wide recognition and a good consumer base with its Defender series and Range Rover series. However, with the rise of Japanese vehicle manufacturers, Japanese cars like the Toyota series and the Mitsubishi Pajero gradually gained the recognition of customers, and immediately occupied the market of mid-size SUV, which is though lacking in the Range Rover series. Therefore, Land Rover started the Project Jay to develop a new SUV, aiming at this new market.
In 1989, Land Rover released the first generation of Discovery, which had only three doors. Then in the next year, it released the five-door Discovery. The Discovery was designed based on the chassis and the power system of Range Rover. Though the in-car configuration of Discovery was not luxurious as Range Rover, it had all the functions. More importantly, its price was just half of the price of Range Rover, thus it was welcomed by the customers after it came out.
The back of the second-generation Discovery was obviously lengthened, which increased the space of the boot, but limited the off-road performance. And the departure angle of the second generation was also obviously smaller than that of the first generation.
The second generation of Discovery still used the power system of the first generation. In 2003, Land Rover Company released the Discovery 2, which was powered up by the 4.6L V8 engine from the Range Rover.
The Discovery 3 was formally released in 2004. The appearance of the Discovery 3 was totally different from the previous two generation, but its front was similar to the Range Rover series, together with its large body, making it look more powerful.

In addition, the Discovery 3 was equipped with patented Terrain Response System, with which the driver could choose the driving mode according to the road situation. The terrain Response System is able to automatically choose the best settings which include the height of the driver’s seat, the torque response of the engine, downhill control, electronic traction control, transmission setting, etc. basing on the road situation. This system brings good off-road performance to the Discovery 3. Besides, there were two optional gasoline engine for Discovery 3, one was the 4.0L V6 engine from Ford with the max wattage of 216 Hp, the other was the 4.4L V8 engine from Jaguar with the max wattage of 300 Hp.
In 2009, Land Rover released the Discovery 4, of which the shape doesn’t change a lot compared to the last generation but the front side is a brand-new design, which looks the same as that of Range Rover. The engine of the Discovery 4 is 3.0 TDV6 HSE diesel engine, of which the third-generation common rail direct injection system, together with the main and subordinate turbocharger, produce the max power of 180kw/400rpm, and provide the peak torque of 600Nm, making it possible for the Discovery 4 to accelerate to 100km/h in 4 to 7.9 seconds. And there are two optional engines for the Discovery 4: 4.0 L V6 and 5.0 L V8. 5.0L V8 is a normally aspirated engine to which the the technology of direct injection, variable valve, VIS are applied.
