Some details about the 2023 Land Rover Discovery have already been announced. The largest SUV in the non-premium family comes with minor changes. The most eye-catching update can be found in the trim levels, where you can find the Metropolitan edition at the top of the range. Discovery Sport is a different model. It is a medium sized SUV.
Most experts consider the Land Rover Discovery to be the premium car. It’s smaller than most full-size SUVs. Well, some mid-size models are larger than disco. However, the price is not as high as you would pay for a Range Rover or a Range Rover Sport.
In general, 2023 Land Rover Discovery will cost a little more than the previous version. Of course you will get more features and systems. We can’t say that about the space behind the second row. The rear seat is only suitable for children, so there is not much space for luggage. Even with a four-turbocharged engine, the Land Rover Discovery will perform great on and off-road.
2023 Land Rover Discovery Engine specifications
Let’s take a look at what makes the Land Rover Discovery a pleasure to drive. The 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbo is the engine for entry-level configurations. It can produce 296 horsepower and 295 pound-feet, which isn’t impressive for this class. Some non-premium SUVs can offer even higher performance. An eight-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive are standard. Gas mileage is not impressive. The SUV can handle 19/22 mpg, mainly due to its size and weight.
3.0L inline unit will make everything look better. More power and better gas mileage will be enough for most fans. A six-point treadmill can produce 355 horsepower and 365 lb-ft. How can a larger engine provide better fuel consumption than a four-cylinder mill? JLR will install a mild hybrid system that will allow the Land Rover Discovery to do 18/24 mpg. However, compared to the competition, these are not numbers to brag about.
Next season we have a unique member of the squad. This is the 2023 Land Rover Discovery Metropolitan Edition, which stands out above all other trim levels in the lineup. The R-Dynamic HSE Edition is refined inside and out. A bright Atlas look is available for the front grille and “Discover” text above it. Under the bumper, designers added Hakuba Silver details. Turned diamond wheels are in use. These are 22″ alloy wheels with glossy gray accents. Contrasting black brake calipers attract more attention.
Inside, buyers will find a HUD and heated steering wheel as standard options. Updates from previous versions also include third-row heating and cooling, four-zone climate control and Titanium Mesh-themed details. Of course, the Metropolitan Discovery 2023 also inherits amazing features from the R-Dynamic HSE Edition, such as the Meridian audio system, wireless charging station, or contrast roof.
We have already mentioned two models, R-Dynamic and Metropolitan. The base model is the base model with LED headlights, 18-inch steel wheels and roof rails. The company made keyless entry and ignition a standard feature. The front seats use the function of heating and electrical adjustment. Cloth upholstery is standard. The S package is the only package available for the entry level version.
R-Dynamic makes it even more exciting. First of all, both engines are available. Some say even a V8 is coming soon. However, the six-point module is required if you want the HSE option package. Highlights of the 2023 Land Rover Discovery R-Dynamic include a black contrast roof, LED taillights, unique front and rear bumper design and special body badges. HSE adds some distinctive details like 22-inch wheels and LED lights.

The base 2023 Land Rover Discovery is more expensive than the luxury Range Rover. However, the Disco is more expensive than other three-row mid-size SUVs. Pricing starts at $57,000. The R-Dynamic adds $3,000, or $6,000 if you want a more powerful engine. The HSE package will then be available as a next upgrade. This combination is valued at $71,500. Highest suggested retail price for the Metropolitan version. Before adding anything, the price is already well over $75,000. Loaded with premium options, the cost will cross $80,000 quite easily.
