Definitely a hot looking truck! The interior is fantastic, and I love how they are drawing it close to the Range Rover. Only two things wrong with it: a) why is Land Rover also going to alphanumeric? Why can't they keep the Disco name? B) it's missing a rear-door mounted spare. That rear-door is definitely in need of a spare mounted on it.

They're dropping the Discovery name in the US because apparently it has to play and they want to put the brand front-and-centre. In Europe where "Discovery" has a much stronger reputation it'll be known as the "Dicsovery LR3" if I'm not mistaken.

As for the spare tire, they moved it under the rear seats for safety and packageing reasons. I'm sure they have a whole catelog full of stuff to jazz up the back with :D

That's the ugliest Land Rover I've seen yet.

I think that this is a handsome vehicle, inside and out. It possesses an upscale look that I'm sure will appeal to status-conscious buyers.

I just don't like it. The interior dashboard looks unique though, just like the Volvo XC90....but the back I don't like. It looks too boxy. The front is okay. The Range Rover is a nice vehicle. The Discovery just never really appealed to me.....

It's got FORD written all over it!

Looks like an old Land Rover mated with an Explorer or Expedition. 

What's next?  A blue oval emblem? :lol:
Well, considering it's already got a green one, it's halfway there! :laughbounce:

Honestly I can say that I sorta like it. It's miles ahead of the Discovery and not quite as monolithic as a Range Rover. Pretty good. Bias? HA!

Oooh, cool. I know tons of people at my school whose parents drive Land Rovers. Glad to see that they have a new one coming out.
