The Land Rover Discovery Takes on the Competition

The Land Rover Discovery is a standard-bearer when it comes to SUVs, having set the bar for seven-passenger luxurious SUVs years ago. With a civilized, efficient and deluxe nature, the Land Rover Discovery still offers the capability to dominate the great outdoors. We're proud to offer this stellar example of the Land Rover breeding to our customers from the Farragut TN, Maryville, and Seymour TN areas.

If you're thinking about purchasing a new high-end SUV, we suggest you take a look at this comparison page, where we put the Land Rover Discovery in head-to-head matches with worthy rivals.

Land Rover Discovery vs. Lincoln Navigator

  • Standard all-wheel drive. The Land Rover Discovery comes already-equipped with all-wheel drive, providing drivers with a more-assured drive in poor weather conditions and on unpaved roads. The Navigator, on the other hand, comes with rear-wheel drive standard and makes you pay even more to get the comfort and control of all-wheel drive. Plus, only the Land Rover Discovery comes equipped with the Terrain Response system that allows you to change the SUV's settings to better meet the terrain you're driving on.
  • Safety. While both SUVs feature a protective abundance of airbags, as well as standard ABS, traction control, electronic stability systems, rearview cameras, and child safety locks, there are some features of the Land Rover Discovery that make it inherently safer than the Navigator. For instance, the child safety locks on the rear doors are power controlled from the driver's seat, while the Navigator's are manual and require that you open the doors individually and check the lock status. The Discovery is constructed with a three-dimensional high-strength frame that surrounds the compartment, while the Navigator -- since it's built with a body-on-frame design -- has no frame components above the floor.
  • Land Rover Discovery vs. Mercedes-Benz GLS

  • Features. Even though the Mercedes-Benz GLS has a significantly higher Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price, it doesn't offer nearly the same level of standard amenities as you find on the Land Rover Discovery. Whether it's power driver and passenger seats, dual-zone climate control, leather-wrapped steering wheel, navigation, or keyless start, the Land Rover Discovery includes more premium features at no extra cost to you.
  • Safety. While both SUVs come loaded with such standard safety features as tire pressure monitoring, traction control, daytime running lights, and electronic stability control, the Land Rover Discovery also includes a rearview camera as standard issue -- the Mercedes-Benz GLS makes you pay more to add that as an option.
  • Land Rover Discovery vs. Acura MDX

  • Performance. The standard 3.0-liter supercharged V6 engine found in the Land Rover Discovery generates 340 horsepower and 332 pound-feet of torque, delivering much greater power than does the Acura's 3.5-liter V6 and its maximum output of 290 horsepower and 267-pound-feet of torque. It's also worth noting that the Land Rover Discovery is equipped with standard all-wheel drive, while the Acura MDX comes with front-wheel drive. If you want the comfort and reassurance of all-wheel drive as you travel around the Great Smoky Mountains, you'll have to pay the price to get it with the Acura.
  • Standard features. While both models are well-equipped with today's technologies and amenities, the Land Rover Discovery provides drivers with more of each than does the Acura MDX. For instance, even the introductory Discovery includes navigation, hands-free communication, rain-sensing wipers, and remote engine start. The base MDX doesn't even offer these features as expensive options.
