The upcoming Land Rover Discovery will get its off-road variant that will carry the name “SVX”. This version brings much better off-roading capabilities. According to the latest speculations, the 2019 Land Rover Discovery SVX will be the most extreme Land Rover so far. That speaks for itself as the company already produces some hardcore vehicles.
The 2019 Land Rover Discovery SVX offers aggressive bumpers, LED lighting, body-colored trims, and the luxurious interior. Moreover, the interior will feature a Jaguar-style pistol-grip shifter that replaces the regular rotary gear shifter. Unlike the base model, this off-road variant will use a 5.0-liter V8 that delivers astonishing figures.
2019 Land Rover Discovery SVX exterior design
The visual differences between the base model and the 2019 Land Rover Discovery SVX are enormous. This SUV looks much meaner and the exterior features are looking very aggressive. The biggest change is the front and rear bumpers that are restyled and are sitting up higher. The recovery hook is now a lot easier to access, thanks to the new bumper trims. Both bumpers are sporting bright accents, just like the 20-inch aluminum wheels.
Skid plates comes in silver colors and are protecting the vehicle from the trail damage. The Discovery SVX comes with 11.1 inches of ground clearance more than the regular model and it can cross 35.4 inches of water. We personally like the all-new Tectonic Grey exterior paint and features such as the grille and air vents are done in Narvik Black color.
2019 Land Rover Discovery SVX interior is pretty neat
The interior of the 2019 Land Rover Discovery SVX won’t depart from the base Discovery model. The design and the layout are exactly the same, however, this interior is luxurious and very upscale. Most of the optional features on the base model are standard in the SVX variant. That includes gray leather seats and orange contrast stitching. The overall interior design is pretty neat and the interior can still accommodate up to seven passengers.
The biggest change is the switch from the regular rotary shift knob to the pistol-grip shifter. The same shifter can be seen in some of the Jaguar’s models as well. The rest of the interior is premium as well and most of the treatments are done in Rush Orange accents. That includes rubber floor mats, door panels, and terrain response knob.
2019 Land Rover Discovery SVX engine and transmission
The regular Discovery model will still ride on a 3.0-liter V6 gasoline engine. However, the 2019 Land Rover Discovery SVX will use a 5.0-liter supercharged V8. This is also the first V8 powertrain that is under the Discovery models. According to Land Rover, this unit delivers 518 horses and 561 lb-ft of torque.
An 8-speed ZF automatic transmission is in the offer, along with the numerous driving systems. For the start, Discovery SVX will use a two-speed transfer case for the four-wheel-drive setup. The active center differential is in the offer, along with the hydraulic active roll control and various driving modes.
2019 Land Rover Discovery SVX price and release date
The price of the all-new 2019 Land Rover Discovery SVX starts at around $75,000. The price of the base model is set at $50,000, so the price difference is significant. However, the SVX model comes with premium interior design and the powerful 5.0-liter V8 engine. This model will go on sale in the first quarter of 2019.
