LAND ROVER DISCOVERY is a mid-size luxury SUV, from the British car maker Land Rover. There have been four generations of the vehicle, the first of which was introduced in 1989. It was the last user of Rover V8 engine, which was introduced in 1960s. The Discovery Series I was introduced into the United Kingdom in 1989. The company code-named the vehicle "Project Jay". The new model was based on the chassis and drivetrain of the more upmarket Range Rover, but with a lower price aimed at a larger market segment intended to compete with Japanese offerings. This was the only Discovery generation with a four-cylinder engine. Featuring a 4.6 liter engine and a locking center differential, the Discovery II provides the driver with some of the best visibility of all of the top 4×4’s out there, and it also includes an excellent payload capability and overall feel to the vehicle.
