PostSubject: new disco event   Wed Apr 16, 2014 10:49 pm

I'm heading to the Disco event tomorrow in the city. I'm going with Carlos from Bronx Auto Works, Greg and Dan from NJLR.

For those who have not been following, the disco concept they revealed, today Gerry McGovern had said that it will be developed into the Discovery Sport. That is the badge that will replace the LR2. Built on the aluminum RRS frame. I will be uploading pics and info as I get it tomorrow to the Facebook page.

Looking forward to seeing the Discovery Sport go on sale next year and later this year we will hear about the mini Disco and the full size disco that will go on sale in 2016.

Exciting times!

oh your going to see the new ford explorer coming out ? if its that new pos disco they (TaTa) can keep that shit. totally take away from the "Discovery" and its roots and what it means to own one. i hate it with the passion of 1000 suns. guess no more camel trophy type of events.


just my 2cents

Looking forward to seeing it up-close tonight. I'm also hoping that this means that after ten years, Land Rover no longer thinks we're too stupid to understand words, and is dumping LR2/3/4 for a proper name like Discovery.

I still can't get over how big the LR2 replacement the Discovery Sport will be. Wondering what other names we will see besides just Discovery & Discovery sport. we still have the smaller one which will be talked about later this year. Maybe Discovery SWB for the mini 5 seater?

The best news I got out of them is that we are just about definitely getting diesel Land Rovers in the US next year. Apparently there's been some legal issue with the British Ford engine plant where they had to build their engines, and it's not until next year that they can develop their own global-ready engine technology that can work here.

So this may well be available in a 30MPG version...in the USA.

still dont like it if it would come DIESEL TURBO 5/6 SPEED MANUAL!


(but sure as shit would look into it!!  Rolling Eyes  Embarassed )


come the ef on TaTa.... now lr brand is going to shyt. looking like every other car out in the market. ya i under stand things change but really? the vehicle you see above has no personality AT ALL. ya they might badge it a "discovery" but theres nothing to it that makes it what we know and love about them.
i remember when everyone bashed lr3/4 when they came out and seems like everyone wants one now. hell i got one. but i dont know i would get the same warm fuzzy feeling i get when i hope into my d1 and lr3.... Crying or Very sad

Remember they are not marketing to lr wheeling enthusiests cause most of us can't afford em, they are marketing to the rich so needs to look like the porscha , BMW, Benz, etc. Days of the trophy are long gone, having a vehicle that stands out/stands alone is a thing of the past, looking different is not the in thing
