Due to be revealed alongside the 2010 Range Rover (click here for details and photos) at the New York Auto Show, the Discovery 4 – LR4 for the States- comes with refreshed looks inspired from the more luxurious Range Rover, a more premium-feel cabin and the British firm’s new twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter common rail diesel engine that is mated to a revised ZF HP28 6-speed automatic transmission. The updated Discovery 4 / LR4 is scheduled to go on sale in the UK this September.

The revised headlamps and tail lights now incorporate LED technology while there are also new 19-inch alloy wheel designs and, for the first time, a new 10-spoke 20-inch wheel is available as a factory option.

Land Rover’s team paid more attention to the Discovery’s interior that has received a serious makeover with a redesigned dash and instrument panel, a new centre console that is now inclined towards the driver, new steering wheel with revised switch layout and new seats. Also new are the 5-inch TFT screens in the instrument cluster displaying key information and a new Portable Audio Interface with MP3 player and i-Pod connectivity.

Even though it delivers 29 percent more power and 36 percent higher torque than the 2.7-liter V6 diesel which will continue to be offered on the Disco, fuel economy is improved by 9 percent, delivering 30.4mpg UK (9.3 l/100km or 25.3 mpg US) on the EU Combined cycle.

Land Rover has also improved the Disco’s vehicle dynamics on and off-road by tweaking the suspension, adding larger brakes and revising the Terrain Response and Hill Descent Control systems.
