The Land Rover Discovery provides families with luxury and performance

The Land Rover Discovery is a luxury SUV that exudes both presence and performance, and you're sure to turn heads around Monterey CA when you pull up in one. Visit our Seaside Land Rover dealership this week to shop our fine selection.


The Land Rover Discovery has three trims and two engines. Each one gets either a 3.0L gasoline with 340 horsepower, 332 lb-ft torque, and towing up to 8,201 pounds, or there is a diesel option. The 3.0L diesel has 254 horsepower, 443 lb-ft torque, and towing up to 7,716 pounds. Horsepower isn't the only thing these models have going for them, though! Unlike most luxury SUVS, the Land Rover Discovery (and its other new model siblings) have off-roading chops, in case you want to get away from the Salinas pavement for a few hours.

Useful Seating

Unlike the smaller Land Rover Discovery Sport that has an optional third-row, the third-row is standard on the bigger Land Rover Discovery. You'll have room for up to seven, and the third-row has stadium seats which allow the passengers out back (usually the youngest in the family) to still see the road ahead. We also love the Remote Intelligent Seat Fold app you can get on the HSE and HSE Luxury trims to automatically fold your seats. You can do this while waiting in the checkout line and your seats will be ready once you arrive! It also senses when seats are occupied with a person or items, so nothing gets squashed on accident.

While we're talking about seats, let's touch on the upholstery and the different levels on each trim:

  • SE (base): you'll have standard leather seats
  • HSE: this trim has beautiful, grained leather upholstery
  • HSE Luxury: you'll find even higher-quality Windsor leather

This luxury SUV has ample technology across the three trims. To start, all have a standard 10-inch touchscreen, power tailgate (gesture sensitive on the HSE and HSE Luxury), and LED headlights. As you move up, there's premium Meridian speakers, navigation, and ambient lighting.

To see why so many drivers from Santa Cruz CA and beyond love the Land Rover Discovery, stop into our dealership this week. We'll take you on a test drive, go over financing options, and hopefully send you home with a new SUV and a big smile on your face.
