The 2022 Land Rover Discovery is available with two powertrains, starting with the 296-hp 2.0-liter engine in the P300. The P360 pairs a 3.0-liter six-cylinder engine with mild-hybrid assistance to produce 355 hp. Regardless of the engine choice, all-wheel drive and an eight-speed automatic transmission are standard.
The Discovery S is already well-equipped and comes with 20-inch wheels, LED headlights, 14-way power-adjustable front seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, and a power tailgate. Driver-assistance tech includes traffic sign recognition, automatic emergency braking, a 3D-surround view camera system, and blind-spot monitoring. All R-Dynamic variants get black exterior detailing and special badging. The R-Dynamic HSE is the range-topper and boasts 22-inch wheels, a Meridian sound system, and 20-way power-adjustable front seats.
The price of the Land Rover Discovery begins at an MSRP of $53,900 for the base model. From there, you can move up to the R-Dynamic S at $56,400. With the larger 3.0-liter engine, the R-Dynamic S costs $61,900 and the R-Dynamic HSE goes for $68,900. The MSRP cost of the Land Rover Discovery excludes the destination charge of $1,350 in the USA.
With options, our Discovery R-Dynamic S came to a grand total of $73,255, including the $1,350 destination charge.
The base Discovery SUV price is lower than its German rivals. By comparison, the BMW X5 goes on sale for $59,400 and the 2021 Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class starts at $54,750.
All Discovery models can be upgraded with a selection of standalone options or packages. On the base model, the Cold Climate Pack adds a heated windshield, heated washer jets, and a heated steering wheel for $600. The Hot Climate Pack bundles together a cooled center console compartment, four-zone climate control, and a cabin air purification system for $1,100. Other add-ons include a tow hitch receiver for $675, adaptive cruise control for $1,325, and four-zone climate control on its own for $800. The cheaper of the two Meridian sound systems costs $360 and the range-topping 14-speaker unit goes for $1,250. Wireless charging can be added for $350
On six-cylinder models, you can opt for the Towing Pack at $1,150, which adds All Terrain Progress Control, Terrain Response 2, advanced tow assist, and a tow hitch receiver. The Advanced Off-Road Capability Pack comes with All Terrain Response Control, Terrain Response 2, and configurable Terrain Response for $700. An active rear locking differential is optional on six-cylinder variants and will cost you $1,100. There's also the Cold Climate Pack with a heated steering wheel, windshield, and washer jets for $600.
The 3.0-liter Discovery with the mild-hybrid system returns the same combined gas mileage figure as the 2.0-liter model and is more powerful, so we would choose it for the added performance. We'd be satisfied with the R-Dynamic S. It's $7,000 less expensive than the R-Dynamic HSE and comes with plenty of features like a powered tailgate, leather upholstery, the 11.4-inch touchscreen interface, a 3D surround-view camera, and traffic sign recognition. Since you're purchasing a Land Rover, we'll assume that off-roading ability is important to you. For that reason, we'd tick the box for the Advanced Off-Road Capability Pack and the Cold Climate Pack. We also think adaptive cruise control is a must in a luxury SUV.
