For the compact SUV, see Land Rover Discovery Sport. The Land Rover Discovery is a mid-size luxury SUV, from the British manufacturer Land Rover. There have been five generations of the vehicle, the first of which was introduced in 1989, the second called the Series II update in 1998, the third generation, titled Discovery 3, launched in 2004 and was marketed in North America as the Land Rover LR3. 1993 Land Rover Discovery TDi 2.
The Discovery Series I was introduced into the United Kingdom in October 1989. The company code-named the vehicle “Project Jay”. Both were fitted with five seats, with the option to have two jump seats fitted in the boot. Land Rover employed an external consultancy, Conran Design Group, to design the interior. The original transmission was a dual-ratio five-speed manual with drive via a transfer case with a lockable centre differential. The designers of the original model had been forced to economise and use the “parts bin” of the -then parent company, Rover.
In 1992, the Discovery received several additions and improvements. Before 1994, the Discovery was available with either the 2. 5-litre 200 Tdi engine or the 3. Early V8 engines used a twin SU carburettor system, switching to Lucas 14CUX fuel injection in 1990.
The transmission was a permanent four-wheel drive system, with a high and low range transfer box, locking centre differential at the transfer box. In Australia, the Series I launched in April 1991, available only as a three-door estate in 3. In 1994, many changes were made to the Discovery. 5 L V8 engines were replaced with the 2.
