The Jaguar Land Rover Special Vehicle Operations team has gotten their hands on a Land Rover Discovery and now we have the debut of the more capable 2019 Land Rover Discovery SVX. The Discovery SVX is debuting this week at the Frankfurt Motor Show.
While the the Range Rover SVAutobiography and Range Rover Sport SVR are all about performance, the Discovery SVX is concerned more with ultimate capability.
“SVO designers are embedded within the Land Rover team and have worked with our engineers to unleash their own passion for adventure to create another truly desirable and versatile vehicle in the Land Rover line-up,” stated John Edwards, Special Vehicle Operations Managing Director.
The 2019 Land Rover Discovery SVX will be powered by a 5.0-liter supercharged V8 that generates 518 horsepower and 461 lb-ft. of torque. It also gets suspension modifications to enhance driver confidence when tackling the toughest terrain. Hydraulic Active Roll Control gives increased wheel articulation and improved body control to provide more off-road traction while also reducing body roll.
The Land Rover SVX gets unique front and rear bumpers with protective skid plates and exposed Rush Orange-finished metal recovery eyes. It also rides on large 20-inch wheels. The Land Rover Discovery SVX will enter production in 2018.
