We’ve given Land Rover Discovery a complete design and engineering overhaul for 2017, adding new features to assist with hitching and towing.
Discovery is ideally equipped to cope with the demands of transporting horse trailers and boats - acting as the official vehicle for Burghley and the Land Rover BAR team. It’s no surprise then that Discovery was recently voted Tow Car of the Decade, with the new model looking set to continue the legacy.
Discovery maintains its impressive 3,500kg towing capacity and introduces a host of new features designed to make the process of hitching and unhitching your trailer safer and less time-consuming.
Drivers can adjust Discovery’s air suspension and rear-end ride height with the flick of a switch (-60mm to +75mm) to make hitching easier on uneven surfaces. Discovery’s electric deployable tow bar prevents you from getting your hands dirty when preparing to connect the vehicle to the trailer. Our optional Nose Load Measurement feature allows drivers to measure the weight of the trailer before setting off - crucial when hauling close to or at the maximum tow weight to avoid vehicle damage.
1. Towing Weight
Discovery has a maximum towing weight of 3500kg.
2. Trailer Stability Assist
The vehicle stability system safely controls trailer sway.
3. Hitch Assist and Tow Assist
Camera-based systems make hitching and reversing a trailer easier.
Once safely hitched and ready for the road, Discovery uses a host of electronic aids to make your towing experience safer. We’ve installed rear-view cameras to make reversing your trailer around corners and out of your driveway safer. We also provide Trailer Stability Assist as standard which automatically reduces torque or applies the brakes in response to sway. This keeps your trailer safe and secure behind Discovery when navigating corners or driving through adverse weather conditions.
See how the Discovery makes hitching, unhitching and towing stress-free.
Discovery’s new towing features keep the vehicle feeling safe and secure whilst on the road. Discovery also integrates features that makes towing simple and stress-free in the real world - whether you’re halfway up a mountain or hauling a horsebox.
