Amidst the excitement surrounding the Land Rover brand’s record-breaking sales in 2017, you may have missed another important news item released earlier this year: the Land Rover Discovery is the 2018 Four Wheeler SUV of the Year. This is the 45th year that the editors at Four Wheeler magazine have bestowed this distinguished award, a testament to the fact that Four Wheeler is the first and oldest periodical published for SUV, 4×4, and off-road truck fans.
The specific trim that won the award is the 2018 Land Rover Discovery HSE Luxury Si6. Blending pristine on-road performance with jaw-dropping off-road ability, this luxury SUV is virtually peerless. The team at our Land Rover dealership serving Newton, MA loves this vehicle’s unbridled ruggedness: on the power front, a 3.0L supercharged V6 engine outputs 340hp and 332 lb-ft of torque, helping the 2018 Land Rover Discovery HSE Luxury Si6 tow more than 8,000 pounds. As for its off-road chops, this SUV is head and shoulders above the competition. The catalyst is an adjustable air suspension that offers more than 11 inches of ground clearance, a wading depth of 35+ inches, and approach/departure angles of 34 and 30 degrees, respectively.
Meanwhile, cutting-edge technology is everywhere you look: an interactive driver display, TouchPro navigation, autonomous emergency braking, a 4G WiFi hotspot, remote seat-configuration via the Land Rover smartphone app, and much more. And this kind of high-level technology isn’t exclusive to the 2018 Land Rover HSE Luxury Si6: it can be found on other trims in the Land Rover family, including every Land Rover Discovery Sport. In fact, this performance-focused luxury SUV combines advanced technology and off-road excellence in a similar fashion to the 2018 Land Rover HSE Luxury Si6.
