Land Rover Frisco would like to proudly announce the arrival of the Discovery Vision Concept that stunned the masses at the 2014 New York International Auto Show in April. This memorable and ritzy event took place on the deck of the USS Intrepid, now serving out its retirement as the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum in the Hudson River in New York City.
For the past decade, Discovery models sold in North America have been designated the LR3 and LR4, but the Vision Concept marks the return of the Discovery nameplate and is back to redefine its territory in the leisure category. The Discovery Vision Concept showcases the total essence of a future family of SUVs built on Land Rover’s key principles of emotive design, unrivalled capability and ultimate versatility.
The seven-passenger Discovery is loaded with high-tech goodies, including Gesture Control, Remote Control Drive, laser headlights, Smart Glass, Laser Terrain Scanning and Transparent Bonnet. Most, if not all of the technology will begin to trickle out over the next decade on Land Rover’s production vehicles, setting a new standard in innovation and technological features.
This remarkable Concept SUV will be also be equipped for true off-roading, as evidenced by the inclusion of the latest generation of the Land Rover Terrain Response system. Optimizing systems for snow, ice, mud, inclines and so forth, the system will incorporate lasers and cameras to automatically scan the terrain and select the best possible mode. The new Wade Aid also uses lasers to judge the depth of water hazards before the vehicle begins to cross them, which, for a lack of a better word, is just plain awesome.
