Land Rover LR3 Overview

A modern update of the long outdated Discovery, the Land Rover LR3 hit the roads as a 2005 model and was the first vehicle produced since Ford bought the English off-road manufacturer. The Discovery dates back to 1989 and was the best-selling Land Rover model for many years, but its Range Rover-based platform and minimalistic features couldn't compete with the growing upscale 4X4 market.

The LR3 is completely new and boasts several firsts for Land Rover. Its innovative fully independent adjustable air suspension improves on-road performance to match the rugged off-road capabilities of its permanent all-wheel drive. The 300-hp, 4.4-liter V8 is the most powerful engine in any land rover, and the locking rear differential is also a first for this brand. The air suspension and air springs adjusts to terrain, along with the new Terrain Response System. The driver can choose from five settings (grass, sand, snow, for example) and the LR3 adjusts ride height, traction control, braking, gearing, and locking differential to help smooth out the ride and make all-wheel driving simple for any driver to use.

Available in either SE or HSE trims, the LR3 is longer than the Discovery and passengers benefit from its extra legroom. An optional third row fits adults comfortably and both rear rows fold flat in a variety of configurations to accommodate various cargo. Since its introduction, there have been few changes. A V6 engine option became available, and the third row seats became standard in the HSE trim. An elegant ride is helped out by power front seats, leather upholstery, and an optional navigation system with a map of the car. Highlights include the roomy interior, powerful off-road performance, smooth highway drive, and overall comfort, but the LR3 suffers from problems with the electrical system, air compressor, and transmission. It is also quite heavy for its V8 engine to really pick up speed.
