New discovery svx - land rover reveals all-terrain champion at frankfurt iaa. Land Rover has revealed the Discovery SVX – the ultimate Discovery for off - road enthusiasts seeking epic adventures.

It’s demonstrating this with the Land Rover Discovery SVX concept that debuted on Tuesday at the 2017 Frankfurt auto show. It gives increased wheel articulation and improved body control, enhancing off - road traction while also reducing body roll when on-road driving.

A few years ago, I sat with Jaguar Land Rover Special Vehicle Operations boss John Edwards while he outlined the three pillars of the SVO division: luxury, performance, and capability. We've seen the first two by way of vehicles like the Range Rover SV Autobiography and XE SV Project 8, among others. But when SVO speaks to capability, it specifically means off-road prowess – hence the arrival of this, the new Land Rover Discovery SVX.

The SVX has increased ground clearance and employs long-travel dampers, meaning the approach, departure, and breakover angles are all increased. The 20-inch aluminum wheels are wrapped in SVX-specific 275/55R20 Goodyear Wrangler all-terrain tires. Land Rover’s incredible Terrain Response 2 off-road system has been retuned to offer more grip when the going gets tough. Finally, for the first time, the Discovery SVX features Hydraulic Active Roll Control that allows for increased wheel articulation – important for slow-going off-road maneuvers.

Land Rover has officially unveiled the new Discovery SVX following its appearance earlier today. The off - road modifications don’t stop there as the SVX boasts center and rear locking differentials.

Another Discovery first is the addition of Hydraulic Active Roll Control - Land Rover ’s clever active anti-roll bars. Best known for making the Range Rover Sport handle flat and not-at-all-SUV-like, they also allow for greater wheel articulation, further adding to the SVX ’s off - road baddassery.

Of course, Land Rover hasn’t stopped there. The Discovery SVX gets a unique powertrain: the company’s supercharged, 5.0-litre V8, with 518 horsepower and 461 pound-feet of torque. You can’t get that on the normal Discovery, which means the SVX is not only the most off-road capable model, it’s got the most power, too.

To visually differentiate the SVX from lesser Discos, Land Rover has fitted new front and rear bumpers with new skid plates, as well as Rush Orange accents around the body. The Tectonic Grey paint is also SVX-specific, and inside, orange accents are found on the two-tone leather interior.

The best news? This isn’t just a Frankfurt Motor Show concept. Land Rover says the Discovery SVX will enter production sometime next year. We can’t wait.
