The Land Rover Discovery comes in four different trims for 2017 and with a choice of two different powertrains. A 3.0L supercharged V6 is the base engine, providing 340 horsepower and giving the Land Rover Discovery a respectable 0-60 time of a claimed 6.9 seconds. The optional engine is a 3.0L Turbodiesel making 254 horsepower and 443 lb-ft of torque. While acceleration is slightly slower for the diesel, the extra torque provides a more relaxed powerband, while fuel economy is also improved. Besides, with a 0-60 time of 7.7 seconds, the diesel version can't exactly be called slow. On all Discoveries, power is sent to all four wheels via an 8-speed automatic transmission.

The Base SE trim is available only with the gasoline engine and includes most of the amenities one would expect on a $50,000 vehicle, and then some. Standout features on the SE include 19-inch wheels, a panoramic glass roof, automatic headlights, power folding and heated mirrors, rain sensing wipers, a parking assistance system, a 10 speaker stereo and an 8-inch touch screen for the interior.

HSE models get 20-inch wheels, LED headlights, fog lights, a panoramic sunroof and keyless entry. Inside, HSE trimmed Discoveries come with an upgraded 380 watt Meridian sound system, a bigger 10-inch screen, a navigation system and 12-way adjustable seats.

The Luxury trim features unique 20-inch wheels, chrome door handles 16-way power adjustable Windsor leather front seats, heated front and rear seats (all seven of them!) a powered third row of seating, an 825 watt 14-speaker sound system, tri-zone climate control and additional ambient lighting. Interestingly, the Luxury trim includes some extra off-roading goodies as well, such as a twin-speed transfer box with a high and low range for off-roading, and an electronic air suspension system which can raise and lower the vehicle.

there is a Discovery First Edition trim, which includes just about everything from the Luxury trim along with bigger wheels, a surround Camera system, an active key and body colored door handles.
