Land Rover got us used to their exceptional models. However, it wasn’t always clear about the name. From 2007, they launched their LR2 model, which was updated in 2013. Then, it received new engine with turbocharged four-cylinder drivetrain and updated and more luxurious interior. Then, Land Rover launched another nameplate, outside the US called Freelander. Successor of these vehicles won’t be called with either of these two names, but it will be 2016 Land Rover Discovery.

However, it is still vehicle far from production phase, so we need to wait to see how will 2016 Land Rover Discovery look like at the end.
