Land Rover unveils Discovery 3 Commercial

Date: Monday, February 12, 2007

A little later than expected Land Rover has announced the availability of in-house LCV conversions of its Discovery 3. Featuring permanent four-wheel drive and all-round air suspension as standard, both models are powered by a 2.7-litre V6 turbodiesel capable of producing 188 bhp (4,000rpm) and developing 324 lb/ft (1,900rpm) of peak torque.


A six-speed manual gearbox comes as standard, but an automatic option — also six-speed — is available for an additional £1,505.

Dispensing with the rear seating provides a 2.1m3 load area which features a full length phenolic floor covering. A two-piece bulkhead prevents the load from joining the cab occupants in the event of an accident. Maximum towing weight for a braked trailer is 3,500kg.

Gross payload is rated at 634kg and access to the load area is via either the two hinged side doors retained from the passenger-carrying models or the rear split top/bottom-hinged tailgate. The rear side windows have been filled in to hide the load area from prying eyes.

On sale from 19 March the Discovery 3 Commercial has a basic price of £24,034 and comes with 17in alloy wheels, ABS, volumetric alarm and an electronic handbrake. Move up to the £27,013 XS Commercial and it adds powerfold door mirrors, roof rails, 18in alloy wheels, cruise control, heated front screen and washers, rear parking sensors and air con to the package.
