2003 Land Rover Discovery SE 4WD 4dr SUV (4.6L 8cyl 4A)
I bought the Disco used as a third vehicle for weekend fun. After driving across the Santa Cruz river and trudging through 2 feet of mud and silt... I'm totally impressed if not shocked. So were the heavily modified trucks and Jeeps I drove past. Rocky terrain found here in Arizona is a non issue as my new backcountry driving experiences have taught me. This truck may not be refined (I've owed a Lexus and a baby Benz) but it's endearing, fun, versitile and more stares and positve comments than the shiny Lexus and little Red Benz. People just seem to gravitate towards its bold styling and appreciate its brutish stance. It guzzles gas no doubt, but the V8 sounds way cool, especially on start up
4x4 system, hill descent mode, dual sunroof, styling. Deep sounding V8 with serious torque is impressive.
More rear legroom, but you give that up for a shorter wheel base which make it a serious off roader.
