Land Rover has announced prices for the third-generation Discovery.

Prices are £2,000 more than the out-going Disco, with the entry-level 2.7-litre TDV6 model starting at £26,995.  This model features five seats only and conventional steel springs rather than air suspension.  However, it does feature the excellent 2.7-litre V6 turbodiesel engine jointly developed by Ford and Peugeot, that you’ll also find in the Jaguar S-Type.  It’s received a few modifications to make it better suited to use in an off-roader.

The TDV6 can be fitted with seven seats, air suspension, and Land Rover’s new Terrain Response system, which allows the driver to select settings for the vehicle’s various electronic aids depending on the road conditions.  This pushes the price up to £28,995, however.

The TDV6 S model costs £31,995 and adds 18-inch alloy wheels, automatic climate control instead of conventional air conditioning, parking radar, cruise control and xenon headlights.

Further up the ladder, the TDV6 SE costs £36,995 and adds automatic headlights, rain-sensing wipers, leather seat trim and satellite navigation.

Top of the trim ladder is the TDV6 HSE, which in return for your £41,995 offers 19-inch alloys, six-speed automatic gearbox, moon roof and a Harman/Kardon sound-system.

A 4.4-litre V8 petrol models are also available, if you can afford the fuel.  Prices are £5-6,000 higher than their diesel equivalents.
