    I wanted to create a thread where we can all combine notes on the SVX. I'm eagerly waiting the ability to order through my dealer though they seem to be the typical clueless dealer...

    I too am waiting on information regarding the SVX. I almost bought an HSE D5 a few months ago but couldn’t quite pull the trigger on it because of the looks. When i saw the SVX pictures I finally saw what I wanted out of the truck. My only concern going forward is where they price it out at. Hard to justify it if it’s up around 100k.

    Very cool!
    But yeah, after reading about the engine they are putting in it, it makes me think the price will be out of reach for most folks that want it.

    $75k - $80k and I’ll buy it. More than that creeps into other vehicles that I feel would suit me better.

    It's a shame they didn't release a version of this minus the V8 during the D5 launch.
    Might have helped the negativity some have against this iteration (or not, who knows)

    Noticed they took all references to the Disco SVX off LRUSA. What's up? I'm still lobbying SWMBO for the SVX, as this intrigued her while the D5 remains on her "no way" list.

    I agree, couldn't trade my V8 LR4 for the D5. Wife hates the look of it and how you see under the hood rather than over the hood when looking out the windshield. (And she is 5' 10") SCV8 in the SVX may help me deal with the jellybean shape and hideous tailgate design.
