    still nah, it's not the engine but the rather the transmission. Maybe you just need too much power to enjoy the ride. I still have my 2004 disco and find it just fine. It's obviously not quick, I have a twin turbo inline 6 mt6 wagon for that ;)

    I rode behind the new D5 for a bit yesterday. It just has too much RR look and not enough LR look. I think it's because the rear bumper basically doesn't exist. The LR4 has a much better bumper that is an actual step whereas the D5 isn't pronounced and just doesn't look like you could step up on it and grab anything off the roof rack. I also just can't get over the missing command seating setup. It's going to be a long road for my LR4 at this point. :)

    Plus the offset licence plate for no reason. D5 = Style > function. D4 = Function > style.

    I am actively searching for a new vehicle for the wife to replace her GLS 450.

    After taking a look at the D5, she asked me to find the lowest mileage, newest LR4 that I am able to locate for her.

    Interesting observation to me, as she cares nothing about offroad capability. She is the classic kid hauler, grocery getter, etc., but the D5 did not make it into the finals for her consideration.

    I can't help but think they missed the mark a bit.

    Two words: Command Seating.

    Actually 4 words. Command Seating Great Visibility

    That's one of the things I love about the LR4. Only vehicles I've sat in with better visibility was my old first-gen Discovery and a Benz G500, which is like driving an aircraft control tower.

    It was a big factor for me as well!
