Under the Hood of the 2015 Land Rover Discovery Sport
A 240-horsepower 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine paired with a nine-speed automatic transmission sits at the heart of the 2015 Land Rover Discovery Sport in Merriam, KS. If that sounds familiar, it’s the same unit used to power the Range Rover Evoque. The standard automatic transmission routes power to the Haldex All-Wheel Drive system, helping the Discovery Sport conquer difficult terrains on and off the road.
Capable of producing 250 pound-feet of torque at 1,750 RPM, accelerations are quick and energetic. Additionally, fuel economy is enhanced through minimal friction piston rings and tappets as well as the closely spaced gear ratios of the nine-speed automatic transmission. And with 8.3-inches of ground clearance, high air intakes to prevent water entering the engine, and the automatically adjusting front-to-rear torque shifting system, the 2015 Land Rover Discovery Sport in Merriam, KS is a true off-road conquerer.
