2019 Land Rover Discovery Sport Parked


The 2020 Land Rover Discovery is known for its power as well as its luxury. But what about its towing capabilities? The 2020 Land Rover Discovery offers up to 8,201 pounds maximum towing capacity, so if all the seats are taken or the maximum cargo capacity of 83.7 cubic feet is maxed out in this five- to seven-passenger SUV, you can still tow a trailer behind you, or even a camper, a small boat, or a couple of ATVs.

Discovery Capability

With powerful engines and a high maximum towing capacity, Land Rover also wants to make sure you are safe and in control of your Land Rover Discovery when you are pulling a heavy trailer or other type of load behind you. Explore these advanced technologies and engineering solutions for a capable drive even on slippery roads and rough terrain:

  • Advanced Tow Assist: This optional feature helps you control the direction of both your vehicle and your trailer (or item you’re towing) when driving in reverse.
  • All-Terrain Progress Control (ATPC): This available system helps you set and maintain a steady speed when driving over challenging road conditions. It works like low-speed cruise control and allows you to focus on steering and handling.
  • Dynamic Stability Control and Electronic Power Assisted Steering: This feature enhances your on-road capabilities to ensure you’re stable and you can steer confidently.
  • Hill Descent Control®: This feature can be activated when you are driving down a steep hill–it brakes each individual wheel and helps you maintain a slow and steady speed for a safe descent.
  • Terrain Response® 2: This feature allows you to choose the best drive mode option for your driving style or the current road conditions.
