Say hello to the 2019 Land Rover Discovery SVX, not to be confused with the old-school Subaru coupe of the same name.

It's meant to go off-road, and Land Rover made a bunch of modifications to the standard Discovery to boost its capabilities.

On the lighter side, the forged aluminum wheels are wrapped in 275/55/20 Goodyear Wrangler all-terrain tires.

Land Rover raised both the unibody chassis as well as its air suspension system, using revised suspension components to increase the car's breakover, departure and approach angles.

Its two-speed transfer case will help drivers traverse gnarly terrain, and it works in conjunction with a variety of other systems, including hill descent control and All-Terrain Progress Control.
