The 2015 Discovery Sport HSE

Land Rover Dallas would like to take you on a quick journey inside the world of the all new Discovery Sport HSE which has finally arrived and is now gracing our showroom with its presence.

This luxurious and highly capability seven-seater demonstrates ultimate performance as well as outstanding looks. The “HSE” stands for “High Specification Edition,” meaning an array of additional features combined to offer excellent value.

All Land Rover Discovery Sport models are powered by an advanced, 240 horsepower, turbocharged 2.0-liter inline four-cylinder engine that is mated to a nine-speed automatic transmission, combining powerful acceleration as well as admirable fuel efficiency.

The 2015 Sport HSE comes standard with the renowned Land Rover Terrain Response control system, which allows drivers to tailor vehicle throttle, suspension, stability control and other systems’ behavior with the prevailing road conditions.   Water up to 23.6 inches deep is no match for the Discovery Sport, which also has a 25 degree approach angle and 31 degree departure angle.  Hill Descent Control, Hill Start Assist, Trailer Stability Control, Roll Stability Control and Trailer Stability Assist are also included.

The HSE also features grained leather seating and 10-way power front seats, a fixed panoramic roof, front and rear foglamps, keyless Passive Entry and front and rear parking sensors.  Its Atlas-colored grille with Narvik black surround is quite a site to see,  and you can add even more style by adding one of the three versions of the Black Design Package. One features a Santorini contrast roof, for example, while another includes 20-inch alloy wheels.

This superb SUV is not without its safety features, and the available Vision Assist Package gives you a better view of the road with Adaptive Xenon Headlamps featuring LED Signature and Automatic High Beam Assist. The Surround Camera System gives you a better view of the area around you, and Blind Spot Monitoring with Closing Vehicle Sensing and Reverse Traffic Detection help you avoid hazards at low speeds and on the highway.

We invite you to stop by Land Rover Dallas in the heart of Dallas, Texas to take a closer look as well as a test climb in the long-awaited 2015 Land Rover Discovery Sport HSE. We can assure you that you will be more than happy you did.

Untamed Winds – An Epic Journey Through South America

Land Rover Dallas is pleased to share with you the adventure of a lifetime with “In South America: Untamed Winds,” a project sponsored by the Austin-based travel agency Latin America for Less.  def3

Most of us experience what South America has to offer by hopping on a plane, being escorted from city-to-city and perusing the popular sites.    We fly to Buenos Aires, Lima, or São Paulo and visit spectacular and infamous wonders such as Machu Picchu, Iguazu Falls, and the Galapagos Islands.  Not that there is anything wrong with that,  but sometimes there are those of us “adventurers” out there who prefer to take a bit of a different route.

Longtime friends, renowned filmmakers and daring thrill-seekers Vincent Urban, Clemens Krüger and Stefan Templer decided to set out on an epic four-month road trip across South America in a classic Land Rover Defender.   Along the way, they captured hundreds of hours of footage documenting their journey through the arid Bolivian highlands, all the way down to the wind-swept landscapes of Patagonia in Argentina and Chile.

This spiritual and physically demanding expedition tested their limits as well as the limits of the Defender as they traversed some of the most challenging environments South America has to offer.  The Defender performed with outstanding handling and proved that it could tackle any and all types of terrain including winding muddy paths, rocky cliffs, dusty roads, chaotic city streets, serene beaches and the world’s longest mountain range, the Andes.  In short, the rugged and highly capable Defender exuded raw and robust energy by powering itself through the vast and varied countryside.

The exhilarating and impressive video below will grant you visual access to the grandeur of South America’s diverse landscapes, and viewers will be able to feel the rush of adrenaline along with vicarious joy and excitement.    def

“I hope a viewer is able to feel the time passing, the huge distances, the loneliness, and even the struggles of doing such a trip,” Urban said. “It’s not like Disneyland where you walk from one attraction to another. It’s an adventure.”

“We brought our DSLR cameras and some gear to capture every great moment of this trip.  Lots of winds, emptiness, pampas, bustling cities, animals, deserts and waterfalls – all wrapped up in just under 6 minutes,” elated Urban. “Enjoy the ride!”

We like to think he was referring to his travels as well as his Land Rover Defender!

So sit back, relax and enjoy this truly mesmerizing short film and when you are finished, we encourage you to stop by Land Rover Dallas in the heart of Dallas, Texas so that our courteous and dedicated team can help get you on your way to creating your own monumental adventures!
