How Much Can a Land Rover Discovery Tow?

Since every Land Rover Discovery comes standard with all-wheel drive, you can always tow heavy cargo with confidence. However, your maximum Land Rover Discovery towing capacity will vary depending on the engine that you select:

2.0L P300 i4 Gas Engine

  • Power — 296 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque
  • Speed — 0-60 mph in 6.9 seconds, 125 mph top speed
  • Towing — 5,952 pounds

3.0L P360 i6 Gas Engine

  • Power — 355 hp and 368.1 lb-ft of torque
  • Speed — 0-60 mph in 6.2 seconds, 130 mph top speed
  • Towing — 8,200 pounds
  • Availability – Optional on the Discovery R-DYNAMIC, Standard on Discovery Metropolitan Edition

So, what kind of equipment can you transport with the Land Rover Discovery towing capacity? Even the 2.0L engine can manage midsize boats and midsize campers, as well as flatbed trailers that are carrying several ATVs or waterskis. If you’ve got bigger dreams, it’s worth it to upgrade with the 3.0L i6—and you can always contact us with any questions about loading cargo or hooking up a trailer.
