The Car Pro Test Drives the 2021 Land Rover Discovery
Thursday on Sunrise LBK with Dave King and Tom Collins, The Car Pro Jerry Reynolds joined Dave and Tom to talk about his test drive of the week, what he drives as his personal car, as well as other auto industry news.
This week The Car Pro was test driving the 2021 Land Rover Discovery, a car that finally saw a redesign after many years with some big changes for 2021.The biggest complaint that Jerry previously had with Range Rovers were the infotainment systems being slow and complicated, but they have very much improved that on the new model. This model has a 3 liter 6 cylinder engine with a turbo charger putting out 355 horses, which Jerry says is plenty. Additionally he said that Range Rovers are known for a few things, such as their interiors being nice, which is certainly the case here, as well as their 4 wheel drive systems. Jerry went as far as to say that this one is the best in the industry for 4 wheel drive. The car has a good ride, good drive, is quiet inside, has a very small 3rd row seat that could fit a child, and has a window sticker price of $73,000 which Jerry says is in line with its competitors, such as the BMW X5, and the Audi Q7. Reynolds ended by saying that if you use the 3rd row seat on a regular basis for adults, this is probably not for you, but if you are just wanting a 5 passenger with an auxiliary seat in the back for emergencies or a child, then this is a nice nice SUV.
Jerry was also asked what kind of car he drives as his personal car. Reynolds said that he had used various Range Rovers for many years, but he recently switched to the Porsche Cayenne turbo with 541 horses, and quite likes it. Additionally, Jerry has a subscription where he can switch cars whenever he wants and they will bring him a new one.
Finally, The Car Pro talked about some stories on his website carprousa.com. One story talks about the Best Used Cars to Buy Right Now where he gives a list of cars by price range. Another story talks about the Barrett-Jackson that is going on right now, and Jerry provides the TV schedule for people who want to follow along. Yet another story is a review of the new 2023 Toyota Sequoia, which Jerry says is just stunning.
