Land Rover's Discovery Vision Concept had its world premiere at twilight Monday on the deck of the Intrepid - a mothballed aircraft carrier turned air, sea and space museum in the Hudson River. Gerry McGovern, Land Rover’s design director, said after showering attention on Range Rover, Land Rover is ready to retool the Land Rover brand. And it will all start with a new family of Discovery models. "Look at it. Look at that strong stance," a proud McGovern said. "It's great design at the very core."
