A while ago I thought that the Disco 3 price would jump significantly given the value of the dollar etc;
Well the new pricing and standard inclusions really show that there was plenty of fat on the old pricing.

SE-V6 up from $65,390 to $66,490

S-TDV6 $67,590

SE-TDV6 $75,990

HSE-TDV6 $86,590

HSE-V8 $92,990

Air suspension and Terrain response system standard on "S" model.
Hi-Ice sound system standard on ES.
The Premium Ice system from the R/Rover (13 speakers logic 7 surround sound system.) standard on HSE.

The UK site only has versions sold there, but yes, it does seem that they all come with air-suspension now.

The weak pound will help in some countries, but I suspect that dealers won't change prices much, to protect residuals.

Discovery 3 "S" now ONLY comes with Air Suspension & Terrain response.:) No coil sprung version for the Australian Market.
Only has 5 seats & the seats are cloth trim. A trade off for the price to stay similar to the old pricing.

Be interesting to see the street prices. I pulled over 20% off the RRP of my 06 model and I don't think I got a particularly special deal.

This is the time to be buying things if you have the job security. People are desperate to sell, interest rates are down, etc.

Cheers, Steve

So on a 5 seater, what happens to the space where the extra two seats fold down in to - does that become extra storage ?

The jack, tools, etc live under the rear part. Under the front part is open space, just waiting to be utilized.

The biggest thing I hate about D3 pricing is the $10K difference between the V6 and the TDV6 - a couple of grand for sure but 10 is a bit much.

I guess when the TDv6 is in so much demand car makers can ask the diesel premium.

I wonder if the TDV6 price might come down as sales might slow given the price disparity between petrol and diesel. At my local Mobil garage today in Canberra E10/ULP was 85.9 cents a litre :) while diesel was 125.9 cents a litre :mad: I know premium ULP is dearer for V8's, but the V6 is supposed to be able to run on E10 as this engine in the US has been using this mix for the last 10 years in California.;) Or have the LR boffins radically changed the software :confused:
In the recent price fluctuations diesel has moved only around 6 cents a litre while ULP has moved as much as 35 cents a litre.
So go figure on their pricing formula :confused:

Re the price diff of the V6 to the TDV6...

IMHO it's not that the TDV6 is expensive, its that the Ford V6 is cheap to manufacture....there's millions of them out there in some guise or another where as the TDV6 is relatively new.

......... even tens of millions for its age WhiteD3 .....

If you look at the prices in S. Africa , the V8 and diesel are only 1% difference in price ....... now .....
tax adjusted for LCT , which skews our retail price , the V8 is 5.5% more here ...... it's all down to whatever an importer wants to do in that country.
If LRA wanted V8 SE ..... they'd be here ....... but they're rather ripoff people at HSE prices ......market share is not of interest ....... only margin.
We don't have the American business ethos here , but the British one.

I think that this has to do with the different fractions that can be obtained from crude oil and the higher demand for diesel as much of europe now uses predominately diesel.

+++ LCT, stamp duty, rego....the RRP is just a dream. Or what you can get back to after all the other costs.

The manufacturers basically collude to say it's an "industry standard". Nowhere will you see any justification for it other than "the other guys do it".

Only way it'll change is legislation.

As the D2 is in for service I have a 09 TDV6 " S" as a loaner....boy I miss my D3 :(. Tell you what though, would be good if it came in the 7 seat. In terms of new prices....unless your not paying it...would be nuts to buy new as they depreciate so horribly. I bought my HSE for $110k from memory...sold 2 yrs later for $58k. If I had been sensible and bought second hand and tipped the $20k I had into it at the time....I'd still have it. I am just going to wait like a vulture and get a decent, low km, typical school mum D3 and have my way with it :cool:.

Regards

I tried that in 2007 when I bought mine. At the time I was commuting to Melbourne each week. 4 days in Melb, 3 days in Brisbane. Looked high and low but the deals on 18 month old TDV6's were terrible at the time. Hence me buying the V6 new. Maybe now there's some 3yo old examples on the market it'd be better buying.

:eek:

They offered me a 5 seat V8 HSE for 70K - brand new. When the dealers drop the new prices that much, you know it will be a depreciation disaster for anybody who bought before. Like Mark, I tried to get a used one, but there was nothing available at a sensible price so I bought new.

I though all SE's and HSE's were 7 seaters??

They brought in some 5 seat HSEs for a while. They didn't sell well and were flogged off at a discount. I forget the reason, was the RRS not available when the D3 first launched? Maybe it was a stopgap for that?

I decided that 7 seats was more important to me than electrically adjustable seats. As the wife and I are the same height we don't need to move the seat.

I was also concerned about resale as everybody would say "I thought they were all 7 seats, what happened to this one?"

Got one privately back in Dec '08 (V6 SE Black '07 built) with 20k on the clock
for $40k, I thought it was a good deal. Had a couple of issues of small issues (EPB sticking and rough tramission change) all sorted under warranty, happy so far.

They're now adding the Technology (Sat Nav and Bluetooth phone) and Bright (shiny bits everywhere) Packs as standard on HSE's, plus roof rails. My dealer tells me there's no HSE's available because LRA isn't bringing them in except on special order. They're stocked to the gunwales with V6 SE's, which have now dropped in price to $59,990 plus $1,800 for met paint. I also hear there's a 3.0 TdV6 around the corner, anyone know anything about that?
