Details of the updated-for-2014 Land Rover Discovery have emerged ahead of its appearance at next week’s Frankfurt Motor Show.

The big news involves engines and - oddly - badging, with the 2014 Discovery to become a V6-only affair.

Displaying obvious faith in the model’s reputation, Land Rover will also replace its own name with the word ‘Discovery’ across the front edge of the bonnet for the first time ever.

Engine badging will move from the tailgate to the front doors with the tailgate also losing the ‘4’ badge – leaving just ‘Discovery’ - but the V8 badge from the current model won’t be among the choices.

Jaguar Land Rover’s new 3.0 litre supercharged V6 petrol engine will replace the naturally aspirated 5.0 litre V8 from the current model and will be the only petrol-powered option.

The SCV6-bagded engine produces 250kW and 450Nm, leaving it 26kW and 60Nm short of the V8 it replaces but still capable of a 0-100km/h time of 8.1 seconds.

Fuel figures for the SCV6 are expected to be around 11.5 l/100km, making it roughly 17 percent better than the outgoing V8’s figure of 13.9 l/100km.

Two 3.0 litre diesel V6 options will also be available, with the turbocharged TDV6 producing 155kW and 600Nm along with the supercharged SDV6 making 183kW and 600Nm continuing on from the current model.

Both diesel options have the same 8.8 l/100km fuel figure, and all 2014 Discovery models will feature the same ZF eight-speed automatic transmission.

Elsewhere, the new Discovery gets new front styling, two new alloy wheel designs in 19- and 20-inch and a longer list of standard comfort and safety features.

The 2014 Land Rover Discovery is expected to arrive in local showrooms in March next year, with pricing and specifications to be confirmed closer to launch. The current Discovery 4 range is priced from $68,545 to $129,545 plus on-roads.
