Jaguar Land Rover intends on launching a selection of new SVX-badged models following the debut of the Defender SVX last month. 

Land Rover's design boss, Gerry McGovern, spoke to Autocar and said the SVX name would be appropriate for all Discovery models, presumably including the Discovery SPort as well as the next-generation Defender. 

Jaguar could even jump on board creating off-road focused variants of its models, in particular, the E-Pace and F-Pace crossovers. 

“We don’t talk a lot about the [off-road] ability of our cars because they’re road-biased but they could have that capability as we have the tech in the group. I see the opportunity – if Land Rover can do SVR, we can do SVX,” company design director Ian Callum revealed.

The Land Rover Discovery SVX comes courtesy of the brand's Special Vehicle Operation division and it is powered by a supercharged 5.0-liter V8 engine, with 520 horsepower and 461 lb-ft of torque. The SVX also features a Hydraulic Active Roll Control system, raised suspension, long-travel dampers, revised knuckles and 20-inch wheels with Goodyear Wrangler tires. 

JLR says the Discovery SVX will serve as its most competent off-roader until the new Defender arrives.
