Fleetwood Upgrading Discovery Diesel Pusher

Posted By RVBusiness On April 27, 2013 @ 8:49 am In Breaking News | No Comments

Plans call for a mid-May debut of Fleetwood RV Inc.’s restyled 2014 Discovery diesel pusher Class A — the first major upgrade of Fleetwood’s popular Discovery since 2007. Updated inside and out, the 36- to 40-foot 2014 Discovery is available in four floorplans – two with full-wall slideouts – on a 32,000-pound GVWR Freightliner XCM modular chassis adapted to Fleetwood’s PowerBridge platform and equipped with a 380-hp Cummins 8.9L diesel engine. MSRPs range from $270,000 to $286,000. The exterior sports oversized headlights with LED accent lighting in addition to a front slideout generator access door and revised colors and graphics. Inside is a more automotive wraparound dash with faux-wood inlays and soft-touch surfaces while new interior decors and wood options have been added. “Discovery has been Fleetwood’s iconic diesel brand for years and is a mainstay of our product lineup, so the design changes for 2014 are evolutionary,” reports Kyle McCrary, senior vice president of product planning and design for Decatur, Ind.-based Fleetwood. “Our process began by placing a new focus on appealing to both husband and wife. For him, we started from scratch with a new dash design to make it more driver-centric with the most modern switchgear and premium materials. For her, we kept the traditional interior styling but updated it with warmer fabrics and wall coverings, and new hardwoods. And to add some drama, we’re using massive 24-inch-by-24-inch polished tile plus an updated galley that includes new LG countertops, glass-tile backsplashes, a spice shelf and additional outlets. These updates will put Discovery at the top of its class for 2014.”
