We are all in the same boat. I loved my 2008 and 2012 MB 350 diesel GLs, but the last one was getting long of tooth, so I bought a 2018 Discovery HSE Luxury with the Td6 engine. No experience yet, as we haven't had occasion to go anywhere this season. Here are a couple of observations, however. First, just as with the GL, you'll need the adapter between the 7 pin outlet on the vehicle and the tailer in order to generate enough resistance for the lights to work. Second, if you get the air suspension, which I did, the manual will advise against using a load distributing hitch. The experts at Can Am advise otherwise, so I am going with their recommended hitch. Third, I had a heck of a time matching my electric brake controller (a Curt, which I had used on both my GLs), and the Discovery. The local shop I used just couldn't find a harness that would match both the controller and the car, so with the very forthcoming support of the national Land Rover people, the LR dealer in Santa Fe, NM, took on the search. They ordered a Prodigy 2 controller and the proper harness and mounted it for me, and all seems to be fine. As we speak, I'm setting it up to get it properly matched to the car. Sorry I can't provide more answer from experience, but I'm optimistic, as the Can Am people told me that the Discovery is one of the best tow vehicles I could have chosen to pull my 2013 27' Flying Cloud.
