|NEWcars: Land Rover Freelander - UK specifications, 07 August 1999|
The Land Rover Freelander has been on sale for just 18 months and has already become the highest selling off-road 4x4 vehicle in Europe. To consolidate this success, Land Rover has revised and improved Freelander's specification, as most manufacturers do at this time of the year for MY2000 (model year). Couldn't have anything to do with the change of registration letter on September 1st, could it?
The three core derivatives that make up the MY2000 are now available in both three-door Hardback/Softback and five-door Station Wagon body-styles. Sales begin this month.
1.8i / 2.0di
1.8 Xi / 2.0Xdi
1.8XEi / 2.0XEdi
Land Rover UK managing director Harry Reilly said: "The Freelander has been an outstanding success since its launch. Freelander customers, both existing and new, have given feedback to help us provide an even more attractive package. The dealer network has also played a major role in passing suggestions onto the Land Rover UK management team."
In addition to the improvements to the Freelander range, Land Rover has also introduced seven new colours - Rutland Red, Alveston Red, Appalachian Green, Icelandic Blue, Oxford Blue, Kinversand Bronze (eh?) and Kent Green.
The Freelander range is powered by the 1.8-litre petrol K-series or L-series 2.0-litre turbo charged diesel engines. The Freelander is covered by a three year warranty - the first year with unlimited mileage. Prices range from UKú16,995 to ú22,995.
Note that the Freelander Commercial specification is not affected by the 2000MY revisions and goes on sale in September priced from UKú17,300.
