That's great, but the outgoing public aren't going to see that.SFulcher said:It may look the same, but it is a completely different vehicle underneath - gone with the old Maestro platform, replaced by a 4x4 version of the Focus platform, and of course there is no K series or KV6 in the new version.
I assume it's Ford unit.SFulcher said:The one advantage it will have is it will re-introduce the petrol engine to the range. Since Powertrain went into administration in April 2005, Land Rover has been unable to offer this option. Does anyone know if the TD4 is to be replaced by a Ford/PSA engine, or will it continue to use the BMW M47?
yes they are not going to build a three door .iburnley said:I quite like it really, it retains the overall freelander look but i think it looks sufficiently different overall, clearly the back is going to look strange with no spare wheel.
Is there only going to be a 5 door model?
they arent building a 3 door, and i'm pretty sure it is because they have plans to introduce a range below the Freelander, which is often named the "landie" project. this will be smaller and i guess a bit like the old suzuki vitara in size and body styles. have to wait and see though.paynemgzr said:yes they are not going to build a three door .
cant remember why though!!
No they didnt they only ran out last month.SFulcher said:The K series reserves ran out about 2 months after Powertrain fell into administration last year.
Didn't the Freelander originally use the L series?
Landrover has always been about evolution tho. Admittedly the current Disco is a bit of a jump from the previous one, but the styling for the Defender can be traced all the way back to the Series 1 in an unbroken line. Likewise the RR has always kept the castellated bonnet, and a few other styling cues.Liam Olf said:I was expecting more of a revolution, not an evolution.
