A brief introduction to Land Rovers

Very brief actually because so many websites have been extensively writing about it.

  • The brand was funded in 1948, in England, as a fightback to the US Jeep.
  • The first Land Rover was later named "Series One". Safer and slightly more sophisticated than a Jeep, which served as a model, it was soon followed by the SII / SIIA from 1958.
  • The Series Two were a complete redesign: chassis was all new, more power, more space, more capacities. The dash remains at the center of the cockpit.

The chassis, body panels, engines, transmission remain  unchanged when the SIII is introduced in 1971. The main changes are more comfort (helped by the introduction of plastic components) and, visually, the headlamps now migrated to the wings.

A major change in 1985 with the introduction of the 90/110/130 line. The design remains mostly unchanged but the mechanic and transmission are upgraded. Coil suspension, brake discs and modern engines are part of the new offer. The front panel is now flush with the wings.

The 90/110/130, later renamed Defender, will be produced until 2016: Land Rover then stopped producing off-road vehicles.

So many years after getting out of the production line, each Land Rover has been through many  lifes, many adventures and many modifications, which means that today, hardly no Land Rovers  can be found to be identical.
