Land Rover

Back to International Offroad Club Poland

Land Rover is a British all terrain vehicle and sport utility vehicle (SUV) manufacturer, based in Solihull, England. Originally the term Land Rover referred to one specific vehicle, a pioneering civilian all-terrain utility vehicle launched in 1948 at the Amsterdam Motor Show, but was later used as a brand for several distinct models, all four-wheel drive. Land Rovers are used extensively by the military as well as on long term civilian projects and expeditions due to the superior off-road performance of the marque. For example, the short wheelbase version of the Land Rover Defender is capable of tackling a gradient of 45 degrees, an approach angle of up to 50 degrees, a departure angle of 53 degrees and a ramp break-over of up to 155 degrees - greatly superior any other 4x4 car in production. Today, the Land Rover marque is part of the Premier Automotive Group, a division of the Ford Motor Company, and one of the best internationally known and longest lived nameplates of rugged 4x4 vehicles. Indeed it is believed that 75% of all Land Rovers produced since 1955 are still on the road.

Past and present Land Rover models include:

  • Series I, II and III - the original off-roader

  • Defender - Updated and refined version of the Series line.

  • Freelander - compact crossover 4x4

  • LR2 - compact all-new compact SUV

  • Discovery/LR3 - mid-size off-roader

  • Range Rover - full-size luxury off-roader
