Land Rover models
31 Aug 2001
THE most obvious change for 2001 Freelanders is the switch from four-cylinder petrol engine power to V6, and the introduction of a new turbo-diesel engine. But there are many others improvements. The engine has forced improvements in the transmission (now auto-only with the V6), front-end structural design, and steering, braking and suspension systems. Other improvements centre on the air-conditioning system, standard dual front airbag deployment (driver's airbag capacity has increased from 45 to 60 litres, front passenger's airbag from 120 to 150 litres), switchgear placement and the number of standard luxury items on the ES spec. Three-door model also now has driver's seat lumbar adjustment.
