Land Rover models
31 Aug 2001
LAND Rover engineers upgraded the entire braking system for Freelander V6, with the ventilated front discs now larger at 277mm (diameter) x 21mm (thick) and larger front disc callipers fitted. The 254mm rear drum brakes have wider friction faces - up from 38mm to 44mm. A new dual-mode operating mechanism within the drums is designed to give the handbrake greater holding power. A four-channel anti-lock braking system with Electronic Brake Distribution (EBD) is also fitted standard. The ABS system, known as the TEVES MK20 SCS, was selected for its efficiency, quiet operation and improved refinement when using HDC. Pedal feel and response as well as fade resistance were also targeted in the braking system upgrade.

That's because the German manufacturer previously owned Land Rover and provided much engineering input into the current Discovery and Freelander models in particular before passing ownership on to Ford
