The official pictures of the Land Rover Freelander II are out. As expected, it takes its cues from the Range Rover and from the LR3 (headlights, grille and so forth). It has also grown in length by 5 cm.
Big news also under the hood: a 3.2-liters V6 gasoline engine that outputs 233 ps that can take the Freelander from 0 to 100 km/h in 8.9 seconds, while the average fuel consumption is 11.2 liters/100 km; a 2.2-liters turbo-diesel engine that outputs 160 ps, with a torque of 400 Nm and an average fuel consumption of 7.5 liters/100 km (available also with a particulate filter).
The Freelander will be available either with a 6-speed manual gearbox or with an automatic transmission. Traction is on all 4 wheels, obviously, with systems such as Terrain Response, an integrated control system for the suspensions, torque redirection and hill descent already seen on the Range M.Y. 2007 and Gradient Release Control (that assists the driver when releasing the brakes on slippery slopes).
