  1. 1. Land Rover: 65 Years of 4WD http://www.coventrywest.com/
  2. 2. In 1947, the Rover Company created the Land Rover following the aftermath of the World War II due to the lack of raw materials and because their original factory in Coventry was destroyed. They then planned to create a small economical car for agricultural and military use, which several decades later became one of the most sought after 4WD in the industry. http://www.coventrywest.com/
  3. 3. Early Models Series I - The first car in production, it was originally designed for farm and light industrial use and had a steel box chassis and aluminium body. Series II - Improved car design, curved side windows and rounded roof which is still the design used for its modern counterparts, and the first to use the 2.25L petrol engine. http://www.coventrywest.com/
  4. 4. Series IIA - The same design as the Series II but features a 2.25L diesel engine. Series IIA Forward Control - The first Land Rover export type vehicle, mounting the cab over the engine to have more space at the back. Series IIB Forward Control - Similar to the IIA Forward Control but utilized a 2.6L diesel engine and fitted with an improved heavy duty wide-track axles for better stability. http://www.coventrywest.com/
  5. 5. Series III - Same engine and body and little cosmetic changes, but is the first Land Rover feature synchromesh on four gears and also has improved engine power. Most common Series vehicle with around 440,000 built and the 1 millionth vehicle produced by the company was a Series III. Stage One V8 - Built using the same components as Series III and Forward Control it is made from the first stage of investment by the British Government to improve the Land Rover. Its improvements made it the first Series III vehicle to have a permanent 4 wheel drive, and later on gave birth to the Land Rover 90 and 110) http://www.coventrywest.com/
  6. 6. UK Land Rover Models Defender - initially called Land Rover 90 and 110 which reflected its 110 inch and 93 inch wheelbase. It featured modernized mechanisms including a coil springs, modernised interior and a permanent 4WD system. Range Rover - a luxury type off-road vehicle which is the flagship model and later on became a separate brand name but is still under Land Rover. http://www.coventrywest.com/
  7. 7. Discovery - introduced in 1989, this vehicle has undergone 4 generations with improvement on its engine and cosmetics on each generation. Freelander - a compact sport utility vehicle and is now on its 2nd generation it differs from the other SUV because it uses a monocoque structure rather than the traditional body-on frame design http://www.coventrywest.com/
  8. 8. Range Rover Models Sport - started production in 2005 and also on its 2nd generation which featured a supercharged 4.2L all-aluminum Jaguar AJ-V8 engine, cross linked air suspension and the Land Rover patented Terrain Response System. Evoque - the latest Range Rover model and is a compact crossover utility vehicle (CVU), production started in 2011 and was made to meet requirements for lower carbon dioxide emissions and fuel economy. http://www.coventrywest.com/
