Freelander with other Land rover models

Η πρώτη γενιά του Land Rover Freelander βρισκόταν στην παραγωγή από το 1997 μέχρι το 2006 και παραμένει μέχρι και σήμερα, ένα από τα best seller μοντέλα της βρετανικής εταιρίας. Από σήμερα ανήκει και επίσημα στη γκάμα των μοντέλων Land Rover Heritage, όντας το όγδοο Heritage μοντέλο, έπειτα από τα Series I, II και III, το Range Rover Classic και το Range Rover P38 μαζί με τα Discovery 1 και 2.

Ένα μοντέλο για να ανήκει στην “κληρονομιά” της Land Rover πρέπει να έχει σταματήσει η παραγωγή περισσότερο από 10 χρόνια και από το 2006 η Land Rover συνέχισε να στηρίζει τους ιδιοκτήτες μέσω της προμήθειας ανταλλακτικών. Τώρα, όμως, οι ιδιοκτήτες θα υποστηρίζονται από έμπειρους τεχνικούς της μάρκας, με την Land Rover να εξασφαλίζει ότι οι πιστοί ιδιοκτήτες θα συνεχίζουν να απολαμβάνουν το όχημά τους για πολλά χρόνια, καθώς πάνω από 9.000 “κωδικοί” είναι διαθέσιμοι για το Freelander 1 από την Land Rover Heritage.

Produced between 1997 and 2006, the Land Rover Freelander 1 remains one of the brand’s best-selling models and is now officially a Land Rover Heritage vehicle. Land Rover Heritage specialises in cars, services, parts and experiences for classic Land Rover models and the Freelander 1 becomes the brand’s eighth Heritage model. The others are Series I, II and III, Range Rover Classic and P38 Range Rover plus Discovery 1 and 2.

A Heritage model is defined as a product that has been out of production for longer than 10 years and the Freelander 1 was first produced in 1997 and its production run ended nine years later in 2006 when Freelander 2 replaced it. Ever since production of Freelander 1 concluded, Land Rover continued to support owners through the supply of spare parts. Now, owners will be supported by the brand’s Heritage experts and ensure loyal owners continue to enjoy their vehicle for many years to come.

Over 9,000 individual Land Rover Heritage Part numbers are available for the Freelander 1 and it adds to the brand’s comprehensive parts catalogue, which already features over 33,000 items for both Jaguar and Land Rover Heritage vehicles.

Tim Hannig, Director, Jaguar Land Rover Heritage, said: “With the addition of the Freelander 1 as a Heritage model, Land Rover is reaffirming its support and commitment to its loyal customers by providing exceptional cars, services, parts and experiences for models more than 10 years out of production. Genuine Land Rover Heritage Parts for Freelander 1 have been engineered and tested in extreme conditions. As such it gives our customers total peace-of-mind that their vehicles are maintained to the highest possible standards.”

When it was launched, the Freelander broke the mould by pioneering the compact premium 4×4 class and at the time had 16 patented features including Hill Descent Control (HDC), Immediate Reduction Drive (IDR), a viscous-coupling (VCU) and an innovative ABS system designed specifically for off-road situations.
