Freelander Comprehensively Improved For 2004

New 2004 Freelander


Land Rover’s award-winning Freelander, the UK’s best-selling 4x4 since its 1997 launch, has been comprehensively improved and upgraded for 2004. The changes include a new interior and major external revisions, including new face and tail. There is also an additional derivative, the Freelander Sport, the sharpest handling and sportiest Land Rover production model ever.

  • Fresh exterior look, adopting Range Rover design cues
  • Upgraded interior, including new look facia, more comfortable seats and new trim colours and materials
  • New Sport derivative, optimised for on-road driving performance – the sportiest Land Rover ever
  • Choice of three engines and three- or five-door body styles
  • Full-time 4x4, plus high-tech electronic driving aids such as Hill Descent Control and Electronic Traction Control
  • Premium compact 4x4, nimble and practical on-road with uncompromised off-road ability

"As well as being an international best-seller, the Freelander also invented a new segment – the compact premium 4x4 sector," said Matthew Taylor, Land Rover’s managing director. "The latest changes are designed to improve the premium nature of the Freelander, and make it an even more desirable and successful vehicle."
