A special run of 50 Limited Edition Freelander 2 models will be made available this June. Featuring unique interior and exterior design elements the Limited Edition model offers added appeal.
An exterior design pack sets the Limited Edition model apart from its contemporaries. The design enhancements include a unique grille insert, fender vent and rear signature strip finished in a new gloss black effect. More pronounced front and rear bibs, side sills and a tailgate spoiler accentuate the design while tailpipe finishers, body painted door handles and mirrors and black finished 19” alloy wheels complete the exterior profile.
Inside the cabin, new sports themed electric seats lead the changes. The Ebony Napoli leather finish with matching door casings, facia foils and door pulls ensure a luxurious environment further complemented by the unique headrest embossing. Premium carpets and Titan painted door pulls further add to the allure while the silver facia elements and pedal kit allude to the vehicles sporty credentials.
Based on the 2.2 SD4 HSE derivative the Limited Edition Freelander 2 features a 2.2-litre turbo diesel with 140kW of power and 420Nm of torque on offer. The use of an Intelligent Power Management System (IPMS) provides ‘smart charging’ of the battery by recovering kinetic energy when the vehicle is slowing wherever possible, rather than consuming fuel by charging when the vehicle is accelerating.
The second generation Asin Warner AWF21 automatic transmission ensures competitive efficiency and emissions. The Torque converter lock-up works over a wide range improving comfort, fuel economy and driveability, while optimisation of internal components reduces weight and inertia for faster shifting.
The Freelander 2 features Land Rover’s acclaimed Terrain Response. The many function of Terrain Response are underpinned by the high levels of body stiffness which provide the best foundation for excellent ride and handling characteristics as well as off-road performance.
The Freelander 2 provides the safest possible environment for occupants. The Command Driving Position provides good visibility of all four corners of the vehicle and narrow A-pillars ensure that forward visibility is not compromised. There are seven airbags: two curtain, two front, two thorax and a driver’s knee bag as standard. The transverse engine mounting not only frees up interior space but offers impressive crash performance, helping the Freelander 2 achieve a 5 star Euro NCAP rating for adult occupant protection.
As with all Land Rovers, the Freelander has been rigorously tested worldwide in the UK, USA, Middle East Australia and Russia in temperatures ranging from -40 °C to + 50 °C and up to 95% humidity.
