We missed the debut of Land Rover's replacement for the aging Freelander to be dubbed the LR2 in Detroit. We figured it would pop up eventually at the British Motor Show in July, Paris Motor Show at the end of September or the newly rescheduled L.A. even later. But it seems the upscale mini-ute is ready for its close up as these leaked brochure pages suggest. We can't glean any details from the images as the resolution is a bit too low for the text to be read. LR3-inspired styling, a more upmarket interior and a pair of moonroofs looks like a good place for the new LR2 to pick up where its underachieving predecessor left off.

Follow the jump for two more highrez brochure pages...

      Its a FACE-LIFT. Not a redesign.

      Face-Lift:
      1. Adds new front and rear ends.
      2. Re-do the inerior (as in "new" explorer)

      = New model good for another 5 years.

      I like the look of this refreshed Ford Escape, but I thought you were going to show us pix of the new Land Rover?

      How is this different from the first generation. It looks more like a face lift. Is this being dubbed a redesign?
      • 8 Years Ago
      I wish I can buy this. :(

      If it were a true redesign. The current comments thread would read more like "it looks like a cross betweeen an explorer and a monkey"....

      Very cool. Looks nice and hopefully will not carryover any past issues.

      I'm with the rest of you. Is this an upscale version of the Ford Escape and Mazda Tribute? This care is useless and a waste of materials. It's just another piece of s*#t that Land Rover is trying to sell to the pretentious!

      Good lord, no it's not a facelift. It uses a totally new platform that has nothing to do with the old one. It has a bunch more space than the poorly designed previous model and will use a modern motor instead of the crappy old low power Rover unit.

      It is a complete wheels-up redesign different in every way.

      She's a busy looking girl. Lot's going on. Nothing new, or original. Looks like a DRag Queen who throws everything on that's in her closet. ZZZZZZZZZZZ
