8Next-gen Land Rover LR2 spotted... unless it's the LWB Evoque

The spy photographers we work with are fairly adept at figuring out what it is, exactly, they happen to be taking a picture of that day. So, when the shooters send notes along with their images, we don't often quibble too much with the conclusions that they've drawn.

Evoque's Older Brother Gets Some Love

10Land Rover to offer 16 models by 2020

The Range Rover Evoque was a bold new direction for Land Rover that proved successful, but if reports are to be believed, it is only the beginning of an onslaught of new products. According to a report from Autocar, the brand associated with both opulent motoring and rugged off-road capability is embarking on a massive lineup expansion, with the goal of producing 600,000 vehicles annually and 22 million vehicles by 2020.

34Land Rover LR2 gets updated look, turbo four power for 2013

Land Rover is being liberal with its amenities, distributing luxe features from its Range Rover Evoque, 2013 Range Rover and Jaguar sedans to its entry-level 2013 LR2. Right out front is a new engine: the same 240-horsepower, 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder with 250 pound-feet of torque found in the Evoque is now the sole engine offered in the LR2. It replaces the 3.2-liter six-cylinder and brings with it the benefits of being 88 pounds lighter, having 10 more horsepower and 16 more pound-f

31Land Rover to hire 1,000 in attempt to keep up with Evoque demand

Automakers are always attempting to show how popular their new vehicle is, but there are only two ways to truly prove a smashing hit. One is to deliver outstanding sales numbers, and the other is to experience demand so strong that new employees must be hired to help assemble them.

41Land Rover dumping alphanumeric names

According to a new report, Land Rover will soon adopt a global naming structure that allows the company's products to carry the same nomenclature around the world.

6Developing developments: BMW 1-series cute 'ute still planned

We've been trying to avoid reporting on the rampant rumor mongering that seems to take place every month in some of the European buff books. One month you'll have tales of a new rear-engined V-Dub, while on the other end of the newsstand you can read all about the supposed new flagship from Skoda. Don't get us wrong, there are a few mags from across the pond that we devour, but some are the automotive equivalent of the Weekly World News. Autocar can sometimes be more the same.

26Land Rover Freelander - official pics

Official pics of the next Land Rover Freelander are out and we have to say, color us impressed. The Freelander takes styling cues from all over Land Rover's lineup, including LR3-type headlights and a Range Rover-esque vent right behind the rear wheels. The whole vehicle just looks more substantial than the current model, which couldn't hold a candle to a Ford Escape let alone a BMW X3.

Land Rover has announced that the 2007 edition of the Range Rover will replace last year's 3-liter BMW-sourced diesel with a new V8 turbodiesel. Autocar reports that, while yielding virtually the same fuel economy as its predecessor, the new powerplant lends considerably more oomph to the King of the Range, cutting its 0-60 mph time by more than 4 seconds, to a downright respectable 8.5 seconds.

That stalwart icon of Land Rover all-terrain capability, the Defender, will be with us at least until 2010. What Car? reports that the legendary 4x4 is slated to receive major updates starting next spring that could carry the boxy off-roader well into the next decade.

The 18 competitors, selected from more than 10,000 applicants from around the world, will drive, climb, kayak, abseil, bike and navigate over a 4,000 km route spanning four countries and two continents in 28 days.

14Land Rover Freelander becomes baby LR3

A computer-enhanced illustration based on spy shots of the next Land Rover Freelander suggest Landie’s littlest ute will look a lot like its more attractive big brother, the LR3, when it debuts later this year at the Paris Motor Show. The current Freelander’s sheetmetal is, well, a bit stale to put it nicely.
