Landrover Range Rover History
The Landrover Range Rover was first thought about as a larger more luxurious version to the Land Rover collection. It was first designed in 1967, with the first generation coming into production in 1970.
The first generation (1970-96) was powered by a Rover V6 engine, which over the years was changed as the engines were improved upon and more versions became available. The early models had pretty basic interiors and were improved on as this vehicle evolved.
The second generation (1994-2002) received advancements to the engines. A 2.5 BMW engine was available since the takeover of the Rover Group, which also meant the takeover of Land Rover. More premium trims became available, confirming the status of Range Rover as a luxury SUV.
The third generation (2002 - ) is the current version in production. This was the first version designed by BMW and it received many improvements, further taking it up the class, making it more luxurious. The manual transmission was discontinued in this range and some of the 5-series BMW functions and electronics were added to the vehicle. The Sport and Evoque were released in this generation.
There is such a vast range of available engines throughout the lifespan of the Range Rover. The petrol engines have come in: 3.5, 3.9, 4.0, 4.2, 4.4 and 5.0 with the diesel engines being available in: 2.4, 2.5, 2.9, 3.6 and 4.4L. The age, engine size and fuel type must be taken into consideration when determining the fuel economy of the vehicle. As these vehicles are so big and have large engines they use up a lot of fuel. The smaller sized diesel engines are the most economical of the range.
The earlier versions came in 4-speed automatic and 5-speed manual gearboxes. The latest version ceased producing a manual gearbox but made 6 and 8-speed automatic gearboxes available. Have a look at the Landrover gearbox page of our website to find your gearbox parts.
