Land Rover has been in business for more than sixty years and,
although they were not the first company to specialize in rugged,
off-roaders (that distinction goes to Jeep), they were certainly the
first to turn them into luxury SUVs. The first Land Rover was
released in 1948 by the UK automaker Rover and was designed by
Maurice Wilks to serve as a domestic replacement for the US Army’s
WWII Jeep and was, in fact, first produced using a Jeep’s chassis.
The key difference between the so-called Center Steer Land Rover and
the US-built Jeep was the former’s increased body size. The first
Land Rovers were armored using a special alloy termed Birmabright
due to the shortage in steel during the post-war years which gave
the vehicle increased durability and corrosion resistance.
The Series 1 was the first Land Rover to be released and sported
four-wheel, optional doors and a canvas roof and, just like its
inspiration the Jeep, it was built for off road excursions. Due to
the success of the Series 1 the Series II rolled off the production
line in 1958 as a more powerful and versatile replacement available
in two or four doors or even as a 2-door pickup. The Series IIA was
soon to follow with a roaring 2.25L diesel engine and came in
soft-top and hard-top wagon configurations. With the acquisition of
the company by Leyland Motors, the next and most famous vehicle to
be fielded under the Land Rover was the iconic Range Rover which hit
the streets and country roads in 1970.
The 80s began with the company changing hands once more as
British Aerospace took the helm and finally brought the brand to
American shores by 1987. The first vehicle to hit US streets was the
Range Rover with the Discovery arriving only a short two years
later. Sales were strong but the brand had yet to become synonymous
with luxury as the 80s wore into the 90s but that was all about to
change with Land Rover’s acquisition by BMW in 1995. The next model
to be released was the Freelander (which would become the LR2) was
well received but of even more note during this period was Ford’s
purchase of the brand in 2000.
The second millennium marked a time of turmoil not just for
automakers around the world but for the Land Rover as well. As a
result of the Great Recession of 2008 Ford was forced to sell the
company to Indian car make Tata, a strange choice indeed for a
marque that sells only luxury SUVs and does not make any vehicles or
parts outside of this narrow segment. Nonetheless, Land Rover still
manages to excel at what it does: producing rugged yet refined
vehicles that are as comfortable being driven by a valet on Park Ave
as they are by a rancher in Montana’s Big Sky country.
