FURTHER IMPROVEMENTS FOR RANGE ROVER
 
   The Range Rover received the most significant improvements ever undertaken to its suspension for 1991.
 
   The new suspension package - which improves handling yet retains its classic ride comfort - is one of a host of improvements designed to further consolidate Range Rover's unique position as a luxury car with unparalled off-road performance.
 
   The key elements of the suspension package - available as standard on Vogue and Vogue SE models - include fitting anti-roll bars increasing roll stiffness by 25 per cent.
 
   The result is that the amount of body roll is reduced on cornering, but the traditional luxury feel of compliant suspension is maintained.
 
   The changes have not affected the vehicle's legendary off-road capability as full axle articulation is retained. In fact there is better body control in off-road conditions.
 
Features include:
 
- Cruise control as standard on all Vogue SE automatic models
 
- Glass sunroof as standard on Vogue SE emphasising a feeling of spaciousness
 
- Automatic anti-dazzle mirror, activated by light sensors on Vogue and Vogue SE models
 
- Map reading lights on Vogue and Vogue SE
 
- Heated front door locks on all models
 
- Improved sound insulation
 
- Recessed rear seat belt floor anchorage points
 
- New speakers with improved bass response
 
- Heated front seats on Vogue SE, (option on other models)
 
- Drivers seat position memory on Vogue SE
 

 
PRODUCT IN DETAIL
 
Suspension
 
   The suspension package, engineered to improve handling yet maintain the traditional the traditional Range Rover luxury ride comfort, is a standard feature on Vogue and Vogue SE models and optional on other derivatives.
 
   A key effect of the package is the increase in roll stiffness by 25 per cent so the amount of body roll on cornering is reduced. Off-road capability is not affected, as the ground clearance and axle articulation remain unchanged.
 
   The main changes to the suspension concern the anti-roll bars, the change to spring stiffness, and different damping characteristics.
 
   The anti-roll bars, fitted to front and rear, change the roll stiffness from 755 Nm  per dergree to 940 Nm per degree - an increase of 25 per cent.
 
   The stiffness of the front springs is the same as on previous Range Rovers - 133 lb/in on petrol models and 150 lb/in on diesel derivatives.
 
   But the rear springs, which had a rising rate on previous models from 133 lb/in to 178 lb/in to control the vehicle when laden, now have a linear 150 lb/in rate.
 
   The dampers, which control the rate of body roll whilst cornering, have been turned to improve ride comfort, using the anti-roll bars to control the initial roll instead of the dampers as on previous models.
 
   In addition, careful attention has been paid to the anti-roll bar mounting bushes which have been optimised fir refinement. At the front the stiffness of the leading control arm (C-spanner) bushes that mount the front axle to the chassis, has been reduced by 60 per cent.
 
Cruise control
 
   Cruise control ias standard on all Vogue SE automatic models and is optional on Vogue automatic derivatives. The system is operated by a push button on the auxiliary switch panel, and set and cancel buttons are located an the steering wheel. Cruise control operates at over 30 mph/50 kph.
 
Glass sunroof
 
   Sunroofs change from steel to glass to give a greater feeling of spaciousness. A pull-across blind is fitted to eliminate glare when necessary. The glass sunroof is standard on Vogue SE and option for other models.
 
   The new sunroof provides 8 mm more headroom and the headlining gives better finger access to the sun visors.
 
Fuel system
 
   A completely new fuel system was fitted to all Range Rovers in 1991. The enlarged fuel tank, made of high impact resistant polyurethane, gives an increase in capacity.
 
   The corrosion resistant tank holds 18 gallons (81.8 litres) compared to the capacity of 16.8 gallons (76.4 litres) of the previous tank.
 
   For usable capacity for petrol models increased by 14 per cent (2.2 gallons/10 litres) and on diesel models by 10 per cent (1.6 gallons/7.3 litres).
 
   The fuel filler flap is released by a button on the steering coloumn.
 
Automatic anti-dazzle mirror
 
   An automatic anti-dazzle mirror in fitted as a standard feature on the Vogue SE model. Light sensors on the front and rear of the mirror housing measure the amount of light directed and compare it to the amount of light coming through the windscreen.
 
   If the difference between the light volume is high the mirror automatically dims to avoid temporarily dazzling the driver. The mirror returns to normal as soon as the light differential drops, or if reverse gear is selected.
 
   The mirror, which has a high and low setting and a manual over-ride switch, is screen mounted with a fine wire from the cant-rail.
 
Heated front door locks
 
   All four-door Range Rovers are fitted with heated front door locks. Heating elements within the lock mechanisms are activated by holding the handle in the open position.
 
   In addition, courtesy lamps are automatically extinguished if any door is inadvertently left open for longer than 10 minutes.
 
Heated front seats
 
   Heated front seats are another feature new to the Range Rover. Available as standard on the Vogue SE and as an option on other models, the seats are individually oprated by switches located either side of the radio console.
 
   Thermostatically controlled, the heated seat is switched off when a temperature of 36 degrees centigrade is reached. It is automatically switched on again if the temperature of the seat drops below 26 degrees centigrade.
 
'Memory' driver seat
 
   On the top of the range Vogue SE, driver comfort and convenience has been enhanced with the introduction of memory seat. The switch for the memory is incorporated in the electric seat position control providing a facility to pre-set two positions of the driver's choice. The door mirrors can also be memorised to the two pre-set seat positions.
 
Improved sound insulation
 
   All models have improved sound insulation to further reduce interior noise levels. Additional insulation has been fitted to the front floor area.
 
 

 
THE LAND ROVER RANGE
 
   The Land Rover range has been extensively developed in recent years, with the result that the marque currently sets the standard in all three sectors of the four wheel drive vehicle market.
 
   In recent years with the introduction of new engines, improved transmission, suspension and interiors and major exterior revisions, the Defender is now the ultimate working/utility vehicle. In the personal transport and leisure vehicle sector, the well equipped Discovery has won many awards for both its design and off road capability. After more than twenty one years the unique Range Rover remains vitually unchallenged in the luxury sector.
 
   Production of the original Land Rover started in 1948 and since the 1.5 million vehicles have been produced. It is estimated that more than one million are still running. The Solihull-based company is the only dedicated four wheel drive vehicle manufacturer in the world, with sales of more than 60.000 annually. Exports account for 70 per cent of production.
 
DEFENDER
 
   The Defender was launched at the beginning of 1991 and is based on the 90 and 110 range. The four wheel drive Defender is known throughout the world as a tough workhorse able to venture into areas impassable to other vehicles. The original Land Rover was launched in 1948 and although similar in appearance has been constantly developed over the years.
 
   Defender is available in 90 and 110 inch wheelbase form with a choice of body styles: hard top; soft top; station wagon and pick up. Whatever type of working vehicle a customer requires a Defender model will provide the answer, whether it is for carrying bales of hay around a farm or for taking a group of ten people on an outward bound course.
 
   Most customers specify either the powerful V8 3.5 litre petrol engine with 134 bhp and 187 lb ft torque, or the 200Tdi engine which was launched with the Discovery in the autumn of 1989. Producing 107 bhp and 188 lb of torque at a very low 1800 rpm makes this engine ideal for off road and towing work. The predecessors of these engines - 2.5 litre petrol and the naturally aspirated diesel - can still be ordered via the factory.
 
   Land Rover places great importance on its range of Defender optional equipment and accessories to ensure that customers can tailor their vehicles to their exact requirements.
 
DISCOVERY
 
   The award winning Discovery was first available as a three door model fitted with the 200 Tdi engine and a carburettor version of the petrol 3.5 litre V8 unit. However, one year later, a five door higher specification version with the fuel injected engine was launched. Like the Defender, all four models use a permanent four wheel drive system, simple to use high and low ration gearbox and differential lock. Suspension in engineered to allow maximum axle articulation ensuring that the Discovery lives up to its Land Rover off road pedigree.
 
   The ingenious interior has unusual features such as storage pockets in the roof lining above the rear seating area and fascia mounted radio controls. A raised roof line means that headroom and luggage capacity is spacious.
 
   Revisions to the range took place for the 1992 Model Year vehicles. Both three and five door models received a change to the gearbox. Dual cones are now incorporated on both first and second gear synchromesh. This reduces shifting loads which results in a lighter action when changing to and from these gears.
 
   The comprehensively equipped five door models, which are fitted with items such as electric windows, alloy wheels, central locking and two additional rear passenger seats, now also come with subtle side rubbing strips, an interior console bag and colour keyed load space covers.
 
RANGE ROVER
 
   It is now more than 21 years since the Range Rover was launched. Since then it has become a "classic" due equally to its unique design and Land Rover's policy of continual improvement. It remains virtually unchallenged at the luxurious end of the four wheel drive market.
 
   During the last five years an extensive development programme has seen changes in all areas of the Range Rover. The most significant being the uprating of the V8 fuel injected petrol engine from 3.5 to 3.9 litres, the introduction of the luxurious top of the Range Rover Vogue SE, and the re-engineered suspension which provides exceptional high speed handling characteristics without compromising off road performance.
 
   In addition to the 185 bhp V8 engine which produces a hefty 235 lb ft torque, a high speed 2.5 litre turbocharged diesel engine is available. In line with Range Rover's up market image, automatic transmission comes as standard on the Vogue SE and as an option of the petrol engined Vogue.
 
   On the Vogue SE cruise control, anti-lock braking, leather upholstery, heated front seats, electric sunroof, colour-keyed alloy wheels and air conditioning represent just some of the equipment fitted as standard.
 
 

 
LAND ROVER - A BRIEF HISTORY
 
   In 1946 the Rover Car Company moved to Solihull - a factory originally built to make aircraft.
 
   In the immediate post war years Rover was under strong government pressure to make cars in volume, especially for export. However, steel was in short supply.
 
   During this time two brothers, Maurice and Spencer Wilks, were Rover's Chairman and Chief Engineer respectively. Maurice owned a farm and had bought an ex-US army jeep. Driving it on the farm quickly convinced him that Rover could build a better four wheel drive machine, using the same basic engineering ideas.
 
   Thus the Land Rover was originally conceived as a short term model. It had to be simple to build, strong and easy to operate. It would be ideal for the farmer and the developing Third World. To overcome the steel shortage, the body panels would be made of aluminium. The first prototype had a centre steering position eliminating the need for left or right hand drive models. Other prototypes had power take-offs and were secretly tested pulling ploughs, harrows and other farm implements.
 
   Land Rover was launched at the Amsterdam Motor Show on April 30th 1948 and was an immediate success. Orders poured in from all over the world.
 
   King George VI tested one at Sandringham and Balmoral and ordered the first of many to be used on royal estates.
 
   Everyone wanted a Land Rover - farmers, foresters, police, armed forces. However, the greatest demand came from Africa and other parts of the developing world. Land Rover could go where no vehicle had gone before.
 
   Demand for the vehicle mushroomed. Agreements to build under licence were made with Belgium and Spain. At one point Land Rovers were being assembled in more than 30 countries from knock down or KD kits supplied from the UK.
 
   Over the years, the Land Rover has been constantly refined and improved. The Series II arrived in 1958 and with it the 2.25 litre petrol engine.
 
   The 250.000th Land Rover rolled off the production line in November 1959 with the half million milestone being passed just seven years later.
 
   Numerous derivatives followed including a forward control version and an air portable 88" lightweight model in September 1968.
 
   The greatest advance, however came with the introduction of the Land Rover 90" and 110" (1983 and 1984 respectively) models offering permanent four wheel drive and Range Rover derived helicodial spring suspension. In addition to the now already available V8 petrol engine as fitted on Range Rover, the four cylinder petrol and diesel engines were enlarged to 2.5 litres and mated to a five speed gearbox providing much improved on and off road performance.
 
   In 1986 a 2.5 litre turbo charged diesel engine was introduced offering 28 per cent more torque and 25 per cent increase in power over the naturally aspired version.
 
   Later, further refinements included power steering, black bumpers, a lighter grey interior and on County models a stereo radio cassette and sunhatch. Improved exterior aesthetics with a ribless roof panel and rivet-free upper body sides were introduced on all Hard Top and County models.
 
   In 1990 the Land Rover was given a name - Defender. All diesel Defenders were given the new 2.5 litre direct injection turbo charged diesel engine first introduced in the Land Rover Discovery in 1989.
 
   The new 200 Tdi engine boosted the Defender's power by 26 per cent and its torque by 25 per cent while improving fuel consumption by 25 per cent.
 
 
THE RANGE ROVER
 
   Back in the early 1960's Land Rover engineers began looking at the possibility of a luxury station wagon with both on and off road capabilities. Such a vehicle needed a more powerful engine than the one available in the Land Rover. By chance, Land Rover's then Managing Director spotted, and secured the rights to, the ideal powerplant - a light aluminium alloy V8, offering tremendous low-down torque and impressive on road performance.
 
   The Range Rover made its debut in 1970 and was available in just one guise - a three door estate with four speed manual gearbox and permanent four wheel drive. The Range Rover was, and still is, unique, so much so that one model was exhibited at the Louvre as an example of modern sculpture - the original brochure extolled the vitues of a hoseable interior while the British Trans Americas Expedition proved the new vehicle was every bit as tough as the Land Rover by crossing the Darien Gap in 1972.
 
   Over the years, the choice of Range Rovers has been extended to meet public demand. A four door model was launched in 1981 and automatic transmission the following year. In 1983 a five speed manual gearbox was introduced. Two years later the Range Rover Vogue received fuel injection, and in April 1986 the Range Rover  Turbo D made its debut. March 1988 saw the launch of Range Rover's new flagship, the Vogue SE, which features air-conditioning, 4 speed automatic transmission, Connolly hide upholstery and electric tilt slide sunroof, all as standard.
 
   At the 1988 British International Motor Show, a chain drive transfer bax and a viscous control unit were introduced. The VCU locks the centre differential automatically the instant that traction is lost.
 
   In 1990 major improvements included the introduction of the 3.9 litre V8 engine replacing the 3.5 litre unit, the VM 2.4 litre engine increased in size to 2.5 litres, and anti-lock brakes introduced as an option on all models, standard on Vogue SE.
 
   The Range Rover received the most significant changes ever undertaken to its suspension for the latest models which went on sales in the UK in January 1991. The key elements of the new suspension package included the fitting of anti-roll bars increasing roll stiffness by 25%.
 
   The result is that body roll is reduced on cornering, but the traditional luxury feel of compliant suspension is maintained as is the Range Rover's unparalleled off-road performance.
