1997 Land Rover Freelander Owner's Manual
If you did't find the information you need, we advise you to look at other years of manufacture of your car.
The first two engines that were fitted to the 1997 Land Rover Freelander were:
• Petrol 1.8 liters for 118 horsepower;
• Diesel with a turbine of 2.0 liters for 96 horsepower.
These engines were placed transversely and they were driven directly by a gearbox. The rear axle was connected through a special clutch.
In addition to these two engines, the first-generation Land Rover Freelander was also equipped with:
• Diesel 2.0 liters for 148 horsepower;
• Petrol 2.5 liters for 177 horsepower.
The car was produced both in an all-wheel drive version and with a drive exclusively on the front axle. Gearboxes were put differently: mechanical and automatic in 5 steps.
The first generation Land Rover Freelander was produced in several body styles. It was possible to purchase 5-door and 3-door versions. At the same time, the manufacturer offered a modification not only with a hard top but also with a soft one – it could be partially removed if desired, leaving the roof only above the first row of seats.
