The Land Rover Freelander 2 is set to receive a mild update for the New Year as the model nears the end of its life cycle.
Land Rover is likely to keep the changes for the facelifted model to a minimum, with the next generation Freelander 2 set to inherit technology developed for the all-new Land Rover LRX production model.
Although speculation also suggests the Land Rover LRX could potentially replace the Freelander 2 badge altogether as buyers opt for the more modern, road-oriented LRX over the more rugged Freelander 2.
This comes as Land Rover made the announcement earlier this week that the LRX would be offered in a two-wheel-drive variant also, a big step for a brand that stakes its reputation on all-terrain ability.
Nevertheless, those with an interest in the Freelander 2 have at least one more model cycle to own one, with the updated version set to receive a revised front fascia and a few interior enhancements.
