Land Rover Canada announces price of two-door Freelander SE3

Toronto, Ontario – Land Rover has added a fourth model to its existing line of premium sport-utility vehicles – the Freelander SE3. The sporty 2-door shares its 4-door stablemate’s mechanicals and 2,557 mm wheelbase, but it has twin removable sunroof panels and a detachable rear hardback for open-air motoring. The SE3 will be available in December for an MSRP of $37,400.

“The Freelander SE3 has capability and personality that is distinctive – an upscale package that can take you to remote places and bring you back in style,” says Jacques Parent, vice president of Marketing for Land Rover Canada. “It’s like no other open-air vehicle on the market, as it offers permanent all-wheel drive, four-wheel electronic traction control, Hill
Descent Control and four-channel anti-lock brakes. We’re confident Canadians will be very excited with what the Freelander SE3 has to offer.”

The SE3 features a black composite A-frame brush bar and silver underbody brush plate; 17-inch
Triple Sport Evolution alloy wheels; and exterior colours such as Borrego Yellow and Tangiers Orange. Inside, it has black “Technical Fabric” seats, a 240-watt, 9-speaker harman/kardon
sound system with single in-dash CD player, and leather-wrapped steering wheel, which contains buttons for the cruise control and audio system.

On top, there are roof rails that run down the back of the vehicle for snow and surf boards, kayaks and mountain bikes.

The 2003 Freelander SE3 comes standard with air conditioning, power windows, cruise control, power steering, heated front windscreen, side view mirrors and rear window. The interior provides room for five, with supportive front bucket seats, a 60/40-split rear bench and convenient storage space throughout the cabin. There are 46.6 cubic feet (1320 litres) of cargo area with the rear seats folded.

The SE3 shares the 5-door Freelander’s variable intake 24-valve, 174 horsepower V6
engine and CommandShift five-speed automatic transmission, and fully independent suspension.

Land Rover has 20 dealers in Canada.
