1987 Land Rover Defender 90, 200TDI Turbo Diesel, 5 Speed Manual, Factory LeftHand Drive. Located in Austin, TX. This truck is a turn key driver. I just droveit on a 400 mile round trip at 70mph. It is not perfect, as it is 30 years oldand has the original paint. It has a few scrapes, dings, and blemishes in thepaint. I searched for the Defender I wanted for several years. I finally locatedit in Spain. I purchased it, and shipped it from Barcelona to Galveston, TX. TheDefender is now registered, titled, and inspected in Texas as a 1987 Land RoverDefender 90. The truck was originally equipped with a 19J Turbo Diesel. Theseengines are not designed for USA highway speed and bit the dust in a month. Iresearched replacement engines and went with a low mileage Land Rover Defender200 TDI. This uses the same transmission and motor mounts, and is an updatedDefender engine used in later model trucks. This engine includes an intercooler,which is not offered with the original 19J Turbo Diesel. This engine has muchmore power and reliability than the 19J. It is leaps and bounds ahead of the oldmotor. History of the truck: This is a factory Left Hand Drive truck originallysold in Italy. The truck stayed in Italy until 2001 when it was purchased anddriven to Barcelona, Spain. I purchased this truck in 2015 in Barcelona. It wasexactly what I was looking for - LHD from a dry climate, footwells and doorbottoms are in great shape with no rust.

Jaguar appoints Joe Eberhardt as North American President

Thu, 19 Dec 2013 18:02:00 EST

Jaguar Land Rover North America has appointed a new president, Joachim Eberhardt. The German exec, 50, had previously done stints at Chrysler Group, DaimlerChrysler UK, Mercedes-Benz USA and Daimler-Benz.
Eberhardt joins JLR NA in a good, but challenging time for the company. It's fresh off the launch of the Range Rover Sport and Jaguar F-Type, which have been subject to rave reviews, and its overall sales are up 21 percent over 2012. Still, as Automotive News points out, the two manufacturers face a fight to become the equal of A-list competitors like BMW and Mercedes in the eyes of consumers.
"Joe brings a proven industry track record and valuable global leadership experience in luxury sales, service and marketing. We look forward to Joe leading our North American team in working with our retail networks to further grow the business and better serve our customers," JLR's group sales operations director, Andy Goss, said.

Jaguar Land Rover in talks for Southern US factory

Mon, 20 Oct 2014 14:30:00 EST

Jaguar Land Rover is getting serious about global expansion, and that means it can't only build its vehicles in the UK anymore. The British automaker is cutting the ribbon at its new plant in China tomorrow, marking the opening of its first factory outside the UK. In 2016, it will open another factory in Brazil. But the latest intel has it that JLR is looking into a US factory, as well.
The report, which comes to us from the Sunday Times by way of Automotive News Europe, indicates that the company is evaluating locations for a North American factory, with options centering around Southern right-to-work states like South Carolina, where BMW operates its plant in Spartanburg and a wide array of other automotive operations are based as well. The JLR plant would reportedly ramp up to a capacity of 200,000 units per year.
In related news, while that new plant JLR is inaugurating in Changshu, China, is initially slated to produce the Range Rover Evoque, it is also expected to start building the new Discovery Sport as well - just like the Halewood plant in the UK that has handled Evoque assembly from the start and which just built its first Discovery Sport, as well.

Jaguar Land Rover calls in handful of vehicles over suspension bolts

Thu, 24 Apr 2014 08:44:00 EST

With most recalls seemingly affecting mass-market vehicles, it'd be all too easy to assume, consciously or otherwise, that higher-end automobiles never face such issues. But the main reason we don't see the NHTSA recalling more luxury automobiles isn't because of their quality, we'd postulate: it's because of their relative scarcity.
Take Jaguar Land Rover, recalls of whose vehicles we only seem to have cause to report about once a year. So if you're figuring they're about due, here you go. The Indian-owned British auto group has just announced two recalls, both regarding suspension components: one affecting Jaguars and another concerning - you guessed it - Land Rovers.
First up we have a recall for 2013 to 2014 model year Jaguar XJ, XF and XK models - a whopping 297 of them - which have been found to have problematic toe links. Separation of the toe link from the rear sub-frame could result in impaired stability and control over the vehicle's direction, so JLR is calling them in to replace the nuts and washers on the rear toe links.
