Next-gen Land Rover Freelander spied in advance of '06 debut

As Ford-owned Land Rover prepares to launch a new Freelander in 2006, spies caught this nearly undisguised prototype on a recent test. These photos show the 2007-model Freelander as exclusively a five-door; it is bigger, wider, longer and more upmarket than the first-generation Freelander.

The test car rides on a stretched version of the Volvo S40/V50, Mazda 3/Mazda 5 and Euro Ford Focus chassis, the same extended chassis that underpins the next Volvo S60/V70. With this new chassis, look for the Freelander to switch to transversely mounted inline six-cylinder engines supplied by Volvo.
