The debut of Land Rover's replacement for the aging Freelander to be dubbed the LR2 appeared in Detroit. We figured it would pop up eventually at the British Motor Show in July, Paris Motor Show at the end of September or the newly rescheduled L.A. even later. But it seems the upscale mini-ute is ready for its close up as these leaked brochure pages suggest. We can't glean any details from the images as the resolution is a bit too low for the text to be read.

I've made a major update to the photo gallery for more functionality. In the short term, the gallery doesn't look anything like the current site. I'll be working on that. It will make it easier for me to do other things on the site that use pieces of the photo gallery. Don't be surprised if things look odd once in a while as I re-tweak it to fit the look and feel of the rest of the site.

Land Rover's e-Terrain vehicle isn't meant to be taken literally. It's a showcase for the company's upcoming technology, particularly fuel efficiency a welcome sign, considering a supercharged Range Rover gets 13 mpg in city driving.
