Fun Facts about Land Rover

Did You Know?

Land Rover has a unique, interesting history that dates back to 1948, when brothers Maurice and Spencer Wilks built the first Rover, after Jeep’s 4×4. The Rover has made history many times due to its ability to traverse and navigate all types of terrain. It was the first vehicle to successfully travel from England to Singapore, and from Alaska to Argentina (traversing the continental divide). No matter what type of conditions your Land Rover vehicle has driven in the expert technicians at European Autotech, in San Ramon, California, can provide exceptional service to keep your vehicle in excellent condition.

Land Rover Craftsmanship: Extraordinary Off-Road Performance and Ultimate Luxury

Land Rover vehicles have a phenomenal reputation and are differentiated from other vehicles for many reasons, especially because they are able to traverse all types of conditions (from sand to muddy, water-logged, rutted ground, to icy and snowy conditions) and also offer a stellar level of luxury. The first Rover was a utilitarian vehicle but it has evolved into many Range Rover models, all featuring innovative technology, optimal safety settings, and incredible comfort.
