Land Rover may have been founded in 1948, but the British automaker didn't start selling vehicles in the United States until 1987. Since then, Americans have bought more than 575,000 new Land Rover models. And while that might seem like a big achievement, it's actually managed to overshadow another that's been creeping up for some time now...
Specifically, Land Rover will be celebrating a solid 25 years of sales in the United States in 2012. And trust us when we say that they're not ready to let this milestone go unnoticed. Land Rover is actually planning a large celebration at the 2012 New York Auto Show.
Large how, exactly? While the company plans to show off a wide range of new models at the show, they also plan to show off some classic ones as well. These include the a 1987 Range Rover, which is the first vehicle Land Rover sold in the U.S.; a 1997 Defender soft top, which is still a highly sought-after used model today; and even a 1995 Camel Trophy Discovery.
Of course, Land Rover knows that its legacy wasn't forged by simply displaying its offerings at expo floors. It was built on the performance that its vehicles boasted both on and off the well-paved road. And that's why the company is setting up an off-road course on site to show off each vehicle's potential.
