Land Rover and Volvo will reportedly co-develop sport/ute

Land Rover and Volvo will co-develop the replacement for the Freelander—and the Swede’s model could be built in Britain. Land Rover and Volvo sport/utes will spring from a shared platform under development by a joint team of Land Rover and Volvo designers and engineers based in England.

The Freelander version will be engineered with the bias toward off-road toughness, while Volvo’s, probably to be named XC50, will be sportier and more road-friendly. The engines are likely to be shared, but Volvo is likely to use its hallmark five-cylinder units.

The XC50 won’t be the first Volvo built in Britain. The P1800 coupe, driven by Roger Moore in The Saint TV series, was built by Brit-based Jensen between 1960 and 1963.

My first car was a 67 Mustang Coupe, 2nd one was a 67 Cougar XR-7, 3rd one was a 66 Mustang Coupe. Why did I get rid of these cars for ? I know why, because I'm stupid, stupid, stupid.

My next Ford.....
