TD5 – 1998 TO 2007
THE FIVE-CYLINDER Td5 was the last Land Rover-derived diesel engine and it has proved pretty bulletproof over the years, provided it has been properly serviced.

Rear crossmembers prone to rust, but easily replaced. BUYER’S TIP: Check service history. SPECIFICATIONS 2.5-litre five-cylinder turbo diesel, 122 bhp, 221 lb-ft torque. R380 five-speed transmission, permanent four-wheel drive.
