In 1947 brothers Spencer and Maurice Wilks designed the very first Land Rover for the British carmaker, Rover. The vehicle was designed to cover land of which no other military vehicle was capable. The original Rover sported a short wheelbase, tight front and rear overhangs, and a four-wheel drive system to handle rugged terrain. She was an instant success, and would set a high standard for the future of the brand.

Land Rover, like many luxury marques, has changed hands several times, most recently purchased from BMW by Ford, and then sold by Ford along with Jaguar to Tata Motors. Land Rover has struggled recently with quality, and has been ranked lowest in several initial quality surveys.
