    Basically Freelanders got a bad reputation for mechanical failures.  And the Discovery line was considered kind of stale, so they "rename" both of the new interations of the Discovery and Freelander for the US market when they were introduced.  Instead of the Discovery 3 it became the LR3 in North America, and the Freelander 2 was introduced to the United States as the LR2 instead.
