The "spread bore" petrol engine was introduced, followed shortly by a brand new 2.0-litre Diesel engine that, despite the similar capacity, is not related to the petrol engines used. The petrol engines use the inlet-over-exhaust valve arrangement; the diesel use the overhead layout. This diesel engine produce 52 hp (39 kW) at 4,000 rpm. This engine is slightly longer than the original chassis allowed, so the wheelbase was increased from 86 to 88 in (2,200 mm) for the short-wheelbase models, and from 107 to 109 in (2,769 mm) on the long-wheelbases. The extra two inches are added in front of the bulkhead.

1554 Land Rover Mk 5 (88" with 1997 cc engine) were delivered to the during 1956 and 1957.
