The Next Land Rover Defender Will Be Sold in the US


In the next couple of years, we will see new fully redesigned versions of two classic (and largely unchanged for decades) off-road vehicles - Mercedes G-Wagen and Land Rover Defender. Retaining the tradition, Mercedes will adhere to the bodywork on the frame, but Land Rover, apparently, uses a different approach. Automotive News reports that the Defender of the future generation will be based on the same platform Unibody, which supports Range Rover.

Automotive News states that Defender will most likely use the version of the current Range Rover aluminum platform to reduce costs and weight, as well as to better meet global safety standards. Defender will also be equipped with a new family of Jaguar Land Rover of the four-cylinder petrol and diesel engines Ingenium. This is likely to be sold in two traditional body styles: a two-door soft top and a four-door hardtop.

In another break with the past Automotive News also says that this Defender will be "sold in all world markets", which will include North America. Land Rover previously imported several defenders to the US market in the period from 1993 to 1997, but otherwise they were banned for American enthusiasts.

Automotive News reports that the next-generation Defender may be shown in conceptual form next year, before entering the market in 2019.
