This vehicle is important. First, is an icon. Is that kind of vehicle that everybody love, that a completly new version will be under everyone's scrutiny. Think of a new Mustang and have an idea of ​​what we are talking about. The other reason why it is important is because, in a way, this vehicle with history will be in a very particular niche market: that of all-terrain SUVs capable of going anywhere. There are the Defender, the Mercedes-Benz G Class, the Jeep Wrangler and, soon (soon?), The Ford Bronco. Of course, each of these vehicles in its price range, but all in the market niche of rugged iconic SUVs.

Looks amazing. I think the Bronco should also impress. Finally, two proper new 4WDs. Anti-Velars.

I'm curious to see how the 2021 Bronco with an IFS and a solid rear axle will compare to the 2020 Defender with 4-wheel independent suspension when driven off-road.


The new Defender's rear multi-link style suspension with short arms isn't exactly known for long wheel travel.

2020 Defender images leaked before official debut.





What about the off-road specs? The story lists the following.

Ground clearance: 291 mm or 11.45 inches
Water fording depth: 900 mm or 35.4 inches (nearly 3 feet)
Approach, departure, and breaker angles are very respectable.

Approach angle: 38 deg
Departure angle: 40 deg
Breakover angle: 28 deg
The South African version will have at two engine options. They are a 3.0-liter straight six gasoline engine or a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder turbo-diesel.

3.0-liter gas I6: 394 hp and 405 lb-ft of torque

2.0-liter diesel I4: 237 hp and 317 lb-ft of torque

Land Rover maintained the basic essence of the Defender in a very modern, futuristic way. I love the details of the C-pillar ... it looks like a floating piece. Very interesting.

Gotta love it...but I think a version with removable doors/roof would be even better. The price is not bad!
