The Return of the Land Rover Defender Confirmed!

What’s most obvious about this new camo’d Defender is that its shape heavily resembles the previous generation Defender, or what we knew as the LR4 and LR3 in North America. On that very topic, we hope that JLR sees fit to allow Canada and the US to keep the Defender name here.

The “#best4x4xfar” sticker on the doors might seem a little cocky but if you know anything about the Defender name and related pedigree, you’ll agree that this new SUV will probably live up to the sticker, and related hype.

Details are all but non-existent about powertrain. The only hint lies in the fact that JLR has said that every new car it launches from 2020 will be electrified. The next Defender is slated for 2020. A mild hybrid perhaps?

While the shell will be boxy and utilitarian, we expect that the cabin will be a luxurious affair in the brad’s image.
