Land Rover Plans Technologically Superior Defender Successor
Land Rover Plans Technologically Superior Defender Successor! The Land Rover Defender is one of the most well-known Land Rover models, although the model went out of production last year. According to a new report from Autocar reports that Land Rover is working on a new Defender model that will be the most technologically advanced vehicle to ever come from Land Rover. The model is expected to hit the market in early 2019 and is reported to be the world’s most capable off-road vehicle.
“It was one of the saddest moments of my career to end production of the old Defender,” Speth said. “So we are working very hard to give it an authentic successor.”
Currently, the prototype is being tested in secret locations around the world and the major engineering is complete. With the addition of the Land Rover Defender, Land Rover’s ‘three-pillar’ model will be complete with the Discovery and Range Rover. Although production levels have recently been below what JLR would’ve hoped, they believe adding more technology will help boost sales to the 50,000-plus mark. According to Speth’s discussion with Autocar, the new Defender will be based on the aluminium architecture of the Range Rover, Range Rover Sport and Discovery, meaning it can share the all-aluminium body shop and final assembly procedures of these models.
