100 Photos Of The New Land Rover Defender

After years of chat and teasing, this is the new Land Rover Defender. The icon reimagined for the 21st century, which Land Rover claims is in a category of its own. First up we have the Defender 110 with a short wheelbase 90 to follow in 2020.

Here’s what Gerry McGovern, Chief Design Officer at Land Rover has to say: “The new Defender is respectful of its past but is not harnessed by it. This is a new Defender for a New Age. Its unique personality is accentuated by its distinctive silhouette and optimum proportions, which make it both highly desirable and seriously capable – a visually compelling 4×4 that wears its design and engineering integrity with uncompromised commitment.”
