2020 Land Rover Defender – what we know so far
The Defender is an icon among SUVs, and there’s an all-new model on the horizon. And this time, it’s not just for off-roading...
In January 2016, the last Defender rolled off Jaguar Land Rover's production line at Solihull, bringing an end to the iconic off-roader almost 67 years after the Series I Land Rover on which it was based went on sale.
Even now, the Defender remains the go-to off-road SUV for many, with the car having earned a worldwide reputation for tackling tough terrain. Owners have ranged from members of the royal family – the Queen has been pictured at the wheel of several Defenders – to the military and celebrities.
So when Land Rover announced it would be axing the Defender in 2015, there was considerable uproar for a new one to replace it. And Land Rover has responded, readying a new Defender to launch in 2020. So what can you expect from it?
