New "Defender"?.....New Name?

New "Defender"?...New Name?.....Well yes. From the little bit of stuff that JLR & Co have let out, it appears that the "New Defender" will be very much different to what we all know as a Defender, so, if it's going to be that much different, then maybe it should not be called a Defender,....maybe the "New" vehicle, if it is really new, and really different, should have a "New" Name?
So, what do you think?
Commander.
Defender Mk 11.
Just a couple from me, any suggestions from you guys, or are you happy to leave it the way it is?

As they seem to totally disregard the Defender's heritage, they shouldn't even bother keeping the name. . _____

I hope they do drop it because finding stuff for our defenders is going to become a nightmare if you have to keep putting in pre2016 defender Rolling Eyes Running Restoration Thread http://www.defender2.net/forum/post323197.html#323197

But Shaggy, we've already got that problem! Everyone advertises as Defender irrespective of whether it is a Tdci, Td5, 300Tdi or 200Tdi, or for that matter a Turbo Diesel or NAS! And that is especially the case on here.......

The longer the pause is, the more I tend towards favouring a new name.

If JLR do go the route of re-establishing the vehicle as "the best 4x4xfar", and they will have to achieve that with lots and lots of technology, they had better leave the rugged military sounding Defender name be.

However, lets take a shot at starting where it left off....

"Defender NT" (new technology)...

...Depender, Descender, Ascender, Series One, Series Five, Eventer (I know, I know...), Reviver ( Laughing ), Deterra, Ascerra, Monterra, Montender, Survivor, Surviver, Sirvender, Landerra, Intender, Carreterra....

There are agencies that get millions for thinking up a name that
1. hasn´t been copywrited by some clever chap somewhere,
2. doesn´t translate into something unfortunate in a foreign country

Talking to salesmen today at local LR dealer and he told me he has seen the replacement defender in the flesh but they still haven't decided if it will be built - if it does it's going to look very much like this he said

He also said you die hard owners have got them nervous and good chance they will retire the defender name to be preserved for heritage vehicles only and start a new name

Actually I quite like that, you can see the style ques and also see how it blends into the new brand.

I like, now will it be similar to what we ultimately get i wonder?

Cheers

What about Midfielder? Whistle Whistle
Seeing as they are probably canvassing the WAGS of Cheshire for what they want in the new vehicle instead of the likes of us that use them as Utility vehicles!

I can come with several good names from the past of the Royal Navy.

Warspite
Thunderer
Conqueror
Iron Duke
Terror

etc.

But assuming what kind of veichle the "replacement" will be it is more likely to be named....
