United Kingdom 1991 Defender 110 200 Tdi USW Arles Blue

"I gazed into the entrails of a newt and it showed a heavy presence of the planet Jupiter. This combined with the frost on a rusty nail in a shed in Spain and the setting of the sun at night-time leads me to believe that the next defender will be available to buy and ready for production next week" Autocar Running Restoration Thread http://www.defender2.net/forum/post323197.html#323197

^^ About 25 years of difference between the time of the picture of the person in that truck and of the truck itself. Laughing You never actually own a Defender. You merely look after it for the next generation.

Well this does sound exciting! They have announced major models at Geneva in the past. So it does make sense. The press days at Geneva are just three weeks away,


Not holding my breath. I'm afraid that the Geneva car show JLR centerpiece will be the D5 Eurobox....
But, as they say, hope springs eternal. Whistle

From next week it will only be 2 years and 3 months until production starts of the 2020 MY Defender.

Chatting to a mate who works at JLR
He never says much but pretty much said it will use the D3/D4 chassis/running gear wouldn't talk about engine"

The D3/4 platform is now obsolete, they don't make it any more. However there is the brand new Discovery D5 platform that they could use?
The starting price of that is around 48k now, so the Defender would be about the same.

The 4x4 SUV market is going to be interesting in 2020. New Jeep Wrangler, New Ford Bronco, New Defender.

Not too much to ask? Whistle



So this is next week now. Where's my bloody Defender announcement? Sad

Maybe the dealer mentioned in the OP's original post meant 'Discovery' not Defender.
They are doing the press launch drives in Utah now with first reviews due out any day now. My Defender: http://www.defender2.net/forum/topic39625.html

Dunno, but the local stealers got a 2017 disco in, so going to have a shufty tomorrow and see what it looks like in the flesh,
Looked like 57K on the configurator. Bonnet looks really long compared to the Evoque so no holding my breath for the
first impression. 3 Landrovers
