I am wondering if the new defender will be more attractive to thieves than the old one. It may at least take the focus out of the current defender. Defender 110 SW MY2011 2.4tdci decat, no EGR
Jeep Wrangler YJ 1990 lots of offroad mods

Only if they use the same insecurity as all the Evoques and RRS that go missing via Keyless entry/Theft. 1999 Defender TD5 110

I think it's on the Alloy and Grit site but they looked closer at the images and showed that a lot of that camo is deliberate to make it look like a Disco and the bonnet, roof line and side panels will be more Defender-esque.

The new Defender will be whatever JLR need to put out to take on everything from an entry level L200 to a V6 X Class. It has to be. That Bollinger is a niche product and would be surprised if it ever gains any real traction in the market. The new Defender HAS to be more comfortable, economical, easier and cheaper to build.... They need to shift the units.
Let's face it, we love our Defenders DESPITE their shortcomings, not because of them - that's why you know you'll get a wave back because the driver of the other Defender is driving it because he loves it rather than because it was a sensible purchase.

I'll never sell mine but probably will buy a new one.


I’m not against evolution, better comfort etc. However, the reason the Defender was so iconic and respected was the honesty about it, and it’s capability. Considering how JLR is now facing problems with the premium market withering, one has to wonder if a basic, down to earth and affordable product might not have been exactly the thing to balance the basket.

Besides, the whole market is going electric. There are still lots of opportunities there. Could’ve been great to have seen JLR doing something unique there.

My mistake. I thought I'd read that in one of the more credible recent articles but I can't find it now amongst all of the chaff. What I have found though, is another piece that suggests it'll be on a budget version of D7, which is the current Range Rover platform. Regardless though, it won't have solid axles and will come from the existing parts bin, which was the point I was responding to.


I've read it will be on the new MLA platform ~ 1st of many models to migrate to this. Means the vehicle can be ICE, hybrid, plug in or full EV.

I'm afraid this needs some numbers to backup such a claim (car manufacturers are usually wary to publish their statistics about defects).

Yet, I reckon modern cars are a lot more reliable than the older ones, it's just that time tends to fade bad memories of unreliable cars from the past. Another point is that with time, people tend to learn about the common faults and either live with them or know how to diagnose and fix them easily. That doesn't mean older cars were more reliable.

Engineers to not put electronic in modern cars just for the sake of it, they could simply not produce a car that would meet the current emissions requirements without the precision of a computer driven injection system. They cannot do without an ECU.

Besides the software if the ECU can compensate for mechanical wear automatically and even allow for the engine to run even when some sensors are sending wrong data, by correlating data from other sensors. 2009 2.4 Puma Defender 90 SW

I tend to agree with Supacat about electronics being used just for the sake of it. Back in the early 1970's, working as a research and development engineer on car and motor cycle engines we had a small team of electronics engineers. There wasn't a month went by without them coming up with some idea as to how to apply their electronics to what were then virtually 100% mechanically controlled engines. Some of their ideas are now mainstream but many were so air brained that they have been lost in the annals of time. Santorini 90XS SW

I'd be willing to make a 'bet the company' type of bet that there is no going back on electric. The momentum is too great. The only interesting alternative is biodiesel.

I was at my dealers last week and they confirmed there will be a fully electric BEV version after launch. He know's I'm going BEV so it keen to keep me on marque as it where, lest I run off the Tesla X or Jaaaaag ipace.

As soon as the goverment announces the end of life for Diesel engines we can expect the @rse to drop out of the resale value of DERVs.

Remember the Model T Ford essentially killed the 'Horse' market in less than ten years.. after centuries of horse ownership. MY15.5 RRS HSE
