United Kingdom 2016 Discovery 4 3.0 SDV6 Landmark LE Auto Waitomo GreyDiscovery 4
New Defender

Don't know whether it is old hat but was discussing with dealer D4 vs D5 and said I would watching to see if the new Defender top of the range model would satisfy those that prefer the D4 - ie big box shape, big access to rear and maybe even split tailgate. He said it would come in at least five varients including short, medium and long wheelbase.

That's the plan for me, hoping inside will be equivalent or better than my 08D3 Thumbs Up

If it starts at 30k then I may even be able to afford one Thumbs Up

Three version of short medium and long wheel base, ie basic, medium and top spec of each wheel base is the rumor.

is it going to be on a totally bespoke platform or the same one as the D5, RRS and FFRR?

Would be great if they really pulled off something special and different Thumbs Up

We all know a new Land Rover Defender is coming, but now it's really starting to set in. Dr. Ralf Speth, head honcho at Jaguar-Land Rover, confirmed today that the new Defender will launch in 2018, based off the new Land Rover Discovery.

Speth told Autocar the new Defender would used the aluminum architecture found in the new Land Rover Discovery, Range Rover, and Range Rover Sport.

Despite the cost-cutting chassis sharing, Speth confirmed to Autocar that the new Defender will be "fairly different" from every other model in the Land Rover range, range, with supreme off-road abilities as you'd expect from a Defender.

"There is no question of the new Defender just being an icon. We are working on an authentic successor to the old Defender," Speth said. "The architecture will contain a lot of elements that are different [from other aluminium cars]," he said.

Would be good if it could be a little narrower than D3/D4 to help get up lanes

As long as the new defender doesn't have a roof rack i will be happy.

I hate roof racks, they ruin the design.

Unless they bring out a D5 XL I think my next LR will be the new Defender. Hopefully it will have the space of the D4 with some decent (modern) power options. I'm on the fence about the D5 so may well go for the XC90 T8 and wait and see what Landrover do. Also getting a BMW I3 for SWMBO not necessarily for the Eco credentials they are just really fun to drive and modern which is hopefully where Landrover go with the Defender.

All my hopes of sticking with the brand now depend on the Defender. They really need to get this one right. Thumbs Up

As above, but like I said in another post somewhere, why not use the D4 and modify it and call it a defender, retooling the body to produce crew cab, or two seat pick up can't be that hard, and they will save a fortune as they have everything else to hand.
