I am surprised there has not been more comment knowing we have some long term Defender lovers on the board.

(I'll just leave this here and hide.)


Just time to burn a little more petrol before dinner.

A sad but logical day. It is easy to sack UK folk & producing abroad is cheaper.

I just don't get the range overlap, even more when the Jaguar'd versions are included.

I agree. The JLR product line is a bit of a mess.

I’ll buy one of those when my VW blows up, but I don’t want any luxury stuff, just towing capacity like the old one and hopefully a lot more room for the driver and a decent turning circle. I’d prefer rubber flooring, tough cloth seats, in marketeering world, this will probably be an extra cost downgrade. laugh2

To be honest, this car looks like there was very little effort to emotionally connect to Defender. But let's see what it looks like without camouflage and if it can set a "functional" accent...just like the Defender over all the decades. The emotional secret of the Defender was its roughness and its long history.
