    but bbut? What if you gonna crash it? I mean, wasn’t it made by LEGO?

      Land Rovers break down so much, they made it out of LEGO so owners could fix it themselves!

    I thought the Defender 130’s are pickup versions. Now, it will be another stretched SUV.

  • SteersUright

    Already a loser, from soft, feminine design to uninteresting engines, to weak interior, this may just be the nail in JLR’s coffin as they can’t seem to produce world-class automobiles no matter what.

    • it’s not supposed to be a high end luxury car…

      • SteersUright

        Its not supposed to be a Jimny either. And if we’re honest, JLR is a luxury brand, not one that competes with Chevy nor Hyudai but, with BMW, Audi, etc. Their engineering and quality as of late leaves much to be desired. The stats for this upcoming Defender do not demonstrate anything groundbreaking that might move the needle for them, unfortunately.

        • 😁 there’s a just middle. JLR is supposed to compete with German Luxury brands sure. For Jag and the Range Rover lineup. For Land Rover it got more posh and luxurious thru the decades but it was born like the original Jeep as work horse. But maybe the new Defender should be a big Jimny mixed with a Wrangler.

  • So I bet now that the 90 will sell well at first, then most people will buy the 110, and later JLR will at least think of stopping the 90.

  • why?

    • Ken Lyns

      Shorter wheelbase makes the SUV easier to spin out, or roll over off-road.

  • George Dao

    So no plans for a pick up?

    • LOL you dream… I don’t see Americans leave the big 3 or Toyota for a Land Rover pick-up soon. After the initial launch it wouldn’t sell. Plus when a pickup isn’t reliable it becomes a bad joke. Sure a lot of people buy them because they just like it, but at their core they have to be work horses (like the original Land Cruiser you’ll tell me). Maybe they should do one… Would be the size of Gladiator, Colorado .Ranger… But more expensive and luxurious !?!?

  • Yeah but to drive to the beach while looking “cool” or park in cities it’s great … And let’s face it I don’t go off road, but I see a lot of 2 doors Gclass, Defenders, Wranglers, Land Cruisers… Who never saw dirt with their current owners at least. And if too short for real off roaders… They won’t buy it. And if it doesn’t sell… They’ll pull it out.
