New Land Rover Defender takes inspiration from Mercedes G-Wagen

New Land Rover Defender takes inspiration from Mercedes G-Wagen

The appearance of the next Land Rover Defender has been a cause for speculation for several years now since the previous concept was unveiled seven years ago back in 2011.

Up until the last couple of weeks, the only Defenders that have been on public display have been the prototype mules with bodies like scrunched-up Range Rovers – but that has now finally changed.

On 18 December, a low resolution photo was posted on the Land Rover Facebook page with a coy message – “Do not unwrap until 2019” – and a tease that more information would be provided before the end of this year. Beyond that, there were no details or even hints as to what the news is going to be, although the shape in the photo is so boxy that it only makes sense that it is the new Defender.

In a press release earlier this month that purported to outline the company’s plans for next year, there was no indication that a new Defender model was set to be introduced. However, the brand name was mentioned as one of the firm’s primary three product “families” – along with Discovery and Range Rover – which certainly suggested that the model would eventually be brought back.

There has been a great deal of anticipation surrounding the design possibilities of any new Land Rover Defender, but since the critical panning of the DC100 concept, those possibilities have been kept very much a secret. The new Defender will almost certainly be a four-door, and something aesthetically similar to the Mercedes G-Class in the US market is also likely, with a very nice interior and decorative LEDs on the front of the vehicle. But will the new Defender be a real “homage” to the world of adventure or will it still be able to hang out with its predecessors? Time will tell.
