Default New Land Rover Defender

Looks like it might provide some competition for the H3. This link has a detailed article and pics.

I have been wanting one of these for years. Sorry to disappoint you but Rover IS NOT going to export these to the US. A redisign is slated for 2010, at which time they will consider exporting them. Until then if you want one you will have to pay +50K for a 1993 if you can find one. Jim Newman of The Rover Group, SD Ca can help.

Looks like the the old one just witha face lift. And with onl 120 HP it seems extremly lacking in power with people complaining about the H3's 242 i wonder how people would respond to that.

Here's a Motor Trend article that says it is coming to the U.S.
http://www.motortrend.com/future/spi...over_defender/

Quote:
The Defender, absent from this market since after the 1997 model year, returns to the United States in 2007 as a 2008 model. It retains its image as the purest, most committed sport/utility in Land Rover's lineup, although a smaller, more basic model reportedly is in the works for introduction a year later.

I'd even hesitate to say it's competition for the H2.

I like the lines alot! It looks good! I had read in one of the car magz I get (AutoTrend maybe?) that the Defender was going to be ceased. I'm glad its coming back though, it looks good!

They are real classic designs. They are all live axles on coil springs. Some have the V8.

Rovers reliability record is a liability. And they are expensive to repair

Ive had good luck with Jeeps, Toyotas and now with an H3 so I down I would go for the Rover unless I lived in Africa but even there I'd probably want a Land Crusier

Thanks for the article, I hope they bring it to the states!! I have always drooled over the older ones I have seen and the new one looks great! I like the looks of the two door version over the four door.

The D90 "design" is merely engineering for function, not form or style. Kind of like the original Jeep or the military "h1".

To me, those are always the coolest looking.

The difference w/ H2 and H3 is with both there is much emphasis on "style and form" not only function

Cool rig, but I'm not going to drive that thing as a daily driver like I do the H3.

They feel like you are driving a moving van. I still want one though.

I thought the new freelander is next before anything else in the LR line?
nothing says FU then a Rover, worse then Hummer, lot of leaf lovers seem to give them a pass over us?

I really like how the rear seats fold sideways.
