The new Defender is being featured in more and more teasers by Land Rover to generate more buzz. It’s not your typical shadowy teaser image as the adjacent photo gallery was shot in Africa where a near-production prototype had to go through some serious hurdles in Kenya. Together with British non-profit organization Tusk Trust, the resurrected off-road SUV was used across the 14,000-hectare Borana Conservancy by wildlife managers to support conservation operations.

Approximately two and a half years have passed since the last old-school Defender was built at the factory in Solihull, and we’re now just a few months away from its completely new successor. Land Rover will allegedly unveil the next-gen model in September and will have the iconic off-roader on sale soon.
 
Like its predecessor, the revamped Defender will spawn a great variety of derivatives, from barebones off-roaders to luxurious and powerful versions in a bid to lure in a wider clientele. We’ve spotted it multiple times in short- and long-wheelbase configurations, but we’ve also been hearing rumors of a pickup truck with a single cab setup among other versions.

Actually what I hope to see is a more rugged interior quality and more interior space especially for the driver. Better heat insulation or firewall between the engine bay and driver. And a better manual transmission.

Unlike G-wagen, this will fail big time.

Going to look like just another LR SUV.

Even Suzuki was able to get things right with the design of their Jimny. This is a massive fail on LR's part and looks like a design dictated by the marketing team.

From the looks of it they are not sticking to the old formula. It has became another SUV from their suv lineups.How to seriously bring it offroad? Looks like a heavyweight. Confirm will tio stuck offroad and ppl will laugh.

If I'm not wrong the price will be ridiculously expensive as well.

Jeep done it right with its wrangler. 

 

People who buys such vehicles wants the rugged looks.

 

If it looks like a typical SUV from the big brands, it will put people off
