The New Land Rover Defender is truly capable of great things and built for the 21st century. A vehicle tested to the extreme; equipped for any terrain and challenge, it is respectful of its past but is not harnessed by it. This is a new Defender for a New Age.

Today we finally get to officially introduce our next biggest adventure - the New Land Rover Defender. A truly unstoppable car, capable of great things. The New Defender gives us licence to do things differently, to push the boundaries and do the unthinkable.
