Or you could just buy a perentie variant.

The idea was to use 110 components to reduce the need for extra spares in the field where 90/110/defenders were in use; i.e. Brit army. Incredible maneuverability and would beat any thing on the Bovington tank test ground. On the road, even London Taxis would give way to it.

Current Defender to live on to 2017

Postby diamondcutter13 » Thu Oct 20, 2011 8:40 pm

thank Jeebus, Land Rover has got a reprieve until 2017. Pedestrian safety laws? Really? If you're getting hit by a truck you're pretty much fucked.

Current Defender to live on to 2017

20 October 2011


The bulk of the current Land Rover Defender range is likely to continue in production until 2017 or later — and that will be at least two years after the launch of the all-new Defender replacement in 2015.

The long-wheelbase 110 and commercial 130 versions of the Land Rover Defender are likely to be beneficiaries, staying in production well after the arrival of the new short-wheelbase Defender, previewed at the Frankfurt show as the DC100 concept.

“There are a number of changes to the legislation that mean we can keep the current Defender in production longer than we thought,” said a Land Rover source.

The first is the ability of the new 2.2-litre diesel engine to meet EU6 standards — the tough next step in emissions regulations that will align diesel engine pollutants with those of petrols in 2015/16.

There is also a suggestion that the Defender might not have to comply with EU6 until a later date. A few years ago the Defender was reclassified as a commercial vehicle, which might help.

Pedestrian impact laws were due to pull down the shutters on the Defender in 2015, but Land Rover now understands that a ‘derogation’ — exemption from the law — might apply until 2020.

The Range Rover Evoque also looks like it sucks yuppie donkey balls but I'd love to take the Dakar version for a rip. I'd like this in an uparmoured version.

never could understand the reason for raising the shit out of the center of gravity on a 4x4 when your ground clearance is still the same.

will stick to my new soccer dad ford expedition. at the first sign of a raging drizzle i'm fully prepared to get the kids from school safely. bring on the snow flakes.

As long as they have the good sense to keep making the original Defender into eternity.

the short wheel base is done as the story says, the long wheel base only gets a reprieve.

Plastic Roofracks! Low-Pro street tires! Surfboards!!? WTF? Landrover must now go to the box and feel the shame. Dirty Tata pigdogs.

I hope their oversize starbucks holders catastrophically fail leaving the designers with genital scarring.

Looks like a new school mini with a big bonnet and big wheels. I cant wait to ' accidentally ' scratch one while cruising down Regent St. and I hope the poncy little hipsters that would drive such a retarded thing give chase.

You know...I saw it live. It doesn't look too bad. That baby blue was giving it a bit of a faggity look. That convertible is another story...

Further, the Evoque was very deceiving. Even though it's small, a 6' 4" man could fit in the back, not necessarily comfortable, but someone at 5' 10" would fit like a glove. 240hp to 3600+lbs.
