Land Rover Next Generation Defender Even More Rugged
Land Rover’s design director, Gerry McGovern, has recently talked about the future Defender, explaining it won’t be close to what the DC 100 concepts have shown us in the last few years.
Gerry McGovern instead says that the plush-tough aroma of the DC 100 concepts is a thing that won’t make it into production. Instead, Land Rover wants to focus on values such as ruggedness and dependability when it comes to the next generation Defender. Land Rover’s future line-up will include three sub-models – the Range Rover family, the recently-announced Discovery family and the Defender, also with multiple flavors.
Apart from offering a durable Defender, Land Rover also wants to make the vehicle an affordable proposition. Thus, the entry-level models will come with a reasonable financial side, but you’ll still be able to take things higher with premium versions. Just as interesting was the Land Rover chief designer’s take on the new Discovery family, Land Rover has a plan that is yet to be full unveiled.
