With Land Rover ending production of the classic SUV in 2015 after almost 70 years on the market, the next-generation Defender is waiting for global introduction.Land Rover has finally confirmed the styling for the all-new Defender. This new SUV will feature a “bolder, more sophisticated look,” which means we could be looking at a design language shared with the more recent Land Rover intros like the complete Range Rover lineup and the 2015 Discovery and not the prototype designs that we saw a few years ago.

The chassis will probably be a body-on-frame design like the current model or might be the rugged, aluminum D7 platform underpinning the all new current Range Rover and Range Rover Sport. Platform sharing would play a significant role in keeping the costs down.

Land Rover could be looking to sell around 50,000 of the next-generation Defender SUVs each year, which would not only be a good argument for a cost-saving shared platform but also expanded sales back into the military and farming segments which has in recent years seen more Japanese and Korean SUVs taking in more demand.
