Defender is a brand with a long tradition. Its initial release took place in 1948, and it has been in production for over 60 years. The production stopped in December 2015. Land Rover recently announced that this historic SUV will once again be in production. 2018 Land Rover Defender will go through significant changes, while it will strive to keep the iconic look which made the Defender so well known.
Engine of new Defender
Throughout its history this has been a SUV which always had strong engines, which could deliver great performances under difficult conditions. It appears that the rebirth of British iconic SUV will be accompanied with an introduction of new gasoline and diesel motors, which will be more fuel efficient than the ones on the previous models. 2018 Land Rover Defender will offer at least three different trim levels, and the strongest one might be 5 liter supercharged V8. The two other frequently talked about are 3 liter V6 and 2.4 liter I-4 engines. It is still too early to claim with certainty which trim levels will actually be available, but it is beyond doubt that each of them will be capable to deliver the power which is often needed in off-road conditions.
Design: Exterior and Interior of 2018 Land Rover Defender
Car manufacturers have hinted that the forthcoming 2018 Defender will move away from its recognizable look. According to some of the sources this SUV will be available with five different body types, which brings a much needed refreshment to Defender brand, because it hasn’t been redesigned in a long time. In any case it will not cease to be a utilitarian vehicle, which is built for difficult conditions, and the exterior design will be in the service of SUV’s functionality. Terrain Response System will make the adjustment to different terrains almost effortless, and drivers will be able to choose from a number of presets which are designed to help them overcome any difficulties they can encounter while driving.
According to available information both two and four door body types will be obtainable. The car’s cabin is spacious with plenty of room for different types of cargo in the back. The leather seats are just a small part of a rather comfortable interior, which is also equipped with the cutting edge infotainment system and various other applications which ensure that the passengers driving experience is at its maximum.
Release Date and Price
It is perhaps too early to talk about the exact release date. Information regarding this wildly differ. There are some who think that we can expect 2018 Land Rover Defender as early as May 2017. Others are convinced that it is most likely that the SUV will be released in early 2018. As the time passes, more information will become available.
Price is also a subject to very different opinions. However most sources project its starting price to be 55.000$. Whether these projections are correct or not Defender is among the best off-road vehicles on the market, and it can be argued that no price is too high for a car as good as this. 2018 Land Rover Defender will be challenged by only a few SUV’s such as Jeep Wrangler or Mercedes-Benz G550.
