ppsssstttt.... Mike, you know you can edit your own posts instead of re-posting right? Also, if you do a search, this has been talked about many times before.....

Maybe the moderators will merge this topic to the "other ones" out there..... LOL

I'll believe it when I see it. There are so many clients relying on the maintenance of a standard chassis and parts. Even the MoD told Ford they will not accept a redesign of the Defender.
My sentiments exactly. If anything, it will be another grocery getter with the "Defender" name slapped on it. It will be a joke.

Glenn, LOL you know I won't do anything to your posts as long as you behave.

I hope they keep making the current Defender and just add theses H2 type wannabes to the Rover lineup to keep up production.

Oh man only you could bring up that ninja thing again. How could I forget! What fun that was. And your still off duty so your powers are limited.

Now as far as that new 90 goes, how many of us would buy one, and if you did would your treat it more like a Freelander or the current Defender?

And as for your question my answer is N/A. By then I should have a SW, 110, plus my ST and that should be enough D's for me.

I wouldn't buy one at all. Just doesn't look like anything I want to be seen in.

I try to ridicule it like it was a freelander....

Mike,

What the hell is that thing in your icon? I know it came from the "Pimp my Ride" site, but is that a big orange snow plow on your bumper? :D

One of the original plans for the redesign called for a "lifestyle" variant and a "commercial" (read real) version for the military and industry. The US was to get the lifestyle truck, replete with an independent suspension front and rear. Two things likely killed this, the English MoD, and Ford's dire financial predicament.

Fair enough, as LR has all but killed any direct relation to what made it great. The new vehicles now require major makeovers every five years because they've adopted trendy design. When the SUV party ends, LR will feel like the fool dancing with a sweaty ugly girl right as the bar bouncer hits the cleaning lights. The product line will become so corrupted, the cars will require photo montage for the African scenes used in ads.
