Yes the D90 is coming at the end of this year, if you searched that's what you would find.

Hey Jacques, with a name like ALPHAMALE, living in Ely, would it be a good guess that you're a musher?

I suck at the internet too!

Is there any current information on this topic? Those postings are from 04. I have not read anything from edmunds, motor trend, LR Headquaters, other publications, etc.

Sounds like we still have a few years till they come here, like 2007 or 2008 at the earliest.

It'll never happen.

Never.

Think about it. If it was an '07, you would see concept cars and masked models being tested (like the new and improved freelander). Or the new and improved land cruiser.

Nothing has been built. The only way I could see it "maybe" happening, is if Ford reintroduces the Bronco. Then they would just rebadge it, upscale it in the market and another basterdized rover would be born.

Not happening.


Ever.

And i'm an optimist.

Again, fresh from LRNA, there are NO plans to bring it here before the end of the decade. They'll be at cpapcity filling non-US orders for years, and it's not worth the effort getting it sanitized for the US.

It's sarcasm. Yousef tends to use it...

I really think we need to have a 'page' dedicated to this topic right BEFORE they (they meaning 'newbies' who see a D90 on the highway, hear some garbled bullshit from their friends and think that 'they' will be more successful in importing one and come here for someone to TYPE OUT everything for them) create a username on the D90 Source, or at the very least a 'sticky'.

Just my opinion.

Aaaaaaaaaahhhhh. Seeing this again reminds me of Bill Murray waking up everyday to Cher and Bono.

The dear Defender, as we know and love, is gone.

Just like that girl you should have called back in your last year of college but instead you drank too much, lost her number, and went to see some crappy band with the guys. The chance has past.

I'm sorry if you were only 15 back in '95, and one sat for six months at the local Land Rover dealer and dad said wait until next year.

Likewise, I'm sorry if you old enough to have off sent $10 to get a brochure explaining how it was possible to find a $44 jeep in a crate.

Motor Trend runs rumors like a grocery store tabloid. But no matter how much you hope, it is just as likely that Bat Boy, the Yetti, and an alien will suddenly appear at the Land Rover dealer three years from now. And they, too, will be waiting for the new Defender.

I used to love Bat Boy. I followed his story every week.

Whoever was writing that was having a good time...and was a genius.

F'ing bat boy, for chrissakes.

I spoke too soon. It appears Bat Boy has already learned the Defender won't be coming back.

Guys
Forget it, the new "premium" strategy means that if it can't carry a $50K and above price tag LR wont sell it. Here in the UAE I had some of the guys tell me that us using 110's didn't "fit the corproate image we are trying to build"!! YA, serious LR3's and the new Supercharged RR is what it's all about, not lest we forget the Freelander but Defender NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO not premium enough. That's when you know the average guy around here who has a RR probably has one or more D-90 for fun in the desert (ya he might have cash but doesn't feel like getting his face chewed off by the dealer each time he goes out to the desert "will that be a new bumper or just the skirt?"). Remember this is the premium Motor group now, we don't make LR's anymore this is a fashion statement. Gosh even around here where you might think they would make an effort their figures show the sales are flat: no wonder they only import the TD5 once a year - stocks run dry after 2 weeks actually most of the units are pre-sold for @$35K before they hit the shore.
Good luck getting anything guys.
