Cool 07 or 08 Defender in USA again?

Is the rumor of re-introducing the 07 or 08 Defender back to the USA true, still an unconfirmed rumor or completely false? I'm in the market for a new vehicle and will hold off a couple of more years if this is possibly true!

I think the Defender has been rumored to come back to the states every year since it left. I will believe it when I see it...........

Bummer

I saw an article in some recent auto magazine that prompted me to ask. It said that the 08 may be reintroduced. This is why I asked. NOT the Christmas message I was hoping for, but much appreciated nontheless!!

Merry Christmas everyone (but if Santa has a better answer, please post!).

Search the previous posts on the subject. Lots has been said about it. If they ever come back they will be psuedo Defenders.

The link below gives alot of information regarding the 2007 release of the Defender back in America. If you're after the offroad capabilities and unique look of the D90's already here then this ''new" Defender NAS model is not for you.

I think that article has been up there since the D90 was fazed out in America back in `97

That thing looks like a Jeep anyway. I wouldn't trade my 94 for a new one, I like it the way it is......a truck.
Merry Christmas

If it was coming back in 07 wouldn't it have been released about 3 months ago?

Is there some way to automatically delete topics that have "new defender" in the title?

It's probably just an '08 model.

The article said it's "planned" on being released in 2007 as a 2008 (which is a long way of saying it's an 08 model since most new vehicles are released in the months prior to the new year, correct?).

There is no way that the Defender is ever coming back in its existing form... Land Rover will finally get smart 10-12 years in the future, after another company buys them and wants to pump up their marketing and sales... The Defender will become the LR1 and it will be a cross between the Freelander and a Dodge Nitro. All Hype and No function.

Just give up. If you really want a NEW Defender, get your name in now, maybe you can save up enough by the time ECR gets around to you

I don't think that new style (from the Atlantic British site) would come about any time soon...the current model looks pretty much the same as the models in the US:

http://www.landrover.com/gb/en/Vehic...r_overview.htm

My guess is that Ford will probably bring back the bronco and put the same engine that is in the current 90 in the bronco. Depending on how sales of the Bronco do, I could see this as a test platform for bringing the 90 back to the US. However, this is all speculation I have formulated. I imagine that Land Rover has plenty of orders for the defender in the public and private sectors of countries where it meets the required standards and bringing it back to the US is not really a top priority. I, like the rest of you would be first in line if they came back but then again, it is just a car...it too will one day just be dust.

I'm impressed with that Bronco redesign but considering Ford's current financial state I don't see a big chance of it coming to market unless the FJ Cruiser and the H3 do really well. Still, Ford is missing a 'boutique' 4WD in their lineup.
