Holding-out for the new 110?

I currently use an old Nissan Pathfinder for family trips and for going places with our Golden Retrievers. It is starting to cost too much to maintain and it needs to be replaced. Soon. As you can imagine the D90 just can't hold 3 people, 2 big dogs, and a pile of camping gear without the person in the back getting crowded.

I've been avoiding buying a replacement in the hopes LR releases a 4-door replacement for the Defender. I was hoping for some sense of WHAT and WHEN by now but am starting to think I need to move on.

Anyone else been holding out? What's your line in the sand?

ugghhh, sell your shiite and get something else. When LR gets around to making an announcement and a firm NA arrival, you can decide based on whatever color of unicorn they decide to come out with if it's worth having then. If it's checks the block, sell your new shiite.

Seriously, my hope for a purpose built new defender went away with the new discovery (old explorer?) announcement

That's my line in the sand too. Although I would quite like an LR4 or L322 Range Rover, they don't have the same aura as the 5x6.5 trucks.

I had a 2003 Range Rover that I loved - when it wasn't in the shop for some faulty bell or whistle. I was quite impressive off-road. You should have seen the looks I got on some of the trails in and around Tin Cup. The only downside was rock scrapes on the wheels.

Might happen. Might not. Considering they'll continue the current 110 until 2017. And chances are they won't import cause it would cut into the RR/LR market. Sounds like you're an ideal candidate for a late model LR3 or LR4. If you hate fixing a pathfinder...might want to also consider a Land Cruiser.

About 13 years ago my wife met Jacques Nasser and was told 2005 for the new Defender.
I fear they just can't make a business case for it when stacked up against Evoque type products.
