Land Rover exec on the next Defender

Just out yesterday, not sure if anyone has had the chance to read this nor if this is new news to anyone.

Please dear lord, send us a 4 door soft top with solid axles and a diesel. And a wading sensor. I just cant live without knowing how deep the mall parking lot puddle is from inside the cab.

Precisely my thoughts...when I go to Nordstroms Outlet I'm always worried about my delicates getting soiled stepping out of my truck into a puddle when it rains!

Guess we are the new market demographic then. Nothing says bling like wade sensors!

On a related note, we do cross some fast, deep rivers/creeks out west. More of an issue than depth is the current flow; Ive floated trucks and wheelers down creeks before that had less than 15" of water. So, perhaps a current speed sensor would be another great electronic doo dad on the new LRs!

Yeah...but that's the premium wash!...funny thing about that crossing...it was supposed to be a big deal because there is a two foot deep hole just to the left of the drivers side. one slip and you're sideways winching out. It was pretty cool. hopefully you and the fam will make the next Co. rally, I believe next year its in Moab.

Hmmm:
Thread 1: I can't get by iPhone 7 to sync using BT
Thread 2: it's really bouncy off road. What's wrong?
Thread 3: I had to add a quart of oil after 5000 miles. Never had to do that before. What's wrong.
Oh the periks of a modern Land Rover

Len JK's look better everyday. No chance in hell Land Rover will build a "truck". Im happy the defender will have been built for 32 years

Its going to be LR's FJ Cruiser. A rubber lined impractical styling exercise designed for curb appeal, not work. Get ready to hate.

You know what. I didn't mind the DC100 except for the freaking retarded rims. If it had a 16" or even a 17" rim I would have said, "It's no Defender but finally a modern wannabe from LR that isn't a $50k boxier Range Rover wannabe." I liked the fact that it was essentially a Skoda Yeti. Skodas are the bees knees.

Probably going to be complicated, no solid axles, gas only, and automatic only. I just hope they let it die dignified.

Circular reporting, but adds a bit of history. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/luxury/mo...-a-legend.html
