Next Land Rover Defender to be a high-tech off-roader

Next Land Rover Defender to be a high-tech off-roader

Reports suggest that the next-gen Land Rover Defender will come with some of the brand’s most advanced off-road technologies.

Final testing for the upcoming Defender is currently under away and while it is anticipated to share some features with the Discovery and Range Rover, the new car is expected in 2018. Power for the new Defender could come from Ingenium diesel engines like the 2.0-litre 177bhp motor, and the same capacity twin turbo 237bhp unit. Petrol Ingenium engines may also find it to the stable thanks to the requirement from some markets worldwide. 

To make off-roading easier, one can expect the new car to get Terrain Response 2, off-road cruise control, and partial off-road autonomy (currently being tested). With shorter overhangs and higher ground clearance, the new Defender will be able to handle harsh terrain that would require such aggressive approach and departure angles.

Though it is anticipated that the Defender will be more expensive to build than the earlier iteration, sources reveal that the greater scale and modern building methods is expected to bring production costs down.
