Land Rover’s design chief Gerry McGovern has confirmed that the next Land Rover Defender will look “nothing like” the Lego-looking concepts we’ve seen, but he has said he wants to sell more the next time around. Way more.
Like many gearhead fathers, I dread the coming day when the wall goes up. And it’s not just the teen years either - cars and coffee has a tough time competing with Minecraft. Happily there is a solution. A Defender, in fact.
Reggae legend Bob Marley's 1977 Series III Land Rover pickup was almost as cool as the man himself. Yet it spent some thirty years waiting in vain for somebody to stir it up and satisfy its soul. See what I did there? You should also see this beautiful restoration video and how happy the truck made Marley's kids.
As Land Rover slowly, expensively, and by some measure dramatically puts an end to its historic Defender model, bad guys around the World will have to look elsewhere for a decent, rugged, tough, go-anywhere, kill-anything, on-and-off-roader. They'll have to do so sooner than later, as photos of the latest shoot from…
Land Rover has been threatening to mess with the design of the timeless (archaic) Defender for years, and now rumor has it they've settled on a new look that we'll see in 2015. But apparently it won't look anything like the Power Wheels/FJ Cruiser lovechild "DC100" concept we saw in 2011.
The Land Rover Defender is beautiful in its own agricultural stock glory. I've been perilously close to buying some heavily rusted "restorable" examples myself. But taking a deep dive with Jon Ward of Icon 4x4 shows how much prettier the truck can be when someone really sweats the details.
I was about to write off this video from the Moose Off-Road Team as another overly dramatic dub-stepped fartfest but... wait... Is that a Series 1 Land Rover Discovery converted to a pickup?
Welcome to Little Car in the Big City, where I highlight fascinating cars I found walking around a town that is known for being bigger than everything else, but where every car is fighting to stand out: New York, New York.
Let me tell you about the first day of Gumball 3000 and what it was like in a Twisted Defender.
I am a photographer so was doing my best to run round all day taking photos (for you all!), but in between it I found a little time to get soaked by the rain and appreciate some of the awesome cars and atmosphere and buzz…
Let me introduce Twisted, they're a company from Yorkshire in the UK who modify Land Rover Defenders to a very high level to make them super awesome.
Welcome to Found Around The District, where we highlight fascinating cars we find around a city where people are too busy fighting through traffic and hunting for parking to drive anything interesting: Washington, D.C.
Truck lovers, your messiah is coming to America. Get ready to bow down and kneel at the temple of Land Roverdom because the Defender, yes, the Defender, is coming to America in the next generation.
They say the best defense is a good offense. Today's Nice Price or Crack Pipe Land Rover Defender 90 looks pretty good, but is its price offensive?
Land Rover says a new, cleaner diesel engine for the Defender is EU5-compatible. This means that, while the long-awaited, all-new Defender has yet to emerge, the current model's won a short-term fight for survival — at least in Europe.
The Land Rover Defender is like a Jeep for the tweedy crowd. Today's Nice Price or Crack Pipe 90 TDI is more than just tweedy, it's also tweety bird yellow.
The addition of 16-inch "Saw Tooth" alloy wheels and new paint is barely newsworthy, but the new Defender LE looks just that badass. Three of these and we can conquer Argentina again, mates. Then we'll never pay for Quilmes again.
Playboy Playmate Giuliana Marino learns to go off-roading in a Land Rover Defender 90. Why? Who Cares? Warning, brief NSFW images of her looking at herself naked in German Playboy. It's like Black Swan, but with Land Rovers. [via Autotopias]
Greens keepers at Royal North Devon Golf Club discovered a Land Rover Defender on its side in a bunker during their morning walk. Inside were two people dressed as pirates, asleep. Drunk driving is strongly suspected.
