Land Rover is gearing up to bring back the Defender SUV this September. The boxy SUV will return after a hiatus of three years and will most likely be built on Discovery’s JLR D7u platform.
The British heavy-duty carmaker has retained the original boxy design of the car, giving it 18-inch wheels as well as a chunky bonnet. It also gets a steep roof along with straight lines complimenting the side. It is also expected to be offered in three-door and five-door layouts.
Mechanically, Land Rover is expected to power the Defender with a 2-litre diesel engine. It could also get a hybrid powertrain, though nothing has been confirmed yet. Being a dedicated off-roader, the Defender is also expected to be loaded with features such as the Terrain Response System, a low range gearbox, locking differentials and hill descent control among others.
