At the IAA in Frankfurt, Land Rover dropped the envelopes. Then comes to the force, the concept car Land Rover DC. The draft has a a tremendous image: in 2015 it should be as the future Land Rover Defender look. So all the fans of the Defender as of now are going to have current cast iron Defender, which they affectionately call “Landy”, and there is a real problem for that. For instead of the well-maintained since 1948 by the British cult classic form, the new Defender will be a thoroughly modern SUV. No solid axles, no more walk-in hood, no wire frame.
Defender of the future will borrow the platform of the Land Rover Discovery, to drag an independent suspension and Terrain Response system in the renovated classic. Drive side newly developed four-cylinder petrol and diesel engines are expected. The Defender has not only a huge cult potential. As before, he is also an important operational instrument for military, government and institutions that require a robust and high-terrain vehicle: on the world market, he has however in recent years lost in the military especially against the heavy-duty versions of the Toyota Land Cruiser, even against the Mercedes G floor. Whether the DC 100 Land Rover is be eyed for these customers is to be seen.
