Ughh.. too bad to see that the US market gets two bad engine offerings, a terrible, and terribly inefficient 4 cylinder, and A slightly more powerful, and even less efficient V6. I bet they sound good though! Throw in possibly the worst infotainment system in the industry, a price tag higher than it's more posh and parking lot friendly siblings, and what's left to brag about? The potential plug-in hybrid? Hopefully Lucas had nothing to do with that, or this thing will need a very long extension cord. I'm glad Tata kept the leaky roof windows and ditched the solid axles, and also went to an extremely stiff unibody. Because that's what off-road vehicles need... Zero flex. At least this defender isn't as blasphemous as Chevy's new blazer. Say "tata" to a former legend.

I suspect it will be considerably less durable than the original, and the computers with updating bits will probably eventually end up the same way my 1st Gen Apple TV is now after the manufacturer discontinued support and no longer lets me connect to iTunes or YouTube with it...

Somehow I see infotaiment sreens going black and suspension going flat for no reason as soon as the guarantee expires.

A) Can you not remove the top?
B) What bloody farmer is going to spend £40k on a Landy now? Fookin 'ell.

For a modern day SUV this seems to tick a lot of boxes. A new Defender??? HELL FUCKING NO!!

The last defender was so this will be as un reliable as the range rover,and its not british built.You can stuff it ,were the sun does not shine.And it looks cheap and nasty.The idea of the defender is to be a work horse on the likes of farms.But there will be idiots who will buy it for the school run.Sorry im late again miss,the car broke down again.Good idea to buy one if you can,t get the kids out of bed for school.Blame the car.

Where's the new Defender? that thing costs more than my first house! no way on earth can anyone who actually works for a living contemplate using that like a proper defender, it's too expensive and too damn chelsea.
I don't want an off-road supercomputer, I want an off-roader. Somehow I don't think lawn-rover care about their die-hard fans, reputation counts for nothing with accountants.
Leave it in the shop, go buy a Toyota!

When I first saw it at it's launch in Frankfurt, I didn't like it, but the more I see it, it's growing on me. Need to see one in the flesh mind.......Oh and I prefer the 90 to the 110!

Having worked at a Landrover dealer I can honestly say when they work they are up there with the best of them. However those moments are short lived. Also that defender is fucking ugly and that brand took 4 years to come up with that... proud to be... British??

I’m English so I was biased in favor of the new Discovery BUT they’re ugly and bland. The LEGO version is more how it should look. I’d rather have a Jeep!

Having learnt to drive on Land Rovers, and driven them and worked on them for 47 years so far. F**K IT! I'm going to buy a Dacia Duster or a Skoda Yeti.

Great, another chelsea tractor just what Jag Landrover need to make, this will turn out to be as reliable and trustworthy as Donald Trump, £40k and is made in Slovakia!! what a joke!

It's a discovery with less space. Air suspension is just more tech to go wrong, if I was a farmer I would buy a discovery 4 instead.

Love the look of it but with a £40k basic price tag and 85 ECU's just waiting to go wrong and cost an arm and a leg it's now well out of the affordable utilitarian workhorse teritory that defender fans loved and now aimed squarely at the chelsea tractor brigade. Massively disappointed that it's now just another Discovery / Range Rover clone with an unaffordable price tag!
I'll stick with my £15k 2019 Suzuki Jimny without all the electronic stuff to go wrong!

For a lot less money you can buy a four wheel drive Toyota pickup truck that won't go wrong and will probably do nearly as much as the new Defender. Or a Nissan truck like the UNHCR has been using for years.
Will the military all around the world be buying it? Somehow I don't think so. They need a simple to maintain rugged vehicle, not complicated electronics.

All you Brits...unhappy here because LR developed a new car in line with the times we live in, with modern technologies or because it is being build in Slovakia! OMG where most major car companies build there cars nowadays, coz it’s in the middle of EU where it makes sense to be for various good reasons. Just please stop moaning! You want a simple rugged car? Buy yourself a Lada Niva.. they are rugged and still selling new. They are cheap and they are built by the same guys promoting Brexit in Britain! Did I solve all of your problems??

This will be perfect for sheep farming. If by "sheep" you mean children and by "farming" you mean delivering them to a nice school. For actual sheep farming you need a Suzuki Jimny, or an old Defender.

Good car? Probably. Capable one? Same, probably. Proper offroad agricultural beast that was the old Defender? Nope. Not even close. Who would dare to proper offroad in this? One scratch and you're ***ucked.
