As it goes in the automotive industry, car developers are keen to brag about their latest, yet unseen and untested vehicles. This is exactly the case with a newly restyled 2018 Land Rover Defender. The current Defender selling’s figures might be insufficient to owners and that’s why they are planning to launch brand new, slightly improved version of the exact model, as soon as possible. To implement their idea into reality, they have at disposal a whopping $5,3 billion of investments. No wonder they are promising an SUV of the strongest engine performances, impeccable general abilities, agility, durability, and reliability. And which will be capable of providing, at the same time, an utterly feeling of a true comfort and highly attractive overall design?
Interior, Exterior & Appearance
Although the 2018 Defender’s developers didn’t reveal, practical, anything regarding its exterior, we assume that newly restyled variant would adopt an aluminum-concentrated unibody, due to the fact that almost every single vehicle from the Land Rover range has received that. That light unibody structure should allow the newly redesigned Defender to be much lighter than its predecessors and also to provide much better fuel consumption.
There is one thing only that have been officially confirmed- the 2018 Defender should retain two features from its predecessors- slab sides and the single grille face. From this newly crafted variant is expected to follow the leading trends in the automotive industry, which means to possess highly modern and desirable incorporated LED signature lightening.
When we take into our consideration the 2018 Land Rover Defender’s inner design, it is planned to draw inspiration from the Land Rover DC100 ingeniously crafted concept. So, as its role model, one of most striking interior features should be its really spacious, masterfully designed and highly tastefully equipped cabin, which is expected to far more attractive that was the case with the Defender’s previous variant.
The 2018 Land Rover Defender should come available with the following features: brightly colored leather trim seats, which will present the perfect match paired with brightly colored foot mats and a slightly longer wheelbase.
In order to satisfy more refined taste and, at the same time to attract a large number of its potential buyers, this newly revised variant should come in multiple body types of the car, as well as various trim levels- ranging from pure utility to cosseting luxury. And the last, but not the least important, the 2018 Defender will come along equipped with a far wider range of the hi-technological gadgets which will, surely, provide far more improved general managing than it was the case with the previous variant.
2018 Land Rover Defender Engine
All-new Defender is planned to feature a somehow broader range of turbocharged engines, both diesel and petrol as well as the world widely-known, V6 engines. So, under the hood, one should be able to find placed either the strongest 5.0-liter V-8s supercharged engine option or slightly weaker- a 3.0-liter V6s one or the one with a less capacity of all three- a 2.0-liter V6. All of three engines would be either linked to eight or nine-speed automatic gearbox. It is speculated about whether the car would also include manual transmission, too.
Release Date & Prices
Unfortunately, all the rumors suggest that the 2018 Land Rover Defender won’t even happen at all, but the debate is still alive whether it will or will not come to life again. One thing is for sure, the DC100 Concept did not go well and it had bad critics, which almost led to a total redesign. We still have to wait and see will they make it into production because the officials from Land Rover didn’t want to make any statement about Land Rover Defender‘s successor. Prices are yet unknown but stay tuned for updates.
