    Scott Brady of Overland Journal drives the Defender 420 miles across the Namibian desert. 10 minutes, but a well done video, and really shows how the truck behaves.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dgx_...ature=youtu.be

    1700+ lbs of payload, 300+ on the roof, 8000 lb towing, 11 1/2" of clearance.

    Somebody out on the innerwebs photoshopped an idea for cleaning up the nose and making round headlights like an old Series or Def.... I kinda like it.

    Here's what I want! A FOUR door, Heritage green, white-topped, manual, 4 cyl, 110 for sale. I thought the Heritage models were all D90s, I've never seen a 110. The last handful of Defenders off the production line got one of four trim packages as collectors items. The Heritage was an old school pale green with steel wheels, painted grills, and galvanized bumpers. They look a lot like old Series LR's.

    850,000 Namibian dollars is $54,000. Too bad if you brought it here they'd seize it.

    I like it. Paint the wheels LR white and get rid of the side steps.

    Motor Trend comparo of Defender and Jeep Rubicon - just specs to specs, no actual testing yet. Interesting - digital vs analog.

    https://www.motortrend.com/news/2020...ngler-rubicon/

    For the James Bond stunt, it says all they did was add a roll cage inside.

    What is a loaded semi doing in a dry riverbed full of sand? Or maybe that's the only flat place to drive...? Funny, these are the press cars out in Africa.

    EDIT - Video here......

    The new Defenders are being tested by journalists in Namibia in Africa. They can't release any driving information until the end of March per some marketing timing agreement with LR.

    I'm not fully endorsing this new one yet, and I don't like to sound like a fanboi, but there are some things I think will be impressive when actual testing gets published. I read that they are over 10 times stiffer than the old Defender, and 3 times stiffer than any body on frame vehicle they've ever produced. They took their newest aluminum chassis design, which will be shared with some new Discoveries I think, and beefed it up for stiffness, strength, and durability. The subframes are way heavier, control arms, everything. The body control and traction control for crawling around are impressive, and locking diffs. It'll cruise though 3 feet of water. It has skid plates. It can lift itself up to over 11" of clearance. I saw a video of one teeter-tottering on opposite corner tires, and the doors opened and shut like on flat ground. No twist.

    They'll never cut into the market share of Toyota in out of the way places, but there apparently is a simpler, coil spring version for sale in third world markets. You can order a base model with steel wheels and Duratrac tires and fabric seats (but...for 50 grand).

    There's no way to really compare the old and new, it's not apples to apples. The old ones are 50's, 60's tech - essentially a tractor like a Unimog. The new one is a mass produced, highway-comfortable, capable off-roader with quiet and safety.

    So, we'll see. It'll be interesting to see real off-road tests by the magazines. Still a really expensive car though. I saw some new spy shots of the new Bronco yesterday, and it looks fairly small and no nonsense. Not sure which engines - I assume a turbo 4. The Defender has a bunch of engines around the world, but I think we'll get a 4 and a straight 6 in the US.

    I think the exterior cargo box is silly. Maybe useful..?
