Defender concept toughens up

Possibly stung by a lukewarm reception to the new Defender DC100 concept by enthusiasts and hard-core users, Land Rover is showing a "tougher" kitted-out version at the Los Angeles motor show. Added gear includes "off-road" 20-inch alloys with Cooper all-terrains, a snorkel, winch and roof rack. The roof rack and20-inch rims suggest, however, that they're still some distance from realityHere's an earlier report.


  1. Luke warm? I would call it scathing.

  2. It's not a Defender, it's a Freelander. With Botox. About as useful as the dreadful new FJ Cruiser.
