New Defender – the latest update

4wdNewz has keenly followed the rumour trail leading to the next Land Rover Defender because its predecessors' place in the country's automotive heritage and because it's relatively popular among off-road enthusiasts. It now seems that the new model will look little or nothing like those widely publicised concepts, according to UK Autocar, a magazine that has its finger on what's happening better than most. The full report is here.

Among the key points:
• Land Rover has ‘frozen’ the final shape of the Defender.
• The new design won’t be a direct replacement for the outgoing model.
• It will need to sell more than 50,000 a year to be viable.
