2015 Land Rover Defender
Almost seven decades have passed since its first showing. Now, after 67 years, we are still lucky to see new models from one of the first off-roader’s company – Land Rover. For this year, it is planned a premiere of the 2015 Defender. Defender is also a lineup whose history is pretty long. First model we had in 1983, so this will be 22th anniversary.
There was short discontinuation because of the pressure of global emission regulations, but now we have Defender back in factories. Back in 1998 Land Rover had problems with regulations. The company was unwilling to update the truck to meet the safety regulations. They turned to the Range Rover and Discovery models. Current version of Defender dates from 2007. Even though thoughts are that what makes Defender so special is its tractor-like style, 2015 year model should be equipped with some modern technologies and features.

Look of the 2015 Land Rover Defender makes you think about the powertrain inside. For the 2015 Land Rover, it is expected that we will find V8 or diesel engine under the hood. Platform used for building will be LR4 or Range Rover Sport’s body or Evoque’s unibody. First Defenders had 3.5-l Buick engine.
In new millennium, engine was 5.0-l. This option will be carried over to the 2015 Land Rover Defender. US market is special, and people from company knows they must have powerful engine in offer. However, details have still been kept as secret, especially when there are indications that this will be the last run for the Defender. After all these years, it is certain that Land Rover will cancel production of this model at the end of 2015.
