2016 Land Rover Defender

The Land Rover Defender is an off-road vehicle directly developed from the original Land Rover Series, which came back in 1948, so we can say that this vehicle is under production for almost seven decades. It was present in U.S. until 1998 but it became the first victim of new government regulations that required fitting all passenger vehicles with dual front airbags and side-impact protection enhancements.
