Land Rover hinted at the release of a new Defender pickup – DRIVE

Pickups were and ancestors of Defenderand he himself is in the first generation. The photo shows a special Defender built by the unit THEN for the 24th James Bond movie “007: Specter” (2015).

Nick Collins, director of automotive programs at Land Rover, said that the pickup based on the “second” Defender “Technically feasible” as replacing the frame structure with a monocoque body “does not impose any structural constraints,” Autocar reports. Moreover, the manager acknowledged that there is “sufficient consumer demand” to justify the return of the truck. “We’ve always said the new Defender will be a family,” Collins said. They say that the pickup will not appear tomorrow, but the company is closely following the segment.

If the Defender Pickup is built, the Comtrans line awaits Hard Top (pictured on the right). It is unlikely that something like a concept will appear alongside a workhorse DC100 Sport (2011).

Autocar believes that the base of the pickup will be exclusively long-wheelbase Defenders 110 and 130 (the latter has not yet debuted). New strategy Reimagine commits Land Rover to release six electric vehicles from 2024. If a pickup truck is among them, its competitors will be Tesla Cybertruck, GMC Hummer EV, Rivian R1T, Bollinger B2 and Lordstown Endurance… With a traditional internal combustion engine, there should be more competitors.
