It’s time for TAE’s pointless hot take!
The Defender is probably a true competitor to the Jeep Wrangler JL and the upcoming Ford Bronco. Prices aren’t very comparable, no, but on the lifestyle(tm) department, I think this gives the more expensive versions of the Wrangler a true run for their money, specially considering this one is probably more comfortable, easier on gas, and easier to live with for 95% of Wrangler owners.
I think that based on the pricing scheme and the design, Land Rover might be loosing out on the G-class market, but who knows, maybe they’ll do the SVR thing and put a V8 in there for good measure.
Also, the front end design is....not of my liking, but the interior is great. Lets see what Ford brings to the table!
