The classics are making their comeback! The Land Rover Defender is finally returning to North America. In 2020, the first Defender in twenty years will be ready for purchase with U.S. specifications. The automaker will do a reveal sometime in 2019, possibly before the end of the auto show season this spring.
Information is being kept in confidence, but a few details have hit the streets. They will have two-door and four-door variants; spy photos have verified that claim. No technical details have been released. Camouflaged spy photos show a boxy prototype body that encompasses the true nature of the original. It looks like it has a fully independent suspension along with the rest of the Land Rover family. The brand has made the statement that it will be the most-capable off-road vehicle it has built.
