Big news from Land Rover is the coming of the next-generation Defender, which according to AutoExpress in the UK, could be getting a new SVR version.
Land Rover’s been planning some big things with their newly established Special Vehicle Operations division in partnership with Jaguar, and Land Rover’s design chief, Gerry McGovern, apparently hinted at this new Defender SVR’s plan to stand up against the Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG. And those are some pretty damn big shoes to fill.
The next-gen Defender is so far rumored to be scheduled for a launch date sometime in 2018.
Additionally, this new SVR variant won’t be the only variant to the Defender line. Other reports suggested the Defender will even come with a minimum of five body styles.
Either way, a new Defender is coming, and that’s all we care about.
