2012 New York: Land Rover DC100 Expedition Concept is perfect for exploring

Land Rover introduces DC100 Expedition concept and two special editions in New York.

The Land Rover DC100 Expedition concept has made its official debut today at the 2012 New York Auto Show, as part of the celebration for its 25th anniversary here in North America.

Land Rover chose to debut this concept as a way to “explore the possibility of brining the Defender back to the U.S. market.” It varies from the original DC100 concept largely by accessories, which consist of a roof rack, winch and a snorkel. Also, a Wade Aid system has been added, which measures the depth of any water the DC100 might be traveling in by sonar. Slight design differences like short overhands, an upright windscreen, vertical panels and strong shoulder panels were tweaked for the updated concept.

To help the model adapt to different driving conditions, Land Rover fitted the concept with Terrain Response, and a new system that creates a topography map of what lies ahead, displays it in 3D, and then offers alternative routes, called the Terrain-I system.

Egm is in favor of the return of the Defender, are you?
