    After much anticipation, the new Land Rover Defender is finally here! Richard Hammond found a spanking new 90 and 110 in the middle of the woods somewhere and it looks like he approves of the redesign of the British off-roading icon. Watch as he takes you through all the main features of the 2020 Defender!

    Can't say that I'm real excited about this new Defender. This probably would have worked better as the new Discovery.

    The English off-road icon is now Indian. Not much of an icon if you ask me.

    Yeah...can't believe it went from this:



    to this:



    I was thinking/hoping that a Defender revival would be some sort of G Wagen competitor...but not this, I wouldn't even put this on the Wrangler's level.

    WTF happened to his face? He looks like Charles Manson now, and that little Elvis curl doesn't help. Get a razor, dood. Then use it. Ditto a comb and some Vitalis. Krikey!

    IMHO it is a nice car BUT it is a 180 degree reversal from the defender the defender should NOT have 80 computers
    not to mention the lack of ground clearance and fording depth for a legendary offroad safari car

    It's all that stress from earning that $240 million Amazon deal. Lol, and he just turned 50!

    Agreed. Now we know why they nerfed the new Disco. Ugh.

    Agreed! I miss simplicity. This is just another disposable appliance for the masses.

    That picture perfectly illustrates one of the things I don't like on this new Defender. It's got that Angry Birds grill treatment that's all the rage in the Wrangler community. Now that I've seen it I can't unsee it.
