Land Rover has given its first glimpse of the new Defender ahead of its world premiere at the Frankfurt Motor Show.
The vehicle will be revealed at 9:00 BST on 10 September in front of an expectant audience. Before then the new Defender is tackling its first expedition – crossing the remote Charyn Canyon in Kazakhstan on its way to Germany.
The road to reveal will test the new vehicle’s capability and durability as it crosses one of the world’s most landlocked locations, and travels among the towering 300m canyons in the Valley of Castles.
Driven by a passion and respect for the original, the new Defender delivers transformational breadth of capability and advanced all-terrain technologies to redefine adventure for the 21st century. But it remains true to the pioneering spirit that has been a Land Rover hallmark for 71 years.
