The New Range Rover EV and Jaguar XJ EV Delayed, But Only By a Little

The New Range Rover EV and Jaguar XJ EV Delayed, But Only By a Little

The delay is by a couple of months, but at least the Range Rover EV is confirmed by the automaker

The pandemic threw a spanner in the works for most of the automakers out there. This seemed to have happened at the worse time since this is the transition phase and many automakers were gearing up to launch new electric vehicles. Jaguar and Land Rover are no exceptions to that. Autocar got hold of a transcript of JLR’s conference call with its investors which reveals the debut date for electric cars from both brands will debut in October and November. This is slightly delayed when compared to the earlier planned launches in August and September.

Land Rover Looking to Shed Cylinders From its Range-Topping V-8 Diesel

A report that Land Rover’s V-8 Diesel is living on borrowed time comes from a reliable source

In this day and age, with electrification being pushed hard and fines from emissions regulations capable of putting automakers in the ground if they don’t comply, every manufacturer has started downsizing and electrifying engines to carry on business as usual. Now a new report from autocar – one that cites “auto parts suppliers” claims that Land Rover’s aging 4.4-liter, Ford-sourced, diesel V-8 is set to be replaced by something smaller, but the question is what?

The Mercedes-AMG G 63 Will Have a New BMW-Powered Competitor in the Land Rover Defender SVR

That’s right, a Land Rover Defender SVR is coming

Hear this out: Jaguar Land Rover is hiding a high-performance prototype based on the new Defender which will ultimately make it to production under the SVR badge. The model is currently developed by Jaguar Land Rover’s Special Vehicle Operations (SVO) division and when it finally hatches, the Defender SVR will use a 4.4-liter BMW-sourced engine in its attempt to give the Mercedes-AMG G 63 a run for its money.

A 2020 Land Rover Defender Pickup Truck? We Say “Yes, Please, With Sugar on Top”

A 2020 Land Rover Defender Pickup Truck? We Say “Yes, Please, With Sugar on Top”

Despite the desire, Land Rover just won’t make the Defender Pickup

Now that the new 2020 Land Rover Defender has graced this pretty planet of ours after a three-year hiatus, all is right once again. So far, we’ve seen the Defender 90 and 110, but the rumor mill has churned out word that the Defender range will be expanding to include at least a 130 model that rival the Mercedes G-550 – at least in terms of pricing, anyway. A lot of interest has been expressed in a Defender pickup truck and, we’re not going to lie, it would probably get a lot of attention. Land Rover has come right out and said it isn’t going to happen despite the fact that the old Defender was offered as a pickup in various global markets. The rendering you see here, though, we hope, will change Land Rover’s mind because it’s certainly something we would like to see.

Can The 2020 Land Rover Defender Tackle The Harsh Desert in Dubai?

Can The 2020 Land Rover Defender Tackle The Harsh Desert in Dubai?

The company is very focused on making this the most capable Land Rover of all time, so our answer is a resounding yes

Land Rover is finally bringing back the Defender as a 2020 model. The rugged SUV was in production from 1983 to 2016, after which it went on a short exile for a few years. The company has teased the new Defender a few times, and this time, it decided to put out a video that shows the SUV doing test runs in some extreme conditions. The new Defender prototype was taken to Sharjah and handed over to the Red Cross Experts to test on the mighty sand dunes in the desert. Is the 2020 Defender still as tough as its previous iterations?

Leaked LEGO Technic Kit Gives Us Our First Glimpse at the 2020 Land Rover Defender

Leaked LEGO Technic Kit Gives Us Our First Glimpse at the 2020 Land Rover Defender

I never wanted a pile of bricks so bad in my life

The Land Rover Defender is coming to the U.S. after an absence spanning more than two decades. But before the 2020 Defender hits our shores, it could be pre-empted by a smaller, but no less awesome, version. This, folks, is LEGO’s latest masterpiece: a 2,573-piece LEGO Technic replica of the iconic Land Rover Defender, complete with a working steering mechanism, a four-speed sequential gearbox, a chassis with three differentials, an independent suspension, and a winch that actually works. Mind you, this is a LEGO Technic version of the OG Land Rover Defender, though, with the specs, you’d be forgiven for thinking it was the real deal. The LEGO Technic Land Rover Defender is scheduled to come out in October, one month after the actual 2020 Defender debuts, presumably at the 2019 Frankfurt Motor Show.

2020 Land Rover Defender reveals a bit more skin in new photos and video

2020 Land Rover Defender reveals a bit more skin in new photos and video

All-new Land Rover Defender helped protect elephants in Kenya for testing purposes

Production of the all-new 2020 Land Rover Defender is reportedly ramping up at the company’s plant in Nitra, Slovakia. We’re still a few months away from seeing the finished product, though, and many details surrounding it are still not very clear.

We have had our best look at it so far, courtesy of an official video (and photo gallery) that highlighted the fact that pre-production prototype Defenders were actually used by park rangers in Kenya. The video is meant to evoke the Defender’s outdoorsy spirit and its capability in the toughest conditions in the world, but what we were more interested in was to get a better glimpse of of the car itself - and we did, even though the video doesn’t really have any clear closeups of the car.

All-New Land Rover Defender Debuts This September, Goes On Sale In 2020

All-New Land Rover Defender Debuts This September, Goes On Sale In 2020

New information on the much-anticipated completely redesigned 2020 Land Rover Defender

After years of working on it, Land Rover is going to reveal an all-new Defender this year. The old Defender was phased out in 2016 mainly due to the fact that it did not meet safety standards for both occupants and pedestrians - they couldn’t even equip the old one with airbags, so a ground-up redesign was decided.

2020 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque

2020 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque

Mild redesign on the outside, new tech on the inside

Launched in 2011, the Range Rover Evoque pioneered the luxury compact SUV market, prompting other premium brands to either join the niche or improve upon existing models. Come 2018, and Land Rover has introduced the second-generation crossover, placing it again high above the competition.

Redesigned on a brand-new platform, the second-gen Evoque ditched its old Ford-sourced engines and adopted JLR’s new four-cylinder diesels. More importantly, almost all drivetrains are now 48-volt mild hybrids, with a plug-in hybrid set to join the lineup in 2019. Land Rover took a rather evolutionary approach to the Evoque’s design inside the out, so it remains familiar. The redesign is more of the facelift variety styling-wise, but everything is new under the shell.

Update 02/12/2019: We’ve updated this review with a bunch of new pictures taken that the 2019 Chicago Auto show. Scroll on down to the gallery below to check them all out!

2020 Land Rover Discovery Sport

The updated SUV could pave the way for the next-generation model’s arrival.

Land Rover is already working on a next-generation Discovery Sport, but with the model still a few years away from arriving, a facelifted version of the current Discovery Sport is making test rounds. The prototype is wrapped in heavy camouflage, but the overall shape of the SUV suggests that there could be a lot of changes made to the updated Discovery Sport ahead of the next-generation model’s arrival in a few years.

Update 01/10/2019: The 2020 Land Rover Discovery Sport playing in the Scandinavian Snow. Check out the new shots in our gallery at the bottom of the page.

The 2020 Land Rover Defender is Aimed at the Heart of North America

The new Land Rover Defender is officially coming to America, folks

The Land Rover Defender and its boxy appearance won over enthusiasts thanks to its timeless styling and off-road capabilities. The last model, which was largely unchanged since it hit the market in 1983 was discontinued in 2016, and there has been a cry for a new generation ever since. Recently, Land Rover decided to show off one image of the new Defender, and everyone was drooling. But, not as much as you’re going to drool today as Land Rover not only released a handful of official spy shots but has finally confirmed its debut in 2019 as a 2020 model. The best part is that it’s coming to America!

Land Rover Teases The New Defender

Land Rover Teases The New Defender

Will this little SUV be able to manoeuvre to the top through the crowded off-roader segment?

Land Rover teased a picture of a new off-roader yesterday. Although the company hasn’t mentioned the name or any other details, we are guessing it’s the new Defender. The off-roader, in the picture, is seen ramping out of a trailer, covered in zebra camouflage, looking kind of like a Mercedes G-Class. What an early Christmas present this is!
