I don't care if the show is good now, or if it's maybe even better than it was before (it's not), but THIS IS NOT TOP GEAR!

      Craig GagnonCraig Gagnon7 måneder siden
    • @Ricky yeah, a lot of people wanted a land rover counterpart to a land cruiser prado with a solid axle at least at the back. But LR doesnt have a platform for that and developing a ladder frame platform with solid axles in 2020 makes no sense doesnt it? You should look at Ford Bronco instead then, ford used light pickup gear in that car. Also, if you want to exclude range rover then exclude Disco 1 too, as they shared a lot of components underneath.

      Vasiliy NechepurenkoVasiliy Nechepurenko7 måneder siden
    • @Vasiliy Nechepurenko yes ,it is the 300tdi four banger ,I mentioned it wrong by mistake,pardon me for that ! I agree ,that the petrol powered versions were unreliable because of the rejected Buick v8 ! And yes ,how could you give the range rover as the reason,because this car was the most unreliable output ! Also you see,just like the jeep,I atleast wanted the solid front and rear axle! The looks might be a bit of a debate ! And also a ladder frame chassis! That's it!

      RickyRicky7 måneder siden
    • @Ricky first, td5 was introduced with Disco2. Second, petrol versions of both have been terrible. And im not even going to talk about smaller things in Disco1 and 2. Then there was disco 3/4 with broken crankshafts on diesel engines (very expensive repair). Until 2013/2014 LR had a major reliability flaw somewhere in the range, but not anymore. There is no "bad" engine or transmission version on any of the vehicles that they make now. New defender uses a reinforced and upgraded gear from the big range rover which is absolutely solid in terms of its suspension, engine and transmission.

    • @Vasiliy Nechepurenko the series 3 ! there is an amazing story behind it for covering million miles ! And the old discovery 1 with it's td5 never used to fail! Old land rovers had won the camel trophy !

      RickyRicky7 måneder siden
  • I am sure it’s a very capable machine but let’s be frank you could put a Mitsubishi or izuzu badge on it and people wouldn’t look twice . They should have done a G Wagon job on the old one and they’d have nailed it but this incarnation is going to depreciate like a stone and be very ‘meh’ in about three years form now . Actually I am already a bit bored with it it’s been touted around for almost a year so it’s kind of old hat . Bad marketing strategy, either some one got the timing all wrong in the hope it would crescendo into a massive demand or they have had serious problems with it . Either way I won’t be trading my Puma 110 for it . Went to the launch and to be frank the old one had more load space , I can fit nearly 50% more stuff in the back with the second row in place than the new one , go see it , the rear trunk in the new is a big disappointment . It’s all lumps and bumps and curvy shapes so while the % of space maybe the same the actual usable space is much less .

    Mr DiavelMr Diavel7 måneder siden
    • Xenon Archer the New G wagon has a traditional ladder chassis just like the old defender albeit more up to date to it is perfectly doable in a 2020 car. Indeed the new Grenadier which will be the true modern defender is also ladder chassis and live axles . The only area that the old defender falls short is in a roll over but then most enthusiast owners fit a roll cage which makes it totally roll over proof . Frontal and side impacts the defender generally comes off pretty well , head in or rear becaue it has that massive ladder chassis and side on because normal size cars end up going under rather than into because it sits so high , you see a lot of crashes into defenders at medium speeds and the defender often just drives off leaving the modern car buckled , High speed they lose out because there is no crumple zones so all the energy goes straight through the chassis but then not many defenders are flying around at 80 mph the average speed of a defender is 45 mph on A roads and 60 mph on motorways (Otherwise fuel burn is horrible ). So it is perfectly possible to build a traditional body on ladder live axle modern 4x4 and meet and exceed all safety standard , Merc did it . Land Rover went a different route to cater for a more up market wealthy clientele and went all softy but I think it was a big mistake it’s usability , fix ability , flexibility has all gone .

      Mr DiavelMr Diavel7 måneder siden
    • @Mr Diavel an old defender isnt safe for the people in it, or anything it hits due to its aincient design. you cant really modernise the defender in the same way as the G wagon. im fairly sure the defender used a truck style chassis, though that could be an older land rover that im thinking of. either way, knowing how old fashioned the defender was, im not the slightest bit surprised to see a completely new design that doesnt have anything in common with the old one because its just not possible. i think the look of the car is ok. still has a defender style to it but i'll admit that it does look softer and less sturdy than its predecessor and youre probably right about it having a short shelf life

      Xenon ArcherXenon Archer7 måneder siden
    • Xenon Archer that’s probably true but least not forget in the UK at least the defender has the lowest death rate per million miles of any car on the roads . Partly I guess because your always driving much slower than regular cars and owners tend to be more commercial drivers / workers and enthusiasts . But my point is they could have achieved similar to what Mercedes did and that is keep the character of the car but have all the safety and efficiency features of a modern car . This new version of the defender is never going to have the kudos or the respect of the old , it’s just another yummy mummy and hipsters shopping cart and will have a shelf life of maybe 15 years and most will end up in the scrapper . Whereas Mercedes have not only kept the character of the G wagon they have made it better , you won’t find any G wagons being scrapped or worth pennies in 20 years .
