The pickup truck market could soon become richer for the new premium version. Land Rover is working on the successor of the legendary Defender off-roader. Its debut will likely coincide with brand’s 70th-anniversary celebration late this year. The new Defender will try to defend its title of one of the most capable off-roaders but will be marketed as the premium priced model and Land Rover plans the large family of Defenders.
Not only that new Defender will return in the short and long wheelbase forms with two or four doors, yet Land Rover plans to offer various trim options including high luxury version and performance-focused Defender. However, the new Defender is also expected to get the pickup truck version, probably sometime after the arrival of the familiar forms. The regular versions will arrive as the 2019 models and truck version could also appear as the 2019 Land Rover Defender Truck sometime later in the model year.
