Land Rover has revolutionized terrain vehicles with their Defender franchise. This franchise is the best known in the market for terrain vehicles. Its first model was introduced way back in 1983, and since then, it has released some exceptional models in order to maintain its top position in this category of cars. Their new model – the 2017 Land Rover Defender is homage to their exceptional cars in the past. This new generation vehicle will introduce a lot of new features, as well as improved engines and drive train features. Officials have not yet revealed most of its specs and features, but several sources have come forward with reliable news about the engine variants and design attributes of 2017 Land Rover Defender.
2017 Land Rover Defender: Redesign Exterior and Interior
Styling of this new model will be very crucial to the franchise. Why is that? This is because of the fact that this 2017 Land Rover Defender is actually a reinvention of old classics. So the company is trying to design it more appropriately. On its exterior side, this car might include better lightings and a modified front fascia. Grille design might be altered a bit, with better LED head lights. At the rear side, 2017 Land Rover Defender might have a modified bumper design with Led tail lamps.
Interior specs have been kept very confidential by this company. Despite plenty of rumors, it is very unlikely that this rough terrain SUV model will undergo a transformation leading to open interiors. On the contrary, it is quite possible that Land Rover decides to change the whole upholstery of this car, thus making it more classic in nature and less modern in terms of design.
A premium model might come out during later stages of production which will include all of those exclusive interior and exterior features that are associated with this 2017 Defender.
2017 Land Rover Defender: Engine Specs
Even though there has not been any sort of confirmation on the availability of engines for 2017 Land Rover Defender, several reports conclude that there will be 2 engines for this 2017 model. Let’s have a look at the available options:
- A new 2.0 LITER Ingenium engine might come out with both gasoline and diesel variants for this car. Its mileage ratings might exceed 55 MPG, which is rather excellent for better fuel efficiency.
- Another variant might consist of a 3.0 LITER super charged engine with V6 cylinders. This might pull off around 300 HP of max power, along with 8 or 9 speed automatic transmissions.
Optional manual transmission will also be available for both engine variants, with improved suspension and impressive manual handling.
2017 Land Rover Defender: Release Date and Price
There has not been any mention of the price of 2017 Land Rover Defender, so it can be a little hard to predict and estimated value. More information will be available once this car moves in to production. This model might be available for post production display at 2015 New York or Geneva automobile shows, but it would not be available in international markets before 2017.
