We already expected this, but today Land Rover has confirmed that the 2020 Land Rover Defender will be offered in the US and Canada. Luckily we won’t have to wait to see the next-generation Defender, since Land Rover has also confirmed that it will debut in 2019.
In addition to confirming when we’ll get the next-generation Defender, Land Rover has also released a big batch of photos of prototypes testing in various spots throughout North America, including off-road and even in New York City.
“There are a handful of automobiles that are beloved around the world and stand for a brand, a country and a distinct way of life. The Land Rover Defender is such a singular vehicle,” said Kim McCullough, Vice President of Marketing for Jaguar Land Rover North America. “On behalf of Land Rover and our retailers, we are proud to announce the voices of American and Canadian customers has been heard: The all new Defender will be for sale here starting in 2020. This announcement is a holiday gift to our Defender fans in North America and a hint of what’s to come in the New Year.”
