Land Rover is ringing in the new year a little early this year by announcing that the next Defender will be coming to the shores of North America in 2020 after making its debut in 2019.
You may have seen on Instagram and Facebook recently that testing of the new Defender in camo is already underway in multiple locations around the world. The first of the all-new Defender prototypes started testing in North America in early December and JLRNA was nice enough to send us photos from a few of their varying proving grounds in America. Land Rover plans on subjecting the truck to rigorous extremes to make sure the new Defender is the most off-road capable Land Rover vehicle ever; operating in temperatures from -40F to +120F while driving the test vehicles on- and off-road at altitudes of more than 13,000 feet above sea level. North America provides Land Rover Engineers with a wide variety of terrain and surfaces on which to test their vehicles.
