Land Rover Defender 2020 completes grueling Kenya testJune 4, 2019
The prototype of the new generation of the British off-road legend got a hefty air intake. The car was tested on the territory of the reserve in Africa, where is full of steep climbs, hard-to-reach routes – the perfect place to check the conciliarity of an SUV. The presentation is scheduled for September.
As we approach the long-awaited presentation of the new generation of Land Rover Defender SUV, which as we know will be related to the 2020 model year, Land Rover is more and more demonstrating its novelty and revealing more and more information about cars.
A couple of minutes ago, another portion of the photos appeared on the Web, showing a camouflaged prototype being tested in Africa. It is reported that the car, almost ready for the start of mass production, had to overcome some serious obstacles in Kenya. Together with the British non-profit organization Tusk Trust, the resurrected SUV was located on the territory of the Boran reserve with an area of 14,000 hectares.
The prototype of the Defender had to solve some rather difficult tasks – from tracking lions and transporting supplies to overcoming difficult terrain, and towing heavy trailers.
Land Rover engineers modified the test car to accommodate the built-in raised air intake, while camouflage was carefully designed to fit the environment.
To test the true off-road vehicle in the reserve there is everything – from muddy river banks to dense forests, but for Defender it was not a big problem, since the SUV was ready to work, and also had no problems with climbing steep rocky slopes and passing through deeply cut tracks . Well, it looks like the novelty will not disgrace the name of its legendary predecessor.
