In the Internet published a photo of the cabin of the new Land Rover Defender. The SUV completely changed the architecture of the front panel, equipped with a digital panel and a projection display.

On the image you can see the electronic non-fixed transmission selector, rotary switches for climate control or, perhaps, the Terrain Response system, volume control, as well as a small display of the infotainment system.

Now Land Rover is actively testing prototypes of the new Defender, including in the forests of North America. The production of a serial SUV will be carried out by a plant in Slovak Nitra. The release of the novelty on the market will take place no earlier than 2020 – it is likely to coincide with the 70th anniversary of the British brand.

The SUV will be largely unified with Land Rover Discovery and will be released in two versions with different wheelbase: 90 and 110. Insiders talk about a “stretched” modification with an index of 130. In addition, in the Defender lineup a pick-up and a comfortable version of Sport with electric power plant.

Defender of the previous generation ceased to be released in January 2016. However, in January 2018, Land Rover introduced a special version of the SUV called Defender Works V8 70th Edition. She received a five-liter “aspirated” with a capacity of 405 horsepower and an eight-speed “automatic» ZF.
