Land Rover Defender news - Land of plenty - 2007

Read more on:

It’s
new, but it’s not, if you see what we mean.

This
is the Land Rover Defender, which will be launched on the world stage at Geneva
 tomorrow. 

From
the outside, it looks much like the previous model, although if you get your
magnifying glass out, you’ll spot a power bulge on the bonnet.

This
is one clue: it’s the engine.

It’s
an all-new 2.4-litre common-rail turbodiesel attached to a six-speed manual
gearbox, and will keep the current Defender on the Land Rover sales brochure
until at least 2010.

Inside
the revised vehicle, there’s also a new dash design and, that wonder of modern
technology, air conditioning to keep the Collie dogs in the back nice and
 snug.

The
revised Landie goes on sale this spring, when prices will be confirmed.
