The Land Rover Defender is an iconic off-roading vehicle which draws it's legacy from World War II. It has a 70 year long history, going through multiple iterations leading to the current generation of luxurious and highly sophisticated SUV.
After being discontinued in 2016 and then reintroduced in 2020, the current line of Land Rover Defender's had a huge facelift - both in looks and capabilities. It switched from body on frame to monococque chassis and from live, rigid axles to all around independent suspensions. A luxury SUV with a fine balance between off-road and on-road capabilities.
Just like the Jeep and Land Cruiser, the Defender has a cult following across the globe. Be it exploring the wilderness, serving in the military or a status symbol, it has stood the test of times. While the Land Rover brand has been somewhat plagued with reliability issues, it has never deterred it's fan club from owning one, such is the passion and love for this iconic model.
With all this as context, and once having spent a week exploring the African wilderness in a 30 year old Defender, it was all but natural to dream of owning a Land Rover Defender one day.
So when the time came and we got our first Defender, we decided to take it out for an over-landing trip. Obviously, it was a blast - luxury and comfort while on the road but a complete transformation when driving through deep sand, rock crawling and mowing down obstacle. A perfect companion, which can take you to the opera or wheeling through difficult terrain. Look forward to many more adventures together!
