Land Rover Defender Concept

What you see here is basically what the next Land rover Defender will look like. This concept model called the DC100 will be unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show in a few weeks.

The new Land Rover Defender has been confirmed for 2015 launch. That is a long time away, and there is a good chance the concept changes until then, but it seems to have all the bases covered for a new Defender.

It has the same box-shape design, but at front and rear it is fancier and has new grille and bumpers. By the time it arrives, it’ll almost certainly will get a hybrid powertrain as well. What’s for sure, LR won’t let it be anything than spectacular off-road.


Land Rover press release:

The Land Rover DC100, a modern interpretation of the iconic Land Rover Defender will make its debut at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show.

Land Rover also confirms today, that production of a new Defender is intended for 2015.
