New 2017 Land Rover Defender USA Rumors, Release Date
One of the most capable cars from Land Rover series will be available at the end of 2015 that is called 2017 Land Rover Defender and it is scheduled for the sales market in 2016. At this time, there are a very huge rumor spreading about the latest details of this new version especially for its design and performance.
We do hope that you still remember about the concept of 2011 Land Rover DC100 because this 2017 Land Rover Defender will be based on it. This concept was introduced few years ago and if this issue comes true, it means that the new design for this generation will be not too much far from the pictures we have collected as below.
We have no doubt to say that the final design for this car has been signed by the automaker. That is why we would be glad to know about the official photos few months ahead related to 2017 Land Rover Defender. Of course, the development is possible so that the rendered pictures above perhaps will be a bit different from its production since the company also still has more time to give more refreshments especially for its bodywork to make it more acceptable among buyers. Before, the concept of DC 100 was welcomed by audience and we think that it is reasonable to use this concept. It is also strongly predicted that the platform will be the PLA platform to offer stronger and stiffer aluminum monocoque chassis with the bigger wheels that are a bit like Land Cruiser or Toyota Hilux. This way will make the car have better performance especially to deal with the different weather condition.
Speaking about the cabin, we have no word to describe it because the rendered pictures do not show us about the interior of 2017 Land Rover Defender. What we believe is it will be a luxury and premium car with the support of high quality materials including Alcantara and also Nappa leather around the modern infotainment system, audio system and also satellite navigation.
Engine Range and Transmission
When it comes to the performance, there are no details available yet. Some unofficial sources mentioned that 2017 Land Rover Defender is possible to go with diesel and petrol engine. It means that the car has turbocharged I-4 and also V6 power unit. Rumors also claimed that the alternative could be V6 engine from Jaguar. To transmit the power, the company could offer eight or nine-speed auto or manual transmission.
2017 Land Rover Defender Release Date
2017 Land Rover Defender could be introduced at the end of next year with the promotion starts in one of 2015 Auto Shows that could be in New York, Geneva or Frankfurt. It is prepared for sales in 2016 as we have mentioned above.
