Production for the new Defender is slated to kick off at Land Rover's new manufacturing facility in Nitra, Slovakia where the Discovery is now assembled. Across a seven-decade lifespan, the vehicle shuttled soldiers during the Korean War and Red Cross volunteers in crisis zones, staying remarkably unchanged until tougher carbon-dioxide emission standards and pedestrian safety concerns eventually made an overhaul unavoidable.
Set to finally make its public debut later in the year, Land Rover says the new Defender will have passed more than 45,000 individual tests in some of the most extreme environment on earth.
JLR says the new Defender is now entering its final phase of testing in Kenya.
Coyle rescues Bruins in OT to strike 1st against Blue Jackets
The tone was set early on Saturday with 38 total hits in the first period and 91 hits through nearly 84 minutes of play. This game got wacky late in the first period when, during a 4-on-4, the teams combined for three goals in two minutes.
The company told City A.M. the decision was not Brexit related, but that the model was designed and engineered in the United Kingdom, and would use engines built in Wolverhampton.
We don't need Land Rover to tell us how extensive the testing programme for the next-gen Defender has been; numerous sightings of development cars on and off roads the world over have confirmed that.
This is the second model to be built at the Slovakia plant, which was officially launched in October, where JLR expects to hit annual production of 100,000 cars by 2020. European proving grounds MIRA and Lommel, alongside Italy's Covara (for its challenging mountain routes) have allowed engineers to fine-tune performance, while reliability has been tested on inclines higher than 10,000 feet above sea level and temperatures ranging from -40 to 50 Celsius. On-road dynamics were "honed" at the Nürburgring while all-terrain credentials were tested on the muddy roads of Eastnor, the rocky trails of Moab in Utah, and the sand dunes of Dubai.
Taylor Swift shatters YouTube records with ‘Me!’
In a second post with two photos of the kitty, Swift revealed his name to the world, writing, "This is Benjamin Button". Swift and Urie are set to open the 2019 Billboard Music Awards with a performance of "ME!" on Wednesday.
It is understood that the new Defender will copy its predecessor with short (90-inch) and long (110-inch) wheelbases and will be the basis for a range of vehicles with different specialties. Fuel economy figures haven't been announced, but the mild hybrid system should net a noticeable improvement in fuel consumption compared to the outgoing V6.
Because not only was it Land Rover Day-didn't you know, it's the 71st anniversary of the Land Rover's debut at the 1948 Amsterdam Motor Show?-but it also marked the completion of 1.2-million kilometres of testing in the new Defender prototype by the brand.
