In 2016 we reported the end of the Defender line. Jaguar Land Rover even had a big, teary party to farewell the then 68 year old icon. Well, it seems you can’t keep a good marque down and the long-awaited replacement for the Defender is … the Defender.

Yesterday was World Land Rover Day, marking 71 years of all-terrain history for the manufacturer. The day also marked a 1.2 million kilometer (745,645 mile) milestone in the test and development cycle for the new Defender.

Conceived in the UK at Jaguar Land Rover’s Gaydon facility, and tested everywhere from Nürburgring to Dubai, the new Defender will be rolling out of the spanking new manufacturing facility in Nitra, Slovakia later this year. The next and final stage of testing will be in the field with the Tusk Trust in Kenya, which has a long history of support from Land Rover.
