Land Rover Defender: Buying The Parts Online

Land Rover Defender; the Best of British Automobiles:

Formerly even named as Land Rover One Ten and Land Rover Ninety, the model Land Rover Defender is actually a British utility vehicle which was originally manufactured and produced in the year 1948 by the series of Land Rover.

Original Model to be replaced:

During the years the original Defender had undergone various changes and finally has been replaced by the new model. The new Defender has been into production from the year 1991. Since the model failed to provide safety requirements to U.S; Land Rover series is thus offering U.S customers the luxurious LR4 and LR2 also known as Discovery and Freelander respectively. Total replacement can be done by the year 2015 when regulations made by Europe on the grounds of pedestrian’s crash safety will approve the current design as obsolete.

Two Other Models by Land Rover:

The compact and sports vehicle named DC100 whose replacement is intended to take place were previously displayed in the year 2011 at the Motor Show of Frankfurt. DC100 originally has three-door conventional off-roader along with turbocharged engine and diesel of 2.0 litres.

New Defender:

The Defender which is currently in series consists of wheelbases with diversions 130 inch, 93 inch and 110 inch. It has been revealed that the new model will sure be into market by the year 2015 thus, replacing the old model of Land Rover. The company is eagerly expecting an annual unit production of 60,000-80,000 for the new model which will beat its previous record of the model selling 55,000-60,000 annually.
