This is clearly visible from the renderings above – the vehicle is still easily recognizable as a Defender, but now incorporates a front fascia that’s inspired by the Range Rover and Discovery. LED headlights will be part of the equipment in the more expensive trims while the regular variants, we expect, will feature standard halogen lamps.
Seen here is the two-door version of the 2020 Defender which should be the most capable off the road of the entire lineup. Its short overhangs in combination with the raised suspension will probably allow it to cope perfectly with steep hills, snow, dust, and mud.
At launch, under the hood of the resurrected off-roader should be a 2.0-liter turbodiesel, which will be joined by a hybrid powertrain later during the SUV’s lifecycle. It will be interesting to see what will power the vehicle in the United States, where it will arrive in 2020.
The two-door Defender is expected to launch together with a longer five-door model which will have significantly more room in the cabin. Additionally, a pickup body style is believed to be in the works as well, but nothing has been confirmed yet.
