Land Rover Previews the Future of the Defender with Frankfurt-Bound DC100 Concept

Land Rover Seen On

The Land Rover Defender is without doubt, one of the most renowned and recognizable off-road models in the world, which makes designing a replacement model an extremely challenging task, to say the least.

And mind you, the new Defender isn’t as far away as you may think as Land Rover also confirmed today that production of the new model is "is intended for 2015".

Commenting on the DC100 concept car, Land Rover's design boss, Gerry McGovern, had this to say:

"Replacing the iconic Defender is one of the biggest challenges in the automotive design world; it is a car that inspires people worldwide. This isn't a production-ready concept but the beginning of a four-year journey to design a relevant Defender for the 21st century."

What this means is that Land Rover plans to gauge the level of interest in the design of the DC100, be that positive or negative reactions, and make the necessary changes or perhaps even change the styling direction if it fails to ignite some passion.

"We plan to engage with existing and potential customers to help us finalise the details of the new vehicle," says Land Rover's global brand director, John Edwards. "One thing's for sure, it's going to be an exciting journey, and we can't wait to get going."
