    I wonder about the combo of the Alpine windows that Ryan mentioned and the hood/light combo. Those are always
    what personified them from a design standpoint. It's really hard to tell if there's a nod to those here. I kind of like the
    "2x4s" that seem to have been added in.

    Harry is 6' 2" and perspective is hard to gauge. Notice there's a guy in a wheelchair so it's entirely possible the vehicle is down low in access mode which would throw off the height guess.

    There may be Alpine windows on the back that are masked by those coverings...it's sure hinting of them

    Here is one with William and he is a touch taller I think? Clearly a bit larger looking Defender overall - whatever they come out with, they will probably offer a non-air suspension version for countries where it would be ill-advised to have one...

    Land Rover guy: "Hey, Tusk. Mind if we take your Defender 110 with bulletproof Michelin XZL's and give you this new Defender, rolling on dubs?"

    Tusk: ...

    Looking a lot like a respectable replacement to the LR4 at best!
    Perhaps a pricey blown up Kia Soul or Jeep Patriot at worst....
    Well We’ll see soon enough!

    True shame it’s definitely no where near Wrangler or G-Wagon territory! Guess we’ll have to see how the new Bronco fairs in that regard ;0)

    New G-wagon is a perfect example of modernizing a classic. Put two generations together and you know it’s the same family....not the case at all for the Defender
