A new Land Rover Defender is on the way. It is apparently going to make its international debut on film in the new James Bond movie, because of course it is. Anything that makes its way onto a movie set is bound to be leaked, because people with cameras tend to end up on movie sets. And they know what to do with photographs.
This one has been making the rounds today, and the beans were spilled most recently via shedlocktwothousand on Instagram.

I’m not going to get in trouble for this — because it’s all over #facebook at the moment! Here is what looks like the first uncovered #defender2020 — straight (apparently) from the film set of the new #bond movie! Makes sense! A few things come to mind. Firstly, the winch is excellent. Secondly, the alpine windows are still there! Thirdly, the rear passenger door looks massive — you’ll never open that in a Tesco car park! Fourthly, there seems to be quite a bit of wheel clearance (though it’s unknown if this is standard height, off road height, or on coils!). Fifthly, checker on the bonnet (yes, the bonnet is a funny shape and there is no real wing to speak of). Sixthly, I’m not sure about the mirrors at all. Seventhly.... well, this could clearly go on a bit! #landroverdefender #allnewdefender #landroverdefender #landrover #thebest4x4xfar #landrovertheworldover #landroverworld #bignews #didntmakefrankfurt #someonesheadwillrollforthis #spyshot #spyfilm #jamesbondfilmset #allnewdefender2020 #newdefender #newdefendernews #newlandroverdefender #defender #landroverdefender #landroverdefender110 #defender110
This off-roader appears to carry quite a lot of heritage cues from its forebears, including a large flat hood, chunky sides, and an instantly recognizable side profile. It’s about time this big block on wheels made its way back into dealer showrooms, and I, for one, cannot wait to see them littering the streets of Hollywood. The Defender name is important to Land Rover, from a historical and sales standpoint. It built the brand’s reputation as a king of the off road. With style and poise that can only be pulled off by the Brits, the Defender has always been ready for anything. Watch out, G-Wagen. There’s a new chonky SUV boy in town.
