    I have not been across this, looks great . I wish they hadn't followed LandRover's lead with the silly wrapping paper.

    I hope the Ineos turns out to be what the new Defender should have been and takes the world by storm.

    No doubt we will have to wait for other body types at first? Anyway I am certainly rooting for these guys because it looks like the real deal. Even Jeep are going for IFS on some of the new models I read somewhere so the only true solid axle vehicles will be:

    suzuki jimny (fun thing, not useful for anything serious but they get high marks from me for doing it!)
    Gelandewagen in military spec (not even a contender because of price and availability)
    70 series (how long will they keep on producing that?)

    Here is hoping for the best

    Cheers,
    -P

    That really does look like a Defender, pro'ly why L-R tried to sue/patent the boxy design, but Ineos commissioned a poll and most people identified the shape as a "Jeep" IIRC.

    Absolutely , I remember a pair of LandRover owners from USA visited and I picked them up from the airport in the Defender, they were upset I didn't bring a LandRover and wondered why I came in a Jeep . They had recently bought a new Freelander. True story !

    Ineos Grenadier

    i am also watching this closely, i have DIsco3 and plan to replace it in the next 18 months, new Defender looks good but a recent video i saw on you tube about a plastic pipe grip coming loose gave me a concern, why is so much plastic used in a car that is designed to be serious off roader ? Bring it on!!!

    Nothing Land Rover builds is designed to be a serious off roader.

    Are you going the wagon or twin cab, Jerry? Perhaps you could 'Dormobile' the wagon?
    If I can't remember, then it never happened!

    Doubt it will get legs.

    Will be bespoke and no cheaper than those limited build V8 Defenders that were $150k+
