    Actually just sticking up for the defender on a defender forum.

    Social media marketing is the picture attached LR dropped on social media.

    Viral marketing is the flow on effect from this, which you are helping with every post.

    My old cars get money spent on them whenever its required. I'll always have at least one old LandRover but never again a new one.
    Fair enough

    Within LR, there are similarities between all Rangies and between the Discoverys. I expect all the Defenders will have a similar brand image. McGovern says the Defenders image will be 'durable', whatever that means.
    Spot on

Most buyers are primarily focused on appearance or perception and luxury or comfort. All these Land Rovers look a lot less capable off road than they actually are. They are surprisingly capable.

    I think the Defender will target different buyers and so it wont look like a Range Rover. Buyers who want a vehicle that looks a lot more capable. I doubt it will look like a D4, but will be boxy in appearance. It will have options for those that like a bit more Lux too.

    The capability comparison between the new Defender and other models will be interesting.

    Im hoping it also differentiates in mechanical ways like a broad, single range auto trans. If the povo pack option is in the $70k price range it will take customers from other brands without affecting sales on their other products too much.
    I'm also very interested in the spinoff models like the svx, povo pack and maybe even rumoured utilitarian version.

    The SVX Discovery should have been here by now, does anyone know what the hold up is? Will be interesting to see how that does off road.

    AULRO is the only online media I participate in as it relatively specific and not full of manipulative algorithms. I dont follow any other social media.
    You and I both share the same social media usage it seems, I don't have insty or facebook accounts, however I do google the occasional workshop facebook page to see if they are any good which is very helpful. I get your frustration with it all.

    One things for sure, Land Rover still has a huge focus on capability and their quality of build has increased massively.


    I can't work out why they focus on this off road capability so much.

    A bit more effort in quality control and reliability surely would help the company more.(they wouldn't want a repeat of the last Defender model run,as an example),but we won't go there

    I am pretty sure with their current target market,few,i bet less than 5% would be interested in off road capability.

    That could change slightly for new Defender buyers.

    Quality of build had to improve,or they wouldn't be around today.
