    Yes i was thinking that,but this one is already around 5m long,then if you add a bar,thats going to increase.

    I didn't like the idea of it getting any longer,as it will struggle to fit in the garage.

    Although heaps of those dual cab utes are way longer than 5M.


    But yes thats a good thought.

    They say that the future 130" will have the same wheelbase as the 110". So they'll do a poor mans extension like the D1 to D2 "upgrade"... New Defender an immediate successNew Defender an immediate successNew Defender an immediate success

    8 - 130 in the wings

    Leaked internal documents suggest the third Defender Ė the 130 Ė will join the family from 2022. Land Rover isnít officially saying anything for now, but those leaked documents suggest the 130 will share the 110ís 3022mm wheelbase but with a larger body with more rear overhang.

    Definitely footwear. I don't do thong underwear, it would not be a pretty sight.

    I reckon this is a straight replacement for a D4. And like them will do a good job Offroad.

    It will be interesting to read both positive & negative feedback on this vehicle in say, one & two years time.

    Shane posted this on another thread New defender...err discovery? ....

    "Read a brief interview with Gerry McGovern:
    Defender designer Gerry McGovern on reviving an icon | Autocar
    Interesting comment in that the Defender is aimed at the previous D3/4 owner:"

    What does the Defenderís look mean for the next-generation Discovery? It looks to some degree to have moved into a space that car used to live in?
    ďThatís a fair question. People will graduate to this Defender who had a Discovery 4, we suspect, and we are planning for that. Letís say the next-generation Discovery now has some room to move and do a different job. It might allow us to move Discovery on, although it bears saying again that the Discovery remains a true seven-seater in our range, whereas the Defender is a 4+2 or 4+4 or 5+3, depending how you configure it.

    I wonder what he means 'move Discovery on'.

    It is the lowest selling vehicle in their range going by the sales numbers.

    They must have got the message that they struggle to sell it to current D3/4 owners.

    It is also bigger than the new 110,as is the D4,and yes i know there is a new 130 arriving in the next few years.

    What they need to do is a remodel of its rear end,its definitely is not appealing to the eye,that would be a start.

    My way of thinking is they have to many vehicles in the one class,D5,RRs,RR,all competing against each other.
