    This is the one at Gosford, a D240 , it is available for test drive, I overheard the sales person asking another couple if they wanted to take it for a drive. I only had time to take a couple of pics, and sit in the passenger seat. Seat is very comfy, being a lot flatter in the base than some previous efforts from LR. Load space is wider inside than the door size which is good, i.e. they didn't shrink the cargo space to match the door width. Does not look like it will be long enough to sleep in the back.... might have to wait for the 130, preferably with the D350 donk.

    Stopped into Landrover Artarmon, they have had 3 new Defenders in since Thursday, I test drove a Black 3.0L petrol (P300 I think) and a silver D240. If you are feeling flush they also have a 'Godwana Stone' D240 SE with Explorer pack for sale for $120K which looked great. I was comparing to my Disco which has an SDV6 and the D240 felt a little underpowered, but not significantly however the petrol was was good. The salesguy told me all the engines were changing on future orders and the new Ingenium 3 litre 6 cylinder diesel would be available which I think I would wait for. Its definitely the Discovery 4 replacement, the driving height felt a little higher than the discovery and very comfortable....

    Did they say how much more for the bigger diesel?

    Going on D5 prices it will at a guess be around $10 to $12K more.

    So it becomes quite a bit more expensive.

    Pushes the SE with explorer pack up over $130K

    No, he had no idea how much or even how to order one....

    I think in the scheme of things 10k for the better engine isnít that bad considering the cost of all the other add onís.... and the happiness the bigger engine would give every time you put your foot down New Defender spotted

    If the image is tilted so that the horizon is closer to level [example, the green thing that I've added the red line to in the background] it doesn't look as steep any more...

    Going down hill so will be fine.
    Even uphill,with TC,it will scramble through with a wheel up,that is what the latest electronics do.An E diff will help as well,if fitted.
    Wheel travel is not as critical as it was in older models with open diffs and no TC.
    It was all about driver ability and experience in those days.
