    If the prince of darkness has anything to do with the electrics I know there’s going to be a few surprises down the track......literally 🤣🤣
    Auto tow hitch I’m pretty sure not for Australia
    Someone else may confirm but I think we get the Reece hitch design
    Put a trailer or camper on something that isn’t bolted solid and take it across the Simpson, something has gotta give

    Tow capscity 3720 did she say...what country is that??

    Wish she was selling at Tilfords when I checked out the Defender the other day. Instead I was met with pretty much no excitement nor real knowledge about the car.

    Wife might not have liked it tho😚

    Looks like Middle East somewhere,by the rego plate.

    I was thinking,if they were, say, $85 to $95K,110,even for base model,which is definitely no poverty pack,with a diesel,they would fly out the door so quickly,LRA wouldn't be able to keep up with the demand.

    The 4cyl diesel was always about $10K less than the P400,anyway.

    I believe it's the same in the US - 3720 Kgs

    Whatever you take. Wherever it is you decide to go.The Defender 8201 lbs towing capability means it can readilyrespond to the most challenging demands. Combined withthis is the optional Advanced Tow Assist*, which allows youto reverse a trailer while Defender takes care of the countersteering. The Touchscreen** will also display both thecurrent and desired trailer trajectory1.


    Towing Receiver Kit – Detachable square receiver for cleanfinish. Trailer hitch kit to be sourced locally. Approved for upto 8,201 lbs maximum towing capacity and 771.6 lbs nose load.Towing electrics are included. Kit includes: towing receiver,module, module bracket, harness and tow eye cover.


    Same nose weight as AUS.

    You know that's exactly what I was thinking whilst standing looking at it in the yard.. and I'd have bought one then and there...but 115k plus is a bridge too far esp given the state of the econony atm.

    Maybe the 6 will be the one that suits...we'll see.
