Fresh off the biggest leak of 2017.

...That would be the 2018 Wrangler pics, etc...Land Rover is dropping hints about the next Defender to tamp down the Wrangler buzz...

From Auto News:

"it was moments after sitting down to dinner with journalists last week during a press preview here for the new Range Rover Velar. A reporter asked McGovern if he felt pressure about the Defender as its public debut -- probably late next year or in early 2019 -- approaches. "That didn't take long, about three minutes," McGovern said, smiling. The next Defender is the most important vehicle -- I think -- in Land Rover's 70-year history."

We say YES, it is and we HOPE it's much nicer than the 'Honda Element' looking concepts we've seen at previous shows. We were TOTALLY underwhelmed with what we saw and thought the concepts were a BIG letdown.

McGovern stated clearly that it will NOT be retro...He says he is a modernist and only moves forward.

If true, then we suggest buying a classic one now because they will get even more valuable.

Is it a mistake if they don't please the classic crowd and go FULL modern?

Spies, discuss...
