New Land Rover Defender Reaches Development Milestone
Posted in Models | 30/04/2019
Milestone moment on #WorldLandRoverDay as new Land Rover Defender prepares to undergo further tests!
A Defender prototype wearing a unique camouflage will undergo thorough testing at the Borana Conservancy as part of Land Rover’s 15-year partnership with Tusk Trust.
Testing will include towing heavy loads, wading through rivers and carrying supplies across unforgiving terrain in a series of real-world trials at the 14,000-hectare reserve.
By the time the new Defender makes its public debut later this year, it will have passed more than 45,000 individual tests in some of the most extreme environments on earth. Land Rover engineers have taken the test fleet to the 50-degree heat of the desert, the sub 40-degree cold of the Arctic, as well as up to 10,000ft altitude of the Rocky Mountains in Colorado to ensure the new Defender will take everyday life in its stride, for even its most adventurous customers.
