When is the Land Rover Defender Coming Back to the US?

One of my favorite vehicles of all time is the Land Rover Defender. Defenders have not been sold in the US since 1997.

Through my investigation, I have found it was due to two issues. The first is airbags and side impact doors. Due to a lack of airbags and side impact door tests, they are not sold here. The other issue is that they were not selling too well here in the US.

I recently called two Land Rover dealerships. One here in the US and the other in the UK. Both spoke of the recent news, unreported as of yet, that Land Rover would be selling Defenders in the US again within 3 years. If you are considering buying one of the few older Defenders for sale at the exorbitant prices, we think you should hold out and wait. I have added some pictures and videso of the 2012 Defender 90 and 110.

dont know how a jeep wrangler could be any safer than a D-90, yet they are on every street corner….matter of fact, I own one. would love to see the D-90 back…been hearing the next 3yrs for the last 12 yrs…believe it when I see it. Land Rover is missing out. they have given that entire market to jeep!

I think the US EPA/DOT has hypocritical reasons for making Defenders Persona non grata in the US. I saw UPS/Fedex delivery Trucks today with open doors flying the Interstate Roads and laughed loudly at their “safety” qualifications…open doors and ugly looking bodies …there must be another reason apart from safety issues…could it be traced to Boston Tea Party?
