Land Rover Defender Service and Repair

Motorcars LTD opened its first all British car repair shop in Houston Texas back in 1972. In those days we had all the British made vehicles and plenty of them coming through the shop. Eventually when Jaguar (and later Land Rover) became the two remaining British-made cars sold in the U.S.A, Motorcars became known as Houston’s Land Rover repair experts.

A Closer Look At The Land Rover Defender Model

The Land Rover Defender (initially called the Land Rover Ninety and Land Rover One Ten) is a British four-wheel-drive off-road utility vehicle developed from the original Land Rover Series launched in 1948. Production finally ended on January 29 2016 when the last Defender, rolled off the production line. The Ninety and One Ten where later renamed the “Defender 90” and “Defender 110” to avoid confusion with the Land Rover Discovery.

The Defender only sold in the US between 1993 to 1997. These US models where fitted with the 3.9 Litre and was later improved to the 4.0 Litre.

The Defender stop selling in the US due to a 1998 regulation that required vehicle to include airbags. The Defender could not be fitted with these without major modifications, which given the small numbers of NAS vehicles sold in relation to Land Rover’s global sales, were not economically viable.

2020 Defender

Let’s take a look at what we know so far…

“How do you define an icon?” Good question.

Land Rover imported the last NAS Defender in 1997 but continued production and sales world wide until production ended in 2016.

Now in 2020, Land Rover has announced the debut of the New Land Rover Defender.

Available in both 90 and 110 inch wheelbases, these new vehicles are a far cry from the basic utility vehicle that bore the name, Defender.

Air suspension, Adaptive Dynamics, Terrain Response, Dynamic Stability Control, Electronic Traction Control, Roll Stability Control, Cornering Brake Control….have I missed anything? Oh yeah, there are creature comforts, connect-ability, sophistication, and safety. Just kidding.

These are the things that can best describe what we know about the New Defender so far.

So, “How do you define an icon?” Good question. We can’t wait to see it!
