Land Rover reopens the book on one of its most iconic nameplates with the all-new 2020 Defender. Its boxy shape and retro details combine with design language found on modern Land Rovers to create an appearance that's both sophisticated and nostalgic. While the 2020 Defender looks like an ordinary crossover, it has serious off-road capabilities and rugged equipment that help it live up to its go-anywhere heritage.
