Some stunning shots of the new Land Rover Defender have emerged, showcasing the reborn vehicle in one of its most favoured environments.
It’s been on an intense testing programme with the Tusk Trust in Kenya in support of lion conservation.
In doing so, it was put through a number of real-world tests in the 14,000-hectare Borana Conservancy that included fording rivers, pulling heavily loaded trailers, and negotiating difficult and varied terrain.
Nick Collins, Engineering Vehicle Line Director, Jaguar Land Rover, said,
“We are now in the advanced stages of the new Defender’s testing and development phase. Working with our partners at Tusk in Kenya enabled us to gather valuable performance data. The Borana reserve features a wide range of challenging environments, making it a perfect place to test to the extreme the all-terrain attributes of the new Defender.”
