Land Rover Defender

This iconic off-road vehicle has been getting down and dirty without getting stuck for over six decades, starting out as the original Land Rover Series in 1948 before evolving into the Defender in 1983. A stalwart of the British army and deployed across the world, it has also become ubiquitous on African safaris and anywhere else a sturdy no-nonsense off-road vehicle is required. While the Defender was imported to the USA between 1993 and 1997, it was a heavily modified version and only sold in small numbers. Imports stopped when the modifications required to satisfy US Department of Transportation regulations became prohibitive, and will never be resumed. The last Defender rolled off the production lines on January 29, 2016.
