    • Well I might take an old defender if I could modify it as I would put an urban automotive body kit and a winch along with a new dash but a new defender if I couldn’t thanks for looking on my post

  • New one. If I wanted an old one, and at one point I nearly bought one, it would have to be a third car or just for weekends. I love how they look, but the old one is just terrible at basically everything but some very specific tasks which, if you need the green oval and you desperately need body on frame for some reason, just buy a Discovery 1. It’s the same but much less awful to live with.

    A new one for me, it’s still rugged but it won’t make you need a chiropractor on a daily basis and, unlike the old one, will actually work in the real world for normal people. Plus that and offroad, there isn’t that much the new one can’t do stock that the old one could.

    Anyway, if I was getting an old Defender, I would get a Range Rover Classic, which is still the best pre 1990 Land Rover.

  • Old as the New Defender uses electric sensor tech to determine when traction is lost at a

    spinning wheel then makes compensation to driving wheels for traction. This is great traction control tech for on road vehicles but who is going to clean the hundreds and thousands of sensors after you take New Defender for a mud bath. Electric sensors corrode then break due to water ingress after a few years and are horrid waste of time.

    New Defender new tech 22 K units have been sold. New Bronco old tech has orders for 265 K, so clear folks prefer to buy old?
