Right now there are two square and earnestly capable 4x4s on the U.S. market; the Jeep Wrangler (187,111 sales this year so far) and the Mercedes-Benz G-Class (3,075 sales). You might have guessed there’s a big price gap between them. But is there really enough gap in demand for another player?
Land Rover says they’re committed to reviving the Defender nameplate and selling the hell out of it, which leads me to believe they’re bringing it back to America when the new body style drops. As of now, most think that will be the 2019 model year.
