It takes a lot of work to live up global all-terrain capabilities, and Land Rover is putting in the hours and miles. The new Land Rover Defender prototype fleet has racked up 745,645 miles during development so far. Land Rover’s “go anywhere” reputation is being put to the test at the Borana Conservancy in Kenya. That’s where the Defender is being challenged to meet the demands of towing, wading and carrying supplies. This is one of the more than 45,000 tests the Defender is facing in some of the most inhospitable places around the globe. Naturally this kind of rugged work out is nothing new for land Rover. They’ve been doing this for 71 years. Once the new Land Rover Defender finishes proving itself in the wild, we expect to see its world premiere later this year.
