Land Rover Defender | Unique Status Piece

We review the 2021 Land Rover Discovery and the huge amount of engineering. It is rare for something to have this level of character and capability while also trying to capture an old way of doing things. While there are other products like the Jeep Wrangler, Toyota Land Cruiser, and Prado or 4Runner, the Discovery is definitely unique.

    I have not read any comments, when I stubbled across this channel I liked it, but I just searched the Defender and came back to this channel from results. Now I have had 4 beers and I am in Lockdown but why does this duo not work for me. In this new world do we have to be PC with everything or should we just have mates talking abut a car. Do you know what I mean?

    You have some confusing explanations. Does it have a electric traction motor like a hybrid that you say gives it another 100 hp? Or are you just talking about the electric supercharger that is set up before a regular turbo charger?

    In 20 years, 99.9% of Defenders will be in the junkyard because they are too expensive to repair. Meanwhile, a good portion of the "primitive" JL Wranglers will still be on the road, albeit with many repairs and modifications. And the Land Cruiser 70 will still be in production, virtually unchanged except for perhaps an electric powertrain. Land Rover succeeded in making a second Discovery and attaching a famous name plate. It is optimized for the rich to go mall crawling, and maybe a once in a lifetime trip to see a national park while staying at nice hotel nearby. Nobody in their right mind would overland this thing unless they had a certified JLR mechanic following along in a second vehicle, preferably a Jeep or Toyota that can take them back to civilization if the Defender is unrepairable.

    If you think a warranty is the answer to reliability issues clearly you have never had to drive a rental unit for months at a time while a LR dealer has your vehicle. Absolutely a clown comment to make when justifying the LR reliability issue.

    So I really enjoyed the review. Except the parts where you basically reverse judge the affluent for buying this. Who cares if Buffy & Muffy buy one to drive to their golf course? You sound ALMOST snarky in a ‘99% of people who buy this don’t need its skill set’ Let people buy whatever they want and don’t judge ‘em for liking what they like. I don’t want to say you sound jealous but you definitely came off like just because you’d take yours off-road you’re cooler than the affluent crowd who never would.

    OK, i love you guys's reviews. they are always in-depth, thorough, and complete with both statistical information and your educated opinions. Your review of the Lexus ES was the capper for buying a 2020 for my wife and she loves it. But i had to comment on the reliability comment of 'its complitacted'. Cmon now...this thing is marketed, and is replacing a vehicle that is supposedly built to drive across the continent of Africa or Australia. To give the excuse that its 'complicated' as being one of the reasons that LRs breakdown sooooo quickly and easily is a huge cop-out IMHO. The guy who is known for doing such drives, Pierre White, drives older Land Cruisers and such because they are reliable and his are complicated too. People who do want a reliable car flock to things like the 4Runner. if JLR wants to build a more reliable vehicle, then spend the money in R&D, do the engineering work, and build it. All cars are complicated. How about taking 10% of that out of your products, and just make them last at least as long as the owner is paying off the note. And before someone says im a hater, i owned a Disco from 1995-1999 and loved it, until i didnt because the dayum thing started to do just what we all know LRs do...break, then break again, then break some more...i want to love this Discovery, but ill keep my 4Runner...to paraphrase the joke, 'the LR got me there, my 4Runner ALWAYS gets me back'

    You simply cannot beat the Durability, versatility, and reliability of a Body On Frame Construction. When it comes to Comparing this with a Wrangler, the Defender may be more comfortable On Road, but the Wrangler will easily outlast this ; Simple Non hybrid Engines , manual transmission, and front + rear Live Axles. Anyone that complains about the Wranglers driving characteristics is not the intended audience.
