Land Rover Defender Baharu Membuktikan Keberaniannya Di Namibia

Banyak yang sudah diperkatakan mengenai Defender Land Rover yang baharu, dan walaupun sebahagian besarnya tidak negatif, buzz sekitar Defender baharu ini pasti di sebelah keraguan.

Berbanding model yang digantinya, Defender baharu tidak mempunyai banyak ciri mudah tetapi mantap yang membentuk sebahagian daripada jenamanya. Tiada casis badan pada bingkai. Tiada gandar hidup. Secara keseluruhannya, Defender baharu mempunyai pilihan elektronik dan kemewahan yang lebih kompleks yang pernah ada sebelumnya.

Tetapi Land Rover tidak mempunyai banyak pilihan. Sangat sedikit off-roader yang serius boleh mengekalkan kesederhanaan mereka dan kekal berdaya maju. Malah, masalah terbesar pengeluar adalah peraturan keselamatan dan pelepasan. Malah Suzuki Jimny yang agak mudah sedang diancam olehnya.

Jadi Land Rover melakukan apa yang mereka lakukan dan menghasilkan Defender yang lebih selamat dan bersih untuk tahun 2020 dan seterusnya. Sudah tentu, ia tidak akan semudah model sebelumnya, tetapi ia pasti mampu. Untuk membuktikan bahawa, syarikat itu telah melakukan segala macam aksi, termasuk aksi SENDIRI dalam filem Bond yang akan datang.

Dan untuk membuktikan betapa reliably kereta mereka boleh melakukan ekstrim off-roading, Land Rover baru-baru ini menganjurkan ekspedisi seluruh Namibia. Di sana, armada kecil SUV Defender 110 baharu menakluk batu, lumpur dan pasir dengan sedikit sokongan.

The Defender 110 offers five, six or 5+2 seating configurations, with a loadspace behind the second-row seats of up to 1,075 litres, and as much as 2,380-litres when the second row is folded. The 90 will be able to accommodate six occupants in a vehicle the length of a compact family hatchback.

User-friendly features include practical touches and advanced technological innovations. Durable rubberised flooring shrugs off the spills of daily adventures and once-in-a-lifetime expeditions, providing a brush or wipe clean interior. An optional Folding Fabric Roof provides an open-top feel and allows passengers in the second-row seats of the 110 to stand up when parked to provide the full safari experience.

The definition of durability

Land Rover’s new purpose-engineered D7x (for extreme) architecture is 95 per cent new and based on a lightweight aluminium monocoque construction to create the stiffest body structure Land Rover has ever produced. It is three times stiffer than traditional body-on-frame designs, providing perfect foundations for the fully independent air or coil sprung suspension and supports the latest electrified powertrains.

The new Defender has been through more than 62,000 tests for engineering sign-off, while the chassis and body architecture have been engineered to withstand Land Rover’s Extreme Event Test procedure – repeated and sustained impacts, above and beyond the normal standard for SUV and passenger cars.

During development testing, prototype models have covered more than 1.2 million kilometres across some of the harshest environments on earth, ranging from the 50-degree heat of the desert and sub 40-degree cold of the Arctic to altitudes of 10,000ft in the Rocky Mountains in Colorado.

A world-class expert off and on-road

Configurable Terrain Response debuts on new Land Rover Defender, allowing experienced off-roaders to fine-tune individual vehicle settings to perfectly suit the conditions, while inexperienced drivers can let the system detect the most appropriate vehicle settings for the terrain, using the intelligent Auto function.

The new body architecture provides ground clearance of 291mm and world-class off-road geometry, giving the 110 approach, breakover and departure angles of 38, 28 and 40 degrees (Off Road height) respectively. Its maximum wading depth of 900mm is supported by a new Wade programme in the Terrain Response 2 system, which ensures drivers can ford deep water with complete confidence.

On dry land, Land Rover’s advanced ClearSight Ground View technology helps drivers take full advantage of Defender’s all-conquering capability by showing the area usually hidden by the bonnet, directly ahead of the front wheels, on the central touchscreen.

As a result, the new Defender redefines breadth of capability, raising the threshold for both off-road ruggedness and on-road comfort. It can negotiate crowded city streets as effortlessly as climbing mountains, crossing deserts and withstanding freezing temperatures. Its carefully honed handling delivers both a rewarding drive and first-class long-haul comfort across all terrains.

Power and efficiency

A choice of advanced petrol and cleaner diesel engines ensure new Land Rover Defender has the power, control and efficiency for any environment, while a Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) powertrain will join the range next year providing the prospect of silent EV-only progress.

At launch, the petrol line-up comprises a four-cylinder P300 and a powerful six-cylinder P400 featuring efficient Mild Hybrid Electric Vehicle technology. Alternatively, customers can choose from a pair of four-cylinder diesels – the D200 and powerful D240 – both of which deliver fuel economy of 37.2mpg (7.6 l/100km) and CO2 emissions of 199g/km (NEDC equivalent).

Innovative engineering solutions support the efficiency drive, including a flat underbody which optimises aerodynamic performance across the line-up.

21st century technology

New Defender is as technologically advanced as it is durable and introduces Jaguar Land Rover’s new Pivi Pro infotainment system. The next generation touchscreen is more intuitive and user-friendly, requiring fewer inputs to perform frequently used tasks, while its always-on design guarantees almost instant responses.

In addition, the new Defender takes Software-Over-The-Air (SOTA) technology to a new level, with 14 individual modules capable of receiving remote updates. By downloading data while customers are asleep at home or in far-flung locations, the new Defender will get better with age: as electronic updates cascade down to the vehicle immediately, without delay and with no need to visit a Land Rover retailer.
