So they got rid of all the bits that made it a Defender in the first place and added all the bits from the Discovery? What’s the major difference between the two now? They almost look they are competing again best each other!!!

When I had my old Landy I remember after taking the dogs for a swim I would lift out the seats cushions and hose the whole interior out. Don't think anyone will be doing that with this new one.
Just another icon dead!
More on the new model.

Probably wouldn't, but according to the story I linked, could:

The electronics and connections in the new Defender have been designed to meet the IP67 water immersion standards. That means they can be submerged in one metre of fresh water for an hour without intrusion or damage.

15 - It is able to wade through 900mm of water

Like the Discovery the Defender is rated to wade through 900mm of water. Engineers say it could theoretically deal with deeper water, albeit with risk of the car floating, particularly with any side currents. If you end up in deeper water and the car starts floating, engineers say the doors can be cracked open to allow some water to flow into the cabin, in turn temporarily adding weight to help with traction. Obviously there will be water damage to carpets and trims, but engineers say the electrics should be fine.

OJ.
Jag F pace is also $90k up. From about 2007 old style Defenders old had steel bonnets and doors. It is cheaper, only the doors though as they bolt on and dont need to be welded. Pre 2007 defenders actually had steel frame with aluminium skins on the doors and were a major corrosion/electrolysis problem so probably better this way anyway

We will get bombarded with the "Gushing" media reviews...
It is a very competitive market the Defender is aimed for and it is using some of it old "history" to spring board off with its marketing..better reliability, better off road ability..yadda yadda.
It is a different design, more softer, more of an everyday vehicle with a shed load of bling and electronics..
It might be water proof to some extent...
Can its electronics cope with the Australian outback corrugation and dust?
Only time will tell..
