Yeah, see, that's the thing--I can't see the reason to get a Defender over one of these.

You mean Land Rover, right? Or is this some crazy new fancy RR version I've not heard of?

Not being pedantic, just genuinely curious.

To be fair, the LR Defender design was released ahead of the Bronco.

And they don't actually look anything alike, other than being sort of boxy. But it's true both are attempts to plumb the same retro depths of their own respective heritage, the Bronco a little more closely than the LR.

we still haven't seen the actual production bronco yet right?

defender is interesting to me since it goes against traditional offroad setup. Does it with a lot of tech that is at least partially British designed

I mean not in official photos, but there have been enough leaks of final spec vehicles that the design is pretty clear at this point.
