Repairer Driven News: 2020 Land Rover Defender

Repairer driven news (RDN) released an article on the changes to the 2020 Land Rover Defender. This Defender is no longer a body over frame design. In fact, the structure of this vehicle is unlike any other Land Rover model with its own new platform. The “purpose-engineered” D7x platform was built to be the stiffest structure Land Rover has ever made. The body of this vehicle is aluminum intensive and lightweight.

Along with the structural changes, this vehicle also comes with an optional factory satin paint film. Although the wrap is extremely durable, it can be removed at any time if repairs are needed.

The redesigned Defender has optional features that the repairer should keep in mind, as these systems could need calibration. Some examples of the new features are:

  • rear view mirror that can be switched to a rear camera feed
  • 3D surround camera (360 camera)
  • next generation braking technology
