    Rumorpile: Land Rover Goes Truckin

    Land Rover is reportedly working on a pickup version of the new Defender. What Car? has learned from the brand's design head, Gerry McGovern that the new variation will be a ‘premium’ product to compete with the likes of the Volkswagen Amarok. Sources say the truck will be offered in a crew cab and boast best-in-class off-road capacity thanks in part to a permanent four-wheel drive system.

    McGovern says the truck could go on sale as early as 2017, a year after the new Defender goes on sale.

    I read that the next Defender was going to be unitized and FWD based. If this is true it will make a subpar bases for a pickup!

    Seriously doubt it: the Defender is JLR's hard-core off roader and I expect it to remain so.
