    Ah.. well from the BMW forums it seems that the twin turbo 4.4 v8 is a powerful but very unreliable motor. Unless you meant the twin turbo straight 6 petrol engines.

    this is what I read online: https://www.motor1.com/news/361481/j...ngines-rumors/

    ...

    At this point, the information is not confirmed and it’s not known which engines will be used by Jaguar Land Rover and in which models they will be installed. However, a recent rumor suggests the refreshed Jaguar F-Type could get the Bavarian brand’s 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 and this could be the first JLR model to switch to BMW power. Interestingly, a spokesman for JLR confirmed to WardsAuto the automaker has “no plans to outsource the manufacture” of its four- and six-cylinder Ingenium gasoline and diesel engines.


    The company’s plant northwest of Birmingham will be responsible for the production of the next-generation electric powertrains that will be jointly developed with BMW. “The facility has also been confirmed as the home of our global Electric Drive Unit (EDU) production,” Joan Chesney, JLR corporate communications manager, comments. “We have confirmed we are working with BMW on the joint development of next-generation EDUs for our future vehicles.”

    Doesn't look terrible. Not WOW either. Bland. Remove the word "defender" on the bonnet and there's nothing left to remind of Defender. Could easily have passed as the next generation Daewoo (aka, Chevrolet) Trailblazer. Roofline appears chopped ala Hummer 2.

    from that view - the back reminds me of a Kia Soul.
    If it didn't say defender on the front, would you even know its a Defender - in my mind - No. It's just another offering from Land Rover / Range Rover

    What is the thing on the front grille just above the number plate?
