No Time to Die – the upcoming James Bond movie will mark the debut of the all-new 2020 Land Rover Defender. Ten bucks says it’s going to be driven by the bad guys.
Spotted on the Instagram profile @shedlocktwothousand, the image of the all-new 2020 Land Rover Defender gives us a proper uncamouflaged view of the legendary British off-roader’s yet-to-debut model. What appears to be a modified version of the SUV was spotted at the filming location of the upcoming James Bond 007 movie – No Time to Die.
Essentially, we are seeing the highly-anticipated SUV much before we are supposed to. The design is a far cry from the vehicle it replaces and is finally taking cues from the rest of the luxury off-roaders in the family. The boxy styling remains, but everything has been rounded off for a smoother and more modern appearance.
While this image certainly gives potential Defender customers a proper picture of what to expect, it’s only a matter of time before the 2020 Land Rover Defender makes it official debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September. Once launched, the rugged off-roader will have three configurations and half a dozen powertrain options to choose from.
To be sold in 90, 110 and 300 configurations, the 2020 Defender range will offer 3 diesel engines – a 197 hp 2.0-liter, a 237 hp 2.0-liter, and a 296 hp 3.0-liter – as well as 3 petrol engines – a 296 hp 2.0-liter, a 398 hp plug-in hybrid, and a 395 hp 3.0-liter.
As for the 007 movie, Daniel Craig-starrer is the actor’s fifth and final outing as 007 and will feature an array of Aston Martins along with the new Defender. Our bets are on the SUV being a baddie vehicle and we intend to collect our winnings on April 2020.

I’m not going to get in trouble for this — because it’s all over #facebook at the moment! Here is what looks like the first uncovered #defender2020 — straight (apparently) from the film set of the new #bond movie! Makes sense! A few things come to mind. Firstly, the winch is excellent. Secondly, the alpine windows are still there! Thirdly, the rear passenger door looks massive — you’ll never open that in a Tesco car park! Fourthly, there seems to be quite a bit of wheel clearance (though it’s unknown if this is standard height, off road height, or on coils!). Fifthly, checker on the bonnet (yes, the bonnet is a funny shape and there is no real wing to speak of). Sixthly, I’m not sure about the mirrors at all. Seventhly…. well, this could clearly go on a bit! #landroverdefender #allnewdefender #landroverdefender #landrover #thebest4x4xfar #landrovertheworldover #landroverworld #bignews #didntmakefrankfurt #someonesheadwillrollforthis #spyshot #spyfilm #jamesbondfilmset #allnewdefender2020 #newdefender #newdefendernews #newlandroverdefender #defender #landroverdefender #landroverdefender110 #defender110
