I'm just thinking about capabilities. If I cared about reliability, I wouldn't own or have owned half the stuff I have lol. Including the JK. This concept vehicle just doesn't do it for me. Certainly not anything to consider over a wrangler. I will say though that a few of it's features like the sonar thing sound cool.

What a turd. I've seen rally cars with more ground clearance then that. I've always kinda liked rovers but this one looks awful. just another high dollar suv that might drive on a gravel road from time to time. Also with rovers electronics history I cringe at the thought of more electronics
Notice the playground it's in....a bunch of smooth dirt hills.
Can't see too many switching to that for reasons already listed not to mention I don't believe there's a moniker left in auto industry with loyalty that jeep has and enjoys which only seems to grow in my opinion. If I ever have to get a new vehicle to replace my tj it'll be a jk and I'm sure I'm not the only one who says that.
Plenty of Defenders down here in Costa Rica. You see Gringos and rich farmers driving them all the time (as well as vintage Toyota Land Cruisers). Nearly bought one as it was a fraction of the cost of my Wrangler in the second hand market. The guy that was selling drove it to my house and it turns out he was the mechanic representing the seller.
When you have a full time mechanic on standby, you can't help but wonder. It validates all the street talk about Land Rovers as a brand. The mechanic freelancea and his phone wA ringing off the wall from clients. ..even told me that it would cost 5-10k in parts and service a year if I'm not careful. Looks badass but I choose reliability over that anyday. Perhaps the new models are built better.
I have owned 4 jeeps. One if the worst decisions I made was trading my 03 Rubi in for a LR. Was worst vehicle I ever had but needed more room for a growing family. Needless to say I traded it in on a new jeep. Still wish I had some of my other jeeps but my new one is great. We all learn from our mistakes.
