Land Rover has brought back the Defender. This is the latest version of that legendary vehicle that was around for so many years. The Defender is an impressive vehicle that has a beautiful interior and a nice, quiet environment as well. It’s designed to be a very capable off-road vehicle, and I’ll have to take their word for it because I didn’t take it off road.

Available in four-cylinder and six-cylinder models, the Defender is a test drive you really ought to take if you’re looking for a very capable off-road SUV. It starts at about $50,000.
