Land Rover DC100( Land Rover )
With the exception of Jeeps Wrangler, few vehicles have stuck to their heritage more steadfastly than Land Rovers Defender. Yet, unlike the Wrangler, the Defenders career in the U.S. was about as short as David Beckhams; it debuted in 1993 and an impending change in crash regulations sent it packing after 1997.
But a comeback may be imminent.
