The newest version of the Land Rover DC100 Concept had already been scheduled to debut at the New York Auto Show but it was actually unveiled days before. So far, the Land Rover DC100 Expedition is the toughest version of the concept that previews the next-generation Defender.
The car displayed at the New York auto show is apparently what Land Rover boss John Edwards was referring to when he said that he intended to present the traditional Defender abusability on the new DC100.
The Expedition comes with a new White and orange paint job. Its rugged elements include a winch, snorkel, a roof rack, bull bar, more prominent towing eyes, more black trim and bigger 275/55 Cooper tyres with five-spoke black alloys.
There had been previous versions of the DC100 concept since last September’s Frankfurt motor show. The different versions have been seen as well in Dubai, Tokyo, Los Angeles, Delhi aside from Frankfurt and New York. What Land Rover hopes to get from these presentations is some live feedback on how this model will evolve. The next-generation Defender is expected to arrive in 2015.
