2020 Land Rover Defender

2020 Land Rover Defender 90

Los Angeles Auto ShowThe 2019 Los Angeles Auto Show marks the North American debut of the 2020 Land Rover Defender, after the vehicle’s world debut at the Frankfurt Auto Show earlier this year. The original Land Rover Defender was a rugged, tradition-bound off-road vehicle that was developed in the early 1980s and last sold in the U.S. market in 1997. The 2020 Defender is a thorough re-imagining of the original; it maintains the boxy basic profile, but adds smoother, more refined styling and a host of up-to-date technology features.

2020 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon EcoDiesel

Consumer Guide Automotive

Jeep’s iconic Wrangler has been selling like the proverbial hotcakes of late, its 2018 redesign making it all the more popular. So some might question what the company expects to gain by adding a turbodiesel engine to the Wrangler’s option list.

Odds are, you already know that Ford is bringing to market a pair of off-road-oriented trucks for the 2021 model year. Ford has been teasing the duo of for so long I expect to see examples on the used-car market already. In fact, we’ve seen neither truck yet, but do know a fair amount about them.

2020 Jeep Gladiator

While FCA (Fiat Chrysler Automobiles) isn’t setting many sales records with its cars, its trucks are on fire. Jeep is maintaining its traditionally strong sales numbers, and Ram pickups have recently outsold Chevrolet’s (!!!) to become the nation’s #2-selling trucks behind the Ford F-Series. That’s huge.

Note: The following story was excerpted from the December 2018 issue of Collectible Automobile magazine.

Hummer was badly wounded in 2008, first by the rapid rise in gasoline prices and then by the increasingly shaky economy.
