    So if Landrover won't do it somebody else will instead.

    Personally I doubt it'll fill the void due to the dealer network. From what I've seen on the farms I've visited isuzu and John Deere have done well from the defenders demise

    Yes I think the ford ranger has already filled the gap.

    Following on from the new Defender thread, I really do like the new D90. However, not the price as last night I thought I'd spec' a reasonably standard'ish D90 with a few low key options. The cost came to £58k !! For some years now I've been a fan of Ineos founder/CEO, Jim Ratcliffe. He's the type of determined character that UK plc needs more of. And I especially like his commercial courage in launching a new automotive company in a sector that's already quite full. If the Ineos design is broad mass appealing and UV [see what I did there...? no 'S'] price is correct I see no reason why the Grenadier cannot be a roaring success, and not just in the UK. I wish him and the new company every bloody success.
