The idea of a pickup truck based on the new Land Rover Defender isn’t exactly new as we’ve heard executives from the company talk about it before.

Defender’s chief engineer recently spoke to media representatives and claimed this is indeed a very good idea. The model hasn’t been given the green light yet.

Land Rover has added the long-wheelbase Defender 130 model to its lineup but we don’t know whether Collins was referring to it or something else back in February 2021 – a Defender truck, for example.

The automaker recently added a third shift to the model’s assembly line in Slovakia, which means the off-roader is now produced on a 24-hour schedule.

Frith told Drive the automaker has finally achieved “the right balance of supply and demand” with the Defender, which probably means it has solved all supplier issues, at least for now.
