2017 Jeep Wrangler Africa May End Up Killing Land Rover Defender

By  | 

One vehicle that has been difficult to beat is the Land Rover Defender. Things may be about to change though with the 2017 Jeep Wrangler Africa coming our way.

The Jeep Wrangler Africa is going to arrive with the Desert Tan paint and four doors. It will offer the two inch life kit and Fox shocks and it might have Dana 44 axles on the front and the back and the Jeep Performance parts.

The cargo department of the Jeep Wrangler Africa is going to be clean looking as the spare tire is going to be mounted in the underbody mounting.

So is the Jeep Wrangler Africa going to offer what is needed to blow the Land Rover Defender out of the water?

    I thought the last Land Rover Defender already rolled off the production line.

    The traditional “Landy”, the Defender, is done, and no longer in production as of last month, so all Jeep is doing is trying to fill a gap in the market.. However I very much doubt that those who like the Defender, and all it stood for, will jump ship to Chrysler..they will wait to see the new Defender in a couple of yrs. So to say that this Jeep Wrangler “Africa” will dethrone the Defender is misleading.. its just a pretending eying an empty throne.. Come back in 33 yrs and tell me if Jeep is as good..
