It’s really intriguing to see how similar the 1995 Discovery is size wise to the new 90.
Pretty cool to see how close all the dimensions are except for width. New Defender is 9" wider (although they don't specify with either if that includes mirrors). For comparison my Ram 2500 is 80" without mirrors.

Fun part of the Edmunds system is ability to compare. Data is all manufacturers and even they can screw up. How about a 95 Defender v 95 Discovery, v 14 LR4 v 21 90

That's really cool. Crazy how much of a porker the LR4 is! 5655 lbs

Having been behind the wheel when this happened, those new Defender vids don't look particularly cringe-worthy. Very impressive how little damage there is, actually. Seems to be a very safe vehicle.
Oh shoot, hopefully you and any passengers were OK Barry. By "cringe worthy" I meant more of: you know the crash is coming, because it is a crash test, but still are mildly shocked when it actually happens

Took a road trip to Chicago last week, saw 2-3 on the highway out, including one towing a U-Haul trailer with a 5 Series BMW on it. Saw another 5-7 in the city. Up to this point I hadn't seen a single one in my small town. Surprised to see that many in one trip of a first model year vehicle.

I've seen quite a few in Pittsburgh's South Hills. Some are plain, some are tricked out with the roof rack and pollen sacks on the side, but nobody waves at me in my D1.
