Land Rover on Friday released a new smattering of pictures showing the 2020 Defender tackling the sand dunes in Dubai.
Part of the Defender's testing program ahead of its official unveiling, Land Rover teamed up with the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies to give this little ute the ol' what-for in an area where its buyers are likely to travel.
Land Rover recently renewed its 65-year partnership with the organization.
Temperatures shot past the triple-digit mark, which makes it a great place to suss out the Defender's high-temp behaviors.
It also tackled altitudes well above the one-mile mark, ensuring its engine doesn't choke itself out when the air gets thin.
Land Rover first announced the return of the Defender in late 2018, and it revealed that the model would finally return to the US, as well, following a 23-year absence.
Its boxy good looks have remained hidden by camouflage, but Land Rover has not been shy about throwing out a whole lot of teasers ahead of its anticipated debut.
Even rumors have been few and far between.
If you can't afford one, don't worry, because Lego has a Technic Defender coming out, which should be significantly easier on the wallet.
