Cars are Andrew's jam, as is strawberry. After spending years as a regular ol' car fanatic, he started working his way through the echelons of the automotive industry, starting out as social-media director of a small European-focused garage outside of Chicago. From there, he moved to the editorial side, penning several written features in Total 911 Magazine before becoming a full-time auto writer, first for a local Chicago outlet and then for CNET Cars.

While the Defender 90 was last offered in the US from 1994 to 1997, the larger Defender 110 of that same generation was only on sale in the US in 1993.

US testing will begin in January, and will eventually see the vehicle tackling temperatures between minus 40 degrees and 120 degrees Fahrenheit.

Suffice it to say, the new Defender will be every bit as capable as the ones before it.

It wouldn't be a Land Rover if that wasn't the case.
