Instead of that, there was this insane, Baja bombing, off road destroying, 4x4 pickup with massive fenders, amazing shocks, and looks to die for.PHOTO: Carlo Chungunco

The old one went out of production not just because it was dangerous and polluting, but because too few people wanted it. It s a misconception that farmers and coastguards and roadbuilders and humanitarian agencies and UN peacekeepers need a new Defender that s like the old one. They all drive Mitoyoniszu 4x4 pickups these days. The original Land Rover was great, but by the end it was also terrible.

However, the redesign of six major models could pay off for Nissan given the signs of aging shown by the current product range. Indeed, the Sentra sedan is due for a complete overhaul, and the same comment can be applied to the Rogue, Pathfinder and Qashqai SUVs.
