A few months ago, just before customers could no longer order a brand new Land Rover Defender, the brochure for the off-road icon featured 13 different models.
Okay, that’s not very many by, say, the standards of a BMW 3 Series. But consider this: every single model had the same engine and gearbox. The only differences between any of them were body style.
