The all-new Land Rover Defender is here and it has been well worth the wait. Epitomising Land Rover's tradition of total reliability this powerhouse of a vehicle also makes the most of 21st-century technology and innovations.
Designed for endurance
Built from the toughest materials yet. Boasting the strongest Land Rover structure ever. Tested to the ultimate. The 2020 update of the Land Rover Defender has been designed for maximum endurance. Its solid platform allows it to withstand a seven-tonne upward load through the suspension. Its optional winch, tucked in behind the front grille, can pull up to 4,536kg from a distance of 45 metres, while each snatch point can cope with six tonnes of force.
This exceptional car laughs at extreme conditions and shrugs at the roughest terrains. It feels comfortable, confident and carefree whether you're navigating city streets, braving country lanes or churning through fields of mud.
Extra durability can be achieved by choosing a matt finish developed specifically for the new Defender. It enables lighter scuffs and scratches to ‘heal’ as the material reforms in the warmth of the sun. This finish can also be replaced in sections if necessary.
A Land Rover for the 21st century
The Land Rover Defender offers you an irresistible combination of inspired design and engineering integrity. Its silhouette is reassuringly recognisable as a classic Land Rover, as are the fierce round headlights and interior alpine lights. But you can tell instantly that this model is way out of the ordinary. The highlights include an all-new platform, technology, and significantly larger dimensions.
Innovations to the Land Rover Defender 2020 include short front and rear overhangs to improve its geometry and capability. To achieve this, hardware including the battery, cooling circuits and spare wheel are now fixed to the side-opening rear door, helping to enhance off-road performance.
Rather than solid axles, this model is based on double-wishbone front suspension and Integral Link independent rear suspension. You can choose coil-sprung suspension or air on the 90s, while the 110 variants are only available with air suspension.
To support you on your 21st-century travels, it features Land Rover's most intuitive technologies so far, ensuring convenience, connectivity and visibility. These include Clearsight Ground View as part of the 3D Surround Camera system, for extra clarity and reassurance, it enables you to see ‘through’ your Defender’s bonnet, displaying multiple exterior views, including the car’s underside and wheels.
The interior is both luxurious and spacious. As standard, the Land Rover Defender will be able to seat five people, extending to six with an optional central ‘jump seat’ in the front row.
What will the new Land Rover Defender cost?
Land Rover has announced that there will be both three-door 90 and five-door 110 versions of the new car, with the 110 already available and priced at £45,240. And for the first time ever, you'll be able to buy a Land Rover Defender with a plug-in hybrid engine.
