2023 Land Rover Defender 130 Official Reveal Happens on May 31st

The Land Rover Defender 130 will offer ultimate off-roading comfort and luxury for seven of your friends

  • It will offer seating for up to eight passengers.

  • The 130 will be available in Canada and the US.

The extra-stretched version, the 130, of Land Rover’s popular Defender will officially hit the stage on May 31st and bring with it an extra generous serving of inches behind the rear axles for more passenger room.

The new 2023 Land Rover Defender 130 will share the 110’s existing 119-inch wheelbase but the big difference will lie in overall length. While the 110 is available with seating for up to seven thanks to the addition of a pair of third-row jump seats, the 130 will offer a real third row. The 130 will provide seating for three in the final row, mimicking the second row’s setup.

As far as powertrains are concerned, we remain convinced that the P300 version, with the turbocharged 2.0-litre 4-cylinder engine, will not be offered as with the 110. This would leave the P400 (supercharged V6) and the P525 with the boosted V8 engine.

Incidentally, back in the day, the 90, 110, and 130 monikers referred to the vehicle’s wheelbase, which is no longer the case.

We’ll find out more about the 2023 Land Rover Defender 130 at the very end of May.
